IMG_6924 IMG_6929 IMG_6935 IMG_6940 IMG_6942

discovered on facebook, booked via e-mail, picked up in person, fell in love in an instant. Sinful & Delicious Cupcakes is officially our family bakers; this mother and daughter duo have impressed us to the point where we will forever have them booked for our cake needs. Birthdays, Holidays, and really any excuse for a cake, will be booked through these two amazing woman; I think it’s pretty obvious that they know what they are doing even if they are self taught!

Little about Sinful & Delicious Cupcakes:

We are a mother daughter team who are 100% self taught. Before a couple years ago we had never worked with fondant before! My mom, Sarah is the baker and I, Christina am the decorator. We started making cupcakes for our family and friends not knowing we would ever be making cakes. We created a Facebook Page and that’s how we grew. We’re doing this as a hobby for now with the hopes of one day owning our own little shop. Everything is made from scratch; our batters, icings, and fillings are made with the freshest, best ingredients, real fruit, NEVER anything canned or boxed.

If you’re local and are looking for not only a gorgeous cake, but yummy and affordable, check out Sinful & Delicious Cupcakes Facebook page and get in touch with them there, or by e-mail at sinfuldeliciouscupcakes@hotmail.com. Sofia Marie was smitten with her strawberry shortcake Daniel Tiger birthday cake, as you can see here, not even a cold would hold bake the excitement. I can say that Sinful & Delicious Cupcakes easily made her birthday magical, we’re still talking about the cake this very day!

{photo source: google // instagram} ...since having a child, my views, my thoughts, and my concerns, have changed drastically regarding advertising. There is one for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does. Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels,” Bialik remarked. “Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie? I mean, I know that society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do in society, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons? Am I a … read more...

smc (10)

Sofia turns three on Monday. ....honestly, how does that happen? We've had 1,095 days with her, we've had 26,280 hours with her, we've had 1,576,800 minutes with her as our little baby girl. We've cried together, laughed together, sang together, danced together, fought, hugged, kissed... Motherhood has been the most difficult agreement I've ever made; funny though how's it by far the most rewarding. Some days are good, some days less than good, but each day ends with me thinking about her sweet little face, her little tiny voice, her larger than life attitude, and I smile. This kid, she makes my world go around, and although it' one a wild ride; I'll gladly sit in this … read more...
