Bacon Cupcakes & Audrey!

Maple Bacon Cupcakes

So before I moved to Canada I couldn’t bake a cake, especially from scratch, to save my life.  But with having time, and being able to relax I’ve found my love of baking.  When I bake something new I usually post the pictures up on Facebook so my family can see what I’ve been up to.  […]

Just a little somethin’

ChristmasRedVelvets

We had a friend over for dinner the other night and he was telling us how he had to go to make 3 different stops on Christmas for dinner.  And while he was explaining this to my husband and I all I could do was think I was glad it wasn’t me in this situation.   My […]

UbiKids Christmas Bash

Vanilla Minis

Sunday was the end to my baking for the weekend.  I received an order from Ubisoft Toronto to make 200 mini chocolate and vanilla cupcakes decorated with a Christmas theme for their yearly UbiKids Christmas Bash.  I decided to keep it simple for decorations and purchased some holiday candies and christmas themed jimmies.  At first 200 mini cupcakes seemed daunting, but […]

Marble Arsenal

Birthday Song

Mic Cupcakes

My stylist, Corinne recently asked me to make goodies for her birthday party.  After sitting in her chair getting my hair done for the past 2 years I’ve discovered that she’s also goes by the name Cori Green and is perusing her love of music and laying down track in the studio.  So not only is she a master with a flat-iron, […]
