Apple Cider & Caramel Cake

Yesterday all I wanted in my life was cheesecake. I thought about it all day, all night, and I’m pretty sure I dreamt about cheesecake. Now you may be thinking to yourself, “Tara is drunk, that picture does not look like cheesecake” AND YOU’D BE RIGHT. Wait…no, not about the drunk part, just that it’s not a […]

Raspberry Spice Cake

Hello blog, my old friend. I’ve come to talk with you again. Because a vision of cake softly creeping. Left its raspberry seeds while I was sleeping. And the vision, that was planted in my brain. No longer remains, Within the sound, of silence. BECAUSE I BAKED IT INTO A CAKE, FOOLS. Jesus, what has […]

Lemon+Coconut Chiffon

This has been my sister’s favourite cake ever since I made it for her birthday some years ago. I remember it being the very first layer cake I ever made that wasn’t chocolate, and the very first chiffon cake I ever made that I didn’t fuck up. It’s a special one to me, kids. It’s […]

Chocolate Banana Loaf of Sorts

I remember a few weeks ago trying to describe to someone this vegan chocolate cake from some bakery in Toronto that I had a few years ago. It was so good, but extra good when you put it in the microwave for just a few seconds before eating it. It. Was. SO GOOD! I barely […]

The Curious Case of Comfortless Baking

Normally when I bake and my little white cat is in the house, he’ll be in the kitchen with me. Hanging around by my feet, waiting for crumbs. He was like a dog. Yesterday I was baking a cranberry loaf cake. No sign of the little white cat. Today I baked a vegan chocolate cake. […]

Carrot Cake, Bitches. Or Why Tara Should Never Work From Home.

I got off work early today and thought to myself “Oh yes! A perfect opportunity to go home and work on all that recipe costing!” so I went home, and headed down to my cozy little cave and fired up the computer. I sat down and opened excel and starting tappa-tap-tap tapping away at those […]
