Champagne Cake {2017: Life update}

Happy 2017! I’m back and ready to bake! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. I’ve busy with my new job and I didn’t have time to post anything. For my New Years resolution, I vowed to make time for my blog and YouTube channel. I really want to share more of my recipes and make many for you guys. My main goal is to post at least 2 times a week for the blog. To start off the New Year 2017, I made a Champagne cake to celebrate new beginnings and experiences.
