Cooking with Sara: Pass the Champagne, Please

This week's recipe is a celebratory Pink Champagne Cake.  What are we celebrating, you ask?  Well, today is Blah author Mellisa's birthday!!!  And...tomorrow is mine :)  Plus, any of you who've spent any New Year's with me knows how much I love champagne.  (I may or may not have vague recollections of forcing my beloved raspberry champagne onto random strangers at a New Year's Eve party.)

And, to please the mobbing crowds, I'm posting my out-takey, behind the scenes pictures here.  We should definitely toast to ridiculous photos made public.  Raspberry champagne anyone?


Yours truly in action.

I wasn't lying about making messes every. freaking. time.

Ever wonder what happens when you turn the mixer on to whip heavy cream and then get distracted by the huge pile of dishes in the sink and only come up for air when your friend starts saying, "oh! oh! oh!"  No?  Just me?  Well, you make butter.  For seriously. 

We taste tested for you.  We really are that generous in real life.

I'm that much of a dork in real life too.

Only my sister shares my love of ugly face photos.
Someday, I'll get one of the both of us doing them together.


  1. Yum! I enjoyed the out takes too! You call that a mess? Nah! You should come and see my kitchen after a cookie-making session. Happy Birthday to Melissa!

  2. Oh and we got a package in the mail with delicious (and gluten free) Valentine's Day cake pops in the mail. Thank you so very much, that was incredibly sweet of you. As soon as she opened the package, Alycia started nibbling on one of them.

  3. I love your outtakes!! You should seriously put a link up to your site in your future posts!! Thanks so much for the sweet shout out!!

    Happy Birthday!!

  4. Happy Belated birthday!!
