It’s that time again … this little blog turns 4 today, and as it (and I) have grown and changed, it’s time for a new name.
The name Squirrelly Girl Bakes came to me as I thought about potential bakeshop names. I adore squirrels and all their furry weirdness, and somehow the name just seems perfect for a little bakery tucked into a quite town … somewhere.
I’m no closer to figuring out if and when I might open a shop than I was a year ago, but one thing I know I want is a departure from cupcakes. Sure, I’ll still make them, and share the recipes, but the actual Project behind Cupcake Friday has come to an end. While I’m still learning a lot about baking, I haven’t really learned anything new from toting cupcakes across state lines to share with coworkers.
I’m also continuing to develop new cookie and caramel club recipes for my select monthly club, and I might even stretch into the realm of sharing other baked items of the more savory nature … can we say pizza?
2015 is a big year of change for me. I recently turned 33, will be moving in a couple months, am finalizing a fairly heartbreaking divorce, and doing who knows what else.
But I can promise that when I’m baking, you’ll read about it.
Here’s to this darling little blog turning 4, to getting a new name, and to all of you wonderful readers. You’re great.
[Sidenote: I’m still shifting everything over, but cupcakefridayproject.com will redirect. All my wordpress links will still be CFP, because, well, that’s WP, but you’ll still find everything. I’m also in the process of changing the Facebook page name … that is currently under a 14-day waiting period. Feel free to point out anything else I may have missed!]
