Buttercream & Bacon is Under New Management

Meet our new boss!

OwenHe is super cute but very demanding.  He isn’t shy about letting us know when we are not doing things to his standards. Most of our time is now spent keeping him happy, healthy and entertained. Owen has brought so much joy into our lives and we couldn’t be happier. He is a very happy and easy going baby.

We have taken some time away from the site to adjust to our new roles as parents and just enjoy all the amazing moments that come with having a baby, so the food blog posts may not be as frequent.

We are still taking orders for cakes, cupcakes and cookies for 2015, and you can check the gallery or follow us on Instagram to see our most recent creations.



Chocolate Lava Cake For Two

Oh boy have we been busy! Keith proposed at the end of October, and we have been pretty distracted ever since! The holidays can be hectic, throw in wedding planning, and well… we apologize. But we have been busy in the kitchen and have some delicious recipes to share! Like this chocolate lava cake! It is a good thing that this recipe only makes 2 servings or my waistline would be in trouble. Deliciously gooey chocolate inside a rich chocolate cake with a hint of orange….Yum!! It’s sure to satisfy any chocolate craving!

Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Muffins

For the past few weeks, Sunday morning seems to be muffin making time at our place. We love testing out new flavours, and have been using yogurt a lot in our recipes. We were out grocery shopping and came across apple- cinnamon yogurt, and decided to use it on Sunday for our next batch of muffins. It may be a limited time flavour, so you could always use plain yogurt and increase the apple and cinnamon if you can’t find this yogurt flavour. These muffins turned out really great! Almost like eating apple pie for breakfast. Yummy 🙂
