More Cupcakes!!

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

I was sad when it was announced that Iron Cupcake: Earth was no more. It was a significant factor in my getting seriously interested in pastry, leading me to experiment with recipes and learn how to make a real buttercream. It was on hiatus for a while as its fate was being determined, and I […]

Red Varrrrrrlvet

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

I postulated about a month or so ago that I wondered if one could make red velvet mochi cake. I have absolutely no idea why this popped into my head (I’m not even really a fan of red velvet) but I decided it would be worth a try. How hard could it be? A little […]

Traveling Cakes

I’m back from my apartment hunt and still catching up on basically everything, so this will be short. And sweet, or so I’m told.

Coconut & Lime

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

I really love making madeleines. They’re absolutely adorable all tiny and scallopy from my mini madeleine pan. I was extra excited when I got my coconut oil from Tropical Traditions because it would be a perfect addition to madeleines, I figured.

A Slight Departure

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Here’s another little lavender something I whipped up before my trip to bring to my best friend in New York.

Tropical Comfort Food

Monday, March 30th, 2009

This was a first for me – I don’t have any childhood memories of eating bowls of comforting rice pudding. In a household where skim milk and frozen yogurt reign, you don’t get indulgences like that. Not that I didn’t have awesome desserts growing up, just nothing that contained full-fat cream.

Adding to the Confusion

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

I feel fairly confident in saying that every single person (at least in the US) who has ever made, eaten or even mentioned macarons has had to explain themselves. No, they are NOT macaroons. So stop looking at me like I sprouted a third eye when I go on about how delicate and finicky they […]

Iron Cupcake December: Chocolate!!

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

Okay, cupcake number one!  The second one will follow in the next couple of days, since I have a lot of just plain FANTASTIC naked chocolate cupcakes left over and I’ll be picking up my other ingredient tomorrow.  I just have to figure out how I’m going to use them together!
