Over Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend my younger brother got married! It was a beautiful day and they were all smiles. I was so excited, and overwhelmed when they asked me to do the dessert bar. For the reception I did mini-cupcakes, cookies galor and squares. Sooo Yummmy!
Thank you to Dennis and Chelsea for letting me experiment with my cupcake display.

I've spent a lot of time this past summer getting organized. I also had an unmentionable amount of help from my family and friends - you know who you are!
One such occasion was a little "photo shoot" we had in my home. It involved dressing up my nieces and nephews and taking pictures of them eating up my cookies and cupcakes. They had so much fun! It was neat to see them interact with the camera and to find out how they just shined. I am forever grateful to my sisters-in-law for bringing their children, dressing them up and then letting me fill them full of sugar! My, oh my, they were wired after leaving my house!
So... I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite pictures and my niece, Peyton. She is 5 years old, full of life and her smile and giggles light up any room. She was at the center of our little photo shoot; she's the oldest, you see. The picture placed as my header says it all! Notice that smile. Can you tell her favorite color is pink?
Special thanks to my friend JOCELYN for taking the time to come and take the photos for me. She was able to capture exactly what I was looking for. I will introduce the others at a future date. Trust me you will love them all!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

A couple of years ago I had this great idea to start a baking business and now I'm here! It took me some time to finally hash out what I wanted to focus on. And the name! Thank you to all those who helped me brianstorm. I started this blog to keep my fans posted on my baking adventures, and to keep you in loop on my progress as I grow my business.
The idea first came to me when my husband Cory and I took a trip to Toronto to visit some of his family. Cory's aunt wanted to check out this cupcake shop she had heard about. So off we went to discover these cute little cupcakes. So pretty, so dainty, so pricey! I couldn't believe the cost of those suckers! From then on I've thought: "If they can do it... so can I!!!"
I have always loved to bake. While growing up, my mom gave me the tools I needed and allowed me to experiment. I got the confidence I needed from my siblings and my dad as they would always come a run'n when the timer went off and something hot was coming out of the oven. I still get that - my husband is now included.
So, thank you to my husband and all my family and friends for the encouragement, support and praise I needed to make this a reality. You are my biggest FANS!!!
