As we transition [slowly] from Summer to Fall here in Houston, I have found myself revisiting old recipes. The season change is never really fulfilled by the weather, so it always leads me to start changing the flavors I bake with to make it feel like Fall. Obviously, I’m talking about pumpkin spice.
You know when you’re sitting at home on the couch and a craving just comes over you for cake? Like a good piece of layer cake stacked tall with frosting and sprinkles and everything? This happens to me all the time, and since I don’t have an army to feed, I really just need one piece. The solution to this issue is simply to make one piece instead of an entire cake!
This past weekend one of my baking buddies (and overall good friend) got married to his best friend, Levi. They’re the type of people who are honestly friends with everyone, so the wedding was a huge assortment of friends and family from all over the country.
