Friday's Rule!!! Hat 'a Girl Mimi!




We've scrubbed, we've fake tanned, we've bought the dress, the shoes, the bag... The hat?

Hmmm, it may be wedding-tastic in Cupcake land today but we've noticed something missing-
A distinct lack of hats on the ladies. And that includes us Cupcakes.











Although Kat bucked the trend with a fascinator, beautiful as always!





It's definitely a generation thing to feel the need to wear a hat at a wedding, but as a fashion thing, I really wish I'd worn one too.
They are so glamorous, so old Hollywood and so forgiving on a bad hair day!

But for any ladies who have opted to sport a fashionable head piece, today's rule is for you. This Wedding Day rule is specifically for the hat wearing guests and it's the one rule that gives the Mother of the Bride more power than the Queen for a day.

Friday's Rule #10
DO NOT remove your hat before the MoB has removed hers!

Next Wee Betty will be expecting a curtsy and for us not to turn our back on her.

Yes it is a real rule and I'm sure the wiser Cupcake fans will be nodding approvingly while the younger readers amongst you will be questioning such a stringent tradition. I am convinced again that this one is a generation thing.
Just like 'the matching'! Matching your shoes to your bag, to your lipstick, to your nail polish, to your earrings, to your.... You get the picture! (My Mother will never understand colour blocking with clashing but I digress.)

Today's post was really a sneak peek at Cupcake Mimi's wedding and giving all our followers some exclusive shots of The Dress, The Bride, The Bridesmaids and all the other beautiful details on her special day.

A day made all the more special because Mimi and Martin invited all the Cupcakes to share it with them and for that, we all feel very privileged.

So 'Cupcake Congratulations' to Martin and Emma, officially Mr and Mrs Corcoran.

Cupcake Crazies! What Are Your Superhero Powers?



For this week's Crazy we are giving Calamity Carol a week off and amusing ourselves with something a little bit geeky, OK... very geeky.

We loved being Disney Princesses for the day on Friday (I hope you've all had your thinking caps on to guess our newest Cupcake) and thought we would try something with more of an edge.

We are giving ourselves superhero powers! And voila, here's one we made earlier...

The Kennedy Cupcakes developed the talent to absorb the damage from most physical attacks and use it to magnify its capacity at avoiding attacks, but never in bright light. It can transform ice into silver and it battles rivals with a magical sai that can force antagonists into a deep sleep. The Kennedy Cupcakes has the power to confuse the smell of an opponent and it has been known to communicate with cats through a mental link. Additionally, it possesses the power to sculpt and mold all wood with a thought. Unfortunately, The Kennedy Cupcakes is well-known for being crazy.

Yeah, take that, ZAP, KABOOM, POW, we can change the shape of wood.... whilst talking to cats!!!!!
And we thought Mimi only did that as a hobby :)
