Brown Sugar Sheet Cake with Salted Caramel Stove-Top Buttercream

I have had my “stuck on a deserted island with one food” scenario planned out for years ((um, Chick-fil-A original chicken sandwich)). But after taking the first bite of this cake, I officially changed my mind. This cake — no kidding. If I was stuck in a deserted island and could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I would choose this cake. Now, if I could just find that deserted island. Continue reading

Creme Brûlée Bars

While meal planning for our yearly family vacay at the lake, I began daydreaming about dessert possibilities. I knew right off the bat I would be making these Cheesecake-filled Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars ((and they were SO good)).

I have been searching for a yummy new bar cookie recipe and recently came across this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had found “the one”.

Miss Colleen’s Perfect Pound Cake ((a time-tested vintage recipe))

Well over a year ago, I was visiting mom & dad’s church. Actually, I was visiting the church AND the potluck dinner & I tasted this pound cake — buttery, dense, moist with a hint of lemon. I instantly began searching for the baker who made such a delicious PERFECT pound cake. I was not surprised to learn Miss Colleen was the talent behind the cake. I asked if she would mind sharing her recipe and  Continue reading

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake with Stovetop Caramel Buttercream ((Birthday Cake time!!))

Whew!! What a cake this is! But before I tell you all about this cake, let me tell you a little about the birthday boy. He was born 11 years ago today at 4:06 am. I am so proud of the fact that he was born in the middle of the night mostly because all of my other babies came around lunchtime with “planned” deliveries ((none were textbook and ho-hum but those are stories for another day)).  Continue reading

Birthday Cake Cheesecake with Sweet Almond Buttercream & Sprinkles

Cheesecake is Shepy Ray’s favorite dessert. So, as his 9th ((wow — seems like he should be 4, sniff)) birthday approached, I started making cheesecake plans. Shepy wanted Sour Cherry Topped Homemade Vanilla Cheesecake. However, I had something more birthday-ish” in mind. Something sprinkl-ey and layered with buttercream. Yes, I went there! I combined the perfect buttercream cake & the perfect cheesecake into one dessert. And I liked it.  Continue reading
