Cupcake decor and supply websites I love

With so many websites on the Internet to purchase cupcake supplies from it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. In one year I have personally ordered from all the companies listed below. I wanted to share this with all of you because I know how frustrated I was when searching for specific things for Cupcake Jubilee! As a small business owner I have to use the products that are right for my business and my customers. Hopefully I can help you all by sharing this information.

By far, I think the most difficult item to find is the stainless steel cake stand with the acrylic cover. Sellers on offer it for sale but they sell it separately and its expensive. I could not see myself spending more than $15 on a cake stand.  (I have attached a picture of it below.) In my opinion its a great choice as far as cupcake stands are concerned because it's light weight and your customers can see whats inside. I'm in the process of searching for this item again as I need two more for my cupcake counter at the store. As soon as I find one at a great price I will definitely post it on here.

Cupcake Boxes & Stands (Nice and affordable stands) (Good selection.) (This is where I bought my acrylic display case) (I use this one all the time) (really cute gable boxes)

Decorations  (You need to open an account but really cute sugar decorations at great prices. I suggest to buy in bulk.)

If there is a website you thnk I should post on here please feel free to share it with us. :)

Easter Cupcakes

I'm a last minute person when it comes to holidays. Mostly its because I never look at a calender unless I'm catering an event and the reminder has been programmed into my cell phone. This year I promised myself that I would be more involved with the holidays. I want to being out the creative side and come up with something I don't usually do with cupcakes. (Unless of course its a special order.)

So with Easter right around the corner I took some time out and created TWO Easter cupcake creations. One is an Easter dozen. (available in Vanilla or chocolate cake) The other is a bunny cupcake takeaway cake. (Available in Vanilla or chocolate cake)

They are both available for pre-order for pick or delivery.
I like the bunny so much. Hope you all do as well. :)

Wedding Cupcakes for Wedding Season

You're probably really stressed out trying to plan your wedding, I completely understand. You have to order (if you haven't done so already) the flowers, invitations, bridal party gifts, decorations, dresses etc. The list can go on for ever and ever. However, the one thing you can scratch off your Bride-to-do-list is the dessert!

How? Easy... simply order cupcakes. :)

Cupcakes for a wedding can be customized to match your theme. And we have over 24 cupcake flavors which means instead of only being able to offer one cake flavor to your guests you can have as many as you want. You can even choose from a variety of cupcake sizes. We bake regular size cupcakes, minis or be adventurous and order both sizes for a real unique look on the cupcake tower.

Below I've attached the cupcake towers that we have on hand for your event.

Please contact us for cupcake tower rental information.

Low Calorie Cupcake Frosting

So, I was trying to figure out exactly how many calories my minis are..(For those calories counters out there.) And I was delighted to find a really easy to use website. It is

I entered the amount of butter, powdered sugar, etc. I use in my frosting and in less than a minute I was able to see exactly how many calories my vanilla buttercream frosting is PER SERVING!! And guess how much?? No really, guess.....

Only 14 Calories! Yup! Isn't that awesome?!?!  My goal is to have a 50 calorie cupcake so I believe I am on my way to achieving this goal. I will give you guys an update as soon as I figure it out. :)

Diva Cupcakes

Last week I was asked to bake a dozen regular sized cupcakes for a tween. Her mom was very specific and I was willing to comply with all the wishes. I was a little worried that I had not made it "Girlie" enough or that the maybe that it was too 7 year oldish. (Twelve year olds are hard to please. I should know since I have my very own tween.) However, all worries went right out the door when I stepped back and saw the finished product. Hoorah!!  You too can order your Diva cupcakes at
