I have always loved to bake. There is something so soothing, meditative and mood-lifting about whipping together sugar and flour to craft sweets that will no doubt make someone else smile (or to treat myself with). I’m happy to let someone else cook a meal (acting as excellent and entertaining company in the kitchen) but when it comes to baking, I want to roll up my sleeves myself and get to it. My brothers claim I know how to bake cookies to the precise perfect goo-iness and I delight in the careful smoothing of frosting on a cake or the saccharine repetition of decorating cupcakes. Its not difficult to connect baking and decorating, as both are such visual, creative endeavors. So when I saw these Imperial Trellis cupcake wrappers on the amazing site Bake It Pretty I was over the moon!
Then I started looking around and found all these fabulous designer cupcake wrappers sure to please the baker/design junkie.
I have always said that in my next life I want to own a small bakery. I know I’m romanticizing it, but it just sounds like such a lovely, charming way to spend your days. Baking goods, serving coffee (my other favorite thing), engaging with customers, maintaining a shop….. especially if the shop looked like this one- Enjoy Cupcakes in California. It’s as if someone peered into my head and built the exact bakery I would design for myself. I am completely enchanted!!!
As if that wasn’t enough, they also have a vintage “cupcake trailer” which can be brought to events, weddings and other outdoor events. Read their blog if you want to make yourself completely drool over their incredible creations.
