Cookies and Cupcakes... Oh Yum!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Remember last week when I stopped by the cupacke bakery and asked if they would display a rack of my cards?  Well, I never heard back from them.  Sooooo today, I went back to their adorable store with my card rack, sign and 50 cards.  And guess what....?  They said YES!!!  How cool is that?!  I'm so excited!  After I set up the cards in the rack, I went back to my van to get the sign.  By the time I came back, someone was buying one of my cards!!  So I want to give a shout out to the two bakeries that are selling my cards.

The cupcake bakery is called The Frosted Muffin.  Their fun and funky hot pink shop is located at 108 South Church Street in Visalia, CA.  They are open Tuesday thru Saturday and offer a different cupcake menu everyday.  A friend of mine said the Tiramisu on Tuesdays is to die for!  Other yummy sounding flavors are Pink Champagne, Butterfinger, Pineapple Upside Down, and Caramel Apple.  The owner is Tamara Doyal and their phone number is 559.786.2886.  Here's a little photo collage I did after my exciting day:

Isn't their shop fabulous?!  I love the fuschia and black.  Located at the same shop is Gourmet Desserts and Wedding Cakes by Shelly.  She decorates incredibly beautiful wedding cakes in scrumptious flavors like chocolate truffle, mudslide and lemon swirl.  To contact Shelly call 559.318.7658

For the last year I've been fortunate to have my cards featured at Goodies Cookies and Specialty Cakes located in the Martha's Vineyard Shopping Center at 1631 East Noble Avenue in Visalia.  Owner Natalie Fronczek is the funniest, friendliest cookie baker in the world!  They do some amazing things in this quaint little shop.  I've seen flip flop cookies, alligator cookies and a cake that looked like a Tiffany's box.  You can reach them by calling 559.625.4663.  Here's a little peek into their cozy bakery:


Don't you just love the red and white theme?  Reminds me of an old-fashioned candy store.  And their cookies are as good as they look.  I love their snickerdoodle cookies.  My daughter always chooses the chocolate chip cookie with M&Ms.  And their cookies are big enough to feed two!  They make the cutest cookie "bouquets".  They not only look fabulous, they also taste YUM-O!

So if you are ever in the Tulare/Visalia/Hanford area.  Make sure to stop by the Frosted Muffin for a cupcake and Goodies Cookies for a cookie. And remember to buy a unique, hand-crafted card from both shops!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Good for you on your chutzpah - I hope your cards fly off the rack!
