    Apple Stack Cake

    October 23, 2019Lauren

    Sweet and simple apple goodness! This beautiful apple stack cake has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. My grandma still makes this cake for my birthday and usually Thanksgiving every year! A few years ago she gave me a lesson on how to make it, but I must admit that mine never turn out as good as hers do. You better believe that this special cake will be in my first book one day! My Grandma is the definition of grace and her walk with the Lord has always been something that I admire so much. She has a laugh that makes anyone around her laugh along and I have never seen a day where she didn’t radiate this…

    Apple Cider Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

    November 7, 2018Lauren

    Okay friends… The struggle is real! I have been running around for days getting two Thanksgiving entertaining pieces together for a shoot this weekend and the Thanksgiving versus Christmas retail is just overwhelming. Today, I went in for eucalyptus and had to remind myself about five times that I wasn’t there for Christmas pieces! I am forcing myself to stay focused on Thanksgiving until this weekend’s shoots are wrapped up and then it’s full fledged Christmas at the Cermak’s! As for these apple cider cupcakes… Yes, please! Every time I think I have a new Fall favorite, something else steals my heart. I love doing polls and asking questions on the GFG Instagram account. Last week, when I asked you all to be GFG editors…

    A Classic Spice Cake

    October 24, 2018Lauren

    Friends, I have found a new obsession… You guessed it – spice cakes! With so many Fall ingredients loaded into one cake, I simply do not know how one could not love this seasonal dessert. I garnished this one with pears, plums, candied walnuts, and some honey, but if I am being honest… This cake doesn’t need a thing. I actually ended up picking the fruit off of my piece and eating the cake all by itself! And yes, the leftover cream cheese frosting in my fridge has been a major blessing in my life this week! If spice cake just isn’t your thing, you can find more Fall recipes here! Are you ready to embrace your best Fall self and make this spice cake…

These pumpkin spice madeleines are more than likely going to change your life and if you aren’t convinced, just take a look at that glaze! As I type this, batch number 6 is in the oven, batch number 5 is in my belly, and batch number 4 is all packed up to make someone very happy. So, if you aren’t in the Fall spirit I suggest moving on to the next post because these madeleines are down right festive! Admittedly, I am not a coffee lover so the PSL just isn’t my thing. Everything else pumpkin spice… Absolutely my thing. You all know I love madeleines and basically any French sweet. Remember these…
