Apple cinnamon cupcakes

This past summer a few girlfriends and I finally experienced high tea at the Ritz Carlton. We’ve been planning to go since winter but we’ve decided it would be nicer to drink tea in summer dresses instead of baggy sweaters. It was a lovely afternoon of drinking fancy tea and sampling dainty finger foods. Do not … Read More

Chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes

Last week I was in the mood to reminisce so I looked through my old baking photos, the ones I took before I started blogging in 2010. I love looking through old photos, it helps you remember the little things you often forget – like this amazing cookie dough cheesecake I made in 2009. I wish I started … Read More

Chocolate bacon cupcakes with maple frosting

October 25, 2015By joy's cozy ovenCupcakes No Comments

Is it too late to jump on the bacon chocolate hype train? The first time I experienced this sinful combination was at a food truck festival down at Toronto’s Distillery district a few years ago. There, I had a maple bacon donut from the restaurant Beast. It was pretty delicious for a donut even for a non-bacon lover … Read More

Wow it’s been a while since I blogged! I don’t even know where to start, so many things have happened since I last blogged – which was November of last year (cray cray I know). I will not have any excuses for my lack of blogging except for laziness. Though I did have a super busy … Read More

Red velvet cupcakes

Christmas baking season has officially began yesterday. With the snow sprinkling down and Santa Clause parade going on outside, there cannot be a more appropriate start date! The other reason is our work’s Christmas potluck / Secret Santa gift exchange is today. It’s pretty early because it is the last day where everyone is together … Read More

Time goes by so fast! I can’t believe the last time I blogged was last December. A lot has happened since my last post which probably explains my lack of blogging activity. First of all…a new job! I am loving it especially the fact that it’s a 10 minute walk from where I live – … Read More

As you probably noticed, I am on a cupcake baking frenzy. Yes I am indeed in love with baking cupcakes. They are just so fun to make! I love the infinite amount of flavour combinations they can have. I love picking out cupcake liners to match the colour of the icing. I also love frosting … Read More

Chocolate salted caramel cupcakes

Another chocolate cupcake post?! Yes! These cupcakes were requested by my boyfriend’s lab mates for a goodbye party of a PhD student – who loves chocolate. This was the perfect time to pull out my fancy schmancy cupcake liners I got at Toronto’s baking and sweets show a month ago for a more professional look. … Read More

Chocolate avocado cupcakes

November 17, 2013By cozyovenCupcakes, Vegan No Comments

This is for all the avocado lovers! I love its creamy, rich, and soft texture. Its subtle flavours also makes it a very versatile fruit, used in both sweet (avocado smoothies!) and savory dishes (sushi, sandwiches, salads). Another bonus is they are healthy, full of unsaturated fats (the good fats). So you can feel less … Read More
