"If cooking is an art, baking is a science..."

This quote is so true!  Not everyone is born to be a baker.  I know numbers of amazing cooks, who could not bake.  Baking is harder than cooking, in my opinion.  Measurement is the KEY!

I am going to share one of my all time favorite recipes with you.  This recipe is also a very good cupcake recipe for summer party.  I hope you enjoy getting your hands dirty.

Don't want to do the dirty work, but want to enjoy the result.  Send me an email or leave me a comment to order some.  It's just a click away and you could enjoy these cupcakes.
