I’ve always had an Achilles’ heel for sweets — Birthday Cake Oreos, Sour Punch Straws —  you name it, I’ve loved it. I was never really into baking until I had Zelda. I quickly figured out that we could really connect in the kitchen and do our mother daughter thing. Baking is easiest because she can do all the pouring and no sharp objects are involved.
Although, we are still in the stage where she covers her ears when I turn on the electric mixer. To her, “it’s scary”. However, she has no problem sliding her tiny finger along the whisk to insert whatever we are making into her mouth once I’ve turned it off. We’ve had so much fun baking cinnamon rolls, cakes and cookies (especially when they are cat shaped). What memories will you make with your little one on World Baking Day?

We keep this Pink Cinnamon Rolls recipe on tap for special occasions, as it quickly became a favorite among everyone in my household.

It’s almost time to celebrate dads everywhere! Why not do it with Dad Lemon Sugar Cookies?

This Cranberry Cheesecake is much easier to make than it sounds, and you won’t even break a sweat!

Rainbow Meringues are one of my all-time favorite things to make – I find the entire process so relaxing.

With only three ingredients, you may already have the ingredients for Pop Hearts in your fridge.

Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest and that certainly holds true for Kitty Cat Cookie Butter Cookies (these are a Zelda favorite).

This yummy French Yogurt Cake from Bringing Up Bebe is so easy your little could whip it up themselves!

Who will you make a Cupcake Floral Bouquet for?

Sometimes it’s all about life’s little indulgences aka Snickers Cookies.

The first time I ever made Texas Sheet Cake, I had a major baking fail.

We snagged this Rainbow Sprinkle Swiss Roll Cake recipe from Betty Crocker (and made a few of our own modifications).

There’s nothing better than seeing the look on someone’s face when they bite into these “surprise” Piñata Cupcakes.

We recommend relaxing, reserving an afternoon and making French Macarons with the whole family!
