Sweet Indulgences Sunday #37

Happy New Year's Eve!! My mind has been racing with so many things that I want to do in 2012. Of course, I have some personal, organizational, and financial goals that I've set. But, I have many goals for my blog (and other writing ventures) and for my cooking repertoire. I have a few things that I want to perfect this year in the kitchen. The number one thing is the cupcake frosting swirl. I've purchased my tips and will be studying a few blogs to learn the technique.

I'm hoping everyone is enjoying this holiday weekend. I would love to hear your New Year's Eve plans and menus. Also, please feel free to talk about your resolutions for the year. I definitely need your inspiration.

  3. Happy New Year, Kim! I KNOW you can do it with the cupcake frosting swirl!!! My foodie resolution for the year is to work more whole grains into my baking ... switched over to whole grains with pastas & general cooking a couple of years ago ... but have yet to truly tackle that challenge in my baking. Wish me luck!
