Pound Cake with “Happy Birthday” Cake Bunting

Want a simple way to dress up any cake? Cake bunting!

I downloaded this “Happy Birthday” cake bunting, for free, and then attached it to a few strands of baker’s twine and some wooden skewers.  This is just your very basic cake bunting – if you look around, you can find some adorable cake bunting ideas to match virtually any theme.  Super easy to put together and will fancy-up even a store-bought cake if you are in a pinch.

Strawberry Buttercrumb Bites

These little numbers are probably what started my baking obsession. Every year at Christmas, my mom’s friend, Betty, would bake dozens and dozens and dozens of cookies – and we were the lucky recipients of a huge tin each holiday. Strawberry Squares were ALWAYS included and they were my favorite!

These Strawberry Buttercrumb Bites are my interpretation of that holiday memory. I tweaked the recipe and fancied up the name a bit, but they are still the same delicious little treats. I’ve made them with raspberry and blackberry preserves too – and they are just as yummy! A perfect addition to a breakfast or brunch menu!
