I am not a true baker I am learning how to bake and having fun at it. I made mama's brownies I love chocolate. I just learned how to make buttercream frosting and how to pipe icing on cupcakes. I learned on You Tube!! I am still practicing I am getting pretty good at it. I just have to give all my friends my bake goods and icing. Trying to keep my lady figure!
