Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, filled with friends and family, laughter and delicious treats. 2012 is here and I’m quite excited about the upcoming year here on Half Baked! So much has changed over the last year for this little cake blog…. so many talented individuals have shared their cakes, parties and recipes with us! I’ve personally been blessed with incredible opportunities to share my own work on a bigger stage. It’s been a year full of new challenges, new ventures, new contributors, and a new city. And with each and every post comes new readers and new friends! You all are what keeps me blogging… your kind comments, emails and likes! I could not be more grateful for all of the growth my little site has seen this year. It’s actually not so little anymore!
Before we continue on with bigger and even better posts for 2012, I think it’s only appropriate to pause and take a quick look back at the last year. I’ve made my way through the 200+ posts from 2011 to find the posts you loved the most. Based on your page views, here are your favorite 16 posts, in no particular order. Plus 4 of my own personal favorites. It’s a quick year in review…. The Top 20 Posts from 2011!
