Sterling Silver Cupcake Pendant

By on Sunday, September 30th, 2012


I am such a sucker for sterling silver.  Earrings, bracelets, rings, charms and, of course, necklaces!  My most recent favorite silver find is the perfectly sweet handmade pendant from Etsy seller, Jodi Spade.  I just adore the pink Swarovski crystal cherry on top!  It is $38 and comes with an 18″ chain.  Make sure to check back here to ATC this week for my fav bracelet find too!

DIY Cupcake Costume

By on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

I am not a seamstress at all, so I am always on the look-out for Halloween costumes that require little to no sewing skills.  I would definitely give this one from the Food Network Magazine a try, but I’m not too sure how my little boy would feel about being dressed as a cupcake.

Cupcake Trapped in a Cupcake

By on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

A cupcake in a cupcake. Ingenious. Cupcakes perched atop other cupcakes. It’s cupcake chaos. And I love it.

The genius behind this cupcake madness is Nina’s Little Food Blog. Visit for recipe and decorating instructions. (You’ll probably want to hit the Google translate button.)
