And just like that, it’s Mother’s Day weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there, I made you a cake. This White Chocolate Limoncello Cake was inspired by my own mother’s love of lemon desserts. Her favorite is actually Lemon Meringue Pie but I figured you probably didn’t need yet another Lemon Meringue Pie recipe. So I changed things up a bit with this golden beauty. This cake is rich, velvety, and capital-M Moist. I know most people hate that word, but there really is no other word for it. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.

I have a soft spot for pink desserts. I just can’t say no to them. And it’s kind of strange because I wouldn’t say I’m an overly pink-loving person. I don’t own much pink. But if you give me a sleeve of pink macarons, I will squeal with joy like a preteen at a K-pop concert. I’m not proud of this reaction, it’s just a fact. So when I put the finishing touches on these very pretty in pink Strawberry Marshmallow Cookies, I was pretty much beside myself. And when I tasted them, well, proud doesn’t even begin to cover it. They are so good and I just can’t wait to tell you all about them. So let’s get into it!

Every year, I pick a recipe that pushes me to my limits. Last year it was this Gingerbread Cake and this year it’s this Sufganiyot Croquembouche. I won’t sugar coat it (pun intended) this recipe isn’t a walk in the park. But I have to say if you’re looking for a confidence boost, dusting this beast with its final sprinkling of sugar does indeed make you feel like a boss. Make sure you clear your schedule if you decide to take this dessert on. Rushing through any step will likely end in disaster or result in caramel-related burns – speaking from experience. So now that I have intimidated you completely, let’s dig into this Sufganiyot Croquembouche.

This is cake without an occasion. I made it for no reason whatsoever. This isn’t like me. I like to bake but I rarely bake without a purpose. I’m not really a dessert person, I’m far more of a salty snack person. So when I whip up a dessert, I better have mouths at the ready to help me eat it. But this Chocolate Plum Cake with Mulled Wine Caramel is a rare exception. I dreamed it, I wanted it, and I made it. There are so few things in my life that I have actual control over, so it’s nice to be able to conceive of something and bring it to fruition in a more or less fuss-free fashion. And it’s a chocolate cake. Dessert lover or not, I think we can all agree a chocolate cake is worthy of a celebration.
