New Inspirational Cupcake Gift

Posted by on April 27th, 2012
There is an amazingly cute new gift on the cupcake market–Cravings from writer Carey Bailey. When Carey became a mom, she noticed that life got a little (or a lot) crazy. So, to help other moms find a few moments of peace and tranquility, she created Cravings, a collection of 40 card-size devotionals based on the Psalms. Each card contains an inspirational Bible verse, a “thoughtlet,” and an action idea. These cards are held in a gorgeous pink cupcake card holder that will be with its owners long after children are grown up (assuming of course that it is kept away from the children!).


I asked Carey, “Why cupcakes?” And she answered, “I knew I needed just the right image to capture the interest of moms. I began brainstorming with a good friend who also happens to be a graphic designer. I knew I wanted a shabby chic look but I could not pinpoint the exact image until I came across several hand stamped cupcake images on Etsy. It all clicked at that moment. My friend got to work and after just a few test cupcakes the Cravings cupcake was born. I love it!”
So of course, I had to know what cupcake Carey claims as a favorite. “It is much too hard to narrow my favorite cupcake down to one choice. My first pick would be a lemon cake with a lemon frosting with extra, extra lemon zest. I want it to make me pucker! My second pick would be a milk chocolate cupcake with a peanut butter frosting. Think of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in cupcake form.  I made both of these for the Cravings Cupcake Tasting Soiree I hosted for the launch of the product and they were a hit.”


If you know a mom who loves cupcakes, especially one who might be feeling a little overwhelmed with all that moms do, this would make a great gift!

Looking for the perfect party favor?

Posted by on September 5th, 2010

So you are planning the best birthday bash, the most wonderful wedding?  Have you organized great music, food, a perfect venue and have fantastic cupcakes planned for the occasion?  So after all this planning and preparation you know that your guests are going to remember your party for a long time to come!  Right?  Well maybe, but what will help is a visual prompt to take them back to that day!

My daughter is constantly looking at things and recalling the day we got them, like the Mothers day shopping list stuck to our fridge.  She tells me about buying it for me every second morning when she sees it!

To create your own visual prompt why not add a magnet to your party invite or to your party favor bag / box?  This could be the perfect thing for people to remember the date of an upcoming party and the fun they have had long after the event.  I found these in our ATC sponsor’s store Diva Entertains and just had to share them with you.  You personalize them with what ever you want to say, choose the background color (where applicable) and presto.

What do you think? Have you ever received a really bad party favor and what was it?  I would love to know!  Or do you know of some really good party favors?  I found some heart shaped measuring spoons which were really cool, though I am not sure that people not into baking would like it so much, though I’d take theirs, one set is never enough! :)

DC Cupcakes

Posted by on June 26th, 2010

Sitting  here watching/listening to the TLC channel I hear the word ‘Cupcakes’ and I whip my head over immediately to see what all the cupcake commotion is. It was all about TLC’s new show DC Cupcakes!

DC Cupcakes is about Georgetown Cupcake, a cupcake shop in Washington DC owned by a sister duo! They traded careers in fashion and equity to pursue something a little different. They are both lifelong bakers inspired by their grandmothers. They opened their shop on Valentines Day in 2008, the first cupcakery in DC!
