. . .and then there was blog.

Welcome! I'd like to introduce you to my blog, The Devil Wears Pastry.

Either you've been linked here by my twitterific sister Michelle of (insert shameless plug here) Mommy Confessions-quite possibly THE Best mom blog on the face of planet earth-which you should visit, since it's everything you've been missing in life-or you've stumbled your way around the web until you found me. Either way, I'm glad you're here.

This blog will be full of my adventures in the kitchen, as a self taught baker, pseudo chef, cake decorating instructor, and general Martha Stewart wannabe. We'll bake, we'll review products, we'll hold recipe contests. . .and we'll most likely make a giant mess of my kitchen and gain a pound or four.

I have to give a whole 'lotta bloggy love to Maggie of Maternal Dementia for helping me to name my blog. After a ton of great entries, a whole lot of debate, and some furious games of rock paper scissors, she came through as the unanimous winner. She is the recipient of a fabulous Brownie Fun prize pack courtesy of myself and the people at Wilton. So please, head on over to Maternal Dementia and check out her awesomeness. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll bookmark it. 

Finally, check back soon and often-there's going to be a whole lot going on around here once I get myself all moved in and the flour settles. 

Something you want to see tested? Recipe you've been searching for? Feel free to contact me at 


  1. Can't wait to see what you post. I love to cook, but baking.... well, it scares me so we'll see what you can convince me to do.

  2. I have a hell of a sweet tooth. Especially since I am pregnant and have taken "eating for two" to a whole new level. I can't wait to read all your recipes and about all the fabulous comfort foods that I can stuff my face with!
    Blessings to you.
    Stopping by from the Mom Blogs via Michelle!
