Birthday gift ideas!

You all know that I am head over heels in love with Jessie's art work, right?! I mean, I have a bunch of original and custom works from her and if you know me, my jean jacket always has a Cuppie pin (or 2 or 3) on it!

I recently purchased this adorable cupcake tote for my friend's B-day! I filled it with lots of baking cups! Leopard print, polka dot, stripes, you name it! I also added two of my favorite ingredients for my cupcakes, vanilla bean paste by Nielsen Massey & pure butter vanilla extract. Awesome to swirl into frostings and batters. I find the vanilla bean paste to be a great alternative to vanilla beans and way less expensive!

Check out this adorable card available at the Cakespy store! This card was a big hit for the Birthday girl and it also got a lot of laughs at the party! Too cute! Perfect for that friend that loves baking just as much as we do!


  1. Hi! I just wanted to post a quick thank you for the mention as one of your favorite ingredients. Your flavors sound wonderful and the photos really portray your beautiful work well!

  2. Matt,

    I only use your exceptional extracts when baking. It truly makes a difference when you use the best ingredients! I absolutely LOVE your Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla and Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste.

    Thank you very much for visiting my blog! It's an honor! Have a great day!
