I hope everyone else enjoyed the Oscars this past Sunday - I thought Ellen did a great job, and there were so many fun moments throughout the show. On that day, Georgetown Cupcake offered a Red Carpet Red Velvet cupcake as their free secret flavor, which is their red velvet cupcake with a celebrity-sized gold fondant star on top, haha. This was a cute twist on a regular menu item to celebrate the end of awards season!

I love the new Winter Flowers collection of stamps that recently came out - how pretty! For someone like me that sends cards out year-round, these are a pretty transitional stamp between the holidays and spring/summer. And yes, I do tend to use specific stamps at certain times of the year, haha. If you're a fan of flowers, or of pretty stamps in general, make sure to pick up a sheet or two!

I always love Georgetown Cupcake's holiday-specific cupcakes, and this year's Valentine's day cupcakes were no exception. Here we have the XO Vanilla cupcake, which consists of a "classic Madagascar vanilla cupcake with baby pink buttercream and XO fondant".
There was also an XO chocolate version, but for that day I decided on just the vanilla. The buttercream frosting is thicker than the standard cream cheese-based frosting, but the vanilla flavor is delicious as expected. This was a super cute way to celebrate Valentine's day, especially for anyone that loves the color pink!
