I devote this blog to my daily domestic adventures in the kitchen, in the garden, in the craftroom, and in my home.
Domestic Adventure No. 1: Valentine's Day
My husband and I aren't really much into Valentine's Day, in the traditional sense. But I will savor any excuse to bake up some sweets and whip up some cute decorations.
My decorations were simple paper hearts with a ribbon pasted between them for hanging.
I baked the Barefoot Contessa's yummy Coconut Cupcakes and decorated each a little differently.
They looked delectable in the cake stand.
This was an excellent recipe, however, next time I think I'll omit the coconut from the batter and only include it in the topping. The flavor of the almond extract overpowers the coconut anyway and it will yield a smoother consistency without the coconut pieces.
