Repurposed Glassware – – a la cuppie cake!

I have this un-natural attraction to cupcakes. They are almost too cute to eat. I’m not a big frosting fan, so I prefer to go right for the cake, itself.

I’m very particular about my cake. I like it very moist and semi-dense.  The only cakes, off the top of my head, that I make from scratch, would be banana, zucchini, and carrot.  (I really need a good carrot cake recipe.)

I’m part of that crowd of Brides who Bake the Cake.  If I had to do it all, again, though, I’d make some masterpiece cuppie cake tower, and fill it with little bites of goodness. (And probably get more sleep.)

The reason I like my own cake, the most, is the same reason that knowing how to cook, and being somewhat talented, in the kitchen, has ruined me for restaurant’s.  Its really about taste, more than money.  I’ve seen some really great wedding cakes.  I have not tasted very many, however, that were worth eating.

My baker’s hint, for you, today, is Duncan Hines is your friend.  Drop the oven temperature to 325.  Watch it, carefully, towards the end.  You want to remove it as soon as its done.  I tap it, gently, with my hand, after there is no jiggle, in the center.  I take it out, when the cake gently bounces back. Do not cut it until it has completely cooled.   Oh, and Spice is my Favorite Flavor. :)

Now, the purpose for this post..  I love dishes.  I love free dishes. I love cheap dishes. I love thrift store dishes.  Look at these wonderful and inspiring ideas:

and terracotta! Oh joy!
