Did I ever tell you about the time I attempted to make Bakerella’s cupcake bites? Come to think of it, I don’t think I have.
I’m not entirely sure what possessed me to step into my kitchen that day with such grandiose plans. Trust me, that’s not like me at all. Apparently, I’d been bitten by the baking bug.
That’s the only excuse I can come up with. Why else would such an amateur anything want to take on Bakerella’s recipes?
Honestly, to this day I still have no idea.
But I did. And for my first foray into baking, I succeeded.
And it was intoxicating.
It really was too bad that it took me 4 hours, a whole heckuva lot of standing, and an unfortunate timing of Lent for it all to happen.
This event may have been one of the factors behind creating this little blog. (Either that or the fact that I needed a hobby.) And although I have no future plans of recreating the Bakerella wheel anytime soon, the idea of trying something new (and a little daunting) continues to drive me back into the kitchen every single day…(even if i I do run the risk of failing).
If you too are willing to give something a try, Bakerella has a new cookbook coming out soon called Cake Pops. Why not step out of your comfort zone? You’ll be surprised at how well you do.
