Fun Stuffs

Tina and I agree to make this fun for all. The only governing rule we hold to here is FRIENDSHIP, upholding the basic principles of good, acceptable behavior amongst true and sincere friends! 

There're several things to point out to get this thing rolling:

  • For a start, we will bake from Martha Stewart's CUPCAKES book. While we do not require every member to own this book, it certainly will be very very helpful to have it handy for your own reference. We will be baking from other well-known books, baking book authors and great recipes as well in future, but, baby-steps first!
  • We do, however, require that each member has their own blog to post and share the experiences from their bakes as we go along. If you do not have a blog, now may be a great time to start. Here're the link to blogger, but there're many other free blog services out there that are equally good (WordPressTypepad, etc)
  • There will be recipe rotation. If it's your turn to host, i.e select the recipe for the week, you will need to bake from the recipe you've selected then share the results on your blog. The rest of the members will just bake along and share the results on their blogs, or may choose to skip that week. We understand everyone has hectic schedules and sometimes, conflicting priorities; you can skip certain weeks but we do require that at minimum, you bake along at least once in any given calendar month, for example, there're 4 weekends in February and if you skipped weeks 1-3, you need to bake in week 4). We appreciate your active participation to make this a success!
  • We bake during the weekends and all posts must be up by end-of the work-week, i.e end-of-day Friday.
  • We all don't want to put on weight from this so please feel free to reduce the recipe portions; we will post some Q&A and helpful tips prior to each bake.
