Just too cool not to share

So, as you know I've signed up for the Cupcake Camp LA and today I saw that I am now on the website list of bakers. There is a little "bio" about me. When registering, you had the opportunity to answer some questions and they would post in a blog for you. So of course the Leo in me had to answer the questions.  

I've got to say, it is so awesome to see my name on the Cupcake Camp website. 

Also did a little baking this weekend for a friend's birthday party.  Chocolate-Spice cupcakes dipped in chocolate ganache. With one special "Princess" cupcake (Ariel) as requested from her hubby.  I had success with the first batch of buttercream frosting for decorating. I think I've finally figured out the key to buttercream.  Frosting really is the hardest part for me.

Still need to do a batch of the pumpkin brown-butter cupcakes... Cupcake Camp is coming up fast!

Save the date for Cupcake Camp Los Angeles

It's official - they have announced the date for Cupcake Camp Los Angeles! Looks like I have plans on Saturday, November 20th. I just officially signed up to participate as a baker.  I'm so excited to be able to do some baking for another worthwhile event.  

Right now, I'm thinking that the pumpkin brown-butter cupcakes are the flavor for this event. I'd like to try out this recipe plus since the event is so close to Thanksgiving it seems like a good way to get into the holiday spirit.

You can check out more information about the event here at the website below.

Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to camp time!
