too good for words.
Baking. I love it. When I am not baking I am thinking about baking ... from new recipes to try, ingredients, pairings, frosting, muffins, scones etc. Over the past couple of weekends I've baked brunch for friends, mini cupcakes, and scones, scones and scones. So, I couldn't help but be excited when a good friend recently baked for me.
I was leaving work when I heard someone yell "Caroline"!! It was my friend Kim and her little daughter Natasha. They met me at work for hot chocolate and chai. And, the best part of our meet up ... other than our great conversation ... was that Kim brought me a whole box of cake pops (she knew I had never had one). When I opened up the box I found 2 little cupcake pops, 2 pops that looked like apples, a football pop, and 4 dark chocolate and white chocolate pops ... she absolutely spoiled me! And, what it reminded me is that: even though I love baking for others I love when others bake for me (friends are you listening)??!!
Happy Monday Everyone!!
