cupcake invitations

Even though I am not really on the cupcake bandwagon, I couldn't resist these delightful invitations from the always amazing Betsy Dunlap. As much as I hate to admit it, a cupcake party does sound very fun + very pretty! Photo is better, bigger.

P.S. I feel like a grouch admitting that I don't really like cupcakes. I think they are pretty and taste yummy. I am just a little weary of the very long trend.

  1. I’m with you on the cupcake trend. Granted, cupcakes are super cute and I am always tempted to make them because of all the fun things you can do with the icing.

    But then I think long and hard and realize I don’t really love icing so that would be a really silly reason for me to make them 🙂

    Hope everything is going well!

  2. these invitations are so great. i have to admit, i do like a good cupcake, and i can kind of understand why they are so popular. but. . . you know, yeah. the trend keeps trending.

  3. Cute invite! I just love cupcakes..while i do agree the “trend” is getting a bit old, there’s just something about enjoying a delish cupcake!

  4. i have to admit that i cannot really understand referring to cupcakes as a trend at all. they have been around and are not going anywhere. they are cute and convenient. there’s no reason to turn back. would you call popsicles a trend?

  5. Hey Nicole. I totally get what you are saying. I am referring to the abundance of magazine articles, books, blog posts, retail shops + chains, and products all dedicated to cupcakes! These have only popped up within the last few years. I think cupcakes are cute.. I am just a little tired of hearing about them. But, to each their own , right?

  6. these are cute and i agree with you on the cupcakes.
    i actually just said it on my blog too.
    what bad bloggers we must be.

    oh and i also don’t really like regina spektor. :/

  7. aww, poor little cupcakes! i think they are the perfect treat! easy to take on the go and pretty dang cute. my heart will always belong to cupcakes…but hey, apparently whoopie pies are the new hot thing. i’ve never even heard of those before!

  8. I agree- I opened a bakery with the intention of doing all types of pastries and pies, cakes and cookies, and all I ever get is “You own a bakery? Oh, can you do cupcakes for me?” I mean, they have their place, but there are other things in this world! =)

  9. Ha ha, I have been SO OVER cupcakes for a long time. But I have never been a fan of cake anyway. They have cupcake vans in NYC, like ice cream trucks. Weird!
