Well it's been quite the exciting week here at New York Cupcakes! We're huge Seahawk fans here, so we're totally stoked to have received visits from a few of our favorite NFL players. They seem to love the red velvet cake and have even tweeted about us! Last night was Runway to Freedom, a charity fashion show to benefit New Beginnings. As someone who has never gone to a fashion show until last night, let me just tell you all that it was AMAZING. Lauren Grinnell and Shawn Michael, the organizers of the show, really out did themselves. Here are some behind the scenes pictures from the event.

Lina Cho took me back to her tent and showed me some of the designs! Chloe wore the bra (left) made out of braided synthetic hair and the shredded skirt in the show!

The fashion show a ended up being a great success! Way to go Lauren, Shawn and team! We're also happy to report that we've already sold out of our Cancer Care for kids cupcake toppers and the week isn't even over yet! Thanks so much to everyone who bought these cupcakes and supported this great cause.
And finally tonight we have the Third Annual Girl Power Hour, an event created for the female business owners of Western Washington to network with one another. We're extremely excited for this event, as it will be our biggest mini display ever! We will have 500 mini cupcakes and a gorgeous two layer cake originally designed by Heather Betts and recreated by our newest baker/decorator, Luyda Lis. Tonight will also be the debut of a new flavor, Pink Champagne Wishes, which we created just for the event! If it's successful tonight it may be the seasonal flavor for January to ring in the New Year. Updates and pictures from Girl Power Hour 3 are soon to come, so check back soon. Thanks to everyone who made this week such a great one!
