Best Cupcakes In NJ aside from my own lol



I've been to alot of cupcake places in NJ and and theres only one that i truely think is amazing.
That's Sweet Ave Bake shop in rutherford .
Now i'm not a vegan and most vegan cupcakes to be blunt taste disgusting to me but these are so good if you never told me i would't know the difference.
They have a plethora of flavors and all the ones ive tried are fantastic my favorite is the snowball its a coconut one i love coconut.
I've been to alot of cupcake places rave about to sadly be let down for instance Mr.Cupcakes their cupcakes are blah and they decorate them like a 5 year old made them lol but aside from my own cupcakes i would say these are the best in Nj

The Perfect Pedestal Cookware.com Review



I got the pleasure to work with cookware.com in offering you guys the cupcake pan giveaway but i also got something in the mail to review i even got to pick.






I'm always looking for cake/cupcake pedestals to display my cupcakes and this ones perfect its very simple not overly decorated which i like it has that simple elegance feel and i can dress it up for different holidays or events so its versatile and its super sturdy. I had bought round ones before that i thought i got a deal on but the base cracked off and split in two after a few uses.



I would recommend this to anyone esp those who throw alot of parties or events you can even use this for little appetizers if you want.



Here is the site photo


And here's my photo i made special cupcakes just to use in the pictures lol

Thank you so much cookware.com for this opportunity !

Vanille Patisserie Macarons!




Yesterdat was one of those exciting mail days i got a box of Macarons from Vanille Patisserie in Chicago . I got them in a swap trade on swap-bot i was so excited to open them up and try some.


There was a whole bunch of flavors and i didn't know which was which so i had to break them open to figure it out. These macarons were defintaly made the right way ive had some really bad ones before the texture and size was just right. The only thing is I'm the worlds pickiest eater so i didn't really like any of the flavors but they are really good .


If your in the area i would advise to stop in and pick up some treats they also sell chocolates and assorted tarts and cakes and you can order online to.


I'm also in the works of finding a shop to do a macaron giveaway for all of you guys here on my blog so stay tuned for that!

A note to my gift basket winners and other followers please read

I normally don't talk about my problems on here i don't really like to i wanna keep my blog on a happy note but in the past few weeks that ive taken off to relax and work on new projects i haven't had much time to relax I've been absolutely miserable and stressed about alot of things and top of this i just ran into a finical block and I'm struggling to get by . I just found out one of my friends is sick and this week i have to get her something to cheer her up and bring to her when we go see her in the hospital. Then i come home today and read my email telling me a customer filed a chargeback with the credit company to my paypal account on a 2 part order she got her first order and said she never got the second one i still don't know what happened to it but i spent 3 days working on that order and now i have that on my plate as well.
So bear with me if I'm suppose to ship anything to you everything will be shipped out Jan 28th when i get my check for an upcoming wedding order.

Now to the gift basket winners Thank you again for the last item for the basket got shipped to the wrong address so it just finally got me so I have all the baskets put together so Jan 28th they will be shipped priority to all of you . Also i used a separate paypal account and it got hacked into and they changed all my info when i tried to fix it and change the password paypal told me since the info was changed and i couldn't confirm the new info i couldn't change my password so i got emails saying the money for the raffle tickets were sent back to anybody that bought them . All the money i spent on the packages for wishupon a hero was out of pocket and i was going to use it to reimburse for it but oh well i still got the packages so that's all that really matters . I got messages that made my heart melt from the people i sent them to. I just wanna say an extra thank you to anybody that entered . You can check your paypal the money will probably be in there.
ps i Hate paypal lol

When Monday comes ill be back to my normal happy post i just wanted to let you guys know what was going on .
