    Yum yum yum ! ! I have a serious question.. Might sound utter simple.. But how many grams are in a ‘CUP’ How big is a cup? I’ve looked for cups in the kitchen stores here in Poland but never find anything. :( All the yummy things on the net measure in cups :/ Confused much.

        I was thinking the same thing Kathy! Cups/spoons the whole thing!
        It’s always nice when you can do mindless measuring ;)

    I really need to come back to this. This holiday season I did something I’ve never done before. I baked cupcakes, sure they were out of the box but I still had to bake them lol but I really need to start doing this once a month. Or once a week maybe. It’s fun lol and they’re tasty. Very tasty! Happy New Years!
