I Totally Forgot

... how MUCH i love baking!  I adore everything about baking; using my mixer, cracking the eggs on the bowl, licking the batter from the bottom of the bowl, and then hearing the beeper go off only to pull out a beautifully puffed tray of cupcakes or cookies.  Yeah, i told you, I love baking.  Now, don't get this confused with cooking.  I wish I was the cook my mother and some of my friends are.  I envy how good of a cook my sister-in-law is and they are always trying new recipes... I'll stick with making my Grams' lasagna (which I seem to be pretty good at) and cesar salad.

The whole time I was pregnant I couldn't even think about most food, much less make it, without getting sick.  My poor kitchen hardly got used for it's first few months of new life.  So needless to say it's been a while since I've been able to bake. 

But the Amazing Anna made a pumpkin cake the other day and I was instantly inspired to bake something for the Halloween holiday.  So I figured I'd make some devil's food cupcakes with orange icing to be in the spirit!
And if you were wondering...yes, they taste amazing!!!
