I made white bread! It’s not the best loaf I’ve ever seen, but I think it’s a really solid first try.
For my birthday, I made a tres leches cake using Alton Brown’s recipe. I added a little spice and made a fruit compote topping. I was very pleased with my birthday cake!
Summer is a quiet time crafts-wise for me, and leads to quiet blog, as well. But I did get some baking done!
This piña colada cupcake fills me with joy every time I see it. Bakingdom, the blog that it’s from, is a great cupcake resource, and everything Darla makes is adorable.

My friend Sonia was here visiting, and we decided to attempt to make these cookies. “How hard could it be?”, we thought. Turns out, when you’re us, everything can go wrong!
