Hello, Cupcake!

Today, I got a package in the mail from my AMAZING friend, Amanda(her blog is 'Cupcakes and Corsets')-who-coincidentally is HOSTING my Gourmet Cookie Giveaway! If you haven't entered yet, click HERE!
Anywho-It was my BIRTHDAY on Saturday, and she mailed me some INCREDIBLE goodies!(including the cupcake BOW clip I have on in the pic above!)
Jasmine didn't really...involve herself with much except for when she made a mess of the wrappings...aaaand then hid in an empty water bottle case as if it were a fort...judging me...
(Sorry for "the ring-ish" pictures! She moves fast and I didn't understand what the camera wanted from me :)
Let's take a journey through what else was in the package-This girly was able to combine THREE of my favorite things-Cupcakes-Hello, Kitty-and Pumpkins!!
Inside, there were these ADORABLE boxes wrapped in pink ribbon and Halloween- Hello, Kitty Stickers!
Nestled inside each of them was a CUPCAKE!
They were little pumpkin spice cakes with cream cheese frosting-enveloped in a delicate shell of pink tinted white chocolate and sprinkles.
That's my pumpkin. His name is Gerald.
Each was topped with a CHERRY SOUR candy!(which is one of my FAVORITE candies EVER-I don't think Amanda knew that-It was just a lucky chance that they were sitting a top the cakes!)
You can't tell in the photos, but there are tiny pink cupcakes ON the WRAPPERS!! SO CUTE!!
I took a couple of photos with the lovelies, so here we go!
FABULOUS! Just MAKES the outfit I think!
AND- I cut them in a very..."Halloween" fashion! "Cupcakes, I'm comin for YOU!" :)
Here's a look see inside the yummies! I ate this very one, and it was like a tiny orb of orange pumpkins, ginger, nutmeg, chocolate, cream, and a crisp Fall breeze!
I DID share them with others despite my automatic reaction to hoard! :) Here's my daddzo partaking! He said, and I quote, "That was CRAZY good!"
ALSO in the package were COOKIES! It was upon seeing these that I realized- I think God DOES like me after all!! They were Peanut Butter AND Chocolate CHIP! With little purple bows! They're FANCY! :)
YUM! You gots to know when to hold em in Texas! :)
We're nearing the end of our journey through the sweet confections, so HOLD ON and SOAK IT UP-Cuz this is ur LAST look!
You can order some of the spicey baby cakes of magic I had today at her website, or at her 'Fancy Lady Gourmet ETSY Shop'!

Happy happy birthday! You look fantastic with that cupcake and naming your pumpkin Gerald is a stroke of sheer genius.

Ali said...

What a lady! She's amazing. Especially since she made you my fave cookies - peanut butter and chocolate chip.

I mean, is there any better combo? Answer: no.

The cupcakes look divine. How fun!

Cupcakes and cheesecake are my weakness. Oh boy, I die.

Meg said...
