52 Cupcakes & A Little About Me

I love baking. Bread, cupcakes, cakes, cookies. You know, baking. There’s something about the heat of the oven, the scent of the batters, and the taste of sugar that just makes me happy. That might be the chemicals in my brain that those things release that make me feel good but I’m going to go the non-science route and blame the treats! Let’s face it. Calories are plain out delicious!

I’ve working in fast food, a nail salon, Wal-Mart, a hotel, and am currently working in a nursing home. I also run my own side business Knitted Lily Creations on Etsy. I graduated high school in 2010 and will graduated May 11th with an Associate’s Degree of Art and Science with a major in Liberal Arts. My little family includes a boyfriend of three years and a two year old mixed breed puppy. I love art and have two pieces of it on my body.

I’ve got a lot on my plate from life right now and really need a break every once in awhile.  I’ve always loved baking and have been doing it since I can remember with my dad. I love it so much that I eventually want to open my own bakery. This year though my baking has taken a new turn and I’m actually sharing my creations with not only my parents and siblings but my Aunts and Uncles, cousins, and even random strangers who are just having bad days! Baking has always been my passion and now it’s also the break that I need. So I decided to make my break from my busy life an annual deal. I’ve decided to challenge myself for the next year to a new cupcake design every week!

I’m going to be documenting my cupcake challenge, my small business, and everyday life for someone just starting out. I’ll also probably throw around ideas for my future bakery every once in awhile too.

So until I can get that bakery started I’ll just keep dreaming and practicing about it and if you would like to follow along go for it! Comment about your thoughts on the cupcakes, like my fan page on Facebook, or even pin my cupcakes on Pintrest if you want. If you really want to talk to me about something you can even email me at whitelilycupcakes@hotmail.com!

Till next time,
