Chocolate Cake and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Sour Cream Apple Pie I
About this Cook
I'm just starting my own dessert catering company
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to do is frost and decorate wedding cakes. By far, the best job in the world, would be to work at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, MD and make the cakes that they do!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family isn't really known for it's cooking greatness. One of my Grandmothers can't cook at all. The other Grandmother is a good cook, but she's admitted that all of her recipes come from the Betty Crocker Cookbook!
My cooking triumphs
It took me years, but I've finally perfected my chocolate chip cookies recipe. I add a secret ingredient that makes the cookies AMAZING! My whole life, I wanted to be the person that everyone wanted cookies from. Finally, I've found a recipe that people think is amazing.
My cooking tragedies
I've made carrot cake each year for my best friend's birthday. Last year, I made her one from a new recipe. That should never happen; if you're happy with a recipe, then stick to it! This cake was absolutely awful.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these today without any dairy. They needed to be Parve (dairy free), and so I used crisco shortening instead of the butter, and I used Parve chocolate chips from Trader Joes. I baked them on parchment paper, making sure to take them out of the oven after 10 minutes. I allowed them to set up on the pan, and then I moved them to a cooling rack. Delicious! I know they'd taste so much better with butter, but these are great for a Parve cookie.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
I used this on almond cupcakes that I filled with strawberry jam. Wow! Amazing. The taste EXACTLY like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Lemon Cupcakes
Fantastic! I added a tbsp of poppyseeds, and topped them with lavender buttercream. Amazing!
