I have been baking a lot of cupcakes lately. I am trying to find that perfect recipe to use for them. Also some of the things I have been making are now are available through Etsy from a new company called Apple Barrel Designs which I mentioned in my last post. I have been using butter cream icing to ice my cakes and cupcakes. I finally got a mixer which makes it a ton easier to bake! I will post the recipe I use I got it off of the Wilton’s website. I am falling in love with the Wilton brand. Seems that everything they have makes baking easier for everyone. With the right tools and patience anyone can do this! I am also going to post some pics of some more products that have been added feel free to go and visit our Etsy Shop and like us on Facebook!
