Guest Post - Cupcakes

Hello from LA! We've been seeing apartments non-stop since we arrived and have a full schedule again today. Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary and Pizzelles was kind enough to put together a little post inspired by our favorite sweet treat, cupcakes! Brandi was one of the first bloggers I met in person, also my awesome roomie at Alt this past Jan. and has fast become one of my dearest friends!

I discovered a bit of inspiration over in Janie’s shop, something I hadn’t seen before: cupcake note cards. It may be impossible to say no to a cupcake: all that sweetness in one little wrapper. But my favorite thing about cupcakes is the parties they can inspire, so I decided to create a little daydream collection for a special event. It’d start with the cupcake note cards and a handwritten note to each guest, letting them know the details. Bright straws would be next because what are cupcakes without a glass of milk.

We’d do something outdoors because it’s finally beginning to feel like spring. There would be a grand dessert table with a tower of cupcakes and a few other sweet treats. We’d spread out picnic blankets and chat until twilight.

And every guest would go home with a poster and a few supplies to create their own treats later on. A few glittering sprinkles and a few simple white ones, to suit whatever mood you may be in.

What do you think? Is it time for that daily dose of sugar yet?
