give a man a cupcake

cruising around the boulder farmers market saturday with tara we stopped by an adorable cupcake stand. they were packaging their mini cupcakes in stamped egg cartons! being a sucker for good marketing, i stopped to chat about what they were up to.
turns out the boulder shelter started a program that teaches people to bake, then sells these gourmet cupcakes at the farmers market-sending all the proceeds back to the shelter.

i was in love. the idea was amazing. the people at the bfm were so excited to be a part of it and so proud of the work they had done. they call the cupcake business street fare, and they will also do custom orders for cakes, cupcakes...you name it, they'll bake it! plus, you can feel better about eating too many when the money is going toward a worthy cause.

sugar high anyone?
