It’s been one sweet year!

The holidays are almost over and the year is winding down. I’ve certainly had more than my share of sweets the last several days. Too much even. What about you guys?

But extreme sugar overload hasn’t stopped me from being super excited to start a brand new year of baking. A year of sweets and smiles.

Before more baking begins, here’s a quick look back at a few of my favorite posts from 2013. Check out the links below if you missed any along the way.

Enjoy and here’s to a Happy New Yummy Year!

MINI DOUBLE-DECKER CHOCOLATE DOUGHNUT COOKIES

These were way too much fun to decorate. And double-decking them totally makes them look like real little doughnuts instead of cookies.

CONFETTI CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

These are just simple, fun cookies cuted up with confetti sprinkles and pastel M&M’s. They’ll make you smile with every bite.

 

BOO THE DOG AND GRUMPY CAT CAKE POPS

I can’t stand how cute these came out. I love Boo… but then Grumpy Cat’s frown steals my heart. So I had to include them both.

PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

Umm… Cookies. Cupcakes. Peanut Butter. Chocolate. These are a win all the way around.

HUMMINGBIRD CAKE WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

I’ve been wanting to make one of these cakes forever and it did not disappoint. Sometimes I forget how much I love cake because I make so many other mini treats throughout the year, but this one makes me want to bake more big layer cakes.

BUNNY CAKE POPS

These glam bunnies might be my favorite easter-themed pops to date. So girlie and sweet.

CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER TRUFFLES

No-bake, bite-size yumminess. Yes and yes. And the coating possibilities make them so pretty.

BUTTERSCOTCH BROWNIE BARS

These were crazy good. I had forgotten all about them until going back through these old posts, but now I think I need to make another batch pronto.

LUCKY CHARMS MAGIC MUNCH

Individual sweet little snack bags with downloadable labels, too. Oh and just a warning – this stuff is super addictive, so if you plan on giving away as treats, make a second batch so there’s enough for you to nibble on, too.

MINIONS CAKE POPS

These guys. Oh my gosh. They turned out so cute. You have to check out the other characters I made, too!

OREO ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

Okay… these are the easiest things ever. But can I just say, they might have made me smile the biggest when I was making them. Yes, I was completely giddy… like a little girl. These would be fun for a sleepover with different flavors and sprinkles to play with.

STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING

This picture says everything. Make this right now. Oh my gosh.

JUST PEACHY HAND PIES

Little individual pies. I love how you can personalize these for people or label them for flavors by switching up the letters.

RAINBOW BRIGHT CUPCAKES

These fluffy frosting cloud cupcakes are smile inducing.

S’MORES BROWNIES

Chocolate, Marshmallows and graham crackers all baked up in a nice little brownie. No campfire required.

MINI POLAR BEAR CUPCAKES

It’s hard to tell here, but these are miniature cupcakes. Decorating them is easy and you don’t even need a piping bag. Just a few different size sprinkles.

BIG LOVE ITTY-BITTY CAKE POPS

Okay, this one took a template and a little time to do, but the effect is awesome. Take a look at the XOXO version, too.

SUGAR COOKIE DESSERT STANDS

I think this might have been my favorite project from last year. It was so much fun making teeny-tiny play food cookies and then having the tiered stands work out like I had imagined. I’m like a kid sometimes when things all come together and I certainly felt like one making these sugar cookies.

HUMPTY DUMPTY CAKE POPS

These happy little guys will steal your heart. They are suited up and ready to party. Check out their appearance at this Humpty themed baby shower, too.

 

Well, that’s it for a little random sweetness from the past 12 months. Hope you enjoyed looking at these again or even for the first time.

The Humpty Dumpty pops are amazing, and one of my favorite things you’ve ever done. But I love the cookie dessert stands. Those are probably my all time favs. Well done. And Happy New Year!

I remember the first day I came across your site about two months ago. I was looking for a chocolate & peanut butter cupcake recipe and apparently yours seemed more appealing to me. I’ve been looking through every single post/article you’ve posted since and let me tell you I don’t how I never found your site before. I love every single thing you posted. Thank you Bakerella.

Oh wow!! You’re amazingly talented. Look at how cute all of these things are from 2013. The indulgence of the peanut butter cookie chocolate cupcakes is intensely tempting. But I definitely think that the tiniest cookie cake stands have got to be the most impressive. I look forward to following you in 2014 :)

I’ve started trying to eat healthier this month, which includes cutting way back on sugar, and this post is not helping! LOL I think my favorite is the Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich recipe! Have to try them sometime on a cheat day! Thanks!

Angie, Those little sugar cookie stands were some of your best sugar genius to date!! My college girl Avonlea, came home last valentine’s and we whipped up a kitchen full of them over two days (*a wonderful memory) They turned out fantastic and we were soooo proud. We went about delivering them and everyone said they were TOO PRETTY TO EAT! …we coined a new drop off line. “These are COOKIES! We baked them just for you to eat! So leave them on your desk for everyone to squeal over and then take a cell phone pic, pour some milk and ENJOY YOUR Yummy Treat :) <3 !! " xoxo thank you xoxoxox & a very deep curtsy to you
