Sangria Cupcakes

Hi guys! Happy holidays! So way back in August, I made sangria cupcakes for my mom. She had a girls weekend. They turned out pretty good. I accidentally put grapefruit zest instead of orange. Also, the icing was more liquid than usual because of the wine, so I added cornstarch to thicken it. Here is the recipe I used: http://thefirstyearblog.com/sangria-cupcakes/.

Vanilla cupcakes!

Hey guys!

It’s been a while, I know! So, as you know I’ve taken up baking. So I made Vanilla cupcakes! I used this recipe http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/go-to-vanilla-cupcakes.html?soc=socialsharingpinterest and for the vanilla icing, I used this one http://www.wineandglue.com/2015/06/the-best-vanilla-buttercream-frosting.html, it’s a vanilla buttercream icing. I colored my icing with Americolor food coloring.

I made my first rose icing, the one you see on the cupcake.

So do you guys like to bake? If so, what’s your favorite thing to make? Let me know by commenting on this post! 🙂

Funfetti Cupcakes

Hi guys!

I haven’t done a food post in a very very long time. So update: I recently took up baking and I love it!!! My parents got me a Kitchen Mixer as an early graduation gift this summer. I have purchased various baking items, which I am thinking of posting soon. Two weeks ago, I baked funfetti cupcakes, which I proceeded to decorate them creatively with Americolor gel paste food coloring. The cupcakes were very good. Here’s the link for the cupcakes: http://www.cookingclassy.com/2014/04/funfetti-cupcakes/ . For the icing, I simply separated my icing into four separate bowls and I used the following colors: mauve, egg yellow, mint green and red red.

Teriyaki chicken with vegetables

Hey guys!

I made this recipe about one week ago and I got lots of compliments. The only thing is that I would cut down on the carrots and the ginger. Unless you like carrots and ginger. This recipe is pretty easy.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe! 🙂

Chewy Sugar Cookies!

Hi guys!

I found a new thing to talk about (drum roll please)… Food! I love cooking, especially when I have nothing to do.it’s so much fun. I kind of look silly, mostly because I’m dancing in the kitchen. I can’t cook without music ;). Anyway, last Saturday I got bored and decided to go on Pinterest and look for a sugar cookie recipe. I happened to stumble upon a really good recipe. The cookies turned out great, my dad calls them the best cookies he’s had in a long time. If you want the recipe all you have to do is click on the link below.
