About Me

My photo
My favorite memories have all centered around friends and family enjoying a meal together! It might have been a special holiday or a celebration, or it might have been dinner with friends at a great restaurant. I hope you will enjoy some of my favorite recipes and take time to fellowship with those seated at your table. You might make a memory to last forever!

The Perfect White Cupcake

I love cupcakes!  They are like your very own, special little cake that you do not have to share with anyone!  You can make cupcakes out of almost any cake recipe that you would bake in a 9 x 13, Bundt or round cake pan!  You can choose your favorite flavor of cake and top with any kind of frosting or glaze!  Not only can they be personalized, but cupcakes are all the rage right now!  Cupcakes have come a long way from being a "child's dessert"...you can find them at bridal and baby showers, wedding receptions, adult birthday parties and even restaurants are including cupcakes on their dessert menu!  If baking cupcakes for a party, it is so fun to shop for the perfect cupcake paper or foil liner, decorative paper cup to hold your cupcake and picks to add to the top!  I got the pleasure of making cupcakes for my niece's baby shower, with a Hello Kitty theme!  I used my favorite white cake recipe and topped them with a butter cream frosting; using a gel color for the pink icing. There are so many options...the cupcake world is endless!  Have fun and bake some just for the fun of it!
