Rainbow Cookie Cake

This is my absolute favorite dessert!  Instead of having it in small bite sized cookies I used a checkerboard cake pan (but unfortunately I didn't put the colors in the correct order).

The checkerboard cake pans make this delicious dessert so simple to make.

To make this dessert follow my tricolor cookie recipe (x3) and use a checkerboard cake pan :) <3.

Heart Cake

Looks like a boring (slightly messy) bakery cake... until you slice it up :).

This seemly ordinary yellow cake coated in a chocolate cream topped with chocolate ganache is anything but ordinary.  Every slice has a little extra love baked in ...

Following Directions

Hey guys, sorry for not posting anything in a while.  I thought tonight I would finally have a few things to post but instead I wound up with a disaster and nothing delicious to show for my efforts.  At least I have a little advice to share based on this experience...

Mistake: Adding Too Much Batter:

A while ago I wanted to try something new and exciting,  but the recipe must have
left out a few ingredients because I wound up with a bunch  of mushy nothingness
which only consisted of brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and butter.
So today when I tried a new cake mold that called for one box of cake mix I was 
skeptical about the directions because it didn't look like the mold was even almost 
filled, thus I made another box of cake mix to add.  NEVER DO THAT!!!!!!!!!!!

Result: Uncooked/burnt cake, huge mess in the oven, two wasted boxes of cake mix and a lot of wasted time.
