~ Hello Everyone ~
We can't have a birthday party without dessert, and for my little grand daughter's 1st party, cupcakes are definitely on the menu! I am absolutely in love with cupcakes! I'm so glad they've made a come back in recent years. Personally, they have been a constant favorite for me. I remember getting 25cents from my grandmother and swiftly making my way to the local bakery down the street! Ahhh, good times :) These days with the onset of paper crafting, cupcakes are more festive than ever!
