Pumpkin Mousse Cake for a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving

Pumpkin Mousse Cake for a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving

Lulu celebrates her first Thanksgiving down in Brazil and makes her first gluten-free dessert - this gorgeous pumpkin mousse cake, starring an almond/rice flour Génoise cake, topped with a beautifully spiced rum-kissed pumpkin mousse. How delightful! I would so love to be there... but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'm happy enjoying this brilliant recipe right where I am. :)

Hungarian Cake

Hungarian Cake

Tena had me at "chocolate-rum cream." You too? Keep reading - it gets better!

This traditional Hungarian cake alternates between thin layers of moist cake and the aforementioned infamous chocolate-rum cream. The icing on the cake? A combination dark chocolate/milk chocolate glaze that hardens on top.

Triple Butterscotch Cake

Triple Butterscotch Cake

Shanon made this decadent butterscotch cake to celebrate her 30th birthday: butterscotch cake batter dappled with pecans, thick butterscotch buttercream icing and a butterscotch drizzle on top. She admits that it's a bit of a splurge, but it's her birthday - she's allowed!!

Happy 30th Birthday Shanon! I hope your day was fabulous (and sweet)!

Coconut Cream Bread

Coconut Cream Bread

Check out this sweet and rich yeast bread, that tastes like brioche (even though it's vegan), and is studded with rum-soaked raisins - awesome! This recipe is versatile too - you can even make it into a batch of killer cinnamon rolls.
