Showgirls




I recently went to a book reading at Books of Wonder (cutest childrens book store), which is conveniently attached to the Cupcake Cafe. My sister, Lane, pointed out that it's like a Barnes & Noble, but for kids. So true.

I have visions and hopes and dreams and lay awake at night thinking about opening my own bake shop one day. If I ever do, I hope it's as awesome as this place is. Check out those cupcake showgirls -- I'm not sure what I love most -- the garters, the tutus, the seashell adorned stage, or the eyelashes! Their baked goods in the case look pretty good too -- not to be upstaged by their more flamboyant counterparts on the big stage!

I wanna be a dancing cupcake for Halloween now.

Cute! I want a cupcake to eat, too.

The eyelashes, that is my favorite part. Cupcakes doing the can-can...brillant!

Books of Wonder was a regular destination - and a perfect gift place. Practically ever book is signed by the author - and if you are into antique children books even better. Thanks for the pics - my mouth is wattering - because the cupcakes aren't too sweet either!

This place sounds like heaven on Earth for me. Children's Books + Cupcakes= TLA.
I wish I would have know about this place during my visit to NYC...I could have spent a whole afternoon there. The cupcakes look amazing.. the real ones AND the people ones.

OH MY GOSH! I am ROLLING right now! This place looks like it is right up my alley...treats AND life sized dancing cupcakes! You just made my day!

Having no kids, and basically knowing no kids (now that Angie, James and Chase are gone) I never had reason to visit Books of Wonder.

Now I wish I knew some just so I could go!

Jamie, you should also plug the illustrious Olivia Birdsall, author extraordinaire, for whom we went to Books of Wonder for her reading. Olivia is my friend and roommate, and her first book, "Notes on a Near-Life Experience" just came out. You can get it at Barnes and Noble (Or Books of Wonder :)

It's for teens, but funny and fresh and adults will like it too. Pam loved it.

Pam was quoting--or reading parts aloud to me, at least--when I had an sleepover at her house on Sunday.

Lane-
What is this nonsense about needing a kid to go to children's book stores? You practically are a kid still- at heart, and mind sometimes too. You bought a perfume because the bottle looked like a flying saucer. Need I say more?

Ashley, you crack me up. She also has a t-shirt with an ugly cupcake on it saying "Um-unna eatchoo" or something like that.
