Tell us a little about yourself
By day, I work for a large non-profit running their blog. By night, I'm out eating or home cooking, blogging every moment of the deliciousness!
What is your favorite type of cupcake?
I'm traditional, vanilla cake with vanilla frosting gets me every time.
If you had to describe yourself as a cupcake, how would you?
Vanilla cake with dulce de leche frosting. Or maybe even a dulce center. I really love dulce.
What is your favorite local cupcake place?
Whisked!, they're at the 14th & U Farmers Market or online. Salted caramel frosting with vanilla cake...ah! Delicious!
What is it about cupcakes that you like?
I like that it's a smaller cake...to be honest. Portion control at it's best!
