It's RKB's Birthday and National Vanilla Cupcake Day

When Rachel and I started Cupcakes Take The Cake nearly 11 years ago, we had no idea that cupcakes were going to be HUGE. Plus we didn't know about the cupcake holidays. November 10 is National Vanilla Cupcake Day, and it is also Rachel's birthday. Rachel is super busy writing and editing books but it doesn't mean she loves cupcakes any less. When she came to Savannah last week, she brought me cupcakes from Baked By Melissa. Then we had cupcakes from Savannah's Bake In The Day bakery.
