I have been eyeing up this amazing blog for more than just a little while.
Here is a photo of the good baker’s chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel frosting:

Here’s mine:

The recipe even called for homemade caramel, which I failed once and quasi-failed the second time.

    camille…you are such the homemaker…I am really beginning to feel like a failure in that department because you are always trying to bake, and cook new things! anyways, I did however get the williams and sonoma homemade marsh mollows (or however you spell that), and they are amazing..it brings hot coco to a new level!

    I don’t bake well. It is way too precise for me.

    Cooking, though? A little of this? A little of that? I rock.

    “Never, never, never give up.” Those five words seem appropriate for this situation. Never lower your expectations. Soar with the eagles! You CAN do it. We all love growing with you.

    I LOVE that you are trying so many new things. That is so impressive. Kyle is a lucky guy! I know it sounds silly, but practice really does make perfect, or pretty close to it. Wish I was there to take some off your hands. They look yummy!
    By the way, I hope you read my post today and are envious of Kalebs snow shoveling skills!He is a monster with a shovel.

    Too funny. The cliche, “A picture says a thousand words” comes to mind when reading this. Love it. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face.

    Camille, I would send you something to Canada anyday. And I think those are cupcakes amazing. Did you read cupcake lady’s post on the white chocolate ones? When I saw the picture, I think yours looked a lot like your chocolate ones. even the experts have some funny looking cupcakes!

    Your blogs are so wonderful that I forget that I am at work. I hope some day they become a book. The whole world would forget about that fantasy story of the boy with a lightning bolt on his forehead and realize how much more amazing a newly wed has to offer them!
