National Cupcake Day and 2020 Cupcake and Bakery of the Month


If you know me, you know that I absolutely love the single serving cake baked in a paper or aluminum cup and topped with icing or other cake decorations! Yes, cupcakes!

I loved cupcakes before they were trendy. Cupcakes are absolutely my favorite dessert.

  • Fun Fact: National Cupcake Day is December 15th
  • Fun Fact: Vanilla Cupcake Day is November 10th
  • Fun Fact: Chocolate Cupcake Day is October 18th

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. Because of the coronavirus pandemic I have been unable to add new states to my travel list. It’s been a lot harder to select and visit bakeries during a global health pandemic (that I feel are following proper health precautions). Nonetheless, you can follow my cupcake journey by following these hashtags on Instagram
