on monday i went shopping for some new food styling props and found lots of really terrific things at the value village in richfield (one of my personal favorites for thrifting). i got five little plates, five doiles and a few candlesticks that are to be turned into cupcake stands, for only $8. what a steal. picture above is one of the new plates with a gingerbread cupcake (vanilla frosting with gingerbread cookie crumbles). the mister and i polished off 12 cupcakes in three days. eep.
