The Cupcake vs. Muffin Debate

This weekend, I made some cupcakes, which I will post on later, but, it got the wheels in my head spinning out of control over what the difference is between a muffin and a cupcake.  As I was searching the internet for pumpkin and apple flavored things, I came across many muffins and cupcakes and asked myself, what is the difference?  Continue reading

To Buy or Not to Buy: Cookbooks

Back in the ooooold days, if you wanted a recipe for a delicious homemade chocolate cake, you had 2 options:  Ask your mother for her great great grandmother’s recipe written on a piece of parchment from medieval times, or turn to your trusty sidekick – your cookbook.

The Brownie at the Top of the Mountain

My Best Friend’s Wedding (Cake) – Making My First Wedding Cake EVER!

Amy's wedding cake!

….But hopefully not my last!

I know, I know, I know, Amy’s wedding was two whole weeks ago – what have I been doing with my life?  Why am I slacking on posting about the wedding cake?  Honestly?  I’ve been sleeping, and watching a lot of TV, and taking Miss Daisy to the park many, many times.  Yes, I’ve been relaxing, and with Christian being in NH last week, I was busy being a single puppy parent, which – let me tell YOU – isn’t easy.  I cannot even imagine what being a single human baby parent must be like.  At least a puppy I can leave home alone and lock up when I need to get things done. I think putting a baby human in a cage is frowned upon…And I’m pretty sure leaving one home alone is neglect and/or abandonment…either way, puppy = way easier than baby.  I get it mother.  No worries.  (That statement was legitimately for my mother.)  And then this week, between entertaining my little monster and entertaining Daisy (I so funny), it has taken me all week to complete this post!  But I digress…Back to the point:  THE WEDDING CAKE!
