Fudgy chocolate goat cheese cookies

0 comments

Ok, ok. I know what you’re thinking. Goat cheese?! In a cookie?! Stick with me for a minute though. You can’t taste the goat cheese and it adds the BEST, fudgiest texture. I promise. My dad hates goat cheese, and I was mean and had him try these without telling […]

Eclairs to celebrate being fully vaccinated

Ever since I heard a covid vaccine was on the way, this idea popped into my head to make eclairs to celebrate. Why eclairs? Because they are injected (like the vaccine) with a filling and I find this similarity funny. Eclairs also kind of resemble the shape of a syringe. […]

Everything bagel hamantaschen

The cakie: a cake / cookie hybrid

0 comments

Awhile back, I decided to combine my interest in machine learning and baking to see if I could build something that would take the ingredient amounts from a recipe and predict what type of baked good it was. I won’t get into the technical details here (click the link above […]

How to make tiny cakes

0 comments

If you’ve seem my Instagram, you’ll know I love making tiny cakes. What do I mean by tiny cakes? When I talk about tiny cakes I’m referring to small cakes (usually layer cakes) that are less than 3 inches wide. Don’t take those guidelines too seriously, this is just how […]
