Our family stopped by today and had cupcakes. My son had the S'mores cupcake. He inhaled it! I had the Animal Cookie cupcake and it was so yummy and sweet! My husband had the White Chocolate Raspb...erry cupcake and I have to tell you, I've never seen him love a cupcake THAT MUCH! We like to try different Cupcake Wars places when we are in their areas...and this is one of the best we've tried yet! Thanks! See More

That's right. The bag says 5 pounds of spicy jalapeño goodness. Only the best and freshest ingredients go into my granola. We will be selling it as wickedly hot jalapeño granola at our haunted bakery.... Come in and buy some Halloween treats before they are gone. See More

I'm so excited about my newest product in our gourmet gift giving product line. It is a chocolatey pillow of Gluten free bliss. If you said a homemade chocolate marshmallow, you are correct. Marshmall...ows are perfect for mailing gift boxes cz they are so light and squishy like edible packaging material. Better for the environment and better tasting than styrofoam. HaHa. So come on over to My Sweet Cupcake tomorrow, Friday, for a free sample. I'll have a pix tomorrow from the shop on my instagram.
