Michael Jackson Cake

Hello! I just love fall. I have always been a fall person, and I hope I always will. Whether I’m fall-ing down the stairs, or just smelling the beautiful scents of cinnamon, pumpkin and Christmas (not necessarily all at the same time) I just love fall. Sure, the falling part sucks, but that one happens every day of the year.

Fall is just the perfect time for everything. It’s the perfect time to bake because it is FINALLY cooling down enough to heat the oven (not that that stopped me in the summer)… It’s the perfect time for friends because you are always giving and getting presents… It’s the perfect time for creativity because you’ve got Halloween coming along… (Do I hear cakes and crafts coming?) And it is absolutely the perfect time to have some you time. Whether it’s baking or settling in with a warm cup of tea… It’s just by far the most busy, yet relaxing and wonderful time of the year.

Accidental Banana Bread

Honestly, I wasn’t trying to make banana bread. It just kind of happened. It was pretty late at night (or I perhaps should say it was pretty early in the morning) and I decided it would be brilliant to use that nearly rotten banana to make a banana treat. So I took out my ingredients and set to work, hoping to make up my own recipe for banana blondies. So did not work. Looking back, I can see exactly why it didn’t work… but I was confused when it was nearing 2 or 3 am and I pulled out a pan of banana bread rather than those banana blondies my taste buds had been itching to try. All well. I may have created my own delicious banana bread in my half awake state… Already, it’s nearly gone and it’s been less then a day.
