Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all of my fellow Canadians and happy regular old Sunday to everyone else! If you're up super early like I am, you probably look forward to a cup of coffee or two (or 5?), to help make you feel like a human being. I personally am I big fan of lattes and every year, I look forward to the pumpkin spice version and while sipping on one the other day it dawned on me: I need to make this into a cake!

Hello, friends! Today I'm sharing how to make a big bunny cookie that's filled with sugary goodness! It's so big, in fact, that you'll need to recruit friends to help you eat it, or you can just keep it all to yourself! Of course, you can also make these cookies with a smaller cookie cutter - in fact, any shape you have handy will do! Years ago at my shop, we made these "Confetti Clocks" for New Years Eve celebrations, which were the same concept, just in a...

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day! It's no secret that absolutely love baking, but occasionally whipping up something that doesn't involve turning on the oven just feels right. I was browsing one of my favourite local kitchen supply shops a few weeks ago (here) when I found this heart-shaped mold (this one) and I knew it had to come home with me. Heart-shaped food makes me happy! These pancakes are easy to make and are loaded with pops of colour. I used heart-shaped confetti sprinkles in Valentine's Day colours, but honestly, almost...

Happy FALL! I don't know where summer went, but I do know that all of a sudden, I'm wearing rubber boots and dodging raindrops on my way in and out of the house. Summer for me was all about working on my upcoming baking book, while tackling wedding orders and keeping my local coffee shop in business by living on their lattes. I also moved across the city and have been in and out of meetings planning what's next for Sweet Bake Shop....

Cookies, Holidays / 20.12.2015

Hello from inside a cloud of icing sugar! It's been crazy over at my house lately and I almost always have cookie icing (or some other sugary substance) in my hair or on my clothes these days. I've been known to leave trails of flour from the kitchen to the pantry or living room and often, something even ends up on the dog if he's hovering by my feet while ingredients are flying. It happens! As stressful as the holidays can be, I always find that being in the kitchen...

Hello and happy December! I'm so excited that it's FINALLY sugar cookie season! I'm in the kitchen constantly and of course, I make sugar cookies all year round, but it's only at this time of year that I can make them in festive shapes without people looking at me like I'm living in some sort of weird Christmas bubble. So bring on the trees, reindeer, snowmen and everything in between...

Holidays / 21.11.2015

Gift-giving season is just around the corner and every holiday season, I get asked the question "What should I get my girlfriend/wife/mom/friend who loves to bake?". The short answer is that it really depends. How much do you want to spend? What do they already own? Where should you shop? So many questions! This year, I've decided to put together a list of things that I personally would love to receive as gifts or in my stocking. Some are items that I'll have available in my online shop (coming...

Hello! Happy November! This is my absolute favourite time of year, because now that Halloween is over, the Christmas things are allowed to slowly begin making an appearance. And by slowly, I mean I've already started decorating - haha! In case you didn't know, I love Christmas and I am crazy about it. For example, last night I roped my boyfriend into dragging out and beginning to set up our Christmas tree...

This is the recipe for my red velvet cupcakes. They were a best-seller in my shop, and the wonderful thing about them is that they're pretty simple to make! After filming the video below, I discovered that baking the cupcakes at 325°F instead of 350°F made for a better cupcake, so be sure to set your oven at the lower temperature....
