My chocolate cupcakes...

Okay, so I have to talk about my chocolate cupcakes. They are that super-moist, heaven-in-your-mouth cupcake that you can't just eat one of...and they go perfectly with a tall glass of milk! I'm pretty sure that, similar to my staple Gucci bowler bag, I'll never steer away from the recipe I use. A couple of key ingredients that make this recipe perfect: hot water and....BUTTERMILK! The source of this recipe is Erin Bolger..aka "The Happy Baker." Her recipes are fabulous, and I swear by them!

A helpful hint - make sure your ingredients are at room temperature to get the perfect consistency in your cupcake batter :)

Here's a peek at some cupcakes I've made with her famous "My mom didn't like you anyway" cupcake recipe:

My 1st blog...

My name is Slim and I have a problem...

I am OBSESSED with baking.  Yes, obsessed.  I am not kidding.  It's basically taken over my life.  Well, sort of :)  I am also equally obsessed with my gucci bag but I am not about to start buying a sewing machine, hiring a cute little italian man to handstich leather on an imported authentic GG allover print into a fabulous handbag.  BUT baking - well that's a little more doable.  All you need is butter (lots of butter), sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, and milk.  That's it!  Can you believe it?  And those 6 wonderful ingredients create the most lovely, girlie, wonderfully delicious cupcakes.  Cupcakes are my thing.  And cookies...but mostly because I can eat them 4-6 at a time, bribe people with them, take the to work to look like a star, and most of all add chocolate because chocolate is really the secret of a long and prosperous life in case you were not aware.

ok that's it for now people (or my fan base of 2 at least).  stay tuned for the saga that is my secret life of being a baker.
