Have your cake and a strawberry too! These chocolate covered strawberry cupcakes are two different takes on one classic sweet treat.  Darlings, it’s time for another episode of “random Godmother food confessions”. When it comes to strawberries mixed with other flavors, I’ll take strawberries with cream any day over a chocolate covered strawberry.

What’s the point of chocolate cake if there’s not chocolate in the batter? Problem solved with these chocolaty chocolate cupcakes! This perfect chocolate cupcake recipe is the only one I need… I’m a big fan of melting chocolate right into cake batter. I like my chocolate cake to taste distinctively of chocolate.

A classic sandwich in dessert form, you won’t believe the inspiration story behind these peanut butter and jelly cupcakes.  Let’s take a step back in time, darlings, all the way back to high school (for me). High school was a fun experience. I had a wonderful group of friends, played sports, was in band, all the typical “high school” things. The only thing I didn’t do was date, which now that…

Red Velvet Cake

Perfect Red Velvet Cake Recipe FROM SCRATCH! Just the right hint of chocolate with a kick, it's everything you'd want from a classic Southern red velvet. Bakes perfectly as a layer cake or cupcakes with no modification. Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

This is my perfect red velvet cake recipe. It’s the best red velvet cake I’ve tried, and it’s most definitely *not* chocolate cake with red food coloring, because that, my darlings, is *not* red velvet cake contrary to what I have heard/seen in my life outside the South. Bless. The mark of a really good red velvet cake is a slight tang from vinegar and buttermilk, just the right hint…

Orange Cake Recipe From Scratch & Orange Frosting Recipe

Naturally flavored orange cupcakes and orange frosting from scratch! Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

I’ve been a full time blogger, as opposed to a full-time baker who happened to have a blog, for a little over a year now, and I’ve discovered a few things. One, I really love blogging. I have free reign to create in the kitchen, and short of being an executive chef, few culinary jobs allow that sort of freedom. And two, I love being able to share recipes. …

Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

The perfect buttercream for decorating, this raspberry buttercream recipe uses fresh raspberries for a not-too-sweet flavor equally pleasing to kids and adults! Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Last week I posted a recipe for almond cake from scratch, and I frosted it with a creamy, crusting raspberry buttercream made with fresh raspberries. It was such a delicious combination, and I’m glad Tara at An Aiming High Wife requested the recipe! I think the last time I had almond cake and raspberry together was when we were cake tasting for our wedding almost 10 years ago. …
