Kona Pie

kona pie On my last trip to Hawaii, my family and I went to Kona and ate at Big Island Grill.  The food was delicious, but what I loved the most was the “Kona Pie”.  Kona Pie is rich creamy mocha almond fudge ice cream piled high on an Oreo cookie crust, topped with fresh homemade whipped cream, hot fudge, and macadamia nuts! Yum! We went back several times to this restaurant just for the Kona Pie! Since I have been home, my husband and I have had cravings for Kona Pie many times.  I knew this would have to be my next dessert for my blog.  Since there is no recipe from the Big Island Grill, I made my own.   It is super easy with only 3 ingredients!  I hope you like it as much as I do!

tiramisuTiramisu is a popular coffee-flavored Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavored with cocoa.  I first had this delicious dessert at my friend Mike’s Italian restaurant.  I always want to order it every time I go, but sometimes they run out of the Tiramisu.  I decided I needed to learn how to make it myself!

I made a WASC cake, which stands for White almond sour cream cake.  You start with a basic white cake mix then add sour cream, almond extract, sugar, flour, eggs and water.  See how perfectly these cakes turned out, no dark crust!

Lemon Raspberry Cake

inside1This cake is a four layer light and springy lemon cake, filled with seedless raspberry filling, frosted with a delicious lemon cream cheese frosting, and topped with a tangy lemon curd and fresh raspberries! I made this cake for my husband, who really loves cream cheese frosting.  Every time I make a new cake the first thing he asks is “what kind of frosting does it have?” He thinks buttercream is too sweet, but always appreciates a cake with cream cheese frosting or whip cream frosting.  So while I was going to use a lemon buttercream for this cake, I changed my mind and decided to go with the cream cheese frosting.  It was an excellent choice and I think it complimented the cake perfectly!
