Have you had a cupcake today?

It's here! It's here!

Lisa Schroeder's fabulous new middle grade novel, It's Raining Cupcakes hits stores today, and I have no doubt the story will be as delicious as the cover!

I've been waiting for this book for months, and in honor of its release I intend to treat myself to a cupcake or three. 

Anyone care to join me?

What's your favorite flavor--if you can pick a favorite? ;)


  1. Chocolate! You need to ask?
    And congrats to Lisa, yay!

  2. Yep, another vote for chocolate. :)

  3. Oooo! Let's switch it up from chocolate. I say...lemon cupcakes with vanilla icing...AND SPRINKLES!

  4. Yummy!!! Hope you have fun at the bookstore! I love that place, and can never seem to come out with just one book! As for cupcakes it's tough to choose... I like a variety but I will certainly have a cupcake with you!

  5. yay! I can't wait to read this book, and those cupcakes look yummy!

  6. Chocolate has to be my favorite. I'm not a big fan of icing, but cream cheese icing is the best.

  7. Ooooh! The red velvet!


    That cover really does look tasty!


  8. Is it really possible to pick one...umm...
    yellow cake with chocolate icing ties with coconut cake with coconut icing...ooo what about German chocolate...or sprinkles...

    Is SPRINKLES where you are going?? I went there in LA...OMG! ;o)

    word verif: catedugu def.: translates to "cakesogood" when mouth full of cupcake...

    Enjoy your cupcake & the book looks great!

  9. I love milk chocolate cupcakes with milk chocolate frosting.

    Your pictures look delicious.

  10. Mmm, red velvet! Love cream cheese frosting. We have two Kupcake Factories nearby. It's torture!

  11. Red velvet or German Chocolate. Cream cheese frosting or nutty coconut frosting... It's hard to narrow it down. Frosting is the winner for me.

  12. Ooh, cupcakes first thing in the morning...just evil. ;)

    Happy release day, Lisa!

  13. Oooh, I love that book cover.... and I love cupcakes. My freaking bedspread has a cupcake design. I recently discovered red velvet cake... mm so good! And I love lots of frosting! :)

  14. mmmm....cupcakes!! :) I'd buy that book just based on the general yumminess of the cover alone.

    I think I'd have to choose a swiss chocolate cake with buttercream icing. Yummy!!! I think I just gained five pounds thinking about it. :/

  15. That is such a cute cover! It definitely makes me want a cupcake... Not good! I wish losing weight was my problem. lol

  16. yum.

    yellow cake with vanilla frosting.


  17. Thank you Shannon - you are just TOO SWEET!!!


  18. Waaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!! I'm on a diet. Only eating quinoa--yech. So I come to visit and your blog is nothing but yummy cupcakes?? What gives? Eh?


    Congrats Lisa. I'll definitely be buying the book. Been looking forward to it. =)

    Now Shannon. Here's the plan. You sneak me one when my conscious isn't looking. K? Waaaaaaaaa

  19. Wow--so many comments! Sorry for not replying to them sooner, it's been a crazy day.

    Okay, here goes!

    Tricia: LOL. Chocolate is my favorite too. Though all the others are such close seconds it's almost a tie.

    Sarahjayne: heh--chocoholics unite!

    Beth: Mmm--another awesome choice. And yes, sprinkles are a MUST!

    Jemi: I agree--Congrats Lisa!

    Jen: I love the bookstore too. And yay--I'm not the only one gorging on calories!

    Brizmus: Don't they? How come when I bake they never look like that?

    Noelle: Mmm...cream cheese icing is one of my favorites. *drools*

    Storyqueen: Yes, I LOVE red velvet. it's such a unique flavor.

    Southern Princess: Wow, those are hard to choose between. And no, I'm not going to sprinkles, but I have been there and. Oh. My. God. Yum!

    Marybeth: :)

    Catie: Mmm, I've never had a milk chocolate cupcake--but I think I might have to try one. That sounds amazing.

    Tere--Ooo-that WOULD be torture! How do you stand it?

    Kayleen: Ooo, that does sound good. And I am partial to frosting as well.

    Sarah: Hey, cupcakes have eggs, flour, milk. That sounds like the breakfast of champions to me! ;)

    Steph: How do you ever go to bed without eating a cupcake? Actually, how do you ever enter your room without eating a cupcake? You must have TREMENDOUS willpower.

    Rhonda: LOL. Then I've probably gained 20 pounds because I've been thinking about cupcakes ALL day!

    Nisa: LOL, losing weight didn't used to be my problem. And then I started editing. The editing-is-stressful diet works wonders.

    Amber: Ooo, yellow cake is another great choice. And often under appreciated, I think!

    Lisa: Aw, it's the least I can do. Happy release day and I hope you're eating a cupcake in celebration!

    Robyn: Aw, sorry. BUT--as a person who is used to dieting, I must say, I'm a BIG believer in rewarding good behavior to keep yourself going. So if you've been good for a few days, I think you've earned yourself a cupcake. Tell that to your conscience!

  20. I want to eat the delicious red velvet cupcakes right now...and if the cute little cupckae shop was open and if I had a license and a car, I would SO go there and buy a red velvet cupcake right now...note to self, get a license or a boyfriend who can drive.
