Cake Batter Cookies with Chocolate Frosting


I know it’s December tomorrow, but I’m not feeling super Christmassy right now.  It doesn’t snow in AZ and it’s only cold enough for sweaters (my favorite winter thing ever!) in the morning and later at night. I’ve been on a big Mumford & Sons kick lately. I’ve got the playlist shuffling their songs while Thing 1 and I bake. The Cave and White Blank Page are such amazing songs.

Black Cocoa Cake with Peanut Butter Filling & Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting

Black Cocoa Cake with Penut Butter EFAT

I have a bit of a problem.  Ever since I won Baked Elements from Valerie, I’ve been obsessed with Baked.  I follow Baked on Instagram – you should too, they will make you happy.  I like them on Facebook.  I follow them on Pinterest.  I make my house smell amazing and all my friends jealous with their recipes.  Everything they touch is insane in the best possible way. Oh, and Baked is a bakery in

Corn Casserole & Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting


I love eating, I don’t think that’s a secret.  Maybe that’s why Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday.  Turkey, potatoes, stuffing, cranberry anything, desserts, sides, the array of fall flavors is endless.  Two of my favorite fall flavors are corn and pumpkin.  When Unilever asked me to share a couple great Thanksgiving recipes I knew just what to make.  The best part was that I already had a tub of

Jack Daniels Bottle Cake


If I’ve never mentioned it before, Mike works for an adult beverage distribution company.  We end up with all kinds of fun shwag around the house.  Today was the best!  He brought me home a Jack Daniel’s bottle cake mold and label stencil.  How cool is that?!?? I immediately wanted to make the cake happen.  I talked Mike into hitting Michael’s for food coloring.  I didn’t own a nice spatula for

Muppets Most Wanted Cupcakes

Muppets Most Wanted Cupcakes 2

Please tell me you’ve see Muppets Most Wanted!  We hardly ever go to the movie theater anymore, but this movie is so freaking funny.  A) I heart Ricky Gervais.  B) It’s the Muppets. Who doesn’t love the Muppets?  C) The boys know all the songs now.  D) I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve watched this movie in the lat two weeks.  It’s A LOT!  To keep the fun

Turkey Cookies

Turkey Cookies FEAT

The weather has finally changed here. It’s rainy and cold (Arizona cold, not New York cold) and time for sweaters…yippee! I know I said I’d almost never mention the weather, but I am going somewhere with this. My favorite colder weather activity is baking. Even if it means I end up eating all the cookies myself because Mike’s sweet tooth is on hiatus. I’ve been putting together my Thanksgiving menu

Owl-dorable Cupcakes


A few weeks ago our friends Kyle & Elizabeth had their daughter Mallory’s first birthday.  It was owl themed and Elizabeth made all kinds of cute decorations.  But my favorite things she made were these owl-dorable cupcakes.  You see what I did there? These cuties are super easy to make.  Bake off your favorite cupcakes and top with whatever frosting you like.  If you use a frosting white in color,

Triple Pineapple Luau Cake

Triple Pineapple Luau Cake | White Lights on Wednesday

A couple months ago my friend Vina asked me to make her daughter’s birthday cake.  She wanted pineapple and it was a luau themed party.  That’s all the info I got.  Then Tayun (Vina’s daughter) sent me cake idea pictures.  I almost died.  One was a two-tier fondant covered cake with gum paste, hand painted orchids.  Another was white fondant with a surfer made from modeling chocolate.  Ummm…what did Vina tell

Amy’s Chocolate Pudding Cupcakes


I’m merging my worlds today, and bringing a little bit of work to the blog.  Amy is my super funny, awesome, wicked nice supervisor.  {I swear I’m not just saying all this because I’ll know she’ll read this.  Hi Amy!}  Within the first month of starting my job, Amy brought chocolate cupcakes in for everyone.  I figured they were just chocolate cupcakes – per the usual.  Not so.  These cupcakes

Orange Crush Cupcakes


So, one of my co-workers has a big ol’ crush on Orange Crush.  She wears an Orange Crush shirt, has a lunch box, and goes off on it in general.  See…   I promised her, I’d crop the photo.  I’m legit like this.  So for Trish we have Orange Crush Cupcakes.  These bad boys got her seal of approval, which is a big deal.  The shirt was a condition of

Chocolate Dr. Pepper Cake

Batman Cake 2

I’ve been wanting to make this cake recipe forever.  Mike is the biggest Dr. Pepper fiend I know.  It’s bad.  Really bad.  He almost took his best friend (a Dr. Pepper enthusiast as well) to the Dr. Pepper facorty in Texas for said friend’s Bachelor Party.  I’m serious. As a surprise for Otto’s birthday, I finally made a Dr. Pepper cake.  My original inspiration came from the Chocolate Cherry Dr.

Witch Hat Cupcakes


I think these are probably my favorite out of the Halloween cupcake trio.  The hats are fun because the Bugles are funky shaped and give the “witchy” feel.  There was chocolate all over my fingers – perfect for licking off, can’t lose good chocolate to soap and water.  {Yes, I washed my hands afterwards.}   But the really fun part, I think, are the contrasting colors.  The green cupcake really

Spider Cupcakes


    Oh what a tangled web we weave!   Happy Halloween week! I’m so excited to be posting this treat for you especially if you are looking for a last minute dessert.  I do have to confess though that I hate spiders!  Just thinking about the real ones freak me out but these are too cute not to love, right?  Or do you suffer from arachnophobia?  Maybe these will
