Joyous Chocolate Chip Cookies (with walnuts)

Sadly, there was nothing special about these. They were simply chocolate chip cookies. The weird thing is, is they were better the next day... I think it might be the corn syrup?
I got the recipe from The Search For the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie. A book I would highly recommend. :)
Happy baking!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Marbled Brownies

Here is the link for these soft brownies.
Things I would change/did change:
*Reduce oven heat to 325 degrees
*Put a 1/4 teaspoon more salt into the chocolate part of the brownie
*Look on youtube to see how to marble them better before marbling

Petit Fours

This is a wonderful recipe that my Nana and I made. The cake part is a buttery delectable pound cake. The glaze calls for almond extract (which I wouldn't put in) but besides that it's really good! Oh yes, and we thought that even though they look prettier if the cakes are higher, they would probably be easier to glaze if they were lower so keep that in mind. :)
Here is the recipe for the pound cake:
And here's the recipe for the glaze:
And sorry if the words are all bunched together. I've been having some problems with that lately. :)

Two-layer chocolate cake with marshmallow frosting

I made this for Saint Patrick's day. :) It turned out pretty much how I wanted it to despite the fact that I had planned on piping on a clover in the middle... that didn't work out. :P
The chocolate cake is actually the same as 1942 Devil's food cupcakes. It's a really chocolaty, tender and moist recipe.
Here's the recipe for the (VERY easy to make) frosting...
1 egg white
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine egg white, sugar and cream of tartar in a large bowl. Add boiling water. Begin at once to beat with electric mixer. Continue beating on high speed until thick and fluffy and mixture stands in stiff peaks. Add vanilla.
Frosts one 2-layer cake.
