Have you ever???

A recent conversation with a colleague, regarding recipes and how important it is for a baker to familiarize themselves with the steps when conquering a new technique, got me thinking: Have you ever done something like misread the directions and put the temperature at 400 instead of 300?? What do you do next? Redo the batch or deal with it and eat what you've made? Talk about anger management!! Pin It

Super special cupcakes for a super special occasion!

To celebrate a dear coworker's departure into new frontiers, we made these Buffalo Sabres inspired cupcakes. A dedicated fan of our red velvet with cream cheese cupcakes, she requested them in blue and yellow in honor of the do or die game 5 on Friday night. 
Looks like they were good luck! 
The Sabres and Bruins will be playing game 6 tomorrow!!
