Cupcakes A-Z: Z is for..


Specifically, Zelda Ocarina of Time cupcakes.

However, before I go there... let's pause guys. This is my last letter! Alphabet DONE! It also happens to be my wedding eve as I sit here and type this. It is just after midnight where I live and as soon as I can stop acting like I am a four year old on Christmas Eve... maybe I can even get some sleep.

Big days are always hard to settle down for and, as far as I can recall in the history of me to date... this is my biggest day yet. Plus, my wedding is going to be so much fun! So much to be wired and excited for!

Sleep is overrated, ha.

And on that note. Resuming now. Zelda.

Cupcakes A-Z: Q is for...


From the beloved TV show, Doug.

Cupcakes A-Z: P is for...


Cupcakes A-Z: O is for...

Hogwarts Owls, to be precise.

Harry Potter was an inevitable letter to occur. Even if we have already devoted an entire menu to the series, it could never be enough.


You may have noticed that I cranked out multiple cupcake alphabet letters yesterday and that it seems this trend is continuing today.

With the wedding this weekend, all of the planning seems to be (knock on wood, praying it to be true, please God do not punish me for saying this) done... and yet my stress level will not drop back down to normal levels of compulsive and so here we are!

I am wired. Excited, nervous, and wired. And I no longer have a to-do list that stretches into eternity for the wedding. What to do with my time? Sleep? Shower? Eat a real, decent meal perhaps?

Nope. Not when you're me. At this point, I have a SERIOUS vendetta against these fudging cupcakes. They have been a letter shaped thorn in my side that have taken me decades to finish and have been on my to-do list for over a YEAR and, until now, I have been unable to cross more than a few off at a time. So, clutzy team! We have a new goal.

I AM going to finish all these letter posts before I get married.

I will NOT start my new life chapter with the alphabet of sugary doom hanging over my head!

Ha, and hopefully when I return, we can boost some fresh blood and creativity back into this website!

Fingers crossed! Countdown to the wedding is t-minus 4 days. Bring it on.

Love to you all and thank you so SO much for all the support!

Cupcakes A-Z: N is for...


One of my all time favorite movies. Beautifully animated. All about FISH!

Cupcakes A-Z: M is for...


I really couldn't have geeky, pop culture, alphabet cupcakes without representing Lord of the Rings somehow.


Cupcakes A-Z: L is for...


Ha, NO ONE knows that this movie is! If you know this movie, please comment so I can send you virtual hugs. This movie is pure glitter-sanity from the 80s and has a star studded cast including Tom Cruise and Tim Curry... and yet no one has ever heard of it or seen it that I know of. 

Other than the friends I forced to watch it.

Cupcakes A-Z: K is for...

Killer Bunny!
...and the Holy Hand-Grenade!

This little guy is from Monty Python and the Holy Grail!
