Quick Breads:



Like I have mentioned before, I’m not the best rolled, cut out cookie baker. I’m hoping it’s because I don’t make them very much. But if you are looking for Decorated Cookie ideas, then Sweet Sugar Belle is the place you want to go. And she just shared her tips on Baking the Perfect Sugar Cookie!  Amazing!! See what I mean…


Although you may not think of preparing your cupcakes ahead, they actually freeze really well. You can freeze the batter as well as the cupcakes after you bake them.

Freezing Cupcakes:

  • Place cake batter in a resealable container and plastic resealable bag and seal tightly
  • Place cupcake liners in pan, fill with batter, wrap in plastic and flash freeze {2-3 hours} remove from freezer and place cupcakes in a resealable bag. Place back in freezer
  • Place cake batter in disposable cupcake pans to freeze. Remove from freezer, let thaw and bake in pan.
  • Batter can be frozen up to 3 months if wrapped tightly
