Well, it has certainly been a long time since my last post! Rest assured, I haven’t forgotten about this site or my baking endeavors, but I did get a full-time job at the end of March, so I’ve certainly had my hands full. Just getting in baking projects has almost been too much these days,… Read More Lions and Tigers and Hippos, Oh My!

I got a few exciting baking-related presents this year; some… Read More Christmas Wreath Cake

One of these projects was a cake and cupcake order, and the second was a batch of sugar cookies made just for fun (because I love decorating cookies, and I love seeing how my skills improve every time). For the first of these projects, I made a… Read More Thanksgiving Treats!
