This is my 200th Bakerita post!!!!

I literally didn’t realize it until just now when I noticed “199” under published. It’s so crazy to think that I’ve been doing this so long, and that I’ve baked, written, photographed, and posted 200 different things on here! It sort of seems like a ton and not even that many all at the same time, but I know I’m going to keep on posting for a while :)

So to celebrate 200, I just so happen to be sharing a cake! My uncle’s birthday cake, actually, which is a delicious, chocolatey, amazing banana cake. I know…I sort of just shared a healthy banana cake that’s gluten free and Paleo, but this one is full of gluten (though you could totally use an AP GF flour) and I wouldn’t exactly call it healthy. But I would call it delicious. This flavor combination was requested by the birthday boy, and it was a darn delicious one! [Read more…]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sweet Rolls with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting from Bakerita.com…with peanut butter cream cheese frosting. Because seriously, can you make a cinnamon roll-eque recipe without some sort of cream cheese frosting? I think not.

This recipe is actually part of a contest. A peanut butter contest! If you follow my blog, you know I absolutely love peanut butter, and I’ve even guest posted for the National Peanut Board. When they asked me to participate in a peanut butter recipe contest for National Peanut Month, answering no didn’t even cross my mind. [Read more…]

Whew, this post has been a long time coming. I posted a picture of these cupcakes on my Instagram what feels like forever ago, and I’ve had people asking me to post the recipe since!

However, I am a college student, and around here, it’s finals season. Unfortunately for both me and all of you, that means baking has been pushed to the back burner to make room for business law, international management, spanish, and economics.

Yeah, I prefer baking too.

Sometimes I have epiphanies. Often, these epiphanies involve food.

A lot of the time actually. Like, 99.998% of the time. The .002% percent that aren’t about food are typically about how I could shave my dog to get around the “no pets with fur” rule at my school, or some clever excuse as to why I don’t need to go to math. Quality thoughts running through my head. Betcha wish you had mind-reading skills now, dontcha?

Back to epiphanies about food though. This weekend I was feelin’ pumpkin. I bought a can at Whole Foods. For no good reason. Naturally, this sparked my creative juices and VOILA:

PUMPKIN CINNAMON ROLLS.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting // Bakerita.com

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake w/ Cream Cheese Frosting

1 more night. In less than 24 hours, I’ll be living in a new city. I’m officially going to college. I can’t actually say that this reality has hit me yet. All my friends and family have been crying at the changes in all of our lives, but I think I’ve yet to realize the extent to which my life will be different. I’m excited, of course, but I think I’m not going to be fully aware until I’m actually there, in my new room, with new friends, in a new city, new state, and new school. Then, maybe I’ll realize it.

These "Black Velvet" Halloween Cupcakes are a spooky black version of the perfect red velvet cupcake, made especially for Halloween!I. Am. So. Tired.

It’s really ridiculous. I’ve had so much on my plate lately! But so have all the other high school seniors…but they haven’t been catering the desserts for parties, running a website, doing college applications, and been baking for way too many family occasions to count. So maybe I have been doing more than them. But whatever, I like it. Baking makes me happy.
