Cupcakes Couture Manhattan Beach

So excited to shared today’s Surprise Giveaway with you… based on being able to share these delicious, mouth-watering dessert photos alone! This giveaway comes from the adorable Manhattan Beach based bakery: Cupcakes Couture, (whose work you might already have seen in your favorite bridal magazine/blog or on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars!).

Founded by Jenine Cravatt and Stephanie Franz, Cupcakes Couture provides “a designer’s experience to finding the perfect handcrafted dessert” – which is pretty apparent by just browsing their beautiful work! And this week at HWTM, they’re offering up a $100 Gift Certificate towards any wedding or celebratory cake! We all know how much things can start adding up when it comes to the budget for everything from a birthday party to a wedding, so this should definitely be a welcome addition to any party budget!
