Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes (for Movember) | sugar & snapshots

A former co-worker’s desire to enlighten and educate others brought what is known as Movember to my attention a few years ago. November is the month to bring not only education but awareness to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges for men. November or “Movember” has become a very special month to […]

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

I want to start out by saying that for me, Valentine’s Day is an overrated holiday in which men and women – mostly men – spend too much money on disposable items.

In the last few weeks I had a few cake orders which are keeping me busy. The raspberry ombre cake was more for me than for anyone else. I wanted to try an ombre cake so badly. The opportunity presented itself and I took it! The cake was my basic white cake with a vanilla […]

This summer has been beyond hot. I moved to Minnesota because of the famously cold winters (no lie!). I love the cold, the snow and cuddling up with a warm cup of tea or coffee. This summer though is getting to be way too much for me and my desire to have the oven on […]

Simple White Cake Cupcakes

This white cake cupcakes recipe is a white birthday cake recipe that I found and wrote down from an old cookbook at my mother-in-laws. It required a lemon but I did not have any on hand, so I replaced with some vanilla paste and it tinged the cake slightly so I didn’t get that white […]

Chocolate ginger cake with bourbon caramel butter sauce

Back in October we went to my favorite restaurant for dinner and the dessert of the week was a chocolate ginger cake. After the first bite of this cake I was convinced that I had to try to replicate it. It tasted like Christmas. Yes, I realize this is late for a Christmas cake, but […]

Apple almond coffee cake

Usually there is something that inspires me to cook, a memory, an event coming up. This time it was just to get rid of ingredients in my pantry. The bonus is it’s something that my husband can take to work for breakfast with a yogurt. Also, it turned out a lot better than I thought, […]
