Desperately Seeking Sugar?

It is a gazillion degrees at my house. Give or take a few degrees. Regardless, with all of the birthdays and end of the year stuff going on my oven has been working overtime. In case you are desperately seeking sugar, I know where to direct you.

Breuklyn wanted blueberry cupcakes for her birthday, so I adapted this recipe from Martha. I loved the light and fluffy frosting. yum.yum.yum.

I finally jumped on the Whoopie Pie bandwagon with these Raspberry-Lemon Whoopie Pies. The secret to making the cookies similarly shaped is to trace circles on parchment paper and then fill with the dough piped from a bag...

We all know that I can't ever make perfect circles without cheating a little.

Ah, the genius of Bakerella. She made Paizlee's preschool class very, very happy.

Lemon.lemon.lemon.lemon. Need I say more? Glazed Lemon Pound Cake.

These Pineapple Cupcakes with Toasted Coconut Frosting were the absolute hit of Maddux's Kindergarten luau. I think it may have had something to do with the umbrellas, but I can't be certain.

If you happen to see me walking 14 miles to the store along the side of the road somewhere, it's either because I ran out of flour or I am walking off all the sugar. Either way, happy baking!
