Tuesday Treats

April 10th, 2012 13 comments

Thanks for all the nice comments on yesterday’s post! My race is on the 22nd and the runners for NUUN’s Hood to Coast teams will be announced on the 24th, so we’ll know the outcome of both soon enough. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for both!

To celebrate the holidays I always like to bake something festive for the boys. We still have cookies in the freezer from Christmas so a cake it was.


I’m still on the hunt for the perfect cake recipe, so I took a chance and tried this one that I found on It turned out nice, but still not what I’m looking for.


But the frosting. OH, THE FROSTING.


Do you not just want to stick your face in that bowl? So creamy and more delicious than I can tell you.

The recipe is a little time consuming (and time sensitive!), but so worth it. I’m serious. I’m not sure I’ll ever make another frosting (besides cream cheese frosting, duh). This is perfect. I got the recipe here.


This cake is probably the reason my legs felt so heavy on my run yesterday. :)

But so so worth it.

Do you have a go-to cake recipe?? Please share!
