It's our blogiversary!

We started this blog last year in March, after coming to the decision to leave Athens and move to Nafplio with our children to give them a simpler life. We're in the what-sometimes-seems-never-ending-process of opening a cupcake shop in the town. We decided to keep a record of the process for ourselves and future customers! Here are a few pictures from the past year!

We started with the search for a new place to live and lots of recipe testing!

In June we found a new place to live and in July we did a small leaving party for the kids.

By September we were settling in and enjoying the kindness of neighbours and friends.

October brought with it the wedding of Alex's youngest brother and the ensuing challenge of making over 700 hundred cupcakes to treat their guests.

At the end of November we were very excited to be featured in the national daily newspaper TA NÉA.

The last few months I've been finalizing products and recipes and we've been striving to take better photos, that involved all sorts of yumminess.

We've been blogging 'The making of' for over a year now! Where does the time go? I've had a personal blog since 2005, but I can't help but feel a sense of accomplishment with this blog, especially now we are getting closer and closer to our goal of opening our shop and actually getting cupcakes 'from our kitchen to your coffee table'! Thanks everyone for coming along with us and reading about our experience.
