Cupcake Comradery

I like to bond over cupcakes. Or any sweets, for that matter.

Yesterday I met up with a friend at a sweet little cupcake store and chatted over little sugared cakes and vanilla juice.

I guess it's because sweets can be such a comfort food, and induces the desire to share it with others. At least that's how I rationalize all my social sugar intake, hehehehe.

This little outing inspired me. I got home and decided that I want to host a Texas Blogger's Cupcake Social. It will be in Houston, and I was thinking of doing it in May. Any Texans interested in coming? Or anyone not from Texas that might be in the area in May?

AHHH! I am beyond obsessed with cupcakes! I had a tier of them at my wedding in lieu of a cake! I wish I was a Texan!

Ya know, ever since the baby came around, I haven't been able to eat sweets! Anything with sugar is too sugary for me. It is really quite sad. I had better be able to have sweets again in the 2nd trimester, otherwise this kid is grounded for life!
Love ya!

Ohhh, I'd love to attend a cupcake social (especially if you'd be there)! But unfortunately, as you know, I am much too far away to attend. Maybe I'll make myself some cupcakes today to ease the pain!

I totally love a yummy cupckae here and there. My friends and I always go to Cupcake Royal and get a few small ones to share and coffee. It's just so indulgent and fun. Great idea, too bad I'm all the way up here in WA!

Anna Ander said...

Excellent idea! Though it might be a little hard for me to make it :). How about a Spring Swap this year? The last one was such a treat.

Love,
A.
