Right now it's 12:49am and I'm up baking. It's not surprising to find me up at a late hour baking, though since Little B's arrival I've cut back on the crazy baking hours just a little bit. But for me it's never baking just for the sake of baking because I don't bake for myself. I bake for people I care about...
All of my best creations are recipes I've thought up for friends and families. I came up with the Elvis cupcake for Rachel from Cupcakes Take the Cake.
And pirate monkey cupcakes for my nieces piratical 10th birthday.
Tonight I'm wishing, hoping and crossing my fingers that by the time you read this tomorrow morning I'll have a beautiful monkey bread to share with one of my dear friends on her last day at work tomorrow. She's long been one of my biggest baking champions and I couldn't let her leave without one last treat-to-end-all-treats.
