Cupcake Addiction

2011 May Be Gone, But My Cupcake Addiction Isn’t

Posted on: January 23, 2012

You do not need to pinch yourself. You are not dreaming. I am actually writing in my blog! But seriously, it’s not my fault that 2011 was here and gone in a day! Let me tell you a little bit about my crazy year, and I think you’ll understand why writing about cupcakes was put on hold.

Let’s see… it was January 2nd, and I was starting the year off right – just went to a great cupcake place in Tampa, FL and was eating my delicious strawberry cupcake like there was no tomorrow. For me, there pretty much was no tomorrow. Six days after that trip to the cupcake shop in Tampa, my boyfriend of almost five years proposed! The next month, I took a new job as the Marketing Coordinator at North Florida Regional Medical Center (loving it, by the way), and by August 13, I was a married woman! I can’t wait to show all of you my amazing cupcake wedding cake! That will have to wait until another post, but I am sure none of you are surprised by my cupcake wedding cake choice.

As I said when I started off this post, my cupcake addiction is still going as strong as ever. Here are some photos of some of my favorite cupcake memories from 2011 (all made by yours truly).

Strawberry Jelly Cupcakes for My Friend Allison's Surprise Baby Shower

Chocolate Funfetti Birthday Cupcakes

Homemade Roasted Banana Cupcakes

Lemon Cupcakes With Lemon Buttercream Icing

Easter Cupcakes!

While last year was incredibly busy and went by way too fast, it was still a year filled with lots of delicious cupcakes. I enjoyed every last bite of 2011, and I can’t wait to see what 2012 will bring.

Stay tuned for more updates from 2011 including highlights from my Walt Disney World Wedding!

Lauren, we love your blog, and we share your affection for delicious cupcakes. That’s why we opened a new cupcake shop in the Haile Village Center, called Patticakes. If you have never been, we would like to give you a free cupcake or two, just for visiting us. Cheers! David and Jan.

Jan and David, Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I plan on doing a better job on keeping it active in 2012. I have actually visited Patticakes a couple of times! A cupcake place in Gainesville can’t be here too long without me knowing about it, given my addiction 🙂 I would love to come by at another time and take you up on your offer, however, so I can do a whole post on Patticakes (if you don’t mind).

We definitely wouldn’t mind – just let us know when.
