The Cupcake Boom??

Posted: October 8th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: chitchat, shopping | No Comments »

My friend came over from Japan last month.
We spend great time, talking, driving around the city, shopping and eating.

I realized she was enjoying buying cupcake recipe book, cupcake pan, cupcake tools and CUPCAKES!!  I asked her if cupcakes are recent popularity. The answer was “Oh, yes.”

Cupcakes are not just cupcakes anymore. Making cupcakes is art!! Look at this blog post.
Amazing cupcakes!!

We found one small cupcake shop, Yummy Cupcakes in Santa Monica.


Their cupcakes are not like character decoration type, but very nice and cute. And taste?  Top part with a lot of cream was a little bit too sweet for me, but bottom part(cake) was very tasty. They are doing great job on that.

I might want to try cupcakes someday, but for now I want to see more creative cupcakes by friends or other people.
