Spiced caramel apple

Tonight I got into one of my late night baking moods and decided to make something new, spiced caramel apple :) Since it was late and I was pretty beat I cheated a little and started out with a boxed spice cake, I then chopped up and added in 2 cups of granny smith apples, topped it with my cream cheese frosting (recipe listed under my pumpkin posting) and finally topped it off with a drizzle of caramel :) They were a big hit!

Birthday cupcakes

I've been a little behind on my blogging so thought I'd take some time to catch up. My son turned 4 in June (told you I was behind lol) and he said he wanted chocolate cupcakes, with blue frosting.I also filled them with custard :)I decorated them with this adorable edible silver heart confetti I found at Michaels Craft Store.

Ingredients for Cream Custard Recipe
•1/3 cup melted butter
•1/3 cup flour
•Yolks of four eggs
•1 cup sugar
•1 1/2 cups sweet milk
1.Cream flour and melted butter together.
2.Beat yolks and add the sugar.
3.Heat the milk until it is scalded, then pour it into the flour mixture.
4.Mix in the egg mixture.
5.Cook in double boiler until thick.
6.Add any desired flavoring.

Banana Split

Who doesn't like a banana split, right? They have such a wonderful mixture of flavors but don't exactly travel or have much of a shelf life, ice cream and all ;) So I decided to create a banana split cupcake.

Started out with the very important banana cake base, added vanilla frosting and of course a sundae wouldn't be complete without all the fudge,sprinklers,nuts and a cherry on top :D


We're big snickerdoodle fans in our house so one day after baking several batchs I had to create a snickerdoodle cupcake...ofcourse LOL

So I baked a vanilla cinnamon cake a topped it with cinnamon sugar frosting not only did they smell amazing but they tasted just like the cookies :D
