Fun Halloween desserts

Trick or treat!
Halloween is an ancient harvest celebration that is basically all about candy and desserts. That's why we love it!
You won't want to hand out slices of cake for the trick-or-treaters, and you wouldn't want to bake enough cake pops to feed your entire office. So it's important to think about the venue before you choose a dessert. (And don't ever pick cake pops, anyway. Way too much work for the minimal payoff.)

Baking without eggs

Healthy egg substitutes for your favorite recipes.

If you're like me, then you are always looking for ways to eat healthy, without giving up taste. As a baker, it is especially important that I'm still able to indulge in my favorite treats while I'm watching my figure.

Most recipes call for the use of eggs. They are needed as a binding and leavening agent in baked goods. Unfortunately, eggs are also full of saturated fat and cholesterol. Thankfully, there are many substitutes you can use if you want to make a healthier dessert that is still delicious.

Never buy canned frosting again

Simple frosting recipes for your desserts

You finally decide to bake a cake, and you want it to taste delicious. As you look for something to frost your cake, you notice a huge display of canned icing at the grocery store. You are tempted to pick up a package, but before you do, know what's inside of that can...trans-fat! Yep, most canned frostings are packed full of deadly trans-fat and offer very little taste.

Is a little convenience worth jeopardizing your health? Before you frost your cake with that unhealthy, strangely shelf-stable mixture, consider whipping up a more natural option at home.
