Hey guys! Tomorrow is New Years Eve!!!! I really can’t believe how fast the year has gone by! Its just like as if yesterday It was the first day of school……Anyways, I needed to make a dessert for New Years Eve and I found this recipe in my new cookbook “1,001 cupcakes, cookies & other temting treats”. BUT, the frosting was my creation. I tried the one in the book but it came out to be a disaster. I was so frustrated, I decided to invent my own recipe for orange Frosting and it worked! My mom, friend, and my moms friends all shared one and they loved it! I can’t wait to have them tomorrow. I’m also thinking about making Chocolate Eclairs tomorrow? Should I or should I not? Now, I am so tired and beat from baking, I’m pratically sleeping as I type this. I’ve already made soo many typing errors in this paragraph its ridiculous, oh well….
1. This has been a roller coaster type of year. The biggest highlight is when I started baking about 4 months ago! I can’t believe how far this has gotten. This blog was thought of by me and my friend Angello. I never would’ve thought that my blog would be this cute and would go soo far! I really can’t wait to see what I bake in 2013. Pies? Flan? ICE CREAM SANDWICHES???? I guess we will both have to wait and see!!!
