Springtime In Paris

May 2, 2014

So a couple weeks ago was probably one of the busiest and most stressful weeks of my life; even more so than when I was in college and working full time. I mean, it really tested my ability to work on minimal sleep.

Oh How Pretty You Are, Buttercream!

May 3, 2013

So here’s the thing about buttercream: it’s delicious. I grew up stealing finger-fulls of the stuff whenever my Mom was baking, and it was the most amazing thing ever. Frosting in general is pretty darn good in every form you can think of, from ganache and fudge frostings, to royal icing, buttercream, and beyond! My […]
