Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Lavender Cupcakes

My favourite so far. I didn’t manage to get pictures because they disappeared so quickly!

The lavender flavour came from infusing lavender flowers with milk overnight, then draining the milk and using it in the batter and frosting. I even bought a lavender plant especially for the occasion!

Must make these again.

5/5 Stars!

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

These were really nice and something totally unique! Delicious fluffy vanilla cupcake with fresh chopped strawberries baked in the bottom, cream cheese frosting on top and a sprinkling of crushed digestive biscuits to create the effect of the cheesecake base, these cupcakes were really like a cupcake version of a cheesecake!

Still don’t quite top the lemon ones though, gosh they were good!


Lemon Cupcakes

Mmmmmmmm these had so much lemon zest in them and they were soooooo delicious! Really tangy and citrusy and almost refreshing in a way.

Defs my fav recipe so far.


Red Velvet Cupcakes

Mmmmmm these were so different and so tasty!
They had a nice tartness or tang to them and were so velvety and… well… red!

The cream cheese frosting was sooo good defs the best frosting so far!

5/5 stars!
(You have to look at this pic full screen it’s awesome!)

Chocolate Cupcakes

I made chocolate cupcakes a few days ago. They were outstanding! The cake was rich and chocolatey and the frosting was deliciously creamy.

The only problem was that the cupcakes sank a little when they got out the oven and peeled away from the patty cases.

4/5 Stars :)

Vanilla Cupcakes

I made the Hummingbird Bakery vanilla cupcakes and they were so good! It was probably the best vanilla cupcake recipe I’ve ever made. The cupcakes were deliciously light and fluffy, and not too sickeningly sweet. The frosting was even lighter and fluffier, with a texture almost like melted marshmallow.

5 stars out of 5!

(I recommend looking at the photo full screen it’s simply mouth watering!)

Cookbook decided

I’ve decided to cook my way through the Hummingbird bakery cookbook from start to finish. I’ll make the first thing this week.
