i spent the afternoon in valencia with my mom, mother-in-love & auntie carolyn… we took a cupcake break at velvet. I did not used to be a big cake person. in fact, i’m still not a big frosting-lover, but I feel like cupcakeries are really stepping it up now with the high-quality ingredients & delicious flavor combos. less corn syrup/overly sweet toppings & more flavorful fillings… yes, please!

i’ve even convinced robby now that cupcakes can be delicious if done right. :)

i especially love making my own homemade (& completely organic!) cupcakes from the primrose bakery cookbook. it might just make you a convert too.

xo, anna

p.s. although i’ve hesitantly embraced the cupcake fad, i still think pies are making quite a comeback in the dessert arena. & i wholeheartedly support it! i mean, who doesn’t love a freshly baked, steamy pie from the oven? my favorite dessert of all time just might be homemade blackberry pie.
