I have been drawn to these images for some strange reason. Well alright, I admit it, I have a sweet tooth... but I know I'm not the only one out there with one, though.
Julian@Tallulah's Antique Closet
confessed he has one too. How about you?
I'm sure there's more of us out there :)

If you do have one, I know you will be
to see these images.

It's kind of making me want to run to the bakery

Actually, it's the perfect day and way to tell my FRIEND
Today is her big 50th Birthday
Hope, are you hiding from turning 50?
Don't be, you look marvelous, my dear!
I am wishing you a very HAPPY DAY!
...and as far as all of you sweet tooth-ers out there
we sure can have fun
of all of these
fantastic goodies!Don't they
look fabulous??!!!!
Cheesecake anyone?
I want to go to this party

or this one for that matter

Make a wish and enjoy your day
I hope you are enjoying a Red Velvet cupcake
or whatever floats your boat.
Maybe this will satisfy ALL OF OUR sweet teeth today!
Happy Birthday to you, Hope!!!!

Hi Gail, I have to go to the dentist right this minute! Becuase all that sugar is delicious. Great post Ive found a small bakery shop in Riverside that just makes cupcakes like thease and special coffee drinks. It is a cool little shop. The colors of the shop are pink and gray. Just too cute. It is at the Mission Inn. Thanks for sharing a great post today. I think I need to get my B-day slice today..Julian

Hey Gail...I will sample one of each...
I have to tell you I wish I could bake, well... I mean frost and create like these little pretties.

Maybe in my next life :) I will back instead of creating artful fancies.

By the way, to my surprise you have a paper crown posted, go look at my blog that has been on a couple of days I too have crowns made of paper posted as well...Don't you just love them??

See you soon!
