Today marks the third anniversary of my first blog post on Marisa Bakes, and I knew I wanted to celebrate with a fun and colorful recipe perfect for any sort of celebration. And what better way to celebrate than with a mini funfetti cake all for yourself?!
Yep, you heard that right! A mini funfetti cake that’s all yours. A Mini Funfetti Cake for One! But if you’re feeling generous, you can share too!
I know January can be exciting because its the start of the new year, which means lots of resolutions, reflections, goals and planning, and that’s pretty cool, but one of my favorite things about the month is all of the leftover Christmas candy I get to slowly work my way through. One of my absolute favorite types of Christmas candy is a chocolate orange. If you’ve never had one before, it’s basically a ball of chocolate that breaks apart into slices when you whack it on the counter. What’s not to love about that?
There are a lot of classic holiday desserts out there, but one of my favorite things to make every year is gingerbread cookies. Even though they can be fun to decorate, I’m all for a really good plain gingerbread cookie. It’s crisp around the edges, yet chewy in the middle, and it makes the whole house smell like ginger and molasses.
