Happy New Year 2012

This is officially the second year that MCC has been in the works. 
It feels like it was only yesterday that the MCC cupcake was trying to crawl its way to a dessert table -- now look at ya, all glamified with glistening sugar crystals and a themed wrapper to match....oh how they grow!

This year has jumped off to a great start. 
I've got a few events lined up already and there's one that I'm super excited about.
MCC will be in Hockessin on Feb.12,2012 to help support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. If you're interested in donating now, please click here or join us that Sunday at the Hockessin Memorial Hall in DE from 11a.m-3p.m for live music, raffles, auctions, games, and plenty of vendors. 

Fundraisers are the best. I've actually been thinking about throwing an event to benefit a charity, so if anyone is interested in partnering up, I'd love to hear from you!

Sooo, I don't know if you've noticed a small trend that I've started for myself, but every new year I try to do something a little different. I've tossed ideas out there all year long, but I want to do something that I'll stick to -- kind of like an upgrade. Based on my research, I've found that one of the hardest things to do is to ship a cake, especially an awesome couture cake. But it can be done, only the cake wouldn't be frosted, which has it's pros and cons. You wouldn't get the full affect of the fashionably frosted cupcake BUT, you would get a chance to beautify the cupcakes yourself, or with family and friends. Sound interesting? Okay, so say I ship the cupcakes, and in the box is a jar of the frosting of your choice along with a small spatula or piping bag, and maybe some sprinkles or jimmy's? Hmmm. I think it sounds cool. So this year, that will be my newest venture.  Shipment. Yes I know I've talked about it before, but this time I'm sitting on the solid foundation of a magical idea. And yes ... magic is a solid foundation.
