Head over to Let Us Eat Cake if you’d like to see the mini cupcakes I made this week!


mmmmmmini cupcakes!

Today I purchased 2 mini cupcake pans and some adorable striped baking cups!

I’m hoping to have a mini cupcake baking session this week in anticipation of a visit from my first cupcake customer.  Her wedding is in October and she’ll be coming by to taste test chocolate and vanilla cupcakes (aren’t you jealous?).  Hopefully these will be more than satisfactory!

If you are a fan of Radiohead here is something to occupy your time:

Hypertextual Archaeology has great links to some old and random Radiohead goodness… even some poetry/lyrics if you look in the right spots.
