Butterbeer Poke Cake

I made a Butterbeer Poke Cake to eat over this fantastic weekend to celebrate Harry Potter's birthday and the release of the new book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which both happen on July 31st,

I'm a huge fan of poke cakes since it ends up being super moist and gooey. I had the idea to make a butterbeer one when I came across another recipe that required pop in the recipe. Luckily last year I made Butterbeer Ice Cream Floats so I knew where to buy vanilla cream soda since it's difficult to find in Canada.

Butterbeer Poke Cake

  • vanilla cake (use your favourite recipe or a boxed mix)
  • vanilla cream soda
  • toffee bits
  • whipped topping
  • butterscotch topping


1. When you make your vanilla cake, replace the water (or milk) with the vanilla cream soda. Use a long 9" x 13" pan for this cake. Let the cake cool completely before moving to the next step.

2. Using a butter knife, make small cuts in your cake and drizzle your butterscotch topping into the holes. Don't worry about making a mess.

3. Sprinkle toffee bits over cake. Next, spread your whipped topping over everything.

4. Drizzle more butterscotch over the whipped topping and add even more toffee bits. Easy, right?

This cake is so yummy and super gooey from all the butterscotch. The toffee bits add a nice bit of crunch to this soft cake too.

I'll be heading to the Midnight Magic event at Indigo books Saturday night to pick up my copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I'm super pumped to go and I may have to splurge on a Butterbeer Frappuccino from Starbucks.

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
