Hi Karen! These cupcakes are so cute! I met you a couple weeks ago when you did the (beautiful!) food styling for my New Year's Eve segment on GMA (puff pastry bites with chorizo, dark chocolate pudding shooters & lemon mocktail with rock candy). I was reading Tory's book and she mentioned you, which is what led me here. I'm definitely going to be trying out your low-carb "bagels." They look amazing! I hope you keep posting. I love seeing the behind the scenes shots of the food segments. Happy New Year!
