Cinnamon Buns…the next step to being The Male Baker. Although they do take quite some time to make, they were worth every second of my time. They give the house an aroma that no one can resist. Store bought cinnamon buns do not compare to these at all.
Growing up my mom always used to make cinnamon buns that Jon, Ben, Amanda (my three sibs) and I would just go nuts over. Continue reading
Auctions…gotta love em. Have you ever been to one? Well, The Male Baker has and man was it a hoot! I enjoyed it so much that I didn’t even go, only my Carrot Cake did. I was asked by my friend Amy to bake a fancy dessert that she could take to her 7 year olds school auction. Once I heard of the task at hand, I got right down to business.

The Male Baker as a matter of fact! I saw a recipe in my trusted Baked book and I decided to use it as a base.
To give these scones my own flare, Continue reading
