favor-“ette”: parchment paper cupcake liners

parchment paper cupcake liners

August 5th, 2014

Much like salt, flour and butter, cupcake liners are something that I always expect to have on-hand at all times. Till I don’t – which I inevitably discover only after all the ingredients are out and ready to go. Fortunately I have a friend who has a seemingly bottomless supply of liners – and will […]

"mini cooks" dessert - cupcake cones!

April 2nd, 2014

I was so excited to be tasked with dessert, to conclude this series with MJ and Joy. And not only because I love to bake, but because I’ve been waiting for just the right time to share this beloved treat with you all. I’ve been making cupcake cones – no joke – for over 20 […]

Are you a clean cook or a messy cook? I’m firmly trenched in the latter. Organized? Check. Precise? Double check. Clean up as I go? Absolutely. Neat? Uhh……. This is especially irksome when making muffins and cupcakes. No matter what tricks I’ve learned – no matter how careful I think I’m being – drips and […]

How adorable are these cupcakes? And guess what – they are super easy. Like, even-your-littlest-helpers-can-do-it easy. They’re also low-fat. Aaaaaand, they can easily be made vegan-friendly.

So I’m back in the cupcake business, big time. I knew that having a little one again would mean my re-entry into the world of classroom treats – I loved baking for the kids’ classes when they were younger, and looked forward to doing it again with Noah. Last year we had one morning a […]

February 6th, 2013

Okay, I’ll admit it – I was ALL OVER this challenge. As an Alt Summit attendee I received an e-mail from Airheads inviting me to create a Valentine-themed craft, using (what else?) Airheads! No stranger to using candy as a decorating tool (thank you, Hello Cupcake!), I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Polka […]

This month has been an especially hectic and busy one – but filled with all good things, so I’m feeling most, most grateful. I’ve taken some time before and after my recent trip to enjoy these sweet and special breaks in the action, and trying hard to just pause and enjoy. Noah turned 4, and […]

Some time in October I began thinking about Noah’s 3rd birthday party – more specifically, “the cake”. Ever since Chelsea turned one I’ve done a themed cake for all of my children’s birthday celebrations. Not surprisingly, “Sesame Street” has been featured at one time or another. Here’s Chelsea’s “Ernie” cake, for her first birthday: so vintage- you know, […]

Chelsea was home a few weeks ago and her visit coincided with a cupcake class taught at one of our favorite bakeries, Butter Lane Cupcakes. Remember Butter Lane? I mentioned them in a post I did a while back about East 7th Street in New York City – this is the place that not only sells delicious, unusual cupcakes […]

I discovered the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook in New York Magazine a few years ago, and finally got myself there last year. I was already a fan of the (BEST!) lobster rolls served up by the Red Hook Lobster Pound, but there seemed to be a number of other interesting places to explore. I’ve been back to […]
