Looming large in Southern California is The Mission Inn -
a historical hotel and spa dating back to 1876 where it
began as a 2-story adobe guest house.
It has been visited by seven U.S. Presidents beginning
in 1903 when President Theodore Roosevelt stayed in
the hotel shortly after the Mission wing was added.
Richard and Pat Nixon were married at this hotel and
Nancy and Ronald Reagan chose this hotel as
their honeymoon destination.
During the holidays, it holds its Festival of Lights
which shows its spectacular collection of nearly 4 million lights!
Today, however, my visit to the Mission Inn fell in with
a visit to a nearby antique mall and a visit to the
- never to be missed...
Casey's Cupcakes is actually located on the backside of
The Mission Inn and opens out onto a courtyard of quaint retail shops.
Besides delicious cupcakes, what makes it so fun to visit Casey's Cupcakes?
Casey was featured on Food Network's hit show Cupcake Wars
where she was a Cupcake Wars Winner!
Inside is cheery and bright.
and her cupcakes are some of the best cupcakes I've ever eaten!
As much as I always want to try one of each...
I came home with two.
and the Beach Boy with a gumball on top!
Individual cupcakes are packaged in their own cute
lidded-box to bring home.
Not only has Casey figured out some great-tasting cupcakes,
she has figured out its all in the packaging.
Thank you Casey for the cupcakes - once again!
And thank you for visiting!
I will be joining
