"My kitchen skills are not great, but I am good at following a simple recipe. Dessert is my favorite because it always completes the meal."

"We used the dulce de leche on the top as well as inside to make the cupcakes more decorative, and decided to use chocolate shavings instead of regular sprinkles."
