I can’t believe Fall is just about upon us. As always this Summer absolutely flew by, but I have to admit after the dry, scorching weather we had I am more than ready to welcome in the new season. I know a lot of Vancouverites wish the summer would never end, but admittedly once September rolls around I am usually pining for the beauty of Fall.
My Dad doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth. I got my obsession for baked goodies from my mum and my mum only.
As such he rarely requests baking – in fact he rarely even eats dessert at all. So when he does I get a little giddy and waste no time jumping at the opportunity to bake him a little something delicious.
Such was the case the other day when I got a text from him saying, and I quote… “I think I could go for a slice of Carrot Cake topped with an inch thick of Cream Cheese Frosting right about now…” My Dad may not share my love for baked goodies, but if there is one thing we can agree on, it’s that cream cheese frosting is pretty much the best thing in the whole entire world.

So if you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I fully ate three quarters of this cake all to myself. I went back for “just one more bite” about thirty times until the cake was just about gone, because I simply couldn’t help myself…
Do I have regrets about demolishing a cake in the span of a half hour that could easily have feed ten people? No, because that’s how good this cake is. It was absolutely worth every bite, and the subsequent trip to the gym the next morning for a gnarly work out sesh.

Who else here could find themselves completely content to stare at a pretty layer cake all day long?
When I got together with my lovely friend Rosemary from Local Studio Co a few weeks ago to shoot this pretty white layer cake, I swear I wanted to do just that. Stare at it all day long that is…
Seriously though. I swear once we were done shooting it, I sat and admired it for a solid thirty minutes. I was so obsessed with it that when my fiance asked me when he could have a slice, I almost uttered the words “Pardon me? this cake is of course too pretty to eat!” … But then I remembered that the cake was also delicious, and let’s be real, there is nothing that will ever stop me from eating a piece of homemade cake. Nothing. Not even if it is pretty. Read More
Have you ever made homemade dulce de leche? It’s a game changer – and actually quite an easy game changer when you make it with a can of sweetened condensed milk.
To be perfectly honest, I can eat dulce de leche just straight from the jar. It’s that good. But pair it with a chewy chocolate chip cookie & you will be forever changed.
Is this chocolate chip cookie cake a little over the top? Perhaps. But if there is one thing I know for sure; it’s that if this cookie cake is considered wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
You can find the recipe for this Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake can be found on the Tastes of Lizzy T website
Is it just me or is there just something so hypnotizing about roll cakes? Whenever I make one, I find myself leering at it like a total weirdo… does anybody else have this problem? There is really something about these cakes that just makes you want a slice – no matter what time of day. Roll cake for breakfast? Heck yes!
You guys… I have just four words for you. Chocolate. Chip. Snack. Cake. I honestly don’t know what else to say – other than you need this cake in your life. The flavours are so simple & it’s so easy to make, but it’s probably one of my all-time favourite cakes. Honestly, to say that I love this cake with all my heart, would be an understatement.
Happy 2017 friends! How is everybody doing? I feel like I have been completely MIA lately. You guys keep asking so nicely for recipes and I keep failing to post them. I’m sorry!
I know I’m the worst, but I’m trying to redeem myself here with this one because you guys …this cake. I am at a loss for words because seriously… This. Cake. I’m in love with it.
Ever since blood oranges started showing up in my market I have been telling myself I need to baking something with these colourful beauties & I finally got around to it this past weekend.
It’s Canadian Thanksgiving in a couple of days, & I’m so excited to spend the day cooking and baking delicious food with my mom, while my brothers sneak bites of food and my mom and I pretend not to notice.
It’s going to be our first Thanksgiving at my parents new house & I can’t help but be excited about this being the first of many special Thanksgiving dinners that we will spend there for years to come. My parents bought a new dining table, that is large enough for everybody to sit comfortably around – which is something of a change for our large family.
As I get older, I cherish more and more the times that the whole family can come together to enjoy a meal together & catch up on some much needed family time. So I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year.
