Best of 2011

It’s that time of year again! Last year I did my Top 10 cupcakes of 2010. This year I’ve picked a bakers dozen of my favorite posts and my best moments of 2011. Counting this post I did 186 posts in 2011 compared to 153 in 2010! That’s a lot of cake!

Thank you everyone for visiting my blog and reading about my crazy dessert ideas. I wouldn’t have enjoyed any of my favorite moments if it weren’t for everyone of you stopping by and reading my blog!

I wish everyone a safe new year and can’t wait and see what 2012 has in store for American Cupcake in London!
