One of my favorite traditions at the Center for Court Innovation is the annual bake-off that happens at our holiday party. I can't remember exactly when the tradition started, but I seem to recall my friend Eric being at the center of it. The best part of the bake-off for me is all of the trash talk it engenders in the run up. Here is my small contribution: a photo of the cupcakes I baked this weekend with my daughters. I don't know how they will taste by Tuesday, but I think they look pretty good.
