Here are a couple of posts we have picked up on recently with our lovely cup cake papers.
The talented photographer Rowe Timson captured Gabe’s first birthday with the most gorgeous photos. See our Carnival stripe patty pans on the elaborate table. What a beautiful party. See website for Rowe Timson here.
Also spotted are the lovely cup cakes by Madelaine. See website here.
