You already know how much I love Cupcakes!
I don’t need a special occasion to eat them, but since December 15th is National Cupcake Day and since cupcakes are my favorite dessert, I couldn’t resist celebrating them today.
How much do you love the single serving cake baked in a paper or aluminum cup and topped with icing or other cake decorations?
Fun Fact: Chocolate Cupcake Day is October 18th
Fun Fact: Vanilla Cupcake Day is November 10th
National Cupcake Day was commemorated by taking pictures of the delicious dessert and posting them on social media using the hashtag #NationalCupcakeDay
If you follow me on social media, you know that each month I have a cupcake from a different bakery. You are probably also aware that when I travel, I try to find a new bakery in that location. Small things mean a lot!
I’ve eaten cupcakes in Washington, DC and 16 of the 19 states where I’ve traveled. You can follow my cupcake journey by following these hashtags on Instagram: #NickiLovesCupcakes #cupcakeofthemonth #bakeryofthemonth
