Vanilla… I almost always use more than a recipe calls for.

The internet... Blogs have been my greatest source of recipes and inspiration.
Do you have a blog? If so what is the URL?
Not yet... Haven’t had the time that it takes to really blog.

We’re back to my cookies... My own recipe for chocolate chip cookies… it’s a secret… but I share it... LOL
What will you be baking for Cupcake Camp?
Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting… and Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream... It is my first time at camp so I thought I would stay classic.
