Tres Leches Mini Bundt Cake

This Tres Leches Bundt Cake is on the menu for our Cinco De Mayo party! The day is quickly approaching, and I am busy getting all the preliminary work done for the party. I hope you will be celebrating with us! I love tres leches cake, but this year I thought I might take some liberties with the traditional recipe, and make mine into personal bundt cakes. The recipe has not changed much, just the delivery vessel. This is one of my favorite cakes, and I hope you enjoy it!

Chocolate Boston Cream Pie Trifle

Today I made a Chocolate Boston Cream Pie Trifle! One of my favorite desserts from when I was growing up was a Boston Cream Pie. I was always fascinated with the fact that it was really a cake, but called a pie. Why? No one could tell me. I have since learned that the Boston Cream Pie was originally made in colonial times and the colonists used to bake cakes in pie tins because most people didn't have cake pans, only pie pans. Makes sense! So, fast forward to 2014. I decided to put a slight twist on the traditional and make my Boston Cream Pie with chocolate cake. Actually, I used a Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake. I transformed the pie into a trifle, making it something a little special, and I think it works. Let me know what you think!

Mr. McGregor's Marshmallow Carrots

These Marshmallow Carrots are not the ones that Peter Rabbit was munching on in Mr. McGregor's garden, but I think you will like them. You start with homemade marshmallow, cut out some carrots with a cookie cutter, add some orange sanding sugar, add some licorice greens, and you have a marshmallow carrot similar to a peep! Things would have been fun if these had been growing in Mr. McGregor's garden!
