New Year is a time for looking over our shoulders and contemplating the year that has gone and making plans for the new year that is beginning. This time last year I have barely even heard of a Blog, let alone contemplated writing or publishing one. And when I did, I had no idea that anyone else would be interested in looking at it.
I started my blog when one of my friends told me about her favourite cake that I had made, a chocolate cupcake as it happens. Do you know, I couldn't even remember making the cake never mind maybe recalling what recipe I had used and I realised I needed to keep a record. So in April last year, my Web Log, Adventures in Sugarland took its first tentative steps into the blogosphere and by the end of this year has had almost 10,000 visitors. For me that is quite a serious WOW! A big thank you to all those of you who have popped by to share my journey.
In the best Blogosphere tradition, in reverse order (what else) here are your top 10 posts from 2012.
Number 10. Pina Colada Cupcake
Number 8. Hope-Lace Romantic Brownies
Number 7. Pink Peppermint Cupcakes
Number 6. Old Rose Cookies
Number 5. Lavender Chrysanthemum Cookies

Number 2. Dark Chocolate Rose Cake

Publishing a blog involves a lot of work and more than a little luck, so I thought I would share with you a few of my cakes and cookies that didn't quite go according to plan, or I just couldn't take (enough) successful photos.
