It’s that special day of the year again, when people around the world unite to share their love for Nutella – that’s right, it’s World Nutella Day! Continue reading
I did it – I had a fourth baby! As cute and fun as babies are (well, most of the time anyway), I do indeed hope that this is my last one! Continue reading
For the past couple of weeks I’ve had a craving for salted caramel sauce. I’ve been a little hesitant to just simply make it because of my unfamiliarity with the induction stove-top in our new house. Continue reading
In Sydney, we are currently experiencing a heat wave; it is just dreadful. We don’t have air-conditioning, so our Nutella is lot softer than it should be; I can’t complain about that though, because during winter, the Nutella gets so firm that I have to put it in the microwave to become spreadable!

I have a thing for peanut butter cookies, and I’m really picky about them. They have to be peanut buttery and chewy, and preferably without the crunch of crunchy peanut butter or added peanuts. Continue reading
One of the most extraordinary things happened to me last Friday. I’ve been putting a lot of thought into how exactly I’m going to tell you about it and I’m not ready to share the news just yet (and no, I’m not pregnant!). Continue reading

The Sweetest Kitchen hasn’t always been The Sweetest Kitchen. I started out blogging about cupcakes in late May of 2008 at Blogspot; my blog was then called The Cupcake Review. As I started to expand and blog about more than cupcakes I knew that I needed to switch to my own domain. After much thought, I finally decided on the name The Sweetest Kitchen in late February of 2009, and launched the new domain on March 3. It’s now been one year and my blogging experience has been such fun. The Sweetest Kitchen has became more popular than I ever expected it to – I’ve almost reached 500,000 page views!
My most famous post, with at least 30,000 page views so far, was the zombie Halloween cupcake I made for Iron Cupcake: Earth and Cupcake Hero in October 2009. However, my personal favorite of anything I have ever baked since beginning this blog is the pumpkin dulce de leche cupcake. Everyone who has made these has raved about them, and I’m so happy about that!
Today I’ve made some cupcakes in celebration of The Sweetest Kitchen’s 1-year anniversary. They are actually very similar to the pumpkin dulce de leche cupcakes, but instead of the pumpkin cake, I used a chocolate cake and sprinkled the frosting with sea salt.
