rachel and nichelleRachel Kramer Bussel, Nichelle Stephens (pictured at right) and Stacie Joy are the women behind one of the sweetest blogs we know, Cupcakes Take the Cake. Now you may be wondering when the whole cupcake fad is going to blow over, but these ladies have been blogging since 2004 and they’re convinced that cupcakes are here to stay. Cupcake lovers come to CTTC for recipes, decorating ideas, event listings—you can even find a cupcake shop in your area. So give their blog a look, and we totally don’t blame you for stopping by a bakery on your way home!

What makes me a lady: I write thank you notes (and send snail mail), I’m a good friend and I try to think outside of the box.
Favorite guilty pleasure: Tabloid magazines. (Love ‘em and read way too many of them.)
Three things on my life list: Become a mom, cook a fabulous meal for someone special and get published in The New York Times.
If I could have a superpower, it would be: Mind reading.
Ladies I admire: Jeannette Walls, Martha Stewart, Michelle Obama, Anna Quindlen, Mary Lou Lord, Guinevere Turner, Christina Hendricks, Madonna, Virginia Postrel, Molly Crabapple, Samara O’Shea, Hollis Gillespie and Mary Pols.
