Cakey Sneak Peek

 This is a cake I'm making for this weekend. Can you guess what movie its from?

There's been a few changes to the design so it won't look exactly like this in the end, and I think I might add another tier just for the heck of it.

 I finished sculpting the frog last night. He looks really ghostly with no color. I was really frustrated with this little guy, he started out looking like HR Pufnstuf then looked like Slimer from Ghostbusters before he had his arms & legs. I wish I had gotten a bit of a better tilt of his head but sometimes i just doesn't work out that way and you have to let the sugar do what it want to.

TWD: Maple Cornmeal Biscuits

If your anything like me, your not at all opposed to breakfast at any time of the day. Nothing is quicker and more comforting after a long day of work than a good plate of scrambled eggs. Add a side of bacon and a little gravy drizzled with Chipotle Chalula and I'm a happy girl. It maybe odd for some, but for me its just the right thing.

These biscuits are perfectly sweet in my opinion. Almost like someone already put the honey on it for you. You can find the full recipe on pg 24 of Baking from my Home to Yours or visit Lindsay at A Little Something.... Sweet. Excellent choice Lindsay!

TWD: Brown Sugar Bundt Cake

Not much to say about this yummy little bundt cake. I used almond for the nutty bits and replaced 1/2 of the A/P Flour with whole wheat for good measure. The brown sugar lent enough moisture that it wasn't obvious at all... or maybe it was all the butter that disguised it.

This recipe begs to be made again and again because it was really easy and from all the other posts this week, its fun to dink around with and switch things up.

You can grab the recipe this week from Peggy over at Pantry Revisited.
