Monday was a GREAT DAY! I had not just one great Tweet Up, but TWO! A Military Wife Tweet Up and a Cupcake Tweet Up! Can’t beat that with a bat!
It started out with the Military Wife Tweet-Up with Katherine (@MissKatherine) and Erica (@HellcatBetty) down at the Starbucks by Fort Lewis. Great conversation, great women, great time!
Then it was up to Bellevue, WA for the Cupcake Meet Up! Jessica Stanley, owner of Rocket Queen Cupcakes in Albany, OR was in Seattle for a two week visit and wanted to tour a few of the cupcake shops she hadn’t been to yet! So I met up with Jessica and Carrie Middlemiss, owner of Bella Cupcake Couture, at New York Cupcakes where owner Lisa Waxman Johnson met with us!
I had never been into New York Cupcakes before, so this was a nice treat for me! Their cute, pink decor was perfect for the petite cupcake shop. Pink chandeliers, pink walls, pink fridge, pink cupcakes… everything was perfectly pink! Loved it!
Oh…. it was love at first sight with New York cupcakes. Oh just pure heaven. Firstly, let me tell you these are no small cupcakes. They are full size, full frosting, some even filled and topped deliciously perfect looking cupcakes! Great, original selection and some fun, seasonal flavors too!
These blueberry cupcakes…. were like the the moistest cupcakes I’ve ever had. It was like a muffin… on steroids. SO GOOD!!!
And here’s the 6-pack I brought home to my Dad and Daughter. No, I didn’t eat these myself!!
And of course… the reason for it all…. to meet these lovely ladies!! Jessica Stanley of Rocket Queen Cupcakes, ME! Betsy Eves of JavaCupcake, Lisa Waxman Johnson of New York Cupcakes and Carrie Middlemiss of Bella Cupcake Couture!
I’m definitely adding New York Cupcakes to my Top 3 Favorite Cupcake shops. I don’t know why I hadn’t been there before… but it was well worth the drive to Bellevue! The cupcakes are divinely delicious, the atmosphere is sinfully sweet and the owner… well Lisa is just fantastic and one of the sweetest women I’ve met in a long time! Make sure you stop by New York Cupcakes on your next visit to the Seattle area… you won’t regret it!!!
You can find all these lovely ladies on Twitter too!
