‘Tis the Season: 2012 in Review

2012 has been an incredible year. It’s hard to believe that another holiday season has come and will soon be gone, reminding us that a new year is upon us and new opportunities await. This year, I had the opportunities to accomplish a few of my baking goals. I never would have imagined that I would fall so head-over-heels for cupcake baking, finally enter some baked goods into the local fair, or even just delve even deeper into my baking experiments and dreams. Looking over some of the (Instagram) photos from the past year gives me a very nostalgic feeling and inspires me to push myself even further in 2013.

It was such a treat (no pun intended) to be able to make all of these things. Some of my favourite creations from the year include mocha latte cupcakes, ice cream cone sugar cookies, the results of baking adventures with my sister, flower-inspired pink cupcakes in an array of flavours and shades, and the baseball cookies I baked for my big brother and his awesome baseball team.

My Un-Official Baking Goal List for 2013 includes improving my cake decorating skills (or maybe just gettingĀ cake decorating skills), getting better at documenting my baking adventures with real photos instead of just Instagram photos, developing unique cupcake flavours and combinations, and attempting petit fours.


I hope you all have an incredibly blessed holiday season. ‘Tis the season for family, singing, cuddling, hot cocoa, and (of course) baking!
