8 Flavor-Filled Bake Sale Recipes to Bake for a Cause

October 23rd, 2017 by Lee Mooney Egan

8-Flavor Filled Bake Sale Recipes

Earlier this fall, I was walking out of our church and happened upon several friends gathered around a table of sweets overflowing with little bags and bundles of various treats from oatmeal cookies and chocolate brownies to rice cereal squares and another cereal sweet snack fondly known as “puppy chow” (my daughter’s favorite).  I learned that the bake sale was inspired by a few teens who wanted to send relief to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The word spread quickly, resulting in an abundant selection of family favorites begging for a buyer to support the teens’ mission.  A familiar scene no doubt was happening outside churches, schools, fields and store fronts in many towns across the nation, raising money not only for hurricane victims, but soccer teams, marching bands, class trips, dance troops, football teams and a myriad of other causes, banking on the draw of yummy, home-baked sweets and the big hearts of friends and neighbors.

Candy Melts Pom-Poms & Pennants Cake

September 18th, 2017 by Erin Gardner

Pom-Poms and Pennants Cake | Erin Gardner
Show support for your favorite team with this fun and easy Pom-Poms & Pennants Cake! I couldn’t help myself from making my cake in my fav pink and yellow color combo, but you can switch up the colors to match your team’s. Make the pennants on treat sticks to use them as cake toppers, or skip that step and place the pennants directly onto your cake or cupcakes.

Using a cutter is a quick way to easily transform Candy Melts into any shape! In my new book, Erin Bakes Cake, I use this same trick, and many more, to create gorgeous cakes using simple tools. I share the most versatile cake recipes along with filling, frosting, cookie, and candy recipes that can be combined in endless ways. The tips, tricks, and decorating techniques found in the book will help you create your own cake adventure!

6 Flavored Buttercream Frosting Recipes

August 7th, 2017 by Desiree Smith

6 Flavored Buttercream Recipes | Wilton Cake DecoratingThe perfect compliment to a delicious cake is luscious buttercream made from scratch. Even if you’ve never made buttercream frosting before, you’ll find it’s quite simple to make. All of the recipes below, except for the key lime buttercream recipe, are made with half butter and half shortening. If you prefer your frosting to be all butter or all shortening, you can easily substitute the amount called for in the recipe.

For the smoothest buttercream, I highly recommend sifting your confectioners’ sugar before starting. I find this makes it the best consistency! Always beat your butter and shortening together first until the mixture is light and fluffy. Follow the instructions for each recipe regarding any liquids (such as vanilla) or other flavorings that need to be added. Add confectioners’ sugar one cup at a time, beating after each addition.

Tired of plain old buttercream? Try out one of these delicious flavored buttercream recipes below!
