The Best Cream Cheese Frosting

If there’s one thing I’m really proud of, it’s my cream cheese frosting. I get so many compliments on it! I’ve lost track of how many people have told me this is the best cream cheese frosting they’ve ever had. While it existed already on therosetable.com, I decided to give it its due credit with…

Red Velvet Cupcakes

It took me fifteen+ years but I’ve finally perfected red velvet cupcakes. This is definitively the best red velvet cupcake recipe. These cupcakes are super soft, vibrantly red, and stay fresh for days and days. This recipe is very easy to make and the cupcakes bake up beautifully. The secret ingredient? A bit of cornstarch…

Chocolate Berry Hill Cake

A new version of one of my all-time favorite cakes!  My favorite German cake involves chocolate, a mound of my famous whipped cream, and bananas. Here I’ve swapped out the bananas for blueberries and chopped strawberries for a lovely red-white-and-blue chocolate cake. It’s the perfect cake to make when you’ve got gorgeous summer berries on…

Meyer Lemon Cupcakes

This is just the dreamiest cupcake I ever did bake! If you love lemon, you absolutely must try this recipe. It’s citrus season, darlings, and lemon just so happens to be one of my favorite flavors.

Chocolate Cinnamon Cake

This is one of those cakes that I’ve baked many times and have never published on The Rose Table. Why? I’m not sure! I baked these as cupcakes for my cookbook a couple of years ago and everyone raved about them and I thought, I need to blog this! Better late than never, right? This recipe…

Caramel Apple Layer Cake

I adore apple season. I almost exclusively eat apples in the fall when they’re at their very best. I combined my favorite apple cake recipe with my favorite caramel frosting and drizzle (you might recognize it from my Bananas Foster Cake) for the most magical fall cake. It tastes even more magical than it looks!…
