Golden Gate Bridge

This is one of the bridges that I tried making through Ponoko. I thought they would make cute escort card holders but unfortunately they were too cost prohibitive in the end. We found another cute option that my mom made that I’ll post pictures of at some point. This was also a test of taking…

So you know how all the cupcake recipes you read always tell you to let the cupcakes cool before you frost them? They’re not kidding. I was in a rush to go to a party on Friday and had promised the hostess that I would bake cupcakes. Well, since I was in a rush, I…

Back in the swing of things

Gone for a while getting married but now that that’s done I’ll (hopefully) be doing more. So stay posted–more should be coming soon. (This post is also a test to see how posting from my phone works. As a teaser–and another test–here’s a pic of the burger my man made for me. It was good.)

Cow Tale Cupcakes

So, I really wanted to enter Cupcake Hero and this month’s ingredient is marshmallow. I love marshmallow which should be obvious. I sat and thought long and hard about something fun to make and came up with a few ideas but a lot of them just didn’t sit with me (or I had done them…
