Raspberry Love 

Food February 22, 2016


I wanted to make my sweetie a little something sweet for Vday. But I didn’t have a ton of time and my oven was really not my biggest fan so two tries later we had something to be proud of. Here’s how I made a delish raspberry reduction for a French vanilla cake. 


What you’ll need: 

1 1/2 cup frozen raspberries 

1 tablespoon cornstarch 

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 

1/4 cup sugar 


It’s really simple. Put all of this is a medium sauce pan, heat it up, and stir. When it starts to look a little like jelly you’ll know you’re done. 


I honestly didn’t make this cake from scratch. I bought a French Vanilla box cake and called it a day. But it was delish.   


I finished it off with a raspberry reduction heart. It was pretty easy I just put a cookie cutter on top and used it as a stencil. Happy baking!!!

Advice July 26, 2011

Too many people are saying “love me” and too few are saying “I love you.”   Remember if two people are focusing on themselves nobody gets their needs met.  However, if each of you are focusing intensely on the other everyone is a winner.  So, I love you Cigars&Cupcakes readers!!!!
