I wasn't able to post yesterday but I did make one cupcake, and today I made two. This morning I had trouble with the raspberry one.. it took two hours to bake which I don't think was right and it separated a little at the end when you ate it. I could tell that was going to be a hard but at least I got it over with.

4 Down...

4 down, 60 to go.

I made 3 cupcakes today. The one I made this morning, looking back, it feels like that wasn't today. It's been a long day but in two days I was able to bake 4 cupcakes, and at this rate I'll make good timing. The three I made (in order of the pictures shown) were Pistachio Raspberry, Ginger Molasses, and Coconut. I ate them all but I personally did not like the ginger one, maybe because I don't like ginger. The other two were very good. I guess you just really have to like the ingredients in the cupcake to be able to eat the cupcake and like it.

And So it Begins

Day one of baking and my quest has officially begun. I've decided to only bake the first part of the book (any day cupcakes) because to do the whole thing would take forever and I only have 3 months. So I baked the first cupcake today, "Iced Pistachio Cupcake".  
Earlier in the day I went to the supermarket and spent nearly 100 dollars on ingredients for the week, I plan on baking 13 cupcakes this week, and I didn't even get all the ingredients I need! I can tell I'll be very busy this week. Let me just say I've only made one cupcake and it's exhausting. I didn't realize it, all the standing and waiting is tireing, but it's worth it. The cupcake was delicious. Here is a picture.
