Happy New Year!

I just wanted to say Happy New Year to everyone! Hope you have a safe and healthy 2010!

Also, check out some of the new features on my blog. I’ve updated my header with new pictures. I’ve also included links to the recipes for the pictures you see in the header. Just look up on the top left for that list.

In late 2009, I added a listing of some of my favorite seasonal recipes in the right hand column. Be sure to check that out as well.

And the last new feature is a button on the left where you can become a fan of Beantown Baker on Facebook.

I look forward to brining you more tasty treats in 2010! Thanks for reading.

    Those cupcakes look delish! Can you tell me more about the “dipping in ganache” technique? Does the ganache need to be a certain consistency first?

    I have seen some maple cheesecake around the blogs, maybe that would be awesome use for the sugar? Or to top maple sugar cookies 🙂

    I made a seriously awesome maple mousse cake to go with Christmas dinner this year and it used maple sugar. It was one of the best desserts I’ve ever eaten. The link to the post is: http://joanne-eatswellwithothers.blogspot.com/2010/01/frozen-maple-mousse-pie-with-chocolate.html.

    Wow that maple syrup event looks really cool, I wish I had known about it- it looks like they only do it once a year!

    Carly – I dipped the cupcakes in the ganache while it was still very liquidy. I did it a few minutes after making the ganache and then let it set up on the cupcakes. Hope that helps.

    Jen, the maple syrup experience sounds like so much fun and I’ve always wanted to do it! I wonder if it’s too late this year.

    Those cupcakes look so pretty. Can you tell me what kind of liners you’re using? They stay so nice and bright.

    Lila, I get the liners online. Here is the link for the colored ones, and I also get brown liners as well.
