Chocolate cake mix cookies

I don't have much time these days. Moving across the country is no easy task, with all of the logistics to take care of. Plus, I want to hang out with as many of my friends as often as I can before I leave. This weekend was no exception. Lots of fun, but very little time for rest.

Funfetti donut holes

I've got exactly a month before I pack up and haul out to Boston, so my weekends are currently filled to the brim of me trying to do as much as I can and hang out with as many friends as possible.

A month or two back, I participated in Reddit's Arbitrary Day gift exchange. It's basically a giant online Secret Santa exchange, except in the middle of summer (hence, the name Arbitrary Day!). To my delight, I was sent a baking challenge - the Sachertorte.

Chocolate strawberry mochi cupcakes

I'm currently about six weeks out from my big move to Boston. I've bought my one-way ticket, secured my apartment, and am compiling a list of places to eat and things to do for the city. The biggest challenge for me is getting all my stuff across the country. Simply put, I've just collected too many possessions over these last two years in San Francisco - and now I've got to decide what I really want.

Strawberry shortcake cupcakes (4th of July themed!)

Holidays are great. Not just because of the day we get off of work or all the festivities that go on during this time - but the food. And not just eating food! Holidays give me a theme to build my baking inspirations around.

Wilton Method Classes

As I mentioned in my last post, I took a Wilton Method class (their Course 1 Building Buttercream Skills) at my local Michael's and really had fun, so I figured I write up my experiences for this blog post. (I did bake over the weekend for a friend's birthday, but he requested I repeat a previous recipe, so nothing novel to write about).
