The Winners: Dolly Parton’s Birthday Cake!

December 4, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

We are so entirely pleased to announce the winners of the #BakedForDolly contest. As mentioned, this is our first (and favorite) Baked contest. We just asked YOU to make a cake for Dolly for her birthday (and photograph and hashtag it) – similar to what we did in our latest book, Baked Occasions. …and we were blown […]


Chocolate Cheesecake and Dessert-apoolza

November 25, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Yup, our new store is open. You should come. It is awesome, but it has been a whole lot of insanity. And now Thanksgiving is nipping at the heels…and well, I am too old for this excitement and madness. I promise to spill more words about the buildout and opening shortly, but right now I […]


Secrets of a Recipe Tester : Behind Baked Occasions

October 29, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Pure and Simple: Great cookbooks are made possible by great recipe testers (and a slew of other talented beings).  For our latest cookbook, Baked Occasions, we were lucky to work with some of the hardest working butter/flour/chocolate/sugar addicts across the country. They tested many recipes, many multiple of times, and they were not timid (thank you…I […]

Baked to the Rescue: A Very Vanilla Celebration Cake

October 8, 2014 | By johannah | 0 Comments

  In my family we have a time-honored tradition: there has to be cake. However, when you make cake a part of your daily life, this ups the ante when there’s actually something to celebrate. No regular old cake will do. There must be layers. Frosting is mandatory, as is tasteful decoration. Of course, it […]

October 1, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I am going to get right to the point here. This contest, our #BakedForDolly contest, is quite simply the best contest. Ever. At least in our humble opinion. It is the ultimate combination of two of our favorite things: Cake and Dolly Parton. And all of you amazing bakers should enter, because there is a chance […]


Halloween Pop Tarts : Free Pre-Order Recipe

September 18, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

It’s almost fall. Leaf peeping, pumpkin picking, hot apple cider-drinking fall. This is a very good thing. Because as much as we love summer bike rides and pools and BBQs and beaches, we really REALLY love fall. Put away the shorts. Unearth the stretchy pants. Fall baking (and eating) approaches. We have much to celebrate […]


The Stripper Pole reimagined – for Cakes

September 10, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

We (myself/Renato) have many, many things we would like to tell you about our new bakery-in-progress, Baked Tribeca. First, it is nearly open (we are being purposely vague here with an exact date, because…well, because construction is a special kind of hell and we originally thought we would be open in July). Suffice it to […]


Baked Tribeca : A Quick Update

Hope everyone is enjoying this last bit of summer – this perfect NYC summer. Drink it in and drink it up. Fall (and a new Baked) await you. We are getting a bunch of questions about the new bakery – probably because a few fall previews are starting to publish. So, if I may, just […]


Make Your Own Homemade Nutella (Please!)

August 13, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I really really like Nutella. Always have. Always will. It is part of my baking repertoire (Nutella scones anyone?) and it is the one hi/low foodstuff that is a constant in my pantry. However, over the years, I have been cheating on Nutella – experimenting with all sorts of homemade versions (including this one featured […]
