About Me

I am a second-career teacher. In my other life, I crunched numbers as an accountant. Probably would have made a great math teacher had the thought occurred to me. No matter, I'm where I'm supposed to be; teaching third grade. Before that, 2nd grade and before that kindergarten. I have 2 grown daughters, 2 poodles, and 1 hubby. I live and work on Long Island.

Magnolia's Classic Cupcakes
and-delivered by my daughter, who is their
Public Relations Manager

There's something about the cupcake that suggest….PARTY!

They create a mood…..a festive ambiance.

Whether you prefer the cake part..

or you love the icing,

cupcakes spell fun.

I am so grateful to those gals of Sex and the City

for glamorizing the Magnolia Bakery cupcake.

They breathed new life into the cupcake.

Long live the cupcake!


  1. Was contemplating buying some fancy ones today! Didn't realize that Sex in the City inspire the cupcake movement,

  2. I'll be in NYC next Friday for the TCRWP Reunion Saturday...your writing makes me think I need to add Magnolia Bakery to my list of places to visit while in the city!!
