"Cupcakes are the perfect food - they're darling to look at, you don't need utensils, and you don't have to share."
Mia Bauer, co-owner of New York City's Crumbs Bake Shop
Teen Vogue is always full of a plethora of amazing ideas, and the February 2009 issue is no different. Not only is Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf herself) the featured cover girl, but one article in particular has left me in dire need of a full-blown sugar rush.
"Sweet Dreams" is the party idea of my...well, dreams. Cupcakes and fashion go together like Oreo cookies and milk. Perhaps it has something to do with the fashionable Marie Antoinette and her legendary "let them eat cake" quote, or the devotion that Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw always displayed towards New York City's Magnolia Bakery. No matter what, it's just a given. You can't have fashion without cupcakes, or cupcakes without fashion.
Which is why this Valentine's Day I will be trading in my Juicy Couture mittens for oven mitts as I have...A Cupcake Affair. There will be lace and bows, headbands and tights, capelets and pillbox hats, high heels and high fashion. And, most importantly, lots and lots of cupcakes!
