A Cupcake Kind Of Day

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


I made this little cupcake carrier with a FREE template from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
While Claire is on vacation Lisa has hijacked her blog for a little friendly competition. The winner will receive a free stamp set of their choice. I love their stamp sets, but don't own any yet. Hopefully this will be my opportunity to try their stamps, for free!!


And where did I get that cute little cupcake? My mom, dad, and I set out on a quest yesterday. We traveled quite far for unique and tasty cupcakes. Our first stop was Sweet Avenue Bake Shop a vegan bakery in Rutherford, NJ. They have different cupcakes each day of the week so make sure you check their website before you go to see if they are making your favorite. After that we headed off to Cupcakes Galore and More... in Montclair, NJ. They have giant cupcakes in all different candy bar and pie flavors. We shared a Key Lime Pie cupcake that was delicious.



If you live in the area and love unique shops and places to eat, go check out Montclair Center. There were so many cool places to check out. We will definitely have to go back another day to see all of it. That's where I found the coolest little shop. I'll tell you more about that later.

  8. Hi Kara! Oh, what a cute project!!! You worked wonders with Claire's template! Thanks for playing!

    I actually had a gourmet cupcake today from a bakery and it was DELISH!!! Mine was chocolate with a strawberry cream inside and then a strawberry whipped frosting laced with chocolate shavings. I can still taste it!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
