Long time, no update, eh? The photo with this post is of the cupcakes made for me for my birthday by my awesome roommate at work. We’re both obsessed with Toddlers & Tiaras, and you can see the molding chocolate decorations include sashes and tiaras and, yes, that’s right, flippers. Squee! Teeth on my cupcakes. […]



Have I mentioned recently how much I love you guys? So Carrie (and Derek) and Andrea and John at work filled the kitchen with red velvet cupcakes for my birthday, and Jen decorated them with my favorite things (including polyhedral dice, the Best Friends logo, and pancakes with syrup).

By the time we served this, unfortunately, the top bun had decided to move south and it looked like gravity had taken a […]

Cthocolate Cake


I was originally thinking octopus, but I ended up making a little Cthulhu cake for Chris’s birthday. This specific Old One is vaguely based on Toy Vault’s plushie (which is one of his products) and wielding a spork (also one of Chris’s products). Chris only specified that he wanted “something chocolate” as his cake, and […]
