Cupcake Dive

By on Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Now here’s an idea: a cupcake dive! Do you live near the western shore of Michigan? Do you plan on getting married soon? Would you like to dive into a table full of delicious cupcakes? If you just said yes three times, you’re in luck.

Little River Casino of Manistee, Michigan is holding a “cupcake dive” this Sunday, October 21st at their bridal show.

Ten contestants will win a chance to dive into a table of cupcakes, looking for a diamond engagement ring.

Megan’s Cupcakes of Cadillac will supply 250 cupcakes for the event.

Good luck to all the contestants. May you not be distracted by a red velvet and continue on the diamond hunt!

Happy (belated) Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

As many of you may and should know, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax came out in the movie theaters this past Friday. This was also Dr. Seuss’ birthday as well!

Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

Football Cupcakes from Crumbs

By on Thursday, January 26th, 2012

So many people ask me what my favorite bakery is and I always have to answer Crumbs! I love their huge, overly sweet treats. They do tend to be a bit pricey but to me, they so worth it.   And even if you don’t live close to a Crumbs, they will deliver. They have a variety of shipping options but the cheapest is  UPS ground shipping for about $20 (plus the cost of the cupcakes).  They come delivered in an insulated container with dry ice.  Check out these football cupcakes- great for the party that has a mix of Giants and Patriots fans.
