Bride and Groom Cupcakes

Happy Tax Day, Y’all!

Well…technically, it’s not, since it’s, you know, a Sunday.  And the government DOES still take weekends off.  Still, I see that date on the calendar and that’s what I think of.  Oh no!  Wait!  Whew.  Okay.  I already did that.

Cake versus Cupcake: The Smackdown

In this corner we have the traditional wedding cake.  The modern wedding cake was introduced in the 20th century and the tiered wedding cake became popular in 1902.

In the other corner we have the cupcake.  The cupcake can actually be traced back to 1796…over one hundred years before the first modern wedding cake.  Their popularity at weddings only happened in the 2000’s as cupcakes became trendy.  According to Wikipedia, the cupcakes first gained publicity in 2001 after Magnolia Bakery in New York City was featured on an episode of Sex and the City.  Thank YOU Carrie Bradshaw.

I love them all..vanilla, chocolate, old school (vanilla cake & chocolate icing) and any other Read More


Red Velvet Wedding Cupcakes

Disney Cupcakes

Do you ever see a picture and suddenly all is right with the world? This just happened to me.

There is something you should know about me interwebs…it only takes one of three things to make me happy: Cupcakes, Disney World & anything pink. Combine them all together? Well..let’s just say after I found this picture my husband had to come and pick my jaw up off the floor and put it back together. In other words? Perfection!

Just look at this gorgeous presentation of Red Velvet Cupcakes at a recent Disney Wedding. The frosting looks almost Read More
