Thankful I get to be this kid’s mom (and the rest of them, too). Last week my commercial oven broke and it won’t be fixed until this weekend at the earliest; amidst the stress that’s caused and the customers I’ve had to disappoint, moments like this bring me light and happiness. Nothing like getting knocked on your ass to remind you how hard all this shit really is. Nonetheless, this is my favorite season and I’m planning a big, hearty meal for tomorrow’s festivities. Happy holidays!! 🦃🥧🎄🎅🏽☃️

“Never say 'no' to pie. No matter what, wherever you are, diet-wise or whatever, you know what? You can always have a small piece of pie, and I like pie. I don't know anybody who doesn't like pie. If somebody doesn't like pie, I don't trust them. I'll bet you Vladimir Putin doesn't like pie.” —Al Roker

Introducing... Coquitocakes! These are vanilla coconut cupcakes with cinnamon and nutmeg, topped with Coquito Swiss meringue buttercream (and an extra shot of the good stuff to keep you extra happy). They will make their debut on 11/25/17 when @whitestarcoquito will be selling them and her delicious Coquito at the @qedastoria Holiday Bazaar! The best part? 20% of the proceeds will go to @unidosxpr for #puertoricohurricanerelief efforts.

You only have your first birthday once, so the cake has to be extra special. Daylen loves Tec the Tractor and he’s perched atop this farm themed cake, complete with pumpkins and baby animals. Swipe to see the details. Happy FIRST birthday, Daylen!

There is no sincerer love than the love of food. —George Bernard Shaw

These are frozen raspberries pre-compote state, and the sugar looks like snow, don’t you think?

Happy bridal shower to Kaitlin, who is celebrating on Long Island today with this pumpkin buttercream cake adorned with fresh sunflowers (and cupcakes, not pictured). Kaitlin’s wedding is in February, and guess who’s making the cake?

Monday motivation.
It’s hard to ignore the bad news in the world, and even harder to send my children out into it with confidence that they’ll be ok. Their questions about what’s happening and why become harder to answer, as I can’t make sense of any of it myself.
Small things like their behaviors, grades, and social relationships turn into huge worries like whether they’ll be bullied, whether they’ll be safe, and how on earth I can keep positive in the face of everything that’s happening that doesn’t directly affect them today, but will undoubtedly affect them as they get older.
These kids give me hope. I hold steadfast to it.

PS. My girl picked this sweatshirt because of what it says on it.

Dreary day got you down? Imagine being a guest at Shelby’s bridal shower, where you’d get to eat this cake. I can’t think of a cozier spot than @mosaicastoria on this chilly, wet day.

Quality freaking control! Ok, no more pie posts (today). But seriously, I did make an extra pie for my family to take home. It was still a little warm when I ate it, and OHSOGOOD.

Is it too late for Monday motivation? I don’t know about y’all, but my day didn’t really start until that nasty rain stopped. I made this tiramisu last night and I’ve already eaten some twice today. I even made my own mascarpone substitute and it’s friggin amazing. Happy Monday cake lovers!

“My colors are blush and bashful!” 💗I got to make a groom’s cake out of red velvet, just like in Steel Magnolias—though this one is not an armadillo. Instead, the fondant/gum paste toppers are a little bear and fox, enjoying the fruits of my labor.

About last night. Pumpkin pie. Cake.
I feel like, when @astoriabout takes amazing photos of stuff, especially your work, you don’t say anything other than to ask for the originals. Dammit, woman, do your talents know no end?! 🎂

And another full circle complete. Brian and Ashley (@queenseats) and I started following each other 2.5 years ago, before I had even officially opened my bakery, and they had about 2K followers and I had less than 200. I made Ashley’s birthday cake that year, and well, the rest is history. Today I had the honor of not only providing their dessert offerings but also attending their absolutely beautiful wedding. Congratulations Ashley and Brian, I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

The hot button debate with brownies always is: corner or middle? I’m indecisive and wildly unpredictable so I go back and forth. Scandalous, I know. Which one are you?
