Before we left for California, our baker son Benjamin informed me that he was a fan of the Face Book page, Icing On The Cupcake and while we were in Roseville he wanted to go see them. How he finds these things, I don't know but if there is a cake shop within 20 miles of anywhere we travel, he knows about it!
So...when I was talking to Suzie, my upline in Roseville, I was telling her we had to find this cupcake shop. She said the cupcake girls are stamping customers of hers and they would be at her class Tuesday night while we were in Roseville...what a small world!
We rolled into town about 5 pm, quickly got something to eat, dropped the guys off at the motel, changes clothes and I headed over to Suzie's to crash her class. Low and behold, Miss Suzie had told the cupcake ladies of our story and Head Cupcake, Shirley, had a goodie bag for Benjamin!!! I wish he had gone with me, but after 10-1/2 hours in the car, he chose swimming rather than following me to the class...can't blame him.
I got to meet Shirley, Jackie and Kristina, just a few of the Cupcake Crew and stamp with them a bit...man are they serious stampers!! I thoroughly enjoyed my short time with them, and if I was still in Roseville, I would steal them from Suzie...just sayin'...
When I returned to our motel, I walked in with the loot and Benjamin about passed out! There was a t-shirt, a dozen mini red velvet cupcakes and a half dozen of assorted full size cupcakes all wrapped up and packaged DARLING!! You know how we stampers ♥ our packaging!
We immediately had to have a sample platter of all the cupcakes, right?? To die for delicious! I've eaten a lot of cupcakes and cupcake shops are everywhere...well let me tell you, not all cupcakes are created equal! These are fabulous. If you are in the Roseville/Rocklin area, check out Icing on The Cupcake. They are also opening a store in Folsom and Sacramento soon!
We went to the cupcake store the next day and I bought cupcakes for my downline meeting, one to eat that night and one to take home in THE most darling little to-go boxes they provided, and I didn't even take a single picture! Dang me!
Shirley, thank you for your generosity and caring heart in making my little boy SO happy! I immediately whipped you up a cupcake card and put it in the mail! You're the best!!
