9 Days of #HolidayTeal: Baking Cupcakes

December 16, 2015

What would the holidays be if home did not smell like cookies and cakes? After a long break (live’s been insanely busy lately), I have finally been back to baking cupcakes, my favorite little indulgence! I got into baking a few years back when I admitted my addiction to the amazing cupcakes at Bottega Louie in Downtown LA. I honestly would go there almost daily and then would buy more cupcakes for the weekends! Needless to say, that quickly got pricy, and to save money, I decided to learn to bake myself. So my friend and I bought this Cupcakes recipe book by Shelly Kaldunski, then, of course, baking equipment (so much for saving money!), and I got busy. I ended up baking every single recipe in Kaldunski’s book (my family became the beneficiary of my obsession hehe!!) Anyways, while at first baking was a bit challenging, before I knew, I could pop them out of the oven in no time and enjoy a house filled with that amazing ‘something-baking-in-the-oven’ smell.
