What little boys wouldn’t LOVE this?
Pink, sparkles, toys, and candy….
Brinn loves it all!
And so do 15 and 16 year old boys playing poker in Bob’s “man room”. I had a bunch of orders to fill yesterday, and made these cupcakes for my girls, but it was actually Bryce’s gang of friends who gobbled up an entire dish of girlie cupcakes.
It’s difficult to find unique and cool candy around here, no joke. Another little secret about my business plan is that we’re going to try to offer some silly, quirky and cool candies because there’s really no candy shops (and when I say candy, I mean dots on paper, coke bottles, lemonheads- old school treats) like when I was a kid! And for a few cents, not for a mortgage payment.
Growing up, we were pretty lucky considering we lived in no man’s land on a little island, but we actually had three places you could ride your bike to buy ice cream and candy when I was Maeve’s age. One was at Bob’s uncle’s marina, one was at a store in the middle of the island, I can’t remember the name (was it Mesmer’s?) the ONLY place you could find garbage pal kid card packs, and last but not least was Kelly’s Country Store. Kelly’s is still there, and still sells the world’s most AMAZING sponge candy (dark chocolate orange, please!)
I was headed over to Sur la Table yesterday (I have a business account there, which rules! Go discount!) and popped into Dean & Deluca because they have a great candy assortment. Shaye nearly died when she saw LEGOS! (and the 3 pound rice krispie treat we also purchased)
and just for fun, look what year these came out, We WERE Maeve’s age!
