I also took a break from R&D of Shortbreading (Webster's, pay attention..it is totally and officially a real word!) and decided to make something more seasonal. I came across an amazing blog, Sweetapolita, and her fabulous and decadent looking cinnamon buns caught my eye. Let's be honest, what reeled me in was the nod to Cinnabon. Talk about a junior high throw back! Malls, Claire's accessories, jellies...oh lord. Throw. Back. How could I NOT make these??! And anyway, my leggings haven't really been pushed to the limit in a while. So, I whipped up a batch of heavenly cinnamon and pecan cinnamon buns....mmmmmm
I have officially taken my first step towards starting my business. The amazing folks at Business Gateway hosted, among many things, a business start-up seminar which I attended. It was informative but, above all, it was motivational. I am hoping to get a one-on-one with a business advisor before leaving for the Motherland in a few weeks time. The ball is certainly a'rollin'! After all that serious work, I had a friend from California out to visit...I don't think Edinburgh will ever be the same! We had a great time and were able to head up to Pitlochry for some well deserved relaxation and unwinding.
Can you hear the birds chirping?

I've been so busy trying to think up interesting and slightly kooky flavours, that I realised I haven't actually made plain, beautiful, all
Call it Spring Training (in November) and I'm the pitcher. Plus, I'm wearing the apron I made a few weeks ago...so I know this batch will taste extra yummy :)
