Today, 1 year ago, the Iron Chef Shellie blog was born. I’ve loved sharing my food adventures with you all, and hope we have many more this year. To celebrate I baked some caramel mud cakes…mmmm..

Happy Easter to you all! Sorry I have been very slack with blogging, been very busy this week. These are my easter cupcakes! Now before you judge I’m not much of a cupcake extrodinaire… but i’m going to get there one day! This is probably only the 3rd batch of cupcakes I’ve ever decorated properly!
