A young and slightly ignorant woman who has always loved baking and cooking, I want to make people happy with food as often as I can. I'm here to whisk away and explore!

52 Cupcakes

I have always admired people who decide to make lengthy and involved New Year's Resolutions...and then stick with them! I am really not a resolution gal myself. I've never made a year long goal January 1st before. But 2013...hey! Why not?
So I had a terrible fantastic idea to make one new cupcake every week this next year. That's 52 cupcake recipes I've never tried. And if I make a dozen each week...that's 624 cupcakes.

That's a lot of cupcakes. I almost changed my mind. BUT! I am trying to be one of those determined people that don't give up in March because their goal is too hard. I'm going to stick with it. Or at least I keep telling myself that in hopes that I'm self prophesying.
I am going to regret this so very very much. It's going to be great. Some of these I have been wanting to try for forever (Peaches and Cream, anyone?) and others I'm really excited and nervous to make (Either of the recipes that include bacon make me a little hesitant). I'm hoping that all of them teach me something, and yet still taste amazing. Ha! Like that will happen. I'm sure that there will be a few mishaps, maybe a break down and maybe a break through. Here's to 2013, and cupcakes!
If anyone else wants to jump in and try doing one cupcake recipe a week, I think it's going to be really fun and it could be even more fun the more people that do it together. Leave a comment, shoot me an email, send a smoke signal, whatever...and I'll create a links page so that readers can see your awesome cupcakes that you try!

I know that somewhere along here one week I'll be sick, travelling, have final exams or SOMEthing that will cause me to get backed up. That being said, I really hope I can manage to get 52 recipes in year done. That would be so exciting!
