I Heart Cupcakes!

I have started a new addiction... Cupcake Blogs. Just reading them makes me happy and fills my mental tummy. They seem to satisfy my love of cake and cute in one little hand-held bite. They have also enabled me to purchase the following items from Target.

I am in love with this new JUMBO line from Wilton... take a look at Wilton's site for the entire line of Jumbo Sprinkles... NEAT!

The sprinkles on the right are also by Wilton; but were made exclusively for Target. This entire line; paper plates, napkins... it's all amazing; really bright and colorful! Look for this exclusive line in the Easter section. The other stuff was from the kitchen section; Jumbo muffin tin, Jumbo cupcake liners and those nifty sprinkles.

Now on the subject of cupcake blogs; please visit these blogs on a full stomach! Be sure to tell 'em "Sarah and the Stampstars!" sent you!

Thanks for all the great cupcake sites! Just found a nice little bakery in East Dundee, IL called Piece A Cake. Awesome cinnamon and pecan rolls, bread pudding and sugar cookies. Their decorated cakes are a work of art.

I LOVE to bake but I rarely make cupcakes. I think I may have to get on the bandwagon though and start! When I was in New York City a few years ago - my friends and I stepped into a bakery and they had the MOST beautiful cupcakes I had ever seen - damned if I can remember the name of the shop though. Thanks for all the yummy links!

I moved from the Chicago suburbs to California 8 years ago and the 2 things I miss most are Chicago style pizza and Jarosh bakery! Now I'm home sick! Thanks a lot! :)
