Pink Rose Swirl Cake

rose swirl cakeI am so excited about this cake because I used a new recipe for the frosting! I usually made a basic buttercream frosting, but this time I tried the Swiss meringue buttercream.  It worked like a dream! The flowers held up, and there weren’t any air bubbles.  Also I have to say that it is much tastier, it is a little less sweet. This frosting is perfect for my husband  who doesn’t really enjoy super sweet frosting.

Apple Pie Layer Cake with Apple Roses

apple layer cakeApples are my favorite part of the fall season.  I love apple pies, and this time I wanted to try to incorporate an apple pie into a layer cake.  I have seen cakes on pinterest where they actually take a whole apple pie and bake it inside a cake! I thought that was fascinating! I decided not to try it this time, but I made my own version of apple pie cake :) I took an apple cake with chunks of apple inside, and layered it with apple pie filling, Dutch apple pie crumbs, and cream cheese frosting! This was also my first attempt at making a naked cake! Continue reading

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!
