I'm Back!

Yeah, so it's been, um like 4 months since I've made an appearance here. Sorry about that.

To be honest, I don't really know what I'm doing. And I'm ok with that, hopefully y'all are too.

This whole crazy cupcake business thing started out of a hobby that someone offered to pay me for, and it's continued more in that theme. I'm not looking to be the next big bakery in town. I love that I can do something I love on the side here and there (saying no when I feel too crazy with life) on my terms.

At the same time, there is a lot in our lives we've been doing as well. We're very involved at our church (Emmaus Church), lead a small group, do baseball, and have 3 kids. It's a lot to keep up with, and if I feel like God would rather me focus on all of that than cupcakes...I'm good.

The last few months I haven't been sure if I should keep trying to do CupKates, so I just left everything on cruise. Didn't post blogs, or much on the facebook site. And yet I am still getting calls and orders on a regular basis. It doesn't seem as though it's going to fade out on it it's own, and having 2 kiddos in school at least 3 days a week, I feel like I can manage a fair amount of orders. Plus I absolutely adore getting to meet and interact with all of my customers and helping create something delicious for your special events.

So I'm blogging, because I'm still here and apparently am not going anywhere any time soon.

And in my absence, I've come up with a few new flavors I thought I would share.

Chocolate Chip Cookie cupcake. Just like the cookie, but in cupcake form

Browned Butter cupcakes with Salted Caramel

I'd also love to hear from y'all as far as what you would like to see more of from me. Do you enjoy the random recipes and dinner ideas? Do you just want to see pretty cupcakes? More giveaways? Or really, you don't care and are just going to order cupcakes. That's fine too, just trying to figure out where best to spend my time.

Hopefully I'll be making more regular appearances again!
