Baking with Puff Chrissy…

Because some of you have asked on Twitter, here are some pictures of things I’ve baked in the last month or so. First up, the Beet Cake…

This might be my new favorite cake (sorry, Coca-Cola Cake!). It’s earthy and delicious, and the redness of the batter before you bake it is a thing of beauty. I used a basic butter-cream cheese frosting for this one and added a little red dye for good measure. The recipe I used for this one is here. I recommend watching the video there too.

Next up, some good old fashion cupcakes with a little Marvel super-hero goodness thrown in…

I used a simple butter recipe for the cupcakes with four different kinds of frosting and toppings to accentuate each Marvel hero. Fun stuff. These cupcakes were a hit at our Halloween party last weekend. Now that I’m more comfortable making cupcakes, I suspect I’ll be experimenting in the future.
