Grenadian Spice Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Amazing cake, perfect for autumn and along side mulled apple cider! I added swirled chocolate ganache to the top of mine for a pretty pattern and a bit more sweetness , though this cake is great without any powdered sugar and extremely moist! Good base for an apple upside cake, or a coffee crumb topping would be nice, could do allot with this recipe!

Cream Cheese Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Loved this recipe as it goes great with warm drinks, and I love a good warm drink and cookie! though these are fantastic by themselves. Reminds me of a sugar cookie or short bread cookie. The cream cheese gives them something just a slight bit richer, as do the nuts. I love the colorful sprinkles. My family thought the green ones looked like zucchini slices hehe. so they are now called zucchini cookies.

Christmas Pinwheel Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Wonderful Christmas cookies. They basically tasted like a sort of sugar/shortbread cookie, they go great whit a nice warm drink, or just on their own. I like you can go crazy with different colors. I will say, that the recipe doesn't really specify on rolling the dough with use of any tools. I should have gone with my instinct and put a floured towel or wax paper under the dough for rolling to help me roll it up, because I didn't and had some issues with it falling and breaking, thus my "spirals" were a bit abstract looking but still pretty.

Rum or Bourbon Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Great recipe, I was hoping they would be a hit, as my husbands family had never tried a rum ball and they have a more "adult" taste. I saw people recommend less rum, but I went with the full 1/2 cup. For me personally I would have gone with a bit less rum, but people still loved them with the original recipe. They were eaten up quickly and my husband loved them! Next time I think id add nuts, which I left out for allergies purposes. And roll them in sprinkles instead of powdered sugar, they were very rich, could have used a bit more sweet to balance it all better. Great recipe to mod though, thus gave five stars ;)

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
This was an amazing carrot cake! I have never heard of adding pineapple or coconut, but it came out deliciously. I made it for Christmas, as thought carrot cake seemed a good Christmas type of cake, sweet flavors but not to heavy. I poured my batter into two 9 inch cake pans and they baked up perfectly! the cake was heavy and moist. But the fact it was a dense/heavy cake made it easy to feed many people, as you don't need a big slice. The cream cheese frosting with this recipe went perfectly. I did piping on the edges and a nice spiral pattern, got rave reviews for looks and taste! My family and friends loved it!
