I'm going to start out by saying that Sky High is the best cook book I've ever owned.  I love it and if you like baking cakes, you will too!  

These are the same cake - the one on the cover - just two different times.  The first time I baked the layers in a rectangular pan and the second time I used cupcake tins.  SO delicious!

And these are chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese icing.  This recipe is also from Sky High, and it can be found online here.

This recipe is from AllRecipes, but I used cream cheese frosting.

Seriously - BUY SKY HIGH!!!

Thank you Smiley

Oh my gosh!  Calc has come very close to ruining my life MANY times this year.  It's my favorite class, but I was two percent away from failing last tri for quite some time.  Luckily (or not Tongue), so many other kids were having troubles that he offered us a make-up exam.  That plus the final brought my grade up to a C!  I'm happy to have the C, since it is an accelerated AP course, but it definitely damaged my GPA*sigh*

Too bad the math department is forbidden to grant extra credit, but at least the science department still can Cheesy

Thank you, guys!

We could bring in pie for extra credit (I don't know how the administrators let him get away with it, but I won't complain!) in my physics class, so just about everyone did.  My teacher gave us one problem to work on for the entire period (that had absolutely nothing to do with pi lol), and told us to just relax and eat. 

I wanted to make sure mine were easily transportable and didn't require cutlery/plates, and I figured making them as individual servings was the best way to go about things.  It was funny watching everyone run back and forth from the cafeteria to beg for forks and knives.  lol

I <3 math and I <3 pie.

10  COOKING / Dessert / Pi day + St. Patty's Edit on: March 14, 2009 08:49:39 PM

The recipe for the layers and the frosting is from Sky High, which is an amazing book.  Buy it.  Now.  For the filling I used stabilized whipped cream flavored with peppermint extract.  Yummy yummy!  Happy St. Patty's day!

Apple Pies:

I did these in very small batches, so I just kinda...  Winged it.  For six, I used half an apple, a bit of lemon juice, some cinnamon, some nutmeg, sugar, a sprinkle of salt, some flour, and a little water.  I cooked it on the stove until the apples were just tender and spooned it into my pie shells.  After topping with some decorative cut-outs (should have used an egg wash!), I baked them for about 10 minutes @ 350.

Strawberry Rhubarb - My fave!

Using the same method as above, cook equal amounts of rhubarb and strawberries, some flour and some sugar on the stove.  So tasty.  My Grandma used to make these, and hey make me happy because they remind me of her Cheesy

Peach Pies:

These had peaches (no way!), sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of flour.  Using the same method Smiley

The pie shells were all made with a recipe for pate brisee, cut into 4 inchish rounds and baked @ 350 in cupcake tins for about 15-20 minutes before filling.

I'm trying to be more adventurous with my baking and follow my heart instead of a strict guideline...
