Red Velvet Cupcakes

I got an email a few days ago asking about bakeries in the New York area that make good parve red velvet cupcakes. Since I tend to make most of my desserts I didn’t have any good advice, so if anyone else knows of a good place please leave a comment letting me know. The […]



S’more Cupcakes

As I mentioned in my last post, once I had made graham cracker cupcakes my mind immediately turned to smores. I had some extra batter left over from baking the bases for the ice cream cupcakes, and decided to make mini cupcakes (mostly because I had cute new mini cupcake papers I wanted to use).

One of the reasons I have not been blogging lately, besides just being extremely busy with finishing up school (I am being ordained on Thursday!), is that I have been experimenting with my own recipes.

Ok, so maybe that is an exaggeration, but strawberry rhubarb happens to be one of my favorite flavor combinations of all time. Actually, it is really the rhubarb that I love. As a kid I used to eat it raw, straight out of the garden at camp. So when I saw fresh, local rhubarb in the store […]
