Baking Day With Torey!

BAKING DAY HAS COME! This is part one. Part two will come when I feel like coating a mass amount of randomn things in chocolate. Anyway…I invited my friend Torey to come help. You must understand something here. I don’t bake with people. I’m a perfectionist who never lets ANYONE HELP! Really, not anyone. So I stretched myself, even said nice comments to her, and it didn’t end up with either one of us in the oven. I’m so proud!
