Before I talk about how amazing these cupcakes are, I’m going to post the AmazonLocal deal that is currently running. In the past, these have sold out quickly, so I’d recommend for you to grab one right away. This is a great value & the best way for you to try out their amazing cupcakes without having to pay the full price. And I can guarantee you that you’ll want to go back again & again after you’ve had your first bite.

I cannot tell you how much I love the cupcakes at this place. I have to warn you, they are on the pricey side ($3.25-$3.50), but they’re totally worth it. They provide sweet treats that you can indulge in once in a while. They have fluffy frosting that is not overly sweet, moist cake & there’s always a bit of frosting on the inside. They decorate everything so beautifully, so it’s a great treat to bring to a housewarming or for a birthday.

They also make cake pops, cakes in a jar, French macarons, gorgeous custom designed cakes, couture dessert tables & many other sweet treats. The owner is super friendly & has a great work ethic. Everything she makes turns out gorgeous.

The cupcakes are named after some of the popular fashion designers.

My favorites include:

“the Louboutin” Red Velvet

Red velvet cupcake with their signature creamy frosting, which has a hint of almond oil in it.

“the Jimmy Choo” Pistachio
Pistachio cupcake with whipped pistachio frosting. Who doesn’t love a pistachio cake?!?

 ”the Versace” Tiramisu
Tiramisu cupcake, soaked with wine, espresso and coffee, frosted with creamy mascarpone frosting, topped with shaved chocolate. I am not a fan of alcohol or coffee, but when you put those 2 combinations in a cupcake, I’ll gobble it up in a second. This is probably my absolute favorite so far.

I’ve tried many of their other flavors as well, but those have to be my absolute favorite. You’ve never tasted cupcakes like these before. It’s definitely a must-try.

The store front is on the small side & there’s no room to sit in the store. You just order & leave. They are located next to the Golf store, right by the bus station. Make your way there, you will not regret it. Seriously, get the AmazonLocal deal now before it’s sold out. They’re so YUMMY!!!!

Cupcake Nail Art Tutorial

I have an obsession with small, cute things. I especially love cupcakes. They’re perfect for one person, with just the right amount of frosting & there’s just enough room to put some finishing touches, such as sprinkles & a cherry on top.

What’s cuter than a cupcake? Cupcakes on your nails! The process was fairly easy, but it’ll take some time for each layer to dry before moving on. I did put too much “frosting” on 2 of my nails, so it got mushed up when I went out. I’ll have to remember not to do anything until it’s completely dried.

1) I always take paper from the recycling bin (this was an Rite-Aid ad) to test out color combinations first. This makes it easier when it’s time to actually paint my nails because I already have an idea how it will come out. Plus, some colors just do not go well together.

2) Put on a clear base coat. Put on a bright coordinating color on your thumb, middle & pinky finger. (Revlon – Strength of Pink) Put on a neutral color on your index & ring finger to be used for the cupcake design. (Revlon – Sheer Nude)

3) Paint the cupcake liner across half of your nails. (O.P.I. – Yodel Me On My Cell)

4) Using a thin brush, create the vertical creases of the cupcake liner. (LA Colors Art Deco – Silver)

5) Paint a fluffy white dome on top of the cupcake liner. Try to not make this layer too thick. Unfortunately, mine was & it got mushed when I picked up my purse. (Wet n Wild Wild – French White Creme

6) Use a clear glitter nail polish to add the “sprinkles” on the “frosting.” (E.l.f. – Sparkles)

7) Use a Dotting Toolor a toothpick to create the “cherry” on top. Dip your tool into the polish color to create a circle. I used a toothpick to create the heart. Practice on paper first so you can get it perfect on your nails on the first try. (Nailtini – Mango Rita) When everything is completely dry, add a clear top coat.

This is possibly the cutest nail design I’ve done so far. I’m so happy with the way it came out. I’m sure I’ll go through all the colors of the rainbow to create more cupcakes in the future.

Hope you like this tutorial! ENJOY!
