Who says Europe doesn’t like cupcakes?

I just found this french cupcake company, CupCup,  and their website is super cute! (Not as good as Cups of course!) Enjoy.

Amazing Aqua Cake

I came across this while watching my twitter feed this morning (from @sweetapolita). Since I’ve been in a mint-y mood lately, I thought I should post it! The picture was posted on Pioneer Women Photography and it links to the Sweetapolita flicker photo stream.  You can also see more beautfil cakes at her website

Minty Fashion

So I’ve been working on the design of my blog and I just have to share this collage I came across on It matches my background! Plus how great is it that seafoam green is popular again, even if short-lived? That color always reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream, any anything minty and delicious, like a Minty Wonderland cupcake.

Speaking of good things – A la Martha – I am focusing on drawing more these days and will be making an effort to post more of my personal artwork.  Fist things first, I had to create a logo.  You’ll see my business cards in progress below…They’re going to be printed by Igloo letterpress, a fantastic company that I’m excited to work with. I’m still debating what the colors will be…if you have any suggestions let me know.
