Big Announcement!

Hey everyone! Big announcement today! It’s a little secret I’ve been holding onto for a while now and DYING to tell you about.

Maybe you’ve noticed that I’m posting a little less often, maybe you haven’t. But the reason? I’m writing a COOKBOOK!

I know. Crazy! And insanely time consuming (hence the fewer posts on the blog). I’ve been talking and working with a publisher since March. It’s been a long process – in large part because of me. But now it’s official!

So what is the book about? Well, what do I love the most? What do you love the most (at least I think so 🙂 )? CAKE!! All kinds of CAKE!!

As you know, I’m a cake girl. Always have been, always will be. There was no doubt in my mind that cakes were what I’d want to write a cookbook about.

There will be cupcakes, single layer cakes, layered cakes, ice cream cakes, cheesecakes and more! There’s even a couple chapters on my best advice and tutorials for everything from what tools to use and how to get your pans ready for baking, to tutorials on some of my favorite methods for decorating beautiful cakes.

Are you as excited as I am?! Please say YES! This book has already been a major work of love. I’m so excited with what I’ve done so far and I hope more than anything that you all will love it too. I’ve tried my hardest to get a variety of recipes included that you could make for any and all occasions. There’s even a chapter on holidays.

And the tutorials? Well, I’m all about decorating cakes in the most simple, but beautiful way. If you are like me, sometimes you have the time to dedicate to an elaborate cake and other times you want something a little more simple, but still beautiful. The decorating tips and tutorials range from quick and simple, to a little more involved, but all make it easy to make a beautiful cake.

If you are wondering, there’s no fondant or anything like that. Much like most things you’ll find on my blog, the decorating is all about using foods that are already in the cake, sauces, chocolate, buttercream, etc to decorate. There are so many simple things you can do and I can’t wait to put it all into one book for you.

I hope you’re as excited as I am! You don’t even have to wait that long to get it (in book writing time). It’ll be out a year from now – October 2016. Get ready for lots of updates as I share the craziness with you. I’ve already shared a few sneak peaks on Snapchat and will be doing the same on instagram, so if you want some behind the scenes peeks along the way that’ll be the best place to check it all out.

Also, I want to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who reads, bakes, comments, follows on social media, gets my emails, emails me, etc. However you keep up with the recipes and blog – thank you! It is because of you that I’m able to do something I never thought I’d be able to say I’m doing – writing a cookbook. You are the ones I’m writing this for. I’m doing my best to make it the best book I can for you. So thank you, thank you, thank you. Your support has always and always will mean the world to me.

    Wow! These desserts are making me weak. I’m badly craving for it right now. sweets are really my weakness. Lol! They all look delicious.

  2. Heather nykun

    I have tried two of your recipes so far and they both were great! I just started the Wilton buttercream class lass week and to be honest I hate straight shorting buttercream.


      I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the recipes so far Heather! And I hear you on the all shortening buttercream. Not the best.

  3. Jessica @ Sweetest Menu

    WWow, wow, wow, wow, wow! Love the blog – and seriously knock-out photos and props, particularly recently. Love the weekly scriptures. Love that you love Romans (8:38-39 is my life verse). Love that you are putting that great stuff into a binding for us. Congratulations!!

    Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing the Cookbook or should I say Bakebook.
    I hope you are sending a consignment of books to South Africa.


      Thank you! The book should ship internationally and will have ingredients measured in weight and ml. I fully expect it to be available in SA, as my husband’s family is there and can’t wait to get it. 🙂

  12. Teri Giese

    Congrats on the book! Began following you because of the cakes!! Very new to blogs and trust me when I say, in Arizona is near impossible to buy a decent cake.Moved here from Wisconsin, where my childhood bakery closed its doors for good. Would NOT give anyone their white cake or frosting recipe!! How evil, right? Hansen’s bakery in Green Bay, Wi.You must share! But, I have printed a ton of your recipes,as well as a few other blogger cake and buttercream recipes. Believe I may be able to produce the desired taste. Now about the cake decorating, love yours! Next on list, learn piping technique… ????

  13. Kelly Mikolich

    Congrats!! Your cake recipes are all fantastic and are my go-to’s!!! DEFINITELY buying your book when it comes out!! 🙂

  14. Mary

  15. emily sue pike

    I love my kitchen and love to cook but have yet to try cakes.
    No kids or grands and hubby like cookies but your book may change things PLUS I see a great 2016 Christmas gift for a mom of 3 young “pseudo grandchildren”
    I wish you the best. I too write and know the angst and frustrations ahead so send you my favorite verse and mantra : WHEN IN A FIX. PHILIPPIANS 4:6 !!! Keeps me on track and sane . Excited and wish you the best — emily sue

  16. Michelle @ My California Kitchen

    Awesome! Congrats 🙂 So excited for you (and for October, when I can get this book!)

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Your cakes are gorgeous and this would probably be the one food blogger cookbook that I would buy and love. So excited for you!!

  19. Lindsey

    YAY! Every cake I’ve made from your blog has been a huge success, I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with for your first book! Congratulations!

  20. Stephanie

    This is very exciting – for you and for me! I pretty much don’t even have to read your recipes, I just hit “Pin” as quickly as I can click my mouse. I have made several things from your site and have always been very happy with them. In fact, we used your Funfetti Sugar Cookie cake to share our pregnancy news with some family: (I did a second post with a link to the recipe; gotta give credit where credit’s due!)



      Thank you Stephanie! That pregnancy announcement is so cute and I love that cookie cake! 🙂

  21. Lisa Bigon

    How exciting for you and for us! It’s so wonderful that we get to travel this journey with you. With every recipe you’ve shared, you’ve allowed us into your home and life. We are all so very happy for you! Joy to you and your family! 🙂

  22. Daniela Fonseca

    Hi Lindsay congratulations! I’m very glad that you are embracing this kind of project! It’s very huge, you need to work hard but you will be rewarded for your efforts! I wish you the best and I’m looking forward to see more of your recipes!
    Kisses from your number one portuguese fan 😀


      Thanks so much! Definitely hard work, but I’m excited to see the finished book and share it with everyone. 🙂

  23. Diane

    Congratulations! I am really looking forward to your book! I have made many of your recipes, and can’t wait to have a bunch of ’em in a glorious book for me to page through.


        Haha! I thought some might think that. 🙂 And yes, I’ve said a few times that this book is my baby right now.

  24. Vickie

    I’m so happy for you! Congrats! Your cakes are too pretty to eat and your tutorials make it look so easy that anyone could do it. I’m sure your cookbook will be a best seller!

  25. Sheila
