Today, I baked Coconut Cupcakes
by Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten)
as a test run to see how it would turn out in a commercial oven.


Now to baking...
Check out the huge mixer and paddle used to mix the
cupcake batter...nothing like my small kitchenaid mixer.

Batter is ready to be transferred to cupcake liners.



Off to the oven to bake...


Today was a success. A good day.

For that I am grateful. :)



Peace in baking,

Carmen
