I recently came across the cutest effing cupcake (I tried to write “fucking cupcake” but that just seemed a little extreme, even for this Potty Mouth) ever and it started me on this eye-candy search for all things cupcake and then I started finding all these incredibly quirky and fun cupcakes, so of course, I had to share them ALL. I mean, as a trend, I do believe cupcakes are here to stay. Agreed? Yeah. It’s pretty much anything goes these days: cupcakes, candy buffets, cookies, pies. If it’s sweet, consider it wedding-able as a traditional cake stand-in or as an extra sumpin’ sumpin’ - if you’ve got the budget! And why not have them just for the cake of it (sorry)?
