New Venture?!

So I've had this crazy idea for awhile now, but recently it has re-entered my mind and I'm really excited about it. I love baking, I mean, really love it. When I get stressed, I bake. I remember one night, a long time ago, just baking away in the kitchen one night and ended up making DOZENS of chocolate chip cookies. My co-workers were happy though since I showed up at work the next morning with a giant basket literally filled with cookies. So, I was thinking, I want to start a bakery. Mostly cupcakes, with maybe a few cookies, brownies, or various breakfast things (muffins, cinnamon rolls, whatever moves me). Probably just a few everyday flavors, like chocolate, carrot cake, red velvet, and vanilla, and then one or two seasonal varieties. I like cupcakes because they're portable, easy to decorate, and easy to bake. But, if people like them, I can easily turn my recipe into a cake and go from there. Ryan has always wanted to open a coffee shop, so I think this would be an excellent combination for a business. Hence, the breakfast pastries, for those commuters who want a quick, and yummy, breakfast and coffee on their way into work.

So yeah, that's what's on my mind recently. I still have my love for all things girly, so I'll still keep up with that. Heck, if I ever open a shop, I'll have to sell my stuff there too! Nothing like multi-tasking, right?! ;) Anyway, I'm going to be creating some new recipes here soon, some of which will hopefully be gluten- and/or sugar-free. Gotta make sure to reach everyone, right?! Get ready friends, because I'll need lots of taste testers. Hehe!!
