making cupcakes


Update: Recaps from Albany Jane and The Exile.

We're kicking off a little early this afternoon for the birthday party.

There are cupcakes to be eaten.


I wish I could be there, you guys. I'm so proud of you. I'm gonna keep my strep to myself, though.

i am so bummed i cannot be there. missing out on those cupcakes is killing me.

cup are indeed my favorite kind of cake

What a great party!! Congrats on 2 years and here's to many more (raising a glass)

They look incredible - enjoy!

I really enjoyed the party! Got to meet a lot of great people and the cupcakes were amazing!

Were those cupcakes made with the loving hands of Mary and Greg because they were de-licious.

@Kristi: They were made by the loving hands of Mrs. Greg and our awesome friend Megan.

I got stuck working late and missed more of the party than anticipated. I'd intended to try to talk to almost every single guest and failed miserably in my goal. My apologies to those I missed.

It was a great party and it was very nice to meet you, Mary. Thank you for the hospitality!

I loved the frosting on the chocolate cupcakes. The Midtown Tap and Tearoom food was outstanding too. Thanks AOA!
