    I’ve made several of your recipes & they’ve turned out great. However, just recently I can’t print/use any recipes because the font is about a 4 & the advertising at the bottom of the first page blocks out several steps. For instance, the Spice Cake recipe’s steps 12-18 are blocked out. I guess I won’t be able to continue receiving the recipes if I don’t have all of the instructions.

      Hmm, I’d probably do the caramel coconut filling as a filling in the middle of the cupcakes. Then I might top the cupcakes with caramel frosting (you’d probably need to increase that recipe to cover them all) and then maybe drizzle them with some chocolate ganache. Maybe even add a little toasted coconut to the top for decoration. If you use the full recipe for the cake, you’d probably end up with about 24 cupcakes, so you might also need additional filling. Hard to know for sure without trying it out. I hope that helps!

    Hi, Lindsay! Is your book homemade cakes come with another cover? I wanted to order from but the cover of the book shown on the website was different from the one sold on amazon. Can you please clarify my doubt as I would bery much love to order your book. Thanks! Happy easter!

    1. Lindsay

      I can’t guarantee anything, because I’m not real familiar with that site. But I do know that there is another cover floating around. My publisher originally had a different photo being used prior to us choosing the cover. If it’s a grey background with a pink cake, it should be ok.

    I just received your book in Greece. I think i’m in heaven.
    Keep doing what you’re doing, and we’ll keep follow your recipes.
    Best Wishes!!!

      I have shared a few cakes from the book on the site to promote the book, but otherwise the recipes in the book are all new/different.

    I realized most of my pins on Pinterest were from your site, so I started looking through your blog and really enjoyed everything on here. I saw you had a cake recipe book so added it to my wishlist and got it for my birthday! I’ve made your vanilla layer cake and the cherry chocolate chip ice cream cake and they were both a huge hit and delicious! I’ve been baking for 23 years and been constantly searching for the best and easiest recipes and your vanilla cake is a definite keeper! Can’t wait to try more of them…after my diet ends! ???? May God bless you and your journey with your family. Praying!

      Thanks so much Charity! Glad to hear you’ve been enjoying the recipes – both in the book and on the site!

      Thank you for the prayers as well!
