Chocolate Marzipan Cake

Ahh you guys! Crumbs and Nibbles is officially… 3! 3 years ago today a 13-year-old me decided to concentrate my obsession with baking in the form of a blog. I knew next to nothing back then (i.e. my photography process was pretty much point, shoot, and post), but immediately I found real joy in each step of the blogging process. My first post ever was called “A Weekend of Baking: Snickerdoodles.”…

Funfetti Marzipan Rugelach

Hello from the sky! I’m currently sitting on a plane to Utah watching The Great Gatsby, munching on pretzels and enjoying my temporary freedom from schoolwork. This school year is going by so quickly and so slowly all at the same time. It’s been quite the whirlwind. I’ve been a busy bee what with all of the work and after-school commitments that come with junior year, so I’m very thankful for…

Chocolate Tahini Cake

Right now I am sitting in my grandparents' sunshine-filled living room, swaddled in a furry blanket, listening to a crackling fire, and dreaming of the Thanksgiving leftover-filled lunch that awaits. And right now, I finally have time to catch up on some blog writing. Junior year has been something else, my friends. It's been a whirlwind of stressful nights and looming deadlines, but also of hugs and great friends and the…

So get ready for a year full of procrastibaking and such :)…

Hey there! It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? I actually just go back from a summer as a counselor-in-training, but I’m very excited to get back into the swing of things and share some new content. I’ve just begun my last week of summer break, so I’ll be baking a LOT over the next few days before the crazy starts. I cannot believe it’s already September. I mean, where…

Chocolate Almond Croissants

Croissants are good. Homemade croissants are great. Homemade chocolate croissants are delicious. But homemade chocolate almond croissants? Now that’s heavenly. The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it with homemade croissants OR store bought, and it’ll be super yummy either way. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with almond cream and chocolate. I’m gonna keep this post pretty short and sweet, partly because I already wrote a…

Chocolate, PB & Banana Macarons

GUYS. I did it. I finally conquered the mighty macaron. I first made chocolate macarons two summers ago, and I thought I’d done a pretty great job. Sure, my cookies had giant cracks all over them… But I decided to focus on the fact that they tasted yummy and pretty darn macaron-like. So, with that history of (semi) success behind me, I decided to try my hand at making some regular macarons,…
