I am now.  Well not me, but whatever I end up naming my alleged baking business.

This past weekend I was asked to make cupcakes for a wedding celebration for a friend.  Four-hundred and eighty mini cupcakes, four batches of icing and 480 chocolate shaped shells later, I had accomplished something I have been dreaming about for years.  I actually made baked goods for a real event (and someone paid me to do it).  Thankfully, my trusty right hand woman made the trip down from Nova to help me.  I hope that she had as much fun as I did.

I got nothing but rave reviews and CANNOT wait to do it again…

One of my favorite and best pals at work is eloping in Tahiti or Bora Bora.  I can’t remember which one, but she’s going to both.  Yes, you can hate her too.  She had her bachelorette party at the bay a couple of weekends ago which meant it was time to bake!

I whipped up some chocolate chip cookies and some lemon vanilla cookies and they were gobbled up by the dozen beautiful ladies at the party.  Unlike other people, I don’t give out my recipes, but she might, so you can stalk her page if you are interested.  The lemon vanilla cookies are so pretty when they come out of the oven and their taste matches their appearance.

What wasn’t eaten were brought home to a very happy fiancé.  Best wishes to the both of you and can’t wait to see pictures from paradise!
