Bake It Pretty Present For You!


It’s Friday, sunny and I’m sipping on iced coffee. All is amazing in the world.

I bought you something.

Yea, YOU! I wasn’t talking about the person behind you.

I figure you’d like a little something to kick start your Spring baking.

I bought you polka cupcake liners and pretty striped ones for all the pink cupcakes that you’ll be making.

Umm…did you know edible glitter existed?! I didn’t until a few days ago. Sprinkle it on top of icing, or mix it in cake batter. Glitter cakes, glitter cupcakes, EVERYTHING glitter.

And for all the limeade, milkshake makin’ you’ll be doing this Spring, I figured you needed some cutesy straws. Duh.

Leave a comment by Sunday at noon. I’ll pick a random winner. Simply answer this question:

“What sort of Spring/Summer dishes are you most looking forward to whipping up?!”



Update: Ann Goodman is our winner! Congrats, Ann!

Her comment:

“I look forward to the middle of summer when we pick wild blueberries in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. There is nothing better than a wild blueberry pie. The blueberries don’t need much assistance to be wonderful β€” just a little sugar, a pinch of salt, a splash of lemon juice and some lemon zest. OMG! I don’t know of anything better.”

    I’m really looking forward to salads with berries and being able to enjoy fresh foods (fruits & veggies) while I’m outside in the sunshine. There’s something about enjoying food in its simple freshness when the sun is smiling down on you that’s just perfect.
