Butter celebrates! (and champagne cupcakes!)

If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, you might remember I’ve baked from the Butter Baked Goods cookbook a few times.  The first book from Rosie Daykin of Butter Baked Goods in Vancouver features over 100 recipes for classic baked goods.  I made the ‘no fail’ marshmallows, gorgeous pumpkin chocolate chip blondies […]
