How to: Root Cellar Cake

Well, I never saw the day coming where I'd be making a Root Cellar cake. Sure, I've made a lot of random cakes in my day - a Gangster Sloth, a 'fermented' Wolf Head, and the ultimate nerd cake collab for a Nerdy 30 party, but a root cellar? Nope, didn't see that one coming!

If you're not familiar with root cellars, they're essentially cellars that are built directly into the ground or out of the side of a hill/cliff for storing your veggies. They're pretty standard in the area I'm from, in particular, down over the ridge in Elliston, where the town actually holds the title of being the 'Root Cellar Capital of the World'! So again, never thought I'd be making one out of cake and buttercream! However, when my Elliston-born biffle was celebrating a milestone birthday, giving me no theme to go on, it just somehow seemed right!

Belgian Milk Chocolate Dipped Sour Cream & Onion Ruffles

There's nothing like the celebration of a biffle's birthday to really play around with your indulgent daydreams!! A couple of weeks back, one of my closest friends celebrated a milestone birthday and, since we both share an undying love for sour cream and onion Ruffles, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to bring one of those daydreams into fruition. And since they are basically a gift to humanity, I thought maybe I would share them with all of you. YOU'RE WELCOME! :) So without further ado, I bring you Belgian Milk Chocolate Dipped Sour Cream and Onion Ruffles!!

A Pizza Battle of Epic Proportions!!

Pizza is one of those foods loved the world over. No matter where you are on this planet, no matter what your taste, there is a pizza out there for you. And if you say you don't like pizza... well, the sooner you stop lying to yourself and everyone around you, the better! ;)

In just over a month, Las Vegas will once again become ground zero for pizza genius. Pizza professionals from around the world will get together at the International Pizza Expo to do all things pizza. In light of this, I've been inspired by the folks at to come up with a pizza using only a Las Vegas resort  as my muse! Piece of cake pizza!

After discussing my pizza plans with my husband, to a response of... 'maybe you should pick another hotel?', things quickly escalated into an epic pizza showdown.

Queue music, 'cause there's about to be a Pizza War!
