If you were to take a peek at my blog roll (the list of blogs I read on a day-to-day basis) you'd find three different cupcake blogs. THREE. The creative ways they can be molded, decorated, and showcased simply blows my mind--not to mention that fact that a cupcake, in and of itself, can be rather yummy. :-) So when the Cupcake Love Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle arrived last week, needless to say... I was a little excited. You have to admit... cupcakes are just plain fun. (I think it's the sprinkles!)
At first glance, this particular product line has the makings of the perfect Valentine's Day collection. It's filled with your typical seasonal confections amidst a background of festive pink and white. But if you look a little closer, you'll see there's more cupcakes and sprinkles than there are Valentine's Day expressions, therefore increasing its versatility and helping you get a little more bang for the buck.
I personally think this collection would be perfect for birthday parties! Or maybe you're participating in a recipe album swap and you're looking for a sweet background or accent paper to highlight your grandmother's Red Velvet Cupcake recipe? Or perhaps you too can admit you have a cupcake obsession (like I do) and these papers and embellishments provide the perfect excuse for scrapbooking a little more about youself. :-)
And if it helps, bake a batch of homemade chocolate or vanilla cupcakes to inspire you. Just don't forget the sprinkles. :-)
