This is something that’s been in the works for a while and now that the issue is out, I can finally talk about it!

Food Network magazine approached me and to say I’m excited is an understatement. I am a *huge* fan of Food Network so it was great to work with them and have one of my creations featured in the magazine!

I first made these cupcakes for my friend Cheryl’s baby’s first birthday party two years ago! First birthdays are a huge deal for people from Hawaii and I wanted to make something special, so I took the idea of Hawaiian shave ice but made it in cupcake form. It’s a great summer party treat and Food Network thought so too!

Here’s a bigger pic from the interior of the magazine:

Very cool! My name is in there in super fine print but you have to buy the magazine to see that part. I’m thrilled with how they look! Thanks Food Network!
