We LOVE Valentine's Day!!

What's not to love about a day that encourages us to make adorable cards for those we love and be covered in pink glitter and hearts while you're at it??! We, of course made cupcakes for our loves, but what is most important about this holiday is having that special moment with those you hold so dear to your heart. This is the first Valentine's Day without Grandma Lola, so we wanted to honor her by sharing this beautiful picture of her and my grandfather on their wedding day, August 14, 1945 at Assumption Church, on Amherst Street in Buffalo. 
We love you!! xoxo

Spotted: Cupcakes at Nardin Forum 2010

Tonight, our alma mater, Nardin Academy held it's first Forum, gathering of a panel of influential Nardin graduates, discussing tricks of the trade, and how to succeed in your chosen paths. 
We had such a great time! It was a very inspirational meeting of the minds, and a great introduction for the young girls to the great women that have proceeded them in the halls of 135 Cleveland Ave. We were more than glad to serve our cakes at the event. We can't wait until next year!

Oh, to live the life of a "snowbird"....

Even though we may live in Buffalo, New York, arguably one of the most "snowiest" locations in the continental United States... our heart goes out to our relocated WNY-ers in the recently snow-laden Virginia and the surrounding DC area... 

Meaning that, on your behalf, we will take a bite of our key lime mini cupcakes with key lime cream cheese frosting and imagine we were in Florida, enjoying the rays and local key lime pies.... Oh, the troubled lives we would lead... 

"Wish you were here!! xoxo"
