Grandbaby Cakes 2012 Review

It has been a banner year (or shall I saw few months since I officially launched at the beginning of September) for my baby blog Grandbaby Cakes.  Some may call me a rookie or a newbie in this blogging world but I prefer the term baby. I love the inquisitive nature of children as they learn the world around them and take their first steps.  You, my readers, have been like the parents who have nurtured me on this journey with love and acceptance.  Thanks to you for such an amazing year!  I look forward to growing, improving and providing more recipes and love in the new year.
