Happy Easter!!

How adorable are these little Easter basket cuppies, made by our little cousins Marissa, Francesca and Adrianna! The brown strips you see on top were tootsie rolls that were serving as handles. Unfortunately...they melted.

Hope everyone had a wonderful day:)

Odd Cupcake News

This is pretty stupid. And not funny. But yet cupcake-related.

I'm in a bad mood this dreary Sunday, in case you can't tell.

Do you have any other odd-ball cupcake lore related stories to share?

Don't forget to enter our DinaCakes giveaway. Last day...

My fiance and I (and hopefully a few others that I can guilt into it) will be walking an SPCA walkathon.

Our goal is to raise $500. If you can contribute, please do, any little bit helps.

You can sponsor us at THIS LINK.

DinaCakes Giveaway!

A week or so ago, we featured this awesome cake, made by a local NYC metro self-made baker, Dina, of DinaCakes!

We were so impressed that we decided we absolutely had to offer up a giveaway of her amazing goods. Unfortunately, we can only offer it to those living in the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut).

If you are a resident, just leave a comment below this post...and of course MAKE SURE that you're a follower of The Road to Sweetness AND "Like" DinaCakes on Facebook (we WILL be checking!!) and you'll be in the running to win two dozen cuppies from Dina. We'll keep it open for one week. 

The option to become a follower of the Road to Sweetness is on the left hand side of this page.

The giveaway will be closed on Sunday at midnight. On April 11, we'll pick a winner at random and announce it at noon. Wouldn't you like to have a few of THESE show up at your door?

Good luck!
