Just heard that I'm one of the finalists in the baking contest I entered. The pessimist in me is thinking that they only had a couple entries to choose from, but who cares!!! I'm a finalist. Woo hoo! Check out the prizes. Sarah R. just gave up coffee but said that if I win something she'd come over an have a cup with me!

TheKitchn's bittersweet recipe contest this week - made the brownie recipe off the back of the King Arthur Flour bag but added cocoa nibs - my new favorite ingredient. More photos can be found here.

Contractors promise it's a 4-6 week job, max, but I tend not to believe them.
So, no cakes for while, but that doesn't mean no cupcakes!!!!

I was hired by someone in Long Island to make Elmo cupcakes (see post below) and she also wanted a birthday cake featuring purple and butterflies. I had so much fun making this cake - the butterflies were my little pets for a couple of days - I was sad to see them go! The cake was a layer of chocolate and vanilla, with a whipped cream ganache filling, icing was vanilla buttercream. Doug took the photos.
sprinkles? I told you I've been using them a lot! Below is Gus going after the cupcakes. After his first birthday he wants MORE!
Surfas and you'll see them a lot!
