One day last summer I was out at Just a Bed of Roses in Farmington, Utah doing a little shopping... (ok, I was doing ALOT of shopping!) I had my eye on some yummy looking miniature cupcakes that were out on a pretty vintage platter. Brenda, the shop's owner, puts out little plates of goodies for her customers to nibble on while they are shopping. I was trying to decide if I wanted a chocolate one or a white one. Since I usually spend a couple of hours there, I decided to take one of each. Just then the cutest young lady walked in the door and Brenda excitedly called out "the cupcake lady!" I must have felt guilty taking "two" so I quickly set them back down.
I started eavesdropping on their conversation...no, actually I just plain stood right there and listened to it. It was then that I realized this cute young lady was the one who made these scrumptious looking little pretties. What I didn't know was they were faux cupcakes, even the frosting that looked like it had just been whipped up!
Soon Brenda introduced me to Jenni B. Turns out Jenni is originally from Utah, in fact, I went all through school with her dad, Ted. (I had a secret crush on him in junior high, all the girls did! I am not good at keeping secrets, but I kept that one until I told Jenni that day!)
I knew I must buy some of these adorable little cupcakes, so I picked out five of them, assorted colors and "flavors". Jenni is as sweet as her cupcakes, she signed the bottom of each one "To Julie, JenniB." She even signed the cute little cupcake tag on my vintage cake dome you see in the photo of my precious little cupcakes! Then, I found out Jenni taught MARTHA STEWART how to make these! Wow! A beautiful celebrity right from my own hometown! You can go to Jenni's site at http://www.jenniboriginals.com/ and see Jenni in action on the show! On her site you can also read about something really special she is planning for later this year...
The day I met Jenni B... It's a Good Thing!!! (Sorry Martha, I just HAD to say that... you don't OWN that or anything, do you ???)...
