cupcake day



I adore the stop-and-smell-the-roses nature of blogging.



Today I made my first visit to The Bakery Boutique, an adorable Rhode Island bakery I had somehow previously overlooked. I was happy to have my camera along while I stopped to admire the cupcakes; the cashier was so accommodating and even pulled this tray from the display case so that I could take photographs.



I purchased a sampling of cupcakes: Wedding Cake, chocolate, and Pink Champagne.



I believe these are the most delicious cupcakes ever! EVER! The prettiest, too.



Cupcakes just might be the perfect way to turn a plain old afternoon into a little celebration.

Yum, yum, yum! There is a bakery here called Crumbs. A former CPA who chucked the numbers to follow her passion. The most delicious cupcakes and goodies ever. I bet these are equally as delicious! Happy day to you. TAmmy

Yummo, those look so good. Have you seen the cupcake makers that are out now? I happened upon them the other day and they look really cool for people who don't want to make the entire batch of cupcakes at once. I am having a giveaway over at my Gloryfeathers blog if you are interested. Blessings to you
