Cake Wrecks

I have a baking problem.  So does my sister in law.  And when you get the two of us together for a few days, some strange (and delicious) things happen

Don't judge a book by its cover -  it's made from scratch; a white cake with lemon filling.  We're still working on the "fluffy white frosting."  It tasted great!
We tried our hands at buttercream icing in May with great success.  L and I made tons of these for the boys' birthday cakes:
And we made my grandmother's cinnamon roll recipe, too.  We stayed up late waiting for dough to rise so we could eat these delicious little guys in the morning:
After experiencing sweet success, we upped the ante in August with this delicacy: tiramisu!
Always remember, though, pride comes before the fall:
We had to redeem ourselves this time, so we chose a recipe destined for greatness: Grandma's Sweet Potato Pie.  Can't wait to dig in tonight!
I guess it's our adult version of make-believe; we'll never open a bakery, so we just pretend we have our own cooking show!
