So, yes, I am a little late in bringing you some Easter cupcakes. And it’s going to be even later because I won’t have final pictures until tonight. But here are some sneak peeks:

That’s all you’ll get for now!

LOTS has been going on. My birthday was last Sunday and my husband and I took a trip to Vegas. LAS VEGAS – home of RETRO BAKERY! I am going to be honest here. Really the only reason why I wanted to go to Vegas was just to see Kari.

Retro Bakery!!!!

Honestly I could have left after that. It was such a FUN visit! Kari is just so fun and awesome and great and a wonderful cupcake maker. She is great with her customers, great with her employees. She is how I would want my shop to be. I could have stayed at her bakery all day long. And I almost did! LOL. Our visit ended up being 4 hrs and it wasn’t long enough. I could have stayed and closed shop with them. And by them I mean her kick ass cake making husband Brian.

He makes amazing cakes. I mean it!

Just look:

Ok back to Kari – we chatted, talked shop, I got to meet her two adorable kids Abbi and Lucy and got to meet her customers. I was ready to just move in. We talked as if we’d known each other for years. I also got to try out her cupcakes. Her delicious delicious cupcakes!

(in case your wondering, I pinched the tops of all the cupcakes off so I could taste the different buttercreams. I just couldn’t wait!)

If you are ever in Vegas, GO to her shop. You won’t regret it! They are THAT good.

So now I am counting down the days in my head when I can go visit again. Kari wrote a great blog about our visit which you can read here.

For the rest of the trip, my husband and I had a nice dinner at Mesa Grill, did some walking, gambled, lost, gambled a little more, won and did more walking. The weather was perfect, mid 60s, not too hot or cold. A bit windy (actually a lot windy). Nice to get a break and eat cupcakes someone else made for a chance.

We are heading down to San Diego this weekend to see the family and celebrate my birthday again with a wonderful sushi dinner at Harney Sushi in Old Town. Can’t wait!

Hope everyone has a hoppy Easter! Get it? Hoppy??

I crack myself up.

  1. WOW! I was just in Vegas a few weeks ago, and I had no idea about Retro Bakery. I’m so upset. I can’t wait to go back, just so I can go to the bakery. Their treats look amazing!

  2. Ah Jenny you lucky duck! Living near Old Town. It’s awfully touristy now though isnt it? I don’t ever remember it being like that before. Oh well. We still had fun!

    Kelsie – thanks! it was really fun. Yes Retro Bakery sells Tab. Isn’t that awesome! It tasted great!

  3. That looks delicious and fun! 🙂 And by the way, is that Tab you’re drinking?! Yummy!

  4. Cool! Have fun in San Diego! You’ll be right around the corner from me in old town, I’m just up the hill and a little way from there!
