While cakes are great and beautiful, cupcakes are just as great and beautiful. They feel like a gift more than a treat. It's made just for you, with love.
Both Brides and Birthday girls are going to cupcake route. Instead of a regular cake or just as favors.
A friend gave me a day-by-day tear off calendar for Christmas last year and I spent all of 2009 baking cupcakes. I was known as the cupcake lady at both mine and my husband Jake's work. It was a delectable time.
I found this poem that Laura from Laura's Cupcake Shack received from her husband Anthony. It is one of the reasons why I believe cupcakes really are like gifts.
TO SOME, ITS A SWEET, A YUMMY LITTLE TREAT
BUT FOR ME ITS MUCH MORE,THAN A BITE TO EAT.
ITS BECAUSE OF A CUPCAKE, AND GODS MASTER PLAN,
YOU GET TO WATCH ME GROW, FROM A BOY TO A MAN.
SO I GIVE YOU THIS GIFT, AS A REMINDER TO SEE,
WHAT MAYBE SWEET TO ONE, IS MUCH SWEETER TO ME.
IT REPRESENTS HOW WE ALL CAME TO BE..
SOME SUGAR AND FLOUR TURNED INTO A FAMILY.
A SYMBOL OF LOVE, OR A SYMBOL OF DESTINY
A CUPCAKE IS THE REASON
I HAVE YOU, AND YOU HAVE ME……
