Hello, my name is CB. And this is my blog.
I live with my Hubs and our 115lb puppy in a cozy townhouse off the southern coast of California. (Doesn’t that sound fancy?) I’ve been with my husband for almost 12 years but we didn’t actually tie the knot until July 2007. (I needed the health insurance. Hey! At least I’m honest.) Thankfully he loves me and I love him so it all kinda works out. Can I reminisce for a minute? The funniest wedding moment was during the vows when our officiant said “Do you take this woman to be your wife?” and Husband said “I do!”, his father (my FIL) yelled out… “It’s about time!”
I think its pretty obvious that I LOVE LOVE LOVE cupcakes!
My blog is a dedication to my obsession with cupcakes. I started iheartcuppycakes! in Dec 2007 but in a few short months I am overwhelmed with the response! Apparently I am not the only cupcake lover out there huh? While I do not have any professional baking experience (I graduated from the Wilton cake 4 class decorating course though!), I am enjoying my trial-and-error approach as I continue to bake and blog about cupcakes.
I started this blog as a way to keep track of recipes I found online and my own experiences with cupcake baking. The Bad, The Good and the Ugly. You’ll find my success and failures along with my random life thoughts. Trust me. It can get pretty random up in here. Don’t be surprised if I talk about my iPhone more than my husband. I’m all about keeping it real. Oh and… I’m known for breaking out in haiku when you least expect it. Like now.
Me want a cupcake
I will give you a kidney
For a bite of yours
I’m a thirty-something-wondering-where-her-twenty-somethings-went girl that still doesn’t know what she wants be when she grows up. Although I am throwing around the idea of being Vanna White’s understudy. Everyone tells me I have great jazz hands.
I’m still learning the whole food+photography gig. Nine times out of 10, I shoot with my Sony Cybershot DSC-S700 and I’m not above using photo editing programs when I can’t get the lighting just right on my own. (Yeah I said it!) But I’m hoping to “really explore the space” with my Sony A200 DSLR as time goes on. Can I be honest? The thing scares me! So many buttons. F-stop is the inverse of what now? I’m like a man and refuse to read the instruction manual.
Please give credit back to my blog if you use any of my photos or original recipes. Although ingredients are not technically under copyright, my step-by-step instructions are. I retain the rights to them. So I’d appreciate if you don’t C/P my instructions word-for-word. *stern stare* Besides I’m sure your readers would rather read YOUR own step-by-step experience instead. Since they are reading your blog and not mine. (What’s up with that?)
Most people know I’m a CW (comment whore). I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting comments. But let’s wo/man up, mkay? If you’re gonna leave me a rude comment. Don’t be anonymous or use a fake email. That just makes you look more like a a$$hat.
Feel free to email me anytime with comments, questions and/or suggestions! While I heart emails from my readers, SPAM should only come encased in gelatinous goo in a can. Yum! I will try my best to answer all emails in a timely manner. But please remember that I don’t sit at my computer waiting for readers to email me. I do have a life outside of blogging (Really I do!) and sometimes replies can take longer than I intend. Can you believe people actually get mad? Earth to mean people. This is a hobby. I’m not your personal Google search. (Unless I’m you and you’re my BFF, Nikki.)
And t-t-t-that’s all folks.
Smell ya later!
