I made these cupcakes as part of a trifecta for a holiday luncheon at work.  I was in the hospital about a week later, so I’m just getting around to posting these recipes! Recipe for this under the cut.  These turned out really great - small, but great.  It’d be a great recipe for mini cupcakes.  You’d definitely get more than 12!

Cherry Limeade Cupcakes

Summer has been hanging on around here with a vengeance - the majority of these past couple of weeks has been well into the 90s (In September! The nerve!), so it hasn’t quite hit me that it’s fall yet, as much as I’d like it to be. So, to give summer one last hurrah, and to kill some time on a Sunday where I found myself left to my own devices, I decided to make a cupcake based on one of my favorite beverages, cherry limeade!

These cupcakes turned out fantastic, at least according to my coworkers, who are my guinea pigs for cupcake recipes.  The lime curd filling did turn out a little more tart than I expected, so you may want to decrease the amount of lime juice or increase the sugar added to the recipe. Recipe and instructions under the cut!

Hey everyone! Because having a personal blog and an art blog wasn’t enough, I created a blog solely for my baking adventures and also to create kind of an online recipe book for myself to get a little more organized. I won’t be reblogging these items to my main blog, so if you want to see delicious baked goods, go ahead and give it a follow!

Banana split cupcakes I made for my coworkers. Banana cake, fresh strawberry filling, chocolate ganache, and vanilla buttercream topped with nuts, sprinkles, and a cherry!

I am seriously contemplating starting a blog to chronicle my adventures in baking/keep recipes handy for future use.

Hey everyone I am going to start a baking tumblr but I need help with a name because I am horribly uncreative as is evidenced by my main tumblr username.  so help please??

Banana cupcakes with pecans & cinnamon mixed in, maple syrup buttercream.
I want to start including the recipes I use so I can have a bit of an online cookbook - should I make a new blog for that?
Rainbow cupcakes! Success!
My dad likes to give me challenges for cakes. This month’s challenge was a flag cake for the 4th of July. With the aid of my trusty sidekick, Google, I can count this as a success!
  • German chocolate cake may actually be the hardest thing to make from scratch

A timeline of me making cookies

  • oh man, I really want some cookie dough
  • I have all the ingredients, I should just make cookies
  • Man this dough is delicious
  • I should probably bake some of this
  • Even though I like the dough better than the final product
  • First batch: burned 
  • Oops
  • Second-Fourth batch: good
  • WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG
  • UGGGGH THIS IS WHY I NEVER BAKE COOKIES
  • THEY TAKE TOO DAMN LONG
  • Fifth batch: burned
