Hi, I'm Erin. Welcome!

I am the author, professional baker, and photographer behind Butter and Bliss. What started in 2019 as a personal blog to chronicle my love for desserts, baking in small batches – and of course butter! – has grown into a trusted source for small batch baking recipes and desserts for two.

Black Forest Cupcakes

The best small batch black forest cupcakes to celebrate bright summer cherries!  Super moist chocolate cupcakes layered with cherry compote and homemade whipped cream.  And the cherry on top?  The cherry on top!
