Hay now, we are going on vacation!

A farm vacation that is. It is going to be so sweet... sugar horses, pigs basking in chocolate... Oh! I can't wait! I hope you are enjoying your summer, too!

Cream Cheese Icing...

This cake was created for a baby shower. The cake is a carrot cake covered with a cream cheese icing which is actually quite good for piping, too. You will need a cup of butter, 2 packages of cream cheese (do not use "light" cream cheese), 8 cups of icing sugar, 3 tablespoons of milk, and 1 teaspoon of orange or lemon zest (optional) (in fact, if you are going to use it for piping, omit the zest because it will clog the decorating tips).
You should cream the butter and cream cheese first, and then add the milk and icing sugar, one cup at a time. This icing goes really well with either carrot or banana cake. Have fun with it!

Ketchup Cake?

I read about this cake in the Vancouver Sun. An interesting article that states that Heinz ketchup is a Canadian invention dated back to 1909, in a Leamington , Ontario factory. Go figure!
Anyhow, if you want the recipe or the whole article, you can go to It looks delicious! Very much like a red velvet cake, but then again, the amount of red food colouring needed is quite a lot... though maybe you could hold this and it wouldn't affect the taste... Let me know if you try it!

Under the sun...

What could be better than a cake summer? A nice sandy beach where the ocean is made out of a soft buttercream and the sand is sweet Graham crumbs? That's paradise to me... Enjoy the sun!
