A Bear-y Good Time at the Care Bears x Sprinkles Party

By; Finance Foodie

In honor of the 35th Anniversary of the cute-as-a-button childhood favorite Care Bears, the awesomely delicious Sprinkles Cupcakes has teamed up with these lovable bears for limited edition Care Bear-themed cupcakes in stores until January 25th.
The other night, the Mister and I celebrated this collaboration at Sprinkles store on the Upper East Side where we got an up close and personal look at the final product and even got to make own Care Bear x Sprinkles cupcakes!
When we arrived. the party was already in full swing. Members of the press and their guests were snapping photos, chatting happily and of course, sampling the cupcakes!
With a few naked cupcakes, icing and decorations, I was ready to design away!
Final Product
I tried my best to make a decent looking cupcake (mine is on the left, the professional one is on the right), but alas - I should probably leave the cupcake making for the experts :(.
Professional Cupcakes
Make sure to follow both the Care Bears and Sprinkles Instagram pages as they will reveal "whisper words" weekly, If you go to the store and say these "whisper words," you will get all sorts of fun and (likely delicious) treats.  Furthermore, Sprinkles will celebrate National Hug Day on January 21st with "product giveaways and cheerful activities" so make sure to stop by and grab yourself a sweet treat!

By: Finance Foodie

The other day, I had the honor of attending a special press screening of the new 8 part mini-series Small Business Revolution, which showcases the transformation of Wabash, Indiana through its small businesses.  The online series, available to view now at and set to stream on Hulu beginning October 21, is hosted by the esteemed Shark Tank investor and son of immigrant factory worker Robert Herjavec and the affable Amanda Brinkman of Deluxe Corporation. As the Mister and I are big Shark Tank fans (we DVR every episode!), I obviously had to attend and check it out.
