My Friend, the Kitschy Girl

One of my neighbor friends is Nicki, AKA The Kitschy Girl. I've gotta tell ya, she's like a local celebrity 'round these parts. Nicki is known, among other things, for her Ah-Mazing (yes, spelled just like that) cupcakes. She brings them to all our neighborhood gatherings, and we're all always clamoring to see what flavors she brings next! Sometimes, when we're extra lucky, she stands outside with her most recent batch and lets us take samples. Yesterday's deliciousness was a chocolate cupcake with vanilla bean frosting and a single raspberry.... yum! I'm already counting down the days until Cinco de Mayo when I get to taste her horchata cupcakes... OMG! 

Anyone who knows me knows how much I simply adore cupcakes. But the truth is that I'm also pretty picky about them. I've been to many bakeries that just don't do them justice, even some of the more popular places in the area. But, I tell you, Nicki has it mastered! And since she only uses fresh, natural ingredients, you don't even have to feel guilty about eating them!

As you can see in the video below, Nicki was also recently interviewed by Cafe Mom. We, in the neighborhood, hope this gets the ball rolling for her to get her own cooking show where she can share her delicious recipes with those who aren't fortunate to be her frequent taste-testers! :)

Make sure you check out her blog, Kitschy Girl's Guide, and enter her cookbook giveaway. And if you're local, you should definitely hit her up for a batch of cupcakes for your next event... or even just to eat because they're that good. I can say, with confidence, that you will not be disappointed!


  1. I love the ingredients she is using! And since I am local I will def. keep her in mind =) Thanks for sharing!
