If you spend as much time in the kitchen as my husband and I do, you know how nice (or necessary) it is to have some good music to accompany you. I’ve posted before about the speakers we use, and today I’m launching a new series of posts on the different kitchen-specific music playlists I have on my iPod.
Because I’ve been busy making hundreds of cupcakes lately, that’s what I’m sharing with you today: selections from my Cupcake Baking Playlist:
*note: the links will take you to the iTunes store, in case you want to listen to and/or buy the song.
Super Duper Love – Joss Stone
Because I super duper love baking, this is a good song to kick off what will be hours of mixing, measuring out, and baking the little cakes.
Sweet Lorraine – Nat King Cole
Yes, it’s what I named my little home-based bakehop after, and really- this song never gets old for me. Nat King Cole’s version is classic (it’s the song that made him famous!)
How Sweet It Is – Michael Buble
Appropriate for making frosting, sugar cookies, caramel, and candy.
Too Darn Hot – Ella Fitzgerald
One of my favorite films as a child was Kiss Me Kate– which is where this gem of a song comes from. Ella Fitzgerald’s version is perfect for when the kitchen gets too hot (in my kitchen, that’s all the time).
I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) – The Four Tops
See a pattern here? I like listening to sweet songs for sweet making.
Hollaback Girl – Gwen Stefani
This song always makes me feel like making banana cupcakes. “These cupcakes are bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!” (Sorry, I had to).
What music do you listen to in the kitchen?
