Bread Baking Babes Bake…. Cruffins?

If Shakespeare could invent over 1700 new words what is to stop the culinary world from trying their hand at it all?!

And they got very fancy with it, using stamps, and other kitchen tools. More about that later. I was seriously contemplating baking the … Continue reading…
