taking a quick break from your regularly scheduled dessert…


The day I’ll never forget. :)

this makes me happier than cupcakes. :)

    Sally – CONGRATS!! That is seriously so exciting! Your ring is gorgeous! I just love diamonds, they are my secret obsession (secret because I’m not ridiculously rich enough to buy ridiculous amounts of them =)).

    YAAAAY! Congratulations! :) What a beautiful place and a good looking couple. I’m so happy for you!

    Sad story: I was never engaged. It was more like me telling my now husband that he has to marry me… or else. So romantic. 😉


    • Sallyreplied on February 1st, 2013 at 9:27 am

      thank you SO SO much Erin!!! And your story isn’t sad at all. You know what you wanted and went after it 😉

    Sally!!!!! I know I’m a bit late on this (I liked your photo on Instagram last week!) but CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You guys look adorable together, that’s a gorgeous ring, and you look so happy!! I’m SO excited for you. I’ve seen some food bloggers do posts on their weddings and just want to let you know that if you decide to do that, you have an eager audience right here that will be front and center for every post :) In any case, you must dish on what kind of wedding cake you get! Congrats again! :)

      You are the sweetest EVER Erika. Thank you so so much. :) And I will be sure to share some details here and there on my blog. I can’t wait! The cake… will be fabulous. I’m already dreaming about it!

    Oh Sally! After a very busy few weeks, I rewarded myself with a trip to your beautifully delicious blog to see all that I’ve missed since falling in love with the cupcake-flavored puppy chow. I am SO happy for both of you! Heartfelt wishes for a loving, healthy life together. And do you want to know something that tugged at my heartstrings? You got engaged the same day my sweet parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary! I was so tickled to see the magical date. :) Have a sparkly day, Sally!


    • Sallyreplied on February 16th, 2013 at 1:49 pm

      Aww Karen! That is SO sweet of you! Your whole comment made me smile. From you making and loving my cupcake puppy chow to the congrats to the 50th wedding anniversary. I’m lucky to have such a sweet reader. THANK YOU!

    Just found your blog! I’m making your vanilla buttercream frosting for cupcakes and your CCC recipe for a party with 30 ppl next weekend. So thankful I ran across these as they look promising and delicious! Should my hard gold sprinkles hold up well on the icing? My last recipe my other sprinkles bled right in. I live 2 hours south of you in St Mary’s county, Md! :)


    • Sallyreplied on September 13th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      Hey Lisa (my MD neighbor)! I love both recipes you wish to make. Two classics – both favorites. Do not put the sprinkles on top of the frosting until serving. Otherwise they could bleed.

    Hi Sally! I know this is almost a year late, but I was wondering what company made your ring! It is absolutely gorgeous! I also look forward to seeing you in your wedding dress!
