Cupcakes are Fashion.

To me, cupcakes are fashion.  I've lived in the big city of Los Angeles and worked in the fashion industry.

I've traveled to Paris for inspiration..twice. And I want to go back.  I ate a ton of pasta & gelato in Milan, Italy.  I drank wine and watched the boys who weren't afraid to wear loud colored pants and carry man purses.  I went crazy shopping at the night markets in the wee hours in Hong Kong.  I've even given myself a facial in Iceland..in the famous Blue Lagoon.  Now I am back in Wisconsin living near family, kind of navigating where my life is going next.

And I believe that my passion for all things fashion comes alive in my cupcakes.  I really do truly believe that cupcakes are my calling. They allow me to design something so meaningful that you can *taste* it!

I remember when I was a little girl I used to draw pictures of women in clothing for hours upon hours. I dreamed of being a fashionista. I made magazines for my friends and handed them out in school.  I wore things that most people laughed at.  I even remember people telling me one day in junior high that it looked like I was wearing a tablecloth.  But it was me....in a tie-dye shirt that my mom used to wear back in the 70s. I felt inspired. ♥ That's all that mattered to me. Maybe it did look like a tablecloth. But I was 12, and I was trying to find my niche.

I just stumbled upon one of my fashion drawings from back in the day........
and although somewhat embarrassing..I guess I can share!
I think I drew this when I was like eight. (It was the late eighties!)


So now to back up my theory of cupcakes as fashion:
New York Couture sells some really fun cupcake fashion.

My favorite designer. ♥ My inspiration for all things fashion.



I want a cupcake dress.


I want to know who made this peacock cupcake that is all over the internet. I wish I could say I made it!

  1. I had to find the peacock cupcake source for an article I'm writing for CraftFail. If you still care to know, I believe it was made by this bakery: http://jdanton1.wix.com/lace-and-cakes#!cakes/albumphotos0=8

    Thank you for being one of the few sites I found with this photo that admits not having made it yourself! ;) Have a great day!
