I started baking pretty regularly around Christmas and now I can’t stop! I don’t get it. I’ve always loved making (but mostly frosting) cakes.

When I was young, it didn’t matter if the cake was from scratch or from a box so long as I got to mix a bunch of frosting colors and get to it. Sometimes in my Art School painting class, I thought longingly of days when painting was delicious instead of insanely hard and tedious. I am a horrible painter.

and a super awesome Invader Zim that I somehow failed to take a picture of. Frosting cakes was something I enjoyed immensely and everyone loves eating cakes. I kind of fell out of the habit until recently though. I’m like that. I do something for a while, get bored with it, move on, and eventually rediscover how awesome it was. My attention span is very low. I did have some sporadic fun with my boyfriend Ernie’s 26th birthday, image

I’ve been exploding with baked goods lately! And no more boxed cakes for me. I love baking things from scratch. It makes me feel like even when I’m eating junkfood, I’m still eating for reals food.

I’ve been considering opening a mail order bakery. A certain amount of money would guarantee a certain amount of baked goods per month. I haven’t worked out all the details though because I’m not sure if anyone would actually be interested in such an awesome thing. If you ARE imterested, by all means leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail. Judging by the amount of spam I’ve been getting since I opened this account, I’m pretty sure my e-mail address is somewhere on this site. If you need anymore proof of my baking skillz, I will leave you with my resume.


Baby carrot cakes


Heart-shaped almond poppyseed loaf, anyone?


How about some swirly sugar cookies? I also make a mean chocolate chunk cookie but those aren’t cute so I generally don’t take pictures of them
