A Year in Review

In the last year, I've baked a lot. Like an unhealthy, slightly-embarrassing-to-admit, a lot. So I figured I'd make a system to document and display my productions, since I'm already putting a lot of time, energy, and just overall thought into it.
I really got into this black hole of deliciousness my sophomore year, while I was living in a dorm room equipped with a 45 sq.ft. kitchen and the bare minimal of kitchen supplies. I was forced to make everything by hand and I usually had to improvise, and it was super fun
So I didn't stop.
Since then, my collection of baking equipment has expanded enormously, especially when I learned that some things are really cheap (whisks and candy thermometers) and that baking gear makes awesome gift ideas for people (rolling pin, mixers). 
First rule: Bake with love. (Like, you know, feel good things towards what you're making, hope its short life is delicious and doesn't end in the trash. Or think lovely thoughts towards the person you're making it for, cause sharing food is the best.)

Here's some stuff I've made this passed year:

Chocolate Salted Caramel Pecan Pie
Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes
Earl Grey Tea White Chocolate Cake
Chocolate Flower Cupcakes
Chocolate Layer Birthday cake
Chocolate Strawberries and Cream Cake
