Leaping into sweet inspiration ...
Leap Year is a year in which extra consideration should be given to inspiration.
Why? Because it is an extra day, a bonus day in a year of busy; an extra 24-hours to make up for time lost, friends or family missed, a year with an extra day to get ahead, to treat ourselves. Because the average person only experiences about 20 Leap Day’s in a lifetime, Fancy Cakes by Leslie, a bakery in Bethesda, Maryland, has been inspired to do what we don't have time to do in a “Common (i.e. 365 day) Year.”
This year, you can leap into inspiration with inspirational "fortunes" inside of all of Fancy Cakes by Leslie's cupcakes.
"Inspired by quotes from the unknown to the wildly famous," says Fancy Cakes by Leslie owner, Leslie Poyourow, "I have been inspired on this Leap Year to 'Leap Into Inspiration,' unveiling custom, inspirational cupcakes. Like a Chinese Fortune Cookie, these inspirational cupcakes come with “fortunes.”
Fancy Cakes by Leslie is also adding customized fortune cupcakes with inspirational or just funny messages for social events such as baby showers, engagement parties, mitzvahs, 50th birthday celebrations and the like. How fun it will be to throw a baby shower for a friend and serve cupcakes for dessert with “fortunes” that suggest what to name the baby:
Baby shower “fortune” cupcakes: name your baby Jean DuJardin and maybe he’ll win an Oscar one day.
B’nai mitzvah cupcake (for table seating): You are sitting at table # 4 (a.k.a. the cousin table)
50th birthday celebration: You are not over the hill, you are over 50 hills.
1st birthday: You are a cutie and you know it!
