Harajuku was not a word in my vocabulary until several weeks ago when a friend of mine showed me these amazing cupcakes that she made for a client here in Chicago.
In case you are like me and you don’t know, Harajuku is the name of an area in Tokyo, which is known for the different types of fashion that can be seen here (like cyber-punk, ganguro, and cosplay). Gwen Stefani helped popularize the idea of “Harajuku Girls” by dedicating her two solo albums and her clothing line to Harajuku fashion.
Enough about that, though. Check out these awesome cupcakes! And, if you’re in the Chicago area, consider looking up Karlie’s Cakes and Cookies on Facebook. She has a lot of talent!
