Cupcakes & White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
Last week we created our own virtual cupcake bakery, logo and menu. Each SproutChef got nine cupcakes to decorate and name for their cupcake bakery menu. As always, I was blown away by the creativity. The pictures do not do the cupcake creations justice.
