This week was full of little yet amazing (to me) accomplishments but nothing took the cake like making my first batch of cupcakes from scratch. I've been a store-bought cake mix kind of girl my whole life and frankly, baking terrified me to no end.
As you can tell from the photo, I made a mess by using more bowls than I ever really needed. I even thought that "self raising flour" was a substitute for baking powder! Whoops. Joe, of course, had a good laugh but he eventually came to my rescue by acting as my human mixer. The results were de.li.cious!
Here's to trying new things this weekend! Have a good one!
