New Features + 26 Facts

Hi everyone! I thought I’d take a quick break in posting recipes and instead tell you about a few new-ish features of With Sprinkles On Top.

  • There is now a Print Recipe link included in almost every post. Hopefully this will make your lives easier if you ever want to print one of the posts.
  • If you are looking for something specific, be sure to check the master lists of recipes. I’ve made an alphabetical list and a categorical list. There is generally a bit of a lag in updating those lists, so recipes from new posts might not be added right away.
  • Everyone loves frosting, right? I’ve made a list of my favorite icing recipes. Also, is there a difference between the term “frosting” vs “icing”? I use them interchangeably.
  • One of the most common questions I get is, “what is your favorite recipe?” I can’t pick just one. I had a hard time narrowing it down to twenty five. But here are my twenty-five favorite recipes. I’m sure that list will change over time.
  • And now, a question for you: is there anything specific you’d like to see on the site? More cupcakes? Less chocolate? More this? Less that? I get a lot of questions about food photography, so I’ve been thinking about doing a tutorial on that topic (though I am, by no means, an expert!).

And finally, I thought I’d fill out this survey that I originally read on one of my favorite food blogs, Sugar Plum. I always enjoy learning more about the bloggers behind the blogs — and after maintaining this blog for almost 3 years, I thought I’d share more about me. That’s me to the left with my beloved Dunkin Donuts coffee. It’s one of the things I miss most about living in Chicago — and quite honestly, I will always love DD coffee more than the drinks found at fancy pants coffee shops. But anyway, on with the ABCs of Annie.

A. Age: 26. Almost 27. My birthday is on August 21… send presents. ;)

R. Right or left handed: Right
