I think I'm totally baked out, well at least for the next few days:)
I baked almost a week solid, and finally finished on Wednesday, two days before Christmas...I also set an "All-New" record for myself on Wednesday, and baked 23 dozen from 10:30am till 5:30pm...3 different kinds, 3 different batters(Double-batch of Chocolate Chip,Double-batch of Molasses, & Triple-batch Sugar)all with the kids at home...now that's what I call, "SLINGING SOME DOUGH"!!! I'm also pretty excited that for the first time in 5yrs....I wasn't baking on Christmas Eve and delivering goodies to everyone on my list:)...instead I was last minute Christmas shopping with my husband...which was exciting and de-stressing altogether:)
I do hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas, and Santa brought you everything you dreamed of. Much love to you and yours, and I wish you all a Happy New Year:)

Angie Dudley(Bakerella), has been in lots of magazines, a spokesperson for Betty Crocker, but it all started with a little help from Ms.Martha...MARTHA STEWART that is:)...When Martha spotted her blog and saw her cupcake pops, she called and asked her to be on her show, and then it transpired from there:) Her love and passion for baking, is shown in her beautiful photography, which not only inspires, but makes you want to bake~~~just to see if you can do it too:)
If you have never seen her work or blog, check her out at:

.....Oh my!!! Can't believe this little guy is actually 1 year old now. Seems like only yesterday his mommy was that age:)....gosh, I'm getting old:).....well I feel like it anyways, I'm only 34, & haven't went "over-the-hill" yet:)
Ms. Rae called me several months ago, and asked if I could make cupcakes for Little Mr. Clarke's 1st birthday. She said, she only wanted the BEST, for his special day~~~WOW, What an HONOR!!! I honestly don't consider myself the BEST, but I do the BEST I can, and always put lots of LOVE into everything I do....so maybe that's why they always turn out so good?
Rae made the cutest cupcake toppers and wrappers for the cupcakes, which made his day even more special, and that's something they both can look back on, and always cherish the memories that they made:)
Happy 1st Birthday to Little Mr. Clarke. I know you had a wonderful day with family and friends. Thanks Rae, I love you girlie & miss you too:)

.....my friend, Ms.Rhonda Wood, who works so diligently with FIC, asked me to help them out for their Autumn Street Fair booth. I wanted something special, so I could use the colors purple & white, which represent DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS. Cupcake Pops are such a huge hit with everyone, so I decided I would make these for them. I made over 100 after I got home from the WCHS Homecoming ballgame, and donated them to FIC to sell and raise money for such a great cause. They raised over $255 with my CupcakePops!!! WAY TO GO GIRLS:).....and a big Thanks to everyone who went out and supported them at the street fair:)
