Origin of the Cupcake name:
You’re probably wondering why someone who rarely bakes or indulges in the aforementioned sweet treat would call herself Mrs. Cupcake. To give you the full history of the name, you have to understand that 1) Mr. Cupcake is a pretty thoughtful guy and 2) He has a huge sweet tooth.
Let’s go back to 2007, when Baby Cakes was just a sprinkle, er, twinkle in our eyes. We had just started dating that summer and I began my first teaching job. My birthday happens to be in September, and to my disappointment, my stud muffin of a boyfriend told me that no, he doesn’t buy flowers for girls (true story…I can count on one hand how many times he’s given me flowers). Imagine my surprise when he strolled right on into my classroom with 2 dozen homemade cupcakes, one in which he even decorated with a little icing flower. Cute, right? Well, this act of courtship really left him wide open to be made fun of by fellow teachers as well as his friends who thought he was trying too hard. Thus, he became “Cupcake” and it really stuck. It’s a fitting name, as my jolly guy enjoys indulging his sweet tooth with one of these delectable treats. Once we got married, we became Mr. and Mrs. of course. We even commemorated the event by brewing our own beer. Cupcakes and Beer…Delicious!
