I came across this blog and just had to share! On Lanky Girl’s blog, The London Perspective, she wrote about an invitation she and other bloggers received to see a screening of Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the Grosvenor Square hotel in London. In addition to champagne and canapes, the guests were treated to these oh-so-cute Tiffany Blue cupcakes by Cupcakey.

Here’s her post about this very special event.

But wait, it gets better! Lanky Girl posted the recipe that was kindly provided by Nicky from Cupcakey.

While on this Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme, I decided to make my first Polyvore creation–with Audrey Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly, as the inspiration. I’m still trying to figure out how to use Polyvore. Not exactly sure of what I’m doing, I just know that Polyvore is addictive!

  1. Love these cupcakes. And I hear you about Polyvore. It is addictive. BTW, that blue bag is awesome. I have it in blue suede and I love it. Best gift ever under the tree.
