sheeBAKES. get it? well if you don’t then you don’t know my name is Sheena. and Sheena bakes. =P

anyways. i haven’t updated this blog in about 2 months, and figured i should. it’s not that i haven’t been cooking, or baking, or eating for that matter (i have been doing a lot of all three). and i can’t really say that i’ve been busy, because really i haven’t, i’ve just been lazy. i still haven’t gotten a job, so i’ve had plenty of time to do some baking, and i have decided to sell some baked goods for the holiday season, just so i can earn a pretty penny or two. i’m hoping to get my logo done up by this weekend, and make up a flyer to pass out to get the ball rollin’. i’m still finalizing the list of goodies i’ll be providing, and i will have a finalized list posted on my blog hopefully very soon. so with that said, i’m hoping it won’t be a total disaster, and that people will enjoy what i can offer. i’m not perfect, far from it, but i’m definitely learning.

here are just a few things that i will be selling:


shortbread cookies:

only the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies:

carrot cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting:

here a some a couple things that didn’t make the cut:

Madeleine cookies

these turned out too heavy, with a very bread-y texture, not a light buttery taste to it. i will have to perfect my madeleine’s, but i don’t think they will be selling for quite some time. i definitely aim to perfecting them, because i do love love love madeleine’s, i just know it will take time.

Mexican wedding cakes/Russian tea cookies/Snowballs

whatever you want to call them — these are really nice tea cookies, and around this time of the year, they are very popular, and the ones i did make were not bad at all, but they were not great either.

i’m pretty sure i will be adding one or two more cookies to the list, as well as a cake and a pie — and hopefully by this weekend i can post those as well.

in other news – i finally got what i’ve been dreaming of for so long:

my sister in california sent me my early christmas present / a thank you for helping her out with the baby for a few months. =) i’m happy to say that it has made my life significantly better, and i cannot see myself without one, now that i have experienced how lovely it is. i have yet to buy attachments for it such as the ice cream maker attachment, and the pasta rollers — but am definitely expecting nothing short of awesome from them.

tomorrow i have a big day of baking samples of my goods for my mother to hand out to her friends. gotta get my name out there =) i also plan on testing out a few other recipes to see if they make the cut.

well i hope to get this blog updated more often, perhaps this weekend if i’m not too busy baking (or doing last minute school work). bye bye now, fellow readers.

    Wow, this is so amazing!! Those carrot cupcakes look wonderful–EVERYTHING looks wonderful! i was wondering if you were gonna put cream cheese icing on them, and of course, you are!
    You are such a smart girl–baking samples for your mom’s friends, that fancy doodad for Christmas! Those attachments you’re gonna get sound fabulous! Mmm ice cream and pasta. Haha, congratulations on your new endeavor! I am definitely gonna take advantage of the new business. :p Keep it up, Sheena!
