It’s true. I have a bun in the oven. Yes, my very own. This post is probably not a surprise to loved ones, but it may be to my loyal blog readers. So, surprise!
After some thought, I decided I wanted to make this a memorable time — emotionally, spiritually — and well, a flat-out tasty time. Pregnant women need nourishment, right?
I pondered ways I could make this journey touching. Daily journal entries about how I’m feeling and looking? Eh, no thanks. Clay sculpture of my growing belly? No one wants to see that. But then it dawned on me that I could include the baby into my passion for baking. Voila!
We shall begin with peach. The size of the popular fruit marks the approximate dimensions of my little bun. Ah, How Sweet is that?
Each week I plan to journal a short snippet on the highs and lows of the bun and me. The feature will include a unique cupcake concoction (READ: Special of the Week!) that includes a fruit (or vegetable!) that matches the size of our growing baby. Even better, I plan to post fun pictures along the way of this venture in the kitchen. I promise it will get even more interesting say at Week 20?
I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on cupcake flavors. Next in line are fig and lime. I’m licking my fingers already. Oh, wait. Those were Doritos.
