The Cupcake Craze

Who can resist a cupcake?  Lots of folks are baking them, eating them, celebrating with them...

When we were at the Mall of America, I saw a Cupcake Stand in one of the kitchen stores...It was sooo cute and I was sooo tempted just to buy it...but the price?  Would have cost the same as a week's worth of groceries...

So after we got home, I shopped on-line and found this one for about half the price...
The UPS truck brought it this week...And I think it is actually better...

It is sturdy, but can be taken apart for storage...

It holds 24 cupcakes...the whole batch...
And Line loves cupcakes...well, who doesn't?!
And what little girl could resist these adorable cupcake totes?  These have been handmade by my blog friend, Suzanne, at Just Another Hang Up.

I have one of her Grown-Up Girl totes, so I know that her workmanship is outstanding...
It is perfect for my knitting and crocheting projects. 

If I knew a little girl, she'd be getting one of these for Easter!

Suzanne sells these in her Etsy Shop.
I think it's tough to pick a favorite!

I love your new cupcake stand! Where did you get it? I've been ogling one like that at Crate and Barrel for a long time now. One of these days I'll have to pick one up, but I'm curious where you got yours... ;o)

Thanks so much for the kind comments about the cupcake totes. I appreciate it!

Cupcakes have always been one of my favorites and I feel like they've finally come into their own. I have a cupcake tower but I'm thinking I like yours much better. And those cupcake totes. How cute are they!?!?!?!

I like these cupcake holders-I was at a wedding today and they had cutting of the cupcake.

That stand is so cute! I want one! I was shocked to find that cupcakes have become so popular, some bakeries charge nearly $5 per cupcake! Can you even imagine ordering a dozen? Crazy!

The cupcake totes are adorable!

Those totes are adorable! I love the cupcake stand too. I like the fact that you can take it apart to store it.

Thanks for the follow! I'm returning it. Nice to "meet" you.

Those cupcake totes are the sweetest thing ever! I also love the picture of your little lamb. For whatever the reason I just adore them...they seem so fresh from God.

Love your blog!
