Dulce de Leche Cupcakes

I’ve done it. I’ve finally succumbed to wearing one of those baby slings. With that I’m cheering myself up with copious amounts of sprinkles with these Dulce de Leche Cupcakes.

Now, I get it, lots of women wear these things, but for me—I’ve always had such an aversion to them. No need to discuss my non-sensical reasons.

So while I’m now sporting one of these man-made kangaroo pouches, I will only do so when shooting. It’s just impossible to style and shoot with one arm—forget wearing it any other time. I’d rather be a one-arm wife, mother, baker and task-master.

    What beautiful pictures — so fun!! Maybe the new little guy will pick up your photography skills just from being in the pouch while you work — maybe a family of food bloggers is on the way!

    Ooooh Naomi you are amazing- a new mom that has truly out done yourself- these look delish!

    I have yet to find a place that gets the best light in my house- I guess it depends on the time of day.

    The game is afoot and I got Plate to Pixel to help me!
