Wintermint Cake: Baked Sunday Mornings

I have been looking forward to making this cake.  It is a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and peppermint buttercream.   I made a full recipe, but I made a small cake.  I baked a sheet cake and cut out circles then the left over cake and frosting and ganache will be used for cake balls!  Yummy!  I will post those when I get them done.

I really did think about doing the ombre petal frosting technique but I just didn't want to deal with all that mess...feeling a bit lazy.  I am pretty happy with the results.  I sampled the cake and it is moist and delicious.  I always have the best luck with Baked chocolate cakes...they are amazing!

Please take a look at what the other bakers did here.  To get the recipe go here.  It is really long, but don't let that shy you away from trying this beautiful and delicious cake!  It really was simple to make.  And might I say, I am getting pretty dang good at making the Baked buttercream!  :) 

Next up is Hair of the Dog Cake.  Now that sounds interesting!
Until then
Enjoy and have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Date Squares: Baked Sunday Mornings

These were certainly an easy bake!  They smell so delicious but crazy me...I was in such a hurry to get these done, I forgot the oatmeal!   I was wondering why I didn't have much of the crumb mixture...I really had to stretch! Oh well, they still look pretty good even without the oats.

I sure do love dates!  I will make these again, only next time I won't forget the oats!

Please go and see how these bars are actually suppose to look.  My fellow bakers did a wonderful job! Take a peek here.

Recipe is here.

Next is Wintermint Cake!  Yummm!
