I got a cookbook for Christmas. That one. ^^^ I have officially decided that I am going to systematically, from front to back, bake each and every cupcake in the book. I think I will learn a lot in the process. About new recipes, about cakes from scratch....may get better at the over-all appearance. The idea is that I will eventually have just the right recipes for scrumptious, moist and delectable cupcakes that will make your mouth sing! Sing, I tell you. The kind of cupcake you need to eat with a fork. Slowly. The kind that leaves you feeling entirely satisfied, enough that you don't have to eat two or three. Although you might want to.

I will let you know when I begin. As of now, I'm running a low fever and I don't feel so hot. Anyway - eventually, my neighbors are either going to love me for all of the free treats or hate me and wish I would just throw them out and stop it already. Especially because there are ::gulp:: 46 different recipes in the book. I might combine some into one project. For instance, the vanilla cupcakes are used six different times in the book - just dressed up in different ways. Sneak peeks, please?

  • Lime Meringue Cupcakes
  • Grapefruit and Buttermilk
  • Rosewater and Raspberry
  • Sour Cherry Almond
  • Coconut Lime
  • Mexican Chocolate
  • White Chocolate and Raspberry
Just a few tidbits to come.

P.S. If you'd like to sign up as a taster...I will be more than happy to bring the results over for you to try. Unless they don't turn out. Which is most certainly going to happen along the way.

I'd like to be a taster please. Are there some release forms I need to fill out? Do I have to ::sniff:: be in your ward ::choking sob:: to be a taster? ::running into my bathroom and starting the shower so no one will hear my wailing::

I would love to be a taster, but my next size up is Moo Moo, so I'll have to decline!

Have you come up with a name for your baking business???
