All of these recipes are developed and tested in my home kitchen. Many are written with beginning bakers in mind.

Did you know I started as a box mix baker? I didn’t start baking from scratch seriously until after college! Learning how to bake has been a lot of trial and error. I write these recipes to try and help you have success every time!

Cakes and cupcakes evoke strong memories for many of us, so it’s always worth trying a few recipes to find the one that fits your personal preferences!

I share lots of options for variations in flavor when appropriate, and try to keep each recipe approachable for bakers at any level.

Life is sweetest when we celebrate the small moments, darlings, and I hope the recipes in this category will inspire a celebration of your own!
