How it all started…

In college, especially Freshman year, I really liked the website Stumble Upon, who didn’t ?! Through the website I found the website Ming Makes Cupcakes.

I saved the link on my desktop and then later I pinned it (when pinterest became popular) but you could easily say, I totally forgot about it.

Flash-forward a couple years, and I find myself looking for a cupcake recipe. I was a Senior with a relatively light schedule, and I wanted to make cupcakes for my birthday/lab meeting. Perusing my PinterestΒ I once again came acrossΒ Ming Makes Cupcakes. Not really sure why, but I decided to make Cupcake 1, “Espresso Fudge Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting”.

PEOPLE LOVED IT πŸ™‚

So the next week I made Cupcake 2, “Eton’s Mess Cupcakes Yellow Cake with Cream, Meringue, and Strawberries”

then before I knew it, it was 30 weeks later and I had made all the cupcakes on the website

 

Though the there were no more recipes on theΒ Ming Make CupcakesΒ website, I had a reputation at that point so there was no going back. Therefore, with the help of myΒ Pinterest, I have since then tried to make a new recipe every week.

So stay posted! Next time I will post the remaining 34-133 cupcakes I have made, and starting soon I will have a weekly post dedicated to new cupcake recipes πŸ™‚

 


love always, Arianna the Wandering Pipette
