Meet Linnie

Cupcake Linnie Marcus

My name is Linnie and I live in the mid sized city of Portland, Oregon with my lovely Pup Buttercup and my devilishly hunk of a boyfriend.  I am a very outspoken, bubbly, always joking, the outdoors is my second home, granola hippie, showers twice a day kind of girl.  Yes, I am a little bit of everything, but I think that makes life a little more fun and a lot less constricting, right?

Within the last year I have fallen madly in love with baking.  Well, let me clarify that, not just baking but CUPCAKES.  Sadly, I am one of those people who can bake like a champ but I fall pretty short when it comes to cooking.  But, it works pretty well for me and my boyfriend.  I bake and he cooks! It’s a match made in heaven if I do say so myself.  And luckily Buttercup loves both.

Last year I graduated college with a degree in Health.  I was going to save the world one person at a time with Physical Therapy.  But then, a week before I was about to submit my application for the Doctorate program I broke the news to my family that I wanted to become a baker.  

With large amounts of support from my family and friends I set off to find my niche with baking.  I got a job at a french bakery and quickly realized large production bakeries were not for me, and pastries just didn’t have enough creative flair for me.  After about 8 months getting up at 3am everyday I quit the bakery and set out working for myself! 

I realized I wanted to make my own rules, and bake what I wanted to bake when I wanted to bake them.  I started baking cakes and cookies and just didn’t get that happy feeling I was looking for.  Then, one day I decided to bake some cupcakes.  And BAM I was in love!!!!! I have been baking cupcakes ever since.

One day I hope to open up my own store front and save each person one cupcake at a time, but for now I am on my own quest to become the best baker this side of the Mississippi.  With so many ideas running through my mind, I decided to create a blog to express my thoughts, feelings, and recipes that I am going through. I hope to get other bakers (professional and novice) involved in my baking experience so I truly can become a great baker!

I currently have an Etsy Shop where I ship unfrosted cupcakes and a side of frosting all over the country…A Do It Yourself Kit.  Check my Cupcake Shop page for more details.

Thank you so much for taking an interest in my cupcake adventures! 

And remember, a cupcake WILL always help!
