Why I Was Gone So Long

I’ve been doing a lot this past 6 months. I have a dream of opening a bakery one day. I decided that I would work on that dream. I am going to start an online bakery, next year.


For the past 6 months I have been baking like crazy. Mainly cupcakes, but as time goes on, I have tried new things like decorated cookies and mini pies. I have always loved to bake and thought…why not do something I love ALL the time? So here are a few cupcakes I have been working on:

banana peanut butter

Banana Cupcake/Peanut Butter Frosting


Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cupcake/Chocolate Frosting

french toast

French Toast Cupcake/Maple Frosting

red velvet

Red Velvet Cupcake/Cream Cheese Frosting

These were all sent to friends who agreed to test them for me. For taste, packaging, presentation upon arrival, etc. I still have a lot of work to do, but with each new batch, I am learning new things, especially about how to package them to arrive looking as close to how they left as possible. I think we are getting closer. It’s very exciting and a little scary too.

I’ll be opening the bakery after we move next year. I would love to move before Bubs starts kindergarten so he is settled in one school and doesn’t have to switch. I think that’s very important, at least to me it was when I was little. We moved a few times and I was always scared I would have to leave my friends. So I am waiting until we move to start this adventure.
