Latest cupcake trends
A: Hi, my name is Lori and I’m becoming a Pintrest addict... I mentioned last month, the huge amount of interest in a rapidly growing website called Pintrest. If you are one of the few that have not tried it yet, let me explain. Pintrest is a virtual pinboard or bulletin board. All of your friends as they surf the internet can “pin” cool ideas to that board to be able to find them again later. All that surfing and “pinning” created a searchable site of recipes, craft projects, pictures of landscaping, movie posters and so much more! You can browse by subject or just follow what your friends are “pinning” because you like the same things! Now I would like to see two things; more people on Pintrest and people spending WAY less time on Pintrest. Sound like a conflict? Not really! While it is a great resource, there are too many people that spend hour after hour “pinning” those great ideas and never give them a try. I’m a baker first and foremost but I do love to try new recipes, repurpose stuff around the house and find the perfect way of arranging family pictures on the wall so I try to make myself pick a project that fits into my time schedule and actually turn off the computer, gather my supplies and try out one of those fun looking “pins”. So to sum it all up, if you are already a member of Pintrest anonymous, try out that new cupcake recipe, it might just be great! If you haven’t yet tried it out, visit www.pintrest.com and join, you’ll be amazed at what you’ll find. And no, I do not work for Pintrest, I’m just a fan!
