Both sizes are yummy and very popular, but I must say that our sweet babycakes are most requested for some of the following events:
baby showers, confirmations, baht-mitzvahs, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, bachelorette parties, luncheons and high-tea, sip 'n sees, christenings, open houses, birthday gatherings, baptisms, and anniversaries!

As I held the card and looked a little closer, I quickly realized that this card was a true labor of love. Not only had the pretty argyle-patterned paper been sewn onto this blank card and envelope, but the cupcake and congratulations had been carefully stitched on as well! What a gorgeous, tiny treasure!

I discovered Johnny Cupcakes back in '06 and just loved his story! I won't even try to describe what he does here, but I encourage you take a moment to read his story for yourself: http://shop.johnnycupcakes.com/story/
Johnny continues to take his 'bakery' to new levels and has recently opened a shop in LA. I only peek in on his site every few months, so when I saw webisodes on his blog explaining what he had planned for the new LA shop, I was very impressed!
You can view his final webisode #3 on his blog: http://www.johnnycupcakes.com/blog/ (scroll to entry date July 25, 2008)
Hope you enjoy his story as much as I do! =)

I was not familiar with this sweet song until a customer told me to look for it on YouTube. I fell it love with it immediately! It's the perfect song for those moments when a tired, crying or extra busy toddler needs 'redirecting'. Here are the lyrics in case you want to give it a go:
You're my Honeybunch, Sugarplum
Pumpy-umpy-umpkin, You're my Sweetie Pie
You're my Cuppycake, Gumdrop
Snoogums-Boogums, You're the Apple of my Eye
And I love you so and I want you to know
That I'll always be right here
And I love to sing sweet songs to you
Because you are so dear

After being open for nearly two years we have enjoyed meeting some wonderful people here in our shop. I’m guessing that you may just be one of them! So many of you have entered our little venture wondering what, exactly, were we all about. Once you discovered and embraced our cupcakes you made your way back, and we've been thrilled to see you again…and again! Others have found themselves in cupcake ‘quest-mode’ with hopes of finding us open after discovering us sold-out or closed on previous visits. The perseverance of each of you is deeply appreciated, and incredibly impressive!
For each of you, I simply want to offer snippets of people, places and things that may interest you. These Sweet Mentions are simply that…mentions!
Happy Reading! =)
