cupcake & milk

hello everyone!
it's almost the end of this year & i am so excited! 

it is STILL the time of eating . . . or feasting i shall say,
and everyone is STILL gaining few more pounds than they wish 
but that is the joy of the holiday season!

so today's topic is on dessert!
or  more like cupcakes & milk to be exact
as i want to have a sweet end to my rough 2011

i am definitely a big fan of cupcakes
whether it be eating them or collecting cupcake-shaped things


from so many yummy cupcake shops out there, 
today's post is on perhaps the most famous shop that started in beverly hills: sprinkles cupcakes

i must admit, there is another cupcakery in los angeles that i love even more than sprinkles
but sprinkles is still de-li-ci-ous 
& they offer variety of great flavors from the usual--red velvet, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, carrot, black and white--to a more unique flavors like orange, pumpkin, chai latte, ginger lemon...etc
you can find all the flavors of the day right here

since they are known for long long lines, especially on weekends, so you can get past all that craziness by easily ordering online 
in addition, sprinkles now offers online ordering for pickup in 2hrs or delivery within 4hrs


also, having the heroine of the show gossip girl blake lively's
s'mores cupcakes for charity which will hit the stores in january
will be an added bonus for the fans or anyone who wanted to try a new flavor
for more news on this, you can check us weekly's article!


 now, the perfect match for sweet cupcakes = milk!
i am sure no one will argue with me that the best drink to have with the sweetness of cupcakes is none other than our healthy cup of cold milk!


from all the milk contenders out there, my favorite is broguiere's farm
i actually did not know i could visit them in montebello, so that will be on my list of things to try ;)
so do i just love the packaging or do i actually think it taste better? BOTH!
broguiere's milk taste really fresh & yummy and the packaging really does make a difference too! 
plus, being able to use the bottles as props or as a vase with daisies is the extra perk of these milk bottles! 


& since we are on the subject of milk, i would also like to share some more amazing milk bottles i found on pixelclouds on creative packaging in seling nature's dairy
here are few on that list i thought were worthy of mentioning

as well as communication"
