|First attempt at a rose cake. Next time I'll make a heavier frosting so the roses will hold better.|
So I got into a blog reading mood this morning and signed onto my blog for the first time in a while--I hadn't updated in A YEAR according to the last post date I saw.
This time last year I had a lot going on (traveling, moving, holidays) so I stopped posting with all intentions to resume blogging in the new year.
Well, the new year came and it didn't happen. Up until February 2012 I kept telling myself that I would do it the next week...and then the next week. But, it didn't happen. I essentially just stopped baking for the year.
Wish I could tell you that I was off doing fabulous things with my time, but I wasn't. Things have been normal and uneventful for me. Working, hanging out, taking little trips here and there and just trying to enjoy my life is all I've been up to. Like this trip with some of my girlfriends to Cape May, NJ in April 2012.

The only big thing this year is that I, of course, got a year older. I turned 26 on September 26, 2012 so it was my Golden Birthday!
|26 years old. Crazy!|
My BFFs came to visit me in DC for the weekend and it was a blast. I was celebrated pretty well. :)
Umm, I was Miss Cleo for Halloween! LOL. My Sammie was a Smurf. :O)
That's pretty much all the updates. I have nothing else to add. :/
That rose cake pictured above is the only major thing I baked this year besides these salted caramel cupcakes that I baked for my birthday.
|Salted Caramel Cupcakes. Recipe here. Frosting is delish!|
The rose cake was for Sammie's birthday party last night. I baked her a chocolate peanut butter cake and it was pretty tasty.
|We ate the cake straight from the plate with forks after dancing the night away. Such classy ladies. ;)|
Well, this is the end of my quick update and hello. I'm going to commit to updating my beloved Sinful Sundays on a more frequent basis. I've missed chatting and talking to you all as well, so I'm excited to start "hanging out" again!
'Til next time. Ciao! :))
