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!

Summer may be almost over, but the weather's still warm enough here to have me steering clear of the oven as often as possible! These individual cheesecakes are quite easy to prepare and the best part? No baking required! You can make them in advance, saving you the stress of last-minute dessert preparation for an event or even just keep them in the freezer for those spontaneous drop-ins from friends and family. Or just make them for yourself, because it's the weekend - no judgement here! These little cheesecakes...

Marshmallow, Other Sweets, Recipes & Tutorials / 17.06.2017

I can't tell you the last time that I sat around a campfire as an adult - it's been way too long!! As a child, I used to love going camping and my favourite part of each trip was sitting by the fire in the evening (after a day of swimming in the lake), making and eating s'mores. We did it the only way we knew how - toasting marshmallows on sticks until golden brown, then sandwiching them between two graham crackers, with a piece of milk chocolate stuffed...

Holidays, Recipes & Tutorials / 13.02.2017

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...

Cookies, Recipes & Tutorials, Royal Icing / 09.02.2017

Hello, hello! I'm back with another recipe! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought that these cute (and relatively easy to decorate) cookies were the perfect thing to share so that you can bake them at home! I originally created these for the first time when my bakery was open, back in 2015, as a way to use up spare edible gold paint. They were a quick way to decorate cookies to keep up with the demand and also, they're simply pretty. In my opinion, a pretty...

Cupcakes, Holidays, Recipes & Tutorials / 22.10.2016

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, Ice Cream, Other Sweets, Recipes & Tutorials, Videos / 07.07.2016

Hello from under a pile of scrawled recipe notes! I've been trying to keep up with regular blogging, but have been having such a tough time balancing, well, everything as of late. Between recipe writing and testing for my upcoming baking book, a whole lot of wedding clients and my less-than-smooth-sailing personal life (I'm recently single), things have been a little bit hectic....

Marshmallow, Other Sweets, Recipes & Tutorials / 11.12.2015

As a baker and lover of all things dessert, it's not often that I find something sweet that I don't really enjoy. So I have a confession to make: up until recently, I wasn't really a fan of marshmallows. I know. There is a story here and I'll spare you all of the gritty details, but the short of it is that when I was a kid, I loved them and ate way too many on a camping trip and got really sick. For the last two decades,...
