Celebrations and Sweet Treats

Can you ever have too much of a good thing? I'm a sweet kind of gal but I have to say I may be doing a detox after a weeklong celebration with Jonno.

There were sweet breakfasts at The American Club in beautiful Kohler, Wisconsin (creme brulee french toast and white chocolate raspberry waffles were both decadent delights).


Cupcakes galore. I used a recipe from my Martha Stewart Cupcakes cookbook and made 36 rich (and beautifully decorated) yellow buttermilk cupcakes with buttercream frosting.


And celebratory cakes at Carnivale (3 tiered ice cream cake!) and The Southern (deep fried twinkie and peanut butter bread pudding).

Good food and great celebrations all around! Now I just need to get back to my farmer's market visits and start a little bit of the dessert detox.


  1. Never can one have too many sweets!:) I'm just drooling looking at your cupcakes:)

  2. I think the fried twinkie was the reason I needed to ask for a seatbelt extension on the flight back to LA. Thanks for the delish cupcakes!

  3. Anna - maybe I'll bring something sweet to LI with me :)
    Jonno - I think I still have a few cupcakes in the fridge - should I save them?

  4. Yes, please bring sweets to LI :)

  5. Waaaait! What is peanut butter bread pudding? I need that! Yummo

  6. Oh yes, you would have LOVED it Lauren! Next time you're in Chicago :)
