Hi, I’m Liz, the Hoosier Momma over at Hoosier Homemade. I have enjoyed baking most of my life, and within the last couple years, have started creating cupcakes. I host Cupcake Tuesday every week on my blog, where other bloggers can share their creations too. If I’m not baking, you can find me on Twitter or BlogFrog.
