Baking with the Pioneer Woman

Hey all, I wanted to show you a quick set of pics from the first half of Monday. Pioneer Woman made her Chocolate Sheet cake recipe (so yummy, by the way) for some cupcakes and then I showed her a few tips on using fondant. Here’s a peek. We had a blast. I’ll recap the photos later, but for now enjoy!

    Wish I could be there!

  3. Jealous! So cool you guys are doing this.

  4. Awwww – the cupcakes are adorable!

  5. I’m so jealous I can’t see straight…I kept checking to see who the winners were to go…but couldn’t find a list. Lucky Ladies!!!

  6. Love looking at it from your perspective.

  7. Wow, so lovely, bet they taste divine!!!! What talent, and the ranch looks awesome!!!! How nice to have so much room to create….. love the colored pots too!!!
    I have the red ones.
    Cheers

  8. very cool :) I love how blogging has brought so much personality to the internet, and two amazing bloggers can combine forces for everyones benefit. cant wait to see all the photos…

  9. I’m so freakin jealous right now Bakerella! You know that I should be there with you. You look like you are having a ball and I can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back. I want to see pics of you and MM working in the barn or mending fences. I need proof that you actually did alittle work instead of just fun fun fun!

    We miss you!

  10. OH…how I would have loved to be there.

    I wanted to so badly, but alas, I live 50 billion miles away.

  11. It looks like you had a blast! The Ranch is absolutely beautiful!!

  12. I can’t think of a better way to spend a day. Or a week. Or, you know, whatever…than baking with you two and hanging out on the ranch. Looks like a blast.

  13. so awesome! i am like the others…wishing i could be there. :) can’t wait to see what all you’re up to! :)

  14. Oh how I would love to be there eating all those yummy things but then I would feel obliged to do laps of the ranch land ;-), enjoy each others company. I can’t believe two of my most favourite blogs are in the one place.

  15. You should try twitterfall, it’s shinier than twitters search function http://www.twitterfall.com/bakerella for example :) I love all the pictures (love seeing PW’s MM wears his hat indoors!).

  16. AH! I’m so jealous!

  17. How fun!!!

  18. Thank you for sharing the sneak peek!
    I have been so curious!
    Wondering who the young man with the video camera is?

  19. You and PW are two of my favorite people! So nice that you two got together! Have a BLAST!

  20. (Oh, there she goes, flaunting her Le Crueset collection…just touch them for me, ok?) ;)

  21. Wonderful photos Bakerella and Thank you for sharing with us your time together with Pioneer Woman. Both you ladies are so talented, I am sure we will all be amazed with what comes out of today.

  22. How fun!!! Looks like you’re baking up lots of fun :-)

  23. I so wanted to win and be there with you both today. The photos are great and I can’t wait to see more!

  24. I’ll never win a day with the PW, and I could never make it that far away for a weekday session. Being an adult really isn’t fun sometimes. SIGH!

  25. The pictures are so fun. I especially love the one with MM on the computer at that giant table. :)

  26. The pics are beautiful. Yumm, I love that chocolate cake recipe.
    Have a great day :)

  27. So sad I didn’t get to be one of the onlookers today since it would only be an hour or two drive… it looks like quite the production. I can’t wait to read all about it on both blogs!

  28. Wow…what a kitchen! She must be some cook to have that kitchen! And her chocolate sheet cake looks amazing! The pictures make me want to leave work and go home to bake.

  29. Two of my favorite bloggers in the world together? It’s almost too much for my wee little heart to bear!

  30. oh my gosh! those pictures are awesome! and that kitchen is to die for! and of course we’re all jealous! hahah!

  31. That is the kitchen of my dreams!! How many le creuset pots can a gal have?!

  32. There is a tv show on the N channel which is part of Nickelodeon but it’s for teens (my kids tell me).
    Anyway, it has Jenny Garth and Amanda Bynes called What I like about you. Have you seen it? They have a cupcake store with the cutest cupcakes! It made me think of you.

  33. I am so jealous! It all looks like so much fun! Beautiful cupcakes.

  34. WOW! Chocolate!!!! It looks so yummy! Can’t wait for more! How fun!

  35. oh wow… what great photos – i am tag team watching the goings on between these two sites… what a lot of fun – cant wait to see yall make those pops – hoping to pick up a hint on how to keep them from being the mush that mine always are…. what a fun experience.

  36. I want to be there…I want the lodge…I want the kitchen space…heck I will just settle for some more pictures.

  37. Great photos. Is it wrong to be so damn jealous?

  38. OMG that’s so awesome. I think we all would have loved to have been just teeny little flies to witness two of our favorite bloggers together.

    Can’t wait for the play-by-play!

  39. I wanted SO BADLY to win the invitation to come with… :( Still crying… But I can’t wait to see all the yummy photos you gals will put up. My two favorite bloggers! How fun!

  40. Are you guys like each others biggest fans?? haha I bet you guys had a blast!! I can’t wait to see more of what you did together! I Love both of you–you are so inspiring and I am so thrilled to see what you came up with together!

  41. So envious Bakerella. Great pics of The Lodge, things we have never seen. I almost died when I heard you were headed to Ree’s. Next time the contest should not be for people who live within driving distance of the ranch. HAVE CREDIT CARDS WILL TRAVEL! TWO OF MY FAVORITES!

  42. I’m dying to see video of you guys!! Take us there with you!!

  43. I really wanted to eat one of those cupcakes! And your fondant is perfection. I aspire to be a BAKERELLA,too!!!

  44. It looks and sounds like you had a fabulous time.

    I made your cupcake pops today for the first time! They turned out really well. They are a hit! Fun to make too!

    If you’ve got a minute take a peek: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mommyknows/3345202813/

    Thank you for sharing this great recipe with us ALL!

  45. Hmm…you can make cupcakes out of her chocolate sheet cake…who wudda thunk it? Looks like y’all are having fun?

  46. Wow! I am so jealous with those beautiful pics…and cupcakes!!

  47. Looks like you had a fabulous TIME! The photos look just as fun and I hope you had a blast, which I am sure you did because you have the most sunny disposition = )

  48. I’m excited to see the posts!!! I wish I could have been there!

  49. Wow… my first time to you (courtesy of P Dub of course!). I am not jealous at all. All that washing up. All that mess. All that filming and focussing… nope. Not jealous!!

    Seriously, your cakes are adorable and I love, love your slideshow from the day’s activities. Know that when you maximise on a big screen those pixels go a little crazy. But I HAD to check it out at maximum velocity!

    Will check back later…
    :-)

  50. What can I say!!! If you could see me now, you would think I’m Shrek related, so GREEN am I right now because of the envy. I’m sure you had a great time together. And… by the way, the kitchen in the photos is quite similar to the kitchen in my dreams. Snif!

    xoxo for both.

  51. This is better than Bradgelina or whatever they call them.
    Wish I was there too.

  52. Oh, I can’t see the pics (some stupid new filter on my PC) but I bet it was a BLAST!

    And now I NEED cake…

  53. I have really enjoyed following your whole experience on both sites and twitter!

    Hope you have a safe trip home!

    My daughter is really digging your blog. She is cake obsessed
    and loves working with fondant. We can’t wait to make some cake pops!

  54. I lived in Oklahoma for 9 years and moved back home to NC almost 2 years ago. I never realized how much I actually miss it. Looks like you’re having a good time! :)

  55. You lucky ducky you!!!!!

    Just call me jealous!!!

  56. What a beautiful place! Looks like there was some serious creativity and inspiration going on! I have a question. Not sure if you can answer on the comments section, but my daughter will be turning 21 this week. I would like to try your cake pops! How long do they last? Can I make them ahead. How do you store them? Also, are there local stores that sell the edible pens or do you have to order them online? What beautiful blogs! You girls rival any magazine out there! You should be in print!

  57. so cool – looks like you guys had a great time!

  58. U guys sure are having fun…But who is that hot guy on the computer???? more pics of him pls..LOL

  59. I’m so jealous, can I come next time?

  61. That’s too cool! I can imagine the fun you had.

  62. It looks like such fun!

  63. How wonderful! Glad you had a good time. Lovely photos!

  64. Looks like all of you had a great time!

    After following this though, I swear I saw some easter egg pops on either your site or pw's site once & now I can't find it anywhere. Have you made them before?

  65. Miss Angie
    Don’t you just love Ree? I thought it was funny to see two of my favorite blogs/sites coming together. I follow Pioneer Girl as well as Bakerella. You’ll have to check out my blog too. I just started so it’s a little bare, but give me time.
    God Bless

  66. It looks like you are having SO MUCH FUN! Do you want to whip up something creative for my Leapin’ Leprechauns cookoff? The winner gets $100 worth of goodies from cookware.com! You are so amazingly creative, I’d love to see what you come up with! Details here:

  84. I loved reading your commentary on your visit to PW. I’m so glad she featured you; now I get to enjoy another blog!

  85. The photos – breathtaking.

    The chocolate cake – also breathtaking!

    I made up some cupcakes for work and word spread quickly – very quickly. I had people I didn’t even know asking for a cupcake! Sadly I only had 2 dozen, which were gone before I knew it. Thanks to PW for sharing the recipe, and thank YOU for sharing your photos!

  86. justafarmersdaughter – welcome back any time.

    ThePeachMartini – they were good, huh!!!!

  87. I have such kitchen envy right now! I have one of those le creuset pots too . . .but it takes up my whole darn kitchen! And certainly there’s no room for it to have friends . . .

  88. The Mustangs were beautiful….I love that you named the little white mare Buttercream!

  89. pretty interesting, bakerella. and neat!
