I also like to give you things.

  1. I love all of the things that you’ve showed us how to do, because every time I make something that you’ve posted here, I’m declared “the world’s best cooker” by my children and a “horrible, evil, most amazing baker ever for bringing that awesomeness into the office” by my coworkers. I can’t wait to hear what epithets are hurled at me for delivering little jars of vanilla extract goodness to my family and friends for Christmas – so thanks for being fabulous! :)

  2. Thanks to you I frosted my very first cake nearly a year ago now :) Indeed one of the skills anyone should have, especially if the cake has a delicious butterscotch filling… haha
