Don’t deny it, we all have a list of favorite television shows that we watch every week. One of my new favorites is The Cupcake Girls. I tune in every Tuesday night. The Cupcake Girls is a great show for me because I have such a sweet tooth and so every time I watch it I want to bake! Good thing I resist the urge pretty well or else I might be overcome with enough desserts to last me a year. The Cupcake Girls is about the trials and tribulations of Cupcakes by Heather and Lori, a nostalgic cupcake franchise in the USA and Canada. Heather White and Lori Joyce are the co-owners of Cupcakes by Heather and Lori and the show tells the story of their rise in the cupcake world. It’s got everything. It has charm, whit, and cupcakes, with a lot of business savvy.
I am telling you about The Cupcake Girls to recommend that you watch the show of course, but also to fill you in on why cupcakes are so happening. Cupcakes are like little bundles of joy. They are just as delicious as a full cake, but in a better serving size, and you can get so creative with them. Yes cakes have the same ability, but it’s a little unusual to see a mound of cupcakes instead of one large cake. Cupcakes are becoming so popular because they are unexpected.
I am a creative person and so I see so many possibilities when I think about serving cupcakes instead of one big cake. You can use cupcakes as the main dessert display at any event. Birthday parties, graduation parties, anniversary parties, and even weddings are all great places to serve the little cups of heaven. You can try new flavor combinations, get a little artsy with the icing, or try a new display method. For example, you can line up your cupcakes and spell words with the icing as if it were a puzzle. For a birthday or graduation party you can spell out HAPPY BIRTHDAY or any sort of congratulatory message. You can mix icing colors and designs to create your own original cupcake to match any theme or color scheme. As a bride and groom, think about serving a tower of cupcakes instead of layers and layers of cake that would take forever to cut. Contact us here at Kim King Smith Events and we can assist you with your cupcake craze! We would suggest keeping the tradition alive though, by getting one small layer of cake for the bride and groom to cut and then having a crafty cupcake display for the rest of your guests. No need for volunteer cake cutters, the guests can come and pick up their individually wrapped dessert as they please.
Now if you still want to cling on to the idea of one big cake, consider a cupcake cake. Now you can buy new baking pans that are shaped like an oversized cupcake and matching icing topper. These pans make for an unusual cake that can add a little surprise to the party. Nobody will be expecting one gigantic cupcake! So whenever you want to be that person at the party that always brings the best looking and best tasting dessert, think cupcakes!

We were fortunate to be asked to attend the prom this year! It was thrilling to receive the invitation to coordinate and design the Owen Valley High School Junior Senior Prom 2011. This would be the first year ever that the prom would be held enitrely at the school.
To make it extra special, we went to work with fundraising events that gave the prom committee the extras they needed for a great prom. Tons of news releases, special posters and the creation of the Extreme Pancake Breakfast plus Little Prince and Princess Contest for a new event, the Grand March, paid off.
We had our work cut out for us and enjoyed every single second! Transforming the gymnasium into an elegant ballroom was so much fun. Special lighting and gobo from Evans Audio Visual www.evansav.com transformed the room as the DJ kept EVERYONE ON THE FLOOR the entire night! We’ve never seen anything like it and were thrilled the attendees were having such a great time plus completely exhausted from dancing so much! The sweets bar was a special treat along with the decorated tables and fabulous entry way.
The prom didn’t stop there. Our coordination and partnership of the Post Prom had everyone taking their chances on fun and gifts. A DJ, casino room, refreshments and prizes all kept the attendees there until the very last minute; just in time to take a ‘breakfast to go bag” with them.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Owen Valley Junior Class and parents. We already have some great ideas for next year!
