Friday Favorites (on Sunday) – Episode 8

I must apologize for the tardiness of my Friday Favorites post this week.  I was extremely busy with the Share Our Strength bake sale on Friday and Saturday and didn’t have much time to read or write any blog posts.

I am happy to say that the bake sale was a success – I am still accepting donations (until 6pm tonight to be eligible for the giveaway!) and getting the pictures and info together to share…  I will be posting all of the details and pictures in a blog post tomorrow.

In the meantime, I thought it would be fitting to post my favorite baking posts this week:

  • This Tiramisushi from Spork or Foon looks both delicious and adorable.  I love tiramisu, and I think the little bite sized tiramisushi look fantastic!  I want to give this recipe a try – perhaps as mini-desserts for a party!
  • Other than pizza dough, I have stayed away from making yeast breads until very recently.  In the last few weeks I have made dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls, so my confidence with yeast is growing. Next, I think I will try the Pains au chocolat from Joanna’s Food!
  • I love discovering new food blogs… usually by making new friends on Foodbuzz.  This week I became friends with Nutmeg Nanny and discovered this Banana Layer Cake with Caramel Cream and Pecans.  The name alone sounds delicious – but be sure to take a look at the photos of the cake, too – irresistible!
  • This week on La Fuji Mama’s blog was Cupcake Week.  I think I starred every single recipe in my RSS reader, and I had a difficult time picking just one. However, in light of the bake sale, I decided to pick the Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes because they are a wonderful item if you plan on having a bake sale (especially in the morning).  Be sure to check out the rest of the week’s posts, too – they were all great.
  • My last pick of the week is this beautiful Vanilla Birthday Cake from Mindy’s Mouthful.  For her first cake from scratch, I think it turned out beautifully.  She colored the icing a beautiful pink color for her daughter’s birthday.  Be sure to check out pictures!

Don’t forget to check out the bake sale details tomorrow!

  1. I was not familiar with Share Our Strength before reading your post. This is a great charity. Thank you for spreading the word. I will add Share Our Strength to the group of charities that my business supports.

  2. I’m just now getting around to catching up on my RSS feed, so I’m a little behind! Thanks for the shoutout! And I’m so glad the bakesale went well!
