1.17.2010


This may be a surprise to most people, but I had never made a cupcake in my life before last night. How did this happen, you may ask? There are a few factors at play. Firstly, I'm not wild about cake. I much prefer a cookie, a pie, or a piece of candy. Secondly, it seemed like too much work. I haven't done much baking in the past few years.

But with 2010 feeling like a real fresh start (PS. I accidentally typed "shart" and cracked myself up before fixing it. Sigh.), the holiday gift of Chronicle Books' Cupcake Kit, the appearance of some cupcake pans in my kitchen, and a glorious month off, the time was finally right!


Yes, I used a boxed mix. Yes, I used pre-made frosting. But I'll be damned if my first cupcakes are not the greatest cupcakes ever! The little flowers came from Miette. So proud!

Such a darling cupcake!
I love the multiple-flower, sweet little meadow look you came up with. So smart!

Thanks for the support, gang! I used to be a bit of an obsessive cookie decorator, so I'm no stranger to a pastry tube. I feel like there may be more cupcakes in my future!

Tess, you should know that Miette makes my heart explode with joy--thank you so much for your comment!
