It’s A Party!

G’day eaters!

Today is a pretty special day in the ‘Baby world.

Any guesses what it is?

Oh come on eaters, how could you have forgotten?!?!

Oh right, because I actually forgot until a couple of days ago. And really, that’s about as bad as forgetting my own birthday.

Any guesses?

Today is FoodBaby’s 2nd birthday!

Can you believe it?!

I certainly can’t. Somehow FBB has been a part of my life for two years! More importantly, this wonderful little blogosphere, and all the wonderful ladies and gents that make it up, have been part of my life for two years.

Honestly, I couldn’t be happier.

This year has brought a lot to FBB.

The beginning and end of PT.

I finally introduced you to manly friend. Oh, and to his roommate Will. And then I subjected you to mountain food.

I baked a lot of desserts that you all seemed to like. Including my absolute favorite treats that I so need to make again — Beyond Bitchtastic Brownies and Platonic S’mores Cupcakes. And I conquered a fear of mine — pie crust — in a tiny, air condition-less apartment in July.

And some healthy things, too.

I moved to London for the semester.

Oh, and I wrote my first ever negative product review.

Yeah, it’s been one hell of a year (and that’s not even half of it). And what better way to celebrate a wonderful whirlwind of a year, than by sharing some cake with the lovely ladies that patiently wait for me to take pictures of their food before eating.

Yes, my friends do look like dessert. Yours don't?

Just down the street from our flat is Hummingbird Bakery, which seems to be the British version of Crumbs.

I went with a classic — chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting — mainly because I loved the frosting color and sprinkles.

Aren't you pretty.

The cupcake wasn’t the greatest.

I snagged a bite of my ‘mate’s raspberry cheesecake brownie.

From bottom to top: brownie, cheesecake, raspberry mouse.

It also wasn’t the greatest.

(Oh, and the girl behind the counter wasn’t that nice either.)

But the company — and the reason for the celebration — couldn’t have been better. So lackluster cupcakes be damned!

Really, the only thing that could have made it better was if you guys could have been there.

Yeah yeah, I’m getting all sappy on you, but it’s true. You guys have made this another great year and without you I would just be talking to myself it wouldn’t be as much fun.

And while I would lovelovelove nothing more than to send you a cupcake, I’m all the way in London so I don’t think that would work.

How about I just eat a cupcake in honor of you. Each of you. That’s the same thing, right?

What do you think, eaters:

What do you want to see more of?

What do you want to see less of?

What’s your go-to cupcake flavor?

G’night eaters! And thanks.
