Baked Sunday Mornings: Going Rogue

IMG_5424.JPG

I wanted so badly to make this week’s recipe: Wintermint Cake. I bought all of the ingredients, but life got in the way. Friday was my birthday and I really should have known that if I didn’t make it before Thursday it wasn’t going to happen. I’m still bummed and so are my kids, who LOVE chocolate and mint together.

I have to admit: I don’t usually like mint and chocolate together. But guess what I LOVE together? Chocolate and peanut butter. When I was invited to my first cookie swap of the season that one was a no-brainer. They turned out perfectly, even though I was worried they were going to spread out they baked up beautifully.

My mom baked these a lot when I was a kid so I loved the nostalgia factor as well.

My friend has a cool embroidery machine so I asked her to make myself and my mother in law a couple of presents:

Of course I got mine dirty already 😉 Even my cute aprons are put to work in my kitchen!

Go see how everyone else’s cakes turned out!

  1. Happy New Year, Jen! Yes, life does sometimes get in the way of baking, doesn’t it. I had to make my cake two weeks in advance because I knew there was no way I could bake it right before Christmas. Anyway, I hope you get a chance to make the cake at some point– it’s fantastic. But the PB Blossoms look great!! I’m excited to make those. Love the embroidered aprons too! 🙂
