Busy Baking!

I've been baking like a mad women this week.
I love it!
I've decided to sign up for a cake decorating class in June and so it has me pumped and I just can't stop baking.

Recently I made these Sweet Lime Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting, minus the 'sweet' part.
They were fantastic!
Probably the best cupcakes I've ever made; They disappeared within two days!
I don't have pictures of the final product :( but I do of the 'in progress' part.
Word of advice: Buttermilk does expire 2 months after it's best before date.  For some reason my mom and I questioned this and she tried a sip of the milk.
It was bad.
 The raspberry frosting was amazing! I consumed mass amounts of it.
 Have I mentioned my mixer and I are engaged?
The cupcakes are so heavy, but quite moist.
Mmm icing.

Wednesday I made cookies and rice crispy squares while listening to dub step music courtesy of The Boy.
Then tonight in a total of 3 hours I made a birthday cake with ganache frosting for my brother, oat bars and oatmeal chocolate chip muffins!
I really want to try making eclairs!
 A donut looking marble cake.
 Oat bars with chocolate and peanut butter.

Other than baking I'm really focusing on exercising and eating healthier.
I bought a bunch of produce, greek yogurt, sugar free jello (even though I'm not a big jello person, it's good for flavoring!), and egg whites. Oh and different kinds of chocolate chips :)
Does anyone else get excited about groceries?
I need some more food options though, or spices.

If anyone eats Quinoa how do you make it?
I eat mine with soya sauce.  But I'm trying to figure out how to make quinoa mac and cheese because I don't eat pasta a whole lot (makes me sluggish) or a curried quinoa.

Have a lovely weekend :)

So glad you liked them!!! Even when buttermilk isn't expired it still tastes funky, kind of like cheesy milk. I learned that the hard way, too haha :)
