Operation Cupcake

If you haven't seen the preview for the movie "Julie and Julia" you need to watch it below.

I am so inspired by this movie that I have decided that I am going to start Operation Cupcake. I am committing to baking one new thing each week for the entire summer, minus the week we're on vacation. Two of my students got wind that I was really wanting the book "Hello, Cupcake!" and bought it for me as a going away present.

Between that book and Bakerella I think I already know the items I want to bake. The thing is that I'm not big into eating sweets and Dirk certainly can't eat all of these sweets on his own so I've decided that I'm going to find someone each week who could use some cheering up and surprise them with a baked good surprise. If you know of someone in the Riverside area who is going through a hard time or could use some cheering up send me a message on Facebook ( and I would love to deliver some cheer to their doorstep. I will start this not this coming week but the next week. I would love your help!
