lemon thyme cupcakes with honey cream recipeAs you can see, my sweet little spot on the Internet has gotten a facelift. It was time to make a change and I was overjoyed to work with two people again (the same duo that created the new look for The Creative Mama) that make this process so easy and enjoyable. Jane Johnson of Jane Johnson Photography and Design made me this gorgeous new logo. Working with Jane is amazing because she is good at knowing what I want, even when I do not know exactly. I knew that I wanted to incorporate lemons into my new brand somehow, and Jane made me the perfect new logo. Lemons are one of my very favorite flavors, and it reflects everything that I want this space to be. Clean and fresh. I also got work with Courtney Kirkland again. She is a brilliant web designer and wonderful to work with. Courtney is a saint for dealing with me, as I do not speak web design. But she can take my idea, and make it work. Both women are a pleasure. Thank you both so much.

In the meantime, things might be a little off center, or not work perfectly, but we are fixing it and working out all of the kinks.

I also signed on to work with Tarte Creative Marketing, an all female marketing and advertising firm. Together, we are coming up with new ways to share content and to grow this web space. I am really excited about what is to come, and the projects that are in the works. I hope that you will join me on this journey, because without you, I would not have made it this far. This space is my home, and I love sharing my kitchen and my life with you.

And the cupcakes aren’t bad either.

To celebrate the launch of my new lemon inspired web space, I created a lemon and thyme scented cupcake with a honey whipped cream. This cupcake is a gentle mix of sweet and savory, and a beautiful way to end a meal. Made with olive oil and Meyer lemon, it is fancy and homey at the same time.

    I know I tweeted you already, but I have to say it again… beautiful new web layout, I love it! The cupcakes look great as well!

  22. I’m completely new to your site, so I can’t say, “WOW! What an improvement.” But, I can tell you it looks fantastic. I love the new logo. I love clean fresh feel of it (lemons do indeed embody this). And, I really love the Lemon Thyme Cupcakes. So yummy. I have a lemon basil muffin I love, but it doesn’t come with ooy gooy frosting. I can’t wait to give your version a try.

  26. Anne says:

    Just found your beautiful site –and love the idea of these cupcakes. Any thought on adapting them for folks with nut allergies? could I go with all flour instead of flour & almond meal?

    • bakedbree says:

      I would go with all flour. Maybe a little more lemon to boost the flavor that you are missing out from the almonds.

  27. Love the new look! It is so amazing, clean refreshing and I’ll just sit back, put my feet up and stay a while. Love it that much! Great job!
