Funnel Cake makes me Happy!

"I know I shouldn't eat this," says the tiny voice inside my head.  Sometimes you just have to indulge especially for us North Americans, who love our carnival food, and funnel cake is just that.  Funnel cake just brings you back to a time when you were a kid.  Counting Carbs and watching our diets weren't even a thought in our tiny minds.  So why not push out the, "I should eat something better this week," and try making this fun past time with your friends or kidos.

Giving back can be fun | Updates | Giveaways

To my loyal fans out there, and the new ones, I have been producing baking "How To" videos for over 3 years now.  Sharing those simple cooking videos with the fans is what makes me happy.  Just knowing that you are having fun baking in the kitchen shows by all the comments and pics you send me on my facebook, twitter, and Instagram.  If you're anything like me, I am a visual person, and it just helps when I see it being done.  So when I started my show on YouTube it was intended as a fun hobby.  But then I quickly came to realize there really is a business-side to it as well.  So I got consistent by uploading a video every Saturday and talking to the fans in the comments and staying engaged to what my fans wanted to see.   

So how can I do more?

I will be starting up "Sweet or Spoiled" this Wednesday, and every Wednesday, to give you fun reviews on products, then give them away.  This will also be my Vlog Series where I update you on pregnancy news and funny things that are happing to me over the course of my pregnancy and when the baby gets here.  Of course, I will want to hear your stories and advice in the comment section.

Products to be looking forward to reviewing and giveaways:,, Surfas, Dessert Bullet, and the Pump Station (since I will be there a lot these next few months).

I would also love for you to be my Patreon. What is Patreon? It's a page where I will have exclusive videos, pics, funny videos, vlogs, that will NOT be on youtube, but only on Patreon.  Also, its a way for you to help me with the ever-growing production costs that go into Lovely Lady Cakes (such as baking grocery bills, lights, equipment).  So yes, check it out and please become my Patreon. :)

I really can't thank my fans enough, for all the inspiration and for constantly pumping me up to keep making video content!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies & Season 4 Is Back!

Paleo here, Paleo there, Paleo everywhere.  All my friends keep talking about their new diet called Paleo.  AKA: The caveman diet.  It's a pretty cool thing to cut back on sugar and focus on meats, seafood, veggies, fruits, and nuts.

So for my very first episode of season 4 I whipped up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies, and decided to make them Paleo.  I substitute sugar for honey, flour for almond flour, oil for coconut oil, and the chocolate chips are soy free, dairy free.

For a chocolate chip lover I do say they taste strange, but a good strange that totally grows on you.  Especially if you are diabetic and have to stay away from sugar I recommend this recipe.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups sifted blanched almond flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips (soy free, dairy free)

1 organic cage-free egg
1/3 cup raw honey (melted)
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking soda, and salt with a fork.
Add the chocolate chips to the dry mixture and combine.
In a small separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together, honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and egg. You may need to heat the honey and coconut oil in order to liquefy them, remember to heat before you add the egg.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until evenly mixed.
Let the dough chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. 
For baking the ramekins 
350 for 15 mins
350 for 11-12 mins
