Bake It Pretty Present For You!

in Uncategorized

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 — 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.”

Stuff for the grill! I can’t wait to make steaks and grilled veggies and grilled fruits and then serve them with big huge green salads on my porch 😀

ICE CREAM!! That was me “screaming” for ice cream right there. I love to make ice cream almost as much as I love devouring it. Now that the weather is warmer it will be my go-to dessert :)

I cant wait for fresh summer fruits – fruit salads. Fresh produce from the farmers market – for grilled veggies!
