Anyone else craving Cupcakes?

Yes, I’ve been craving cupcakes lately and I have no idea why. It must be the holiday season! I also want to plan a fun cocktail list to try at this year’s family get-together {that shall be a separate post}.

Anyway, back to my cupcake craving, my local fave in the San Francisco Bay Area is Kara’s Cupcakes, i love that they sell mini cupcakes + their cake is super moist.  I would really like to try Sibby’s Cupcakery in San Mateo, but they are an appointment/order only bakery {I need to host a party soon so I can order the Sibby’s Sampler}.

{once upon a time…my old biz-partner, karin, made these cupcakes shown above. maybe she remembers the flavors, but oh how I want one now!}

Honestly, I should really find time to bake my own cupcakes, but which recipe do I choose? Frostings too? help!

Ok, maybe I’ll make a stop today to get my quick fix at the  Vanilla Moon Bakery in San Carlos {after I meet my client to drop off her ceremony programs of course} …wait, come to think of it, the dessert table for her San Francisco Presidio wedding this weekend will be set with cupcakes from That Takes The Cake {check out the creative cupcake names + their Cocktail Cupcakes}!   I have not been to this bakery yet, so that’s that, I’m definitely stopping by this turkey weekend since we’ll be hanging out downtown in the Marina /Union Street area! Done.

>> below are a few cupcake blogs with helpful info on finding a local cupcake shop along with some unique recipes too. Please let me know {& the bloggers} if you have a favorite local shop that is not listed. You should give those mom-n-pop shops a shout-out so everyone near by can stop by to relieve their cupcake craving too!
