I’ve never even heard of Blackberry Velvet, but that will be my based. As far as decorations go, I will go with that funky alien with three eyeballs. :-)

Ryan Schneider SAYS:

From the 1st time I was invited to visit Cupcakes Couture, I feel like I haven’t been able to find another cupcakery that can match up to the precedence that has been set. My first two visits, I tried about 8 different cupcakes and yelped like crazy about them. 2 years later, I still can’t find another comparable bakery that maintains the friendliness, creativity and deliciousness of their product. I have been wanting to have Jeannie help me create a cake for my birthday and with this giftcard, I would be able to finally do it! Then, finally all my friends and coworkers at my party will understand why I rave crazily about this place! :)

Of course, my beautiful daughter, who turns 13 on her next birthday, would create a masterpiece cake design! Her passion has always been an artisitc approach to everything, and she ahs a flair for the unexpected. We regularly walk to downtown MB to eat out, and she often persuades us to get a cupcake at Cupcake Couture! She marvels at the skill involved in molding sugars and colors and forms onto a super-delicious cake!
