Strawberries and Cream Cake Kebabs

This sugary sweet kebab takes the idea of Edible Arrangements to a whole new plateau. The bakers at HowSweetItIs spice up your regular fruit kebabs by adding a soft and creamy cake with a strawberry infused cream glaze.  These Strawberries and Cream Cake Kebabs start off with strawberry infused cream cake, which consists of heavy cream, vanilla extract, sugar and strawberries. Alternate your skewer with pieces of cake and fresh strawberries, then drizzle some strawberry cream glaze all over your kebab (that is definitely what she said).

Root Beer Float Cupcakes

One of my favorite childhood sodas till this day is root beer, hands down! The rich deep taste never fails to satisfy me, but when we have vanilla ice cream in our kitchen, regular root beer usually gets the FLOAT treatment. With my affinity for Root Beer, you can imagine my fluttering heart when I was introduced to these Root Beer Float Cupcakes.


Scrambled Egg and Bacon Cupcakes

Don’t let that title throw you off, because these are definitely a game changer. First you start off with a bacon cupcake, then you make a heavy creamed frosting that takes the texture of scrambled eggs and finally top it off with a little piece of heaven; bacon that is. Check out the source for the recipe. (Thx Eatyourbestfriends)

Craving: Peanut Butter Cup Cake

When Bakerella craves chocolate, so do I. This cake is based on a mix, and has buttermilk and peanut butter cups added to it. The frosting is made from dark chocolate, peanut butter and heavy cream.
