Three years ago I encountered a baking blog that absolutely blew me away. As a lover of all baked goods, with an extra special love of cakes, this little space in the internet was a dream come true. The blog was Sweetapolita, the baker behind it was Rosie Alyea, and, drumroll please, she has just released her very own book, The Sweetapolita Bakebook: 75 Fanciful Cakes, Cookies & More to Make & Decorate. I was lucky enough to receive said book for my birthday this past month and I promise to bake my way through the entire book, starting right at the beginning, with Funfetti Cupcakes. These little cakes of deliciousness were a huge hit and I can’t wait to tackle the next recipe.
