2011: A Very Sweet Year

After 75 posts, I am on my way to the beginning of another year.

This year has proven to be incredibly sweet, as I started this blog 6 months ago. I have posted for CakeSpy numerous times, and have watched my ‘stats’ from time to time as they soared. Next year, 2012, also brings many new obstacles and things to look forward to. By New Year’s Eve next year, I will officially be a graduate of Central Washington University with a Bachelor’s in English as well as a Professional Writing Certificate. I will have finished editing my first novel. I will be contributing to an awesome online dessert magazine called Best Friends For Frosting (go check that out). Most importantly, I will be donating. I have checked resources and networked with many, and now I can say that I will officially be donating most of the baked goods I make for CAKEfyi. Sharing the sweet wealth in 2012!

But, before we get too ahead of ourselves, here’s a look at the the top 20 sweets that I baked this year, as well as others that I ate. I visited a total of 15 bakeries this year, ate three delicious treats at each stop, and wrote about it here for you to enjoy. I revamped numerous recipes, as well as created entirely new treats. The photos below are my absolute favorites.
