While I was planning my baking agenda this week (that's totally normal right?) it occurred to me I can't remember the last time I made cupcakes. Sure enough when I checked here to confirm it's been over a month since I made cupcakes! What?! How could this be - this had to change and fast. Sure we've been consumed with fun things like Ice Cream and Macarons but cupcakes and me we're like peanut ... [ read more... ]
