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!

Don’t be afraid to try something new. Use the elements of autumn to your advantage with produce, nuts and twigs along with the many color tones of the earth and sky. Such a rich time to gather and inspire!

If you are anything like me, you may find yourself gazing into the television screen on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings during the well-liked American Idol season. No matter how much I despise what Simon Cowell says to the contestants, it always excites me to listen to each song and simply guess what he might say. However for all of the Simon fans out there, I’m sure you are also aware, and think highly of “The Simon Cowell of Dating”, Patti Stanger, The Millionaire Matchmaker.
Just to fill those of you in who are unaware of the reality show, Millionaire Matchmaker, on the Bravo TV Network, Patti Stranger is the host and the main individual to thank for finding the love of many individual’s lives. Working with each client on an individual basis through each step of the dating process, from the initial meeting through the marriage proposal, Patti incorporates her one-of-a-kind personality, humor, and harsh honesty to make the show interesting.
The Millionaire’s Club currently has over 30,000 women available for its members, catering to male and female members all around the globe. Millionaire’s Club’s contemporary approach offers a complimentary membership to women, working closely with leading psychologists, relationship counselors, date coaches, hypnotherapists and image consultants, as well as with a variety of top-notch personal trainers and hairstylists.
Whether a bride meets her groom with the help of a professional matchmaker, a friend or family member playing the role of matchmaker, or the old-fashioned way of two paths crossing, relationships may be a lot of work at times. But nurturing the relationship is what makes it more rewarding and in the end we are grateful for the man of our dreams that we marry, no matter how we were set up! At Kim King Smith Events we love meeting your “Mr. Right: and seeing you “live happily ever after”.
Though many of us former and future brides may wish we were/are millionaires, most of us will have to settle for just a few of Patti’s inside tips. Here are a three of her suggestions for women in search of “Mr. Right”, who happens to be a millionaire:
- “Eat at a steak house”, because men love to eat steak.
- “Retain Anonymity”. Go out to the restaurant by yourself, bring a good book, and then smile his way to signal him over.
- “Be receptive”. If he gives you his number and asks you to call him, then follow up; but if you don’t feel comfortable doing this, then beat him to the punch line and make him do the work.
