{Philosophy Shampoo, Shower gel and Bubble Bath – Sweet Fluffy Cupcake}

It may sound cliched but cupcakes are what got me in to my undying love for baking sweet treats. I didn’t start with a mediocre fairy cake with pink, runny icing on top. Oh no. I started my baking obsession with the Hummingbird Bakery cupcakes from London, England.

I visited the bakery once and got two things (yes it was that good), ever since then I haven’t been able to go back and so of course I jumped at the chance to buy the cookbook to make their yummies at home. I pre-ordered that gold.

The first ones I made were the red velvet (one of the first I tried). My family were in heaven, I could have eaten the dozen and well, I was already planning my execution plan for the classic vanilla cupcakes. I adore cupcakes.

So naturally, I had to adore this product. Bathing in cupcakes couldn’t sound anymore perfect if it tried, right?

This was my oh-so close second to the spiced gingerbread cookie and the only reason it didn’t win was because the gingerbread smelled like caramel and well…

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    I love Starbucks Peppermint mochas! They are Christmas to me – even though I cheated and had one before Dec. 1st.
