This really is the cutest thing

Could merchandise be in the future for Red Velvet Armadillo Bakeshop?

I went out to my mailbox today, expecting the usual assortment of bills, statements and catalogs, and what do I find but an envelope from my friend, D.

I open it up to reveal this absolutely adorable tank that she made for me.

On the front, a sparkly cupcake and the phrase "and I bake"

On the back?

"Red Velvet Armadillo Bakeshop"

Truly, it's the most wonderful gift. I love it!

Thanks, D! We're going to have to pow-wow about the possibilities here. :)

Happy Graduation!

To celebrate a high school graduation, three tiers of yummy cake, shaped into text books and a graduation cape.

The bottom layer is vanilla with fresh strawberry filling, the middle is strawberry with cream cheese filling, and the cap is a marble cake with chocolate frosting and filling.

Best wishes to T, the happy graduate! We hope you had a great party!

Neopolitan Cupcakes

I love getting to surprise people, and so when K told me she liked the basics (vanilla, chocolate & strawberry), I came up with this perfect combination of the three for her birthday party.

Just like the traditional neopolitan ice cream, these cupcakes are layered with chocolate vanilla and strawberry cake and topped with little bursts of frosting in the same flavors.

Simple, classic and delicious.

($2.25/cupcake; minimum order one dozen)
