It’s Been a Long Time…

Wow! Where has all the time gone? I can’t believe the last time I posted was over a year ago. I guess when you move and start a new job your cupcaking takes a back seat… Well, at least the blogging about my cupcaking took a back seat. I have continued to bake here and there, but I haven’t been good about taking pictures or posting. I am hoping to change that his summer. Even though I will be teaching two classes and trying to get a ton of writing and prep work done for projects this fall, I hope to get back into blogging… Even if it is just some quick pictures. Thanks to everyone who chimed in on Facebook or Twitter about some good new books to bake and blog with. I couldn’t make up my mind and I bought three: Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours , Flo Baker’s The Simple Art of Perfect Baking, and Warren Brown’s United Cakes of America: Recipes Celebrating Every State. I thought since I have lived in quite a few states it might be fun to cook through the places I’ve lived… although, not being a coconut fan could be a problem :-) If anybody has any requests please do send them along!

Anyway, over the last few weeks I have baked a few different things for various end of the year or beginning of the summer gatherings, so I figured I’d at least share one of those in this post. I recently converted my very popular White Chocolate Tart into a bite-size version by using little store-bought made fillo dough shells. This went over pretty well. Here are the before and after pics.

Hopefully I will be speaking to you all again soon. I’m hoping not to make it another year before I post again!

  1. I read this post completely concerning the comparison of latest and earlier technologies, it’s amazing article.

  2. The lesson to be learned from modern technology,
    don’t cheat on your spouse or your government, they will catch you
    eventually. VEGA Fleets are continually mining
    resource domains as they are executing whole scores of resources to
    the VEGA Processing Complex. Hurriedly answers the phone to answer it before you do.

  3. I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen to
    be utilizing? I’m having some minor security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more safe.

    hosting provider at a fair price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

  6. I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented to your

LorrainePhD Welcome to
PhDcupcaker,
my site devoted
to all things
cupcake (and
other sweets)!
 
When I started this blog I was
on my way to earning my PhD
in mathematics education. Since
then, I have earned my PhD and
moved from one B1G Ten school
Michigan State, to another, The University of Nebraska in Lincoln.
Hopefully as an assistant
professor I'll still have some
time for cupcakes.
