We had two birthday’s to celebrate this week. My brother-in-law Scott and his daughter (my niece) Katelyn. Scott and Katelyn share a birthday on October 13th…yep, that’s right…Katelyn was born on Scott’s birthday 15 years ago! How lucky Scott was to get such a wonderful birthday present-his first and only daughter!
We were planning on baking a cake from scratch, however, we decided on a whim to just go get a cake or cupcakes. We happened to be right near SMALLCAKES A CUPCAKERY, so we decided to hop in and check it out. It’s a small bakery in Suwanee, Georgia right near Lawrenceville.
USA TODAY listed Smallcakes as one of the Top Ten Cupcake Places to try in the country! So you know I had to try them out!
Here is Katelyn! I honestly can’t believe that she is 15.
She chose the Birthday Cake cupcake and it was loaded with sprinkles! A vanilla bean cupcake with vanilla frosting and lots and lots of sprinkles for the birthday girl!
We also got a couple of the Sinful Caramel cupcakes (so so so so good….one of those babies was mine-even came with caramel drizzle on top), a Cookies N Cream cupcake, a Snickers cupcake, and a Red Velvet cupcake! I’m very picky about my cupcakes. I’m a baker so I make my own cakes and cupcakes usually-I just love to make them from scratch. I have to admit the Sinful Caramel cupcake was one of the BEST cupcakes I’ve ever had in my life. SO GOOD! The cupcake was so moist and the caramel frosting was to die for and topped with a caramel drizzle…I was in heaven! Yum!
