V-Day cupcakes for some sweet ass coworkers: raspberry vanilla cake filled with homemade raspberry jam, frosted with champagne buttercream. Kind of a berry mimosa type of thing. . . #raspberrychampagne #vday #valentinesday #raspberrycake #raspberryjam #raspberrycupcakes #champagne #raspberry #becauseyum

Cheeseburger cupcakes – one of my favorites ever. The buns were a less-sweetened vanilla cake recipe, with the rest being pretty standard burger/slider ingredients. A fun addition to our annual white trash America (4th of July) party. . . #savoryandsweet #sweetandsavory #cheeseburgercupcakes #cheeseburgers #burgers #sliders #appetizer #bacon #4thofjuly #savorycupcakes #becauseyum

There’s a place in downtown Seattle that makes waffles so amazing that I had to stalk down exactly what they were and how to make them. The verdict: Belgian liege waffles, made with yeast and pearl sugar. I don’t think I can take any other kind of waffle seriously ever again. . . #liegewaffle #waffles #wafflewednesday #pearlsugar #breakfast #brunch #becauseyum

One of my favorite #dairyfree, #glutenfree projects – Aaron’s first birthday after we started dating, he hadn’t had Boston cream pie in years.
