Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Sweet Links

Above? That's me with Ben. OF BEN & JERRY. I got to visit their Vermont HQ this week - more about that soon!

Battenberg Cake: A good showoff cake for Spring, and to consider for upcoming Mother's Day. (Serious Eats)

This vegan lemon meringue pie features a meringue top made with...chickpeas!? (Seitan Beats Your Meat) - thanks Ren for the lead!

Unicorn wine holder. Truly magical. (Amazon) - thanks Ren for the lead!

Desserts, pastries, and candy named after famous people. (CakeSpy)

Strawberry Shortcakes made with strawberry biscuits. The fruit makes it health food, and the perfect early spring treat. (Grandbaby Cakes)

Cute DIY Easter treats. Coo-worthy fo' sho'. (Cool Mom Picks)

Um...what is the difference between baking soda and baking powder? (Craftsy)

Chocolate. Covered. Brownie. Ice. Cream. Sandwich. (Good Life Eats)

In case you missed it: Cadbury Creme Egg Rolls. (CakeSpy)

Simple lemon pudding. Sounds about right to me. (One Hungry Mama)

Good question: how can I make homemade bread less dense? (The Kitchn)

Veggie stew. Not sweet, but you have to warm up for cake somehow. (Craftsy)

I make a pretty darned good interview. (Foody Direct)

Book of the week: Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book. Before I went to Vermont this week, I actually didn't know this book existed, but it's great. It features the story of how the company started and took off (which is pretty interesting and worth buying the book alone) plus some accessible ice cream recipes. It's a good book to have on your shelf.
