Heaven and Hell Cake

by angelika on September 7, 2013

Stephen had a birthday, and as is tradition, the kids and I scoured cookbooks and the internet looking for the perfect cake to bake him. Last year we reinvented Banoffee Pie into a Banoffee Cake. This year we decided to go with a Heaven and Hell cake. It’s Devil’s Food, Angel’s Food and peanut butter […]


Strawberry Earth Cake

by angelika on December 5, 2012

My firstborn turned 6 over Thanksgiving which is bittersweet. He is definitely not a baby anymore. Q actually really never was a baby. I always joked that he was born a toddler, full of attitude and getting into trouble around every corner. At 5 he was practicing his teenager, and really became proficient. Now he thinks he knows […]

  Poppy turned three and we had one heck of a rainbow party in her honor. The whole house was decked out in rainbow fashion, complete with a rainbow jumpy house and an entire menu of rainbow themed food. We had such a blast coming up with food for the rainbow party; the menu will […]

German Chocolate Cake

by angelika on November 8, 2010

A good friend of mine had a milestone birthday last weekend. These birthdays signify the beginning of a  new era. A new step forward, a deeper level of maturation. Like a fine Bordeaux, no? Not that I would really know, as I have been turing 29 for years. The easiest way for me to show […]


The Ultimate Coconut Cake

by angelika on October 12, 2010

It’s my birthday this week. Truthfully, I don’t much care for celebrating the passing of my years anymore, and I am not sure how much longer I can “hold” at 29. (you think 7 times is overkill?) One thing they did not write about in the parenting handbook, is how important birthdays will be to your […]
