Craving Pretzels...


Of all the snacks, my absolute favorites are popcorn and pretzels. When I lived in the States I was a sucker for Cape Cod White Cheddar Cheese Popcorn but didn’t come across them when I moved here to PR. One day one of my friends told me she saw them at a supermarket in Isla Verde. Of course, next day I had hopped in my car and went to get some. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen them since. I also die for pretzels. Pretzel sticks, pretzels rods, mini-pretzels, you name it. I am not a fan of Wetzel Pretzels or anything like that though. Back home, Super Pretzels was my weakness. After moving to PR, I found them once at a supermarket in Rio Piedras and I bought a box. The one that carried like 36 I think it was. As a matter of fact, that’s how long ago it was that I don’t even remember. That, too, I never found again.

So, I've been wanting to do more decorations in my cupcakes other than a swirl of icing and handmade hand crafted topping (and I don't mean the edible kind). Remember how I said I wanted to be Duff? I tried my hand at fondant once. First, just so you know, I like to make things from scratch (just like my cuppies!) and so I made fondant from scratch. I've never made such a mess...and I mean while making the fondant AND the fondant I placed on my cake. I don't call it a cake disaster 'cause I had never in my life used fondant so it wasn't THAT bad either. After trying twice (yeah THAT many times), I resigned from fondant.

Hi, there!!


Although I always loved being in the kitchen, eating AND cooking, I wasn't all that great at it...well, the cooking part. I LOVED baking. THAT I was ok in. Then I got interested in baking and decorating cakes. I sucked...I wanted to be Duff Goldman and I was soooo not him. But, THEN I discovered cupcakes...and I fell in love.

Hi, I'm BrightEyes co-owner of Cyber-Box, a cybercafe that specializes in cupcakes. That's MY area.

But, besides baking my cuppies, I love doing a whole bunch of other things. I love reading and am very into movies/TV. I also LOVE fashion, make-up, shoes...(I just remembered I have The Fashion Show on my DVR to watch tonight!! WOO-HOO!!) I won't continue about the things I like cause I can go and on and on.

I'm everywhere in my somewhere. But, whatever it is I's always my cup of cake.
