On this great website you can find many of these cute and stunning hand-drawn recipes! If there is something nicer than cooking great food, it is making a recipe this cute afterwards. For me it is so much fun to look at these recipes, even if I am not planning on cooking something.
Better to share a well written receipe of one of my favorites than write it all over again!
Red Velvet Cake
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 2 cups sugar 1 Tablespoon cocoa 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 eggs 1 1/2 cups oil 1 cup buttermilk 1 Tablespoon vinegar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 oz. red food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour two 8 inch cake pans.
Lightly stir eggs in a medium bowl with a wire whisk. Add remaining liquid ingredients and stir together with whisk until blended. Set aside.
Place all the dry ingredients in your mixing bowl and stir together really good with another wire whisk.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix on medium-high for about a minute or until completely combined.
Pour into cake pans and then drop the pans on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
After about ten minutes, remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack. I also cover in plastic wrap while the cakes cool.
Then make the frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature 1 cup butter, room temperature 1 teaspoon vanilla 6 cups confectioners’ sugar
Sift sugar and set aside.
Beat cream cheese and butter on high until creamy. Add vanilla.
Then, add the sugar in batches. Scrape down the sides in between each addition.
And frost away.

The Pumpkin Pie Filling Recipe
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, and egg yolks. Stir in 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold into pumpkin mixture.
The Streusel Topping Recipe
2 T all-purpose flour
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1 t ground cinnamon
2 T butter, chilled
1 c chopped walnuts (I used pecans simply because I like them better.)
In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Blend in the cold butter with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly. Mix in the chopped nuts. This made almost twice as much as topping as I needed. Unless you want a ton of topping, you might consider cutting this in half
