Unforgettable Cupcakes

Who doesn't love cupcakes? They're the perfect sweet treat for anything! I recently had the most amazing tasting courtesy of Shirley from Unforgettable Cupcakes. I tried four flavors, Chocolate Espresso, Pineapple Coconut, Strawberry Champagne and Cookies n' Cream... my favorite? Pineapple coconut!

Shirley's cupcakes were not only delicious but also priced very reasonable! There are tons of flavors to choose from and endless options as Shirley can make each cupcake completely different or create a uniform look for every flavor. She even offers 6" and 8" mini cakes for brides interested in forgoing the standard wedding cake and opting for the mini version.

Bottom line.... if you're thinking about ordering cupcakes for an event, Shirley from Unforgettable Cupcakes is your girl!

Mamma Mia!

As an Ybor resident I just love having date night at Bernini of Ybor. Their wood-fired pizza and calamari is always out of this world! My favorite thing about Bernini? You can host a private event for up to 75 guests on the third floor. The atmosphere is really unique, it almost feels like you were invited to the owner's private space above the bustling restaurant floor. Having an event at your home? Bernini's doesn't only serve food in their quirky building on 7th Avenue, they also provide off-site catering. Next time you're in Ybor definitely take a peek upstairs... and if it's around dinner time, I recommend the Gilroy pizza!
