Cupcake Coin Purse

By on Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Our mailbox is overflowing with holiday catalogs  and when yesterday’s mail arrived I flipped through the Levenger catalog.   While looking at the catalog I noticed Pocquettes Cupcake Coin Purse for $39.00. It’s a small leather coin purse that has a hook so it can be clipped into a bag.

Black Friday at Sprinkles!

By on Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Sprinkles Cupcakes is opening a new location at The Grove in LA today! And it will be a grand opening indeed. From 10 till noon, you can meet Sprinkles founder and Cupcake Wars judge Candace Nelson. AND five of the cupcakes sold at this Sprinkles today will have a “golden ticket” baked inside (bite carefully). One ticket will be for a $1000 shopping spree at The Grove, a shopping, dining, and entertainment center in a 1900s themed setting. Two tickets will be for $500 shopping sprees at The Grove. And two will be for a “year of Sprinkles cupcakes” — a dozen cupcakes per month. This new Sprinkles opens at 10, so hurry. You’d better go get in line.

Cupcake Tin Advent Calendar

By on Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

If you’re looking for a craft to do while your family is together this mini cupcake tin advent calendar seems like a great project.  The Happy Scraps shared her homemade advent calendar and 24 activities ideas for each day.  So instead of opening a little present or putting together a little Christmas display you do something as a family each day leading up to Christmas.  I think this is a really nice, and different idea for creating new holiday traditions.
