Brought to you by the letter "J" and the number "2"!

This past week was a very special little girl's birthday. Julia turned 2 and we had the pleasure of making cupcakes for the little princess! Julia is a huge Sesame Street and Elmo fan, so we made adorable Elmo cupcakes, and in true Sesame theme we made the letter "J" and the number "2". The cupcakes were a hit with both the kids and the parents! So happy we could be a part of the occassion!

And here's a closer look...

We love these! Our new favorite! :)

‎'Tis the season! Calling all brides! Need wedding favor/bridal party gift/candy bar ideas? The Sweet Bites can help! Leave your guests wanting more with a sweet treat to celebrate your special day!

I recently had my own wedding and used cake pops as favors for guests and people couldn't get enough! They were a HUGE hit! I also opted for a "treat table" rather than just a cake table. Cakes can be super expensive so we saved money by getting a smaller cake and adding delicious mini treats to the table. The Sweet Bites made mini red velvet (my favorite) cupcakes, and our guests ended up liking those more than the fancy cake!

I also used cake pops as the bridal party gifts. I bought wine glasses for the girls and beer mugs for the boys and personalized them with glass paint. Then I made matching cake pops and put them inside of the glasses and mugs. I spent under $100 (on 11 people!) and the gifts were SO cute!

Here's some pictures of our big day and other samples! :)

Fourth of July

Yay for sun, BBQ, friends, family, and CUPCAKES! We love July 4th weekend!

This year we went back to the basics with red velvet cake topped with white cream cheese frosting and blue berries. Sometimes the most simple things are the most delicious things!
Hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend. No drinking and driving! :)
