    Happy Dia De Los Muertos. Sweet Sugar Belle’s sugar skull cookies are perfect. What are some of the special foods you will celebrate the day with?




    100% chocolate cafe

    A trip to Japan is a must! 100% Chocolate Cafe in Tokyo has a different chocolate for every day of the year. Who wouldnt want 365 days of chocolate? A chocolate lovers paradise! The tab letter packages can be customized with your choice of letters and it doesn’t stop there. The new edition are mini chocolate cakes. Must go to Japan NOW!

    I’m bummed I missed Artisanal L.A this past weekend and even more bummed I did not get to try I heart pies. How cute is their logo and design!? I’m totally in awe and can’t wait to try some of their pies. It’s refreshing to see people starting sustainable businesses locally and having fun with it.


    B&W, Orange&Black, Red Velvet

    Benjie just returned from New York and my one request was to bring me back some black&white cookies, a New York staple. He brought me back 4 cookies, two traditional black and whites, an orange and black (Halloween themed?) and a red velvet from William Greenberg Jr. So what ‘s the difference between a regular cookie and a B&W one? Basically it’s like a cake in cookie form. The inside is cakey and the top is covered 50/50 in vanilla and chocolate frosting. See why I am a fan?

    I have to admit I had my first black&white cookie in Chicago at Bennison’s Bakery and I loved it! So I was excited to get the real deal from NY. Unlike the first one I tried, these ones were extremely cake like, no cookie crunch outside. Either way I’m still a fan of the cake cookies and it’s true the best bite is in the middle.

    Update: The Red Velvet b&w cookie is ridiculous good- half cream cheese frosting & half milk chocolate frosting on red velvet cake.

    There is a good and simple recipe for the cookies at  Salad in a Jar and I will attempt to make them soon.  To be continued.

    The cookie boy from Japan makes and sells customized sugar cookies. The site is all in Japanese but the layout and photos are awesome.

    As you can see I am on a ice cream kick. Check out Bake Greek’s beautiful ice cream cone sugar cookies. I always appreciate a nicely decorated sugar cookie. Now go practice your pipping skills or you can always watch some of Bake Greek’s tutorials.



    Robot cupcake molds! Fred always comes out with creative kitchen and house wear items. These silicone molds for cake batter will be a great addition to the collection.
