Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake

Whoopie Pie cake



Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake 

(This is a recipe my mother found in an old church cookbook when I was a child and she has been using it ever since)

If you are a fan of whoopie pies, like me, but not a fan of making them, then you are going to love this recipe. This Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake is so easy to make and only bakes for about 15 minutes. The hardest part about making one of these cakes is flipping the one cake on top of the other. You have to wait until both cakes are cooled then spread the icing on one cake and flip the other cake evenly on top. It can be a little tricky! I usually say a prayer before doing this. It’s my whoopie pie cake prayer ūüėČ

As a child, I remember my mom making this Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cake often, it was a family favorite. She told me that she wrote the recipe down from an old church cookbook years ago, so we are uncertain who this recipe belongs to. I remember her taking this chocolate whoopie pie cake to picnics and family gatherings and she almost always came home with an empty pan.

Peppermint Iced Tea Slushies

Peppermint Iced Tea Slushies

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I am the annoying friend that is constantly making facebook posts about how many Fridays are left until Christmas day ( 24 by the way ūüėČ ) So when July came rolling in I knew I had to jump on the bandwagon with an amazing Christmas in July recipe. Recently, my family and I took a trip to Knoebels Amusement Park, and while there, I indulged in an iced tea slushie. I had them before, but for some reason, on that particular day, it tasted amazing! Maybe it was the heat or maybe it had just been freshly brewed, either way, it left my tastebuds wanting more. I knew I had to recreate this slushie using my own iced tea recipe and luckily I found an unopened box of leftover candy canes in my pantry. I served these Peppermint Iced Tea Slushies at my fourth of July gathering and they were a huge hit! Everyone loved them! This year, after Christmas, when the candy canes go on sale, I will be stocking up for next summer.

I want to make a note that you could certainly use peppermint schnapps in this recipe. Because I am not a heavy drinker I am uncertain on how much peppermint schnapps should be used per drink. However, I do not think it would be difficult to figure out. If you decide to make this an alcoholic drink I would love to hear how much schnapps you used and how it turned out.

(Cake Box Recipe) S’mores Bundt Cake




S'mores cake

(Cake Box Recipe) ¬†S’mores Bundt Cake

Cake box recipes are so fun! I love them and I make a lot of them. My (Cake Box Recipe) S’mores Bundt cake is super easy to make. It tastes just as fantastic as it looks! It is a moist and fluffy cake topped to resemble an S’more. ¬†And you will love the simplicity of this recipe. I think the hardest part was making the ganache, and if you have ever made ganache, you know that’s a cinch. Basically, it is just equal parts of cream and chocolate, easy peasy. Your guests will seriously think you spent all day in the kitchen. And I wouldn’t tell them any differently, what they don’t know won’t hurt them right? ūüėČ

My favorite part about this cake is using the kitchen torch. If you do not own one of these you need to! I bought mine at a kitchen store for about $12 and it was the best $12 I ever spent =P . There are so many cool recipes you can make when you own one of these. I have yet to make a creme brulee but it is next on the list. Not to mention I can have a toasted marshmallow anytime I want! haha

Tip – When putting on the marshmallow fluff, take spoonfuls and plop them all around the top of the cake, then use the back of the spoon to smooth¬†it together. Let the cake sit for about 10 minutes and you will see the marshmallow¬†fluff begin to run down the sides of the cake. It’s so easy to do and makes the cake look so elegant.

Mom’s Fruit Salad Recipe¬†

My Mom’s Fruit Salad Recipe is the perfect recipe for all your summer gatherings. My mom makes this a lot in the summer and I can see why! It only takes about 5 minutes to whip up and is also budget friendly. Plus the only dishes you will dirty is the bowl you use, a knife, and a spoon, so the clean up is a breeze. Who wants to be standing in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove and a sink full of dishes in the summer anyways? Not me, that’s for sure!

Ingredients:

2 Р ( 29 oz) Cans Fruit Cocktail

2 Р( 15 oz) cans mandarin oranges

1 Р jar Maraschino Cherries

1 Р ( 15.5 oz) container strawberries with syrup ( or sugar), Thawed

2 Р Ripe Bananas

Directions: 

Pour all ingredients ( entire cans, juice and all) , except bananas, in a large serving bowl and gently mix. When ready to serve, slice bananas and add them to the fruit salad. Store in the Refridgerator.

*If you can not find Strawberries with syrup or sugar – Buy a bag of frozen strawberries and sprinkle them with sugar and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. They should make their own syrup that way.
