The Flying Cupcake…


Every time we go up north to visit our youngest daughter, it is a MUST to visit The Flying Cupcake! They describe themselves as a Vegan and Gluten Free Cupcake Wonderland. They are up to six locations now…just amazing how they have grown. The Flying Cupcake has been nominated for being one of the Top 50 Cupcake Bakery in the USA.


This time our daughter surprised us and took us to the downtown location. This was our first visit to this quaint location and it did not disappoint. Look at “Little Man” being very patient as mommy cuts him a piece of “Chocolate Snowball.”


Ashley picked out…”Red Velvet Elvis” and I myself went with “Lemon Berry Zinger.” It was so moist and mouthwatering…Seconds please!!

Normally, we all zero in on the Jumbo Cupcakes. My very favorite is “Here Comes The Bride.” ย BUT, we were going out for a nice dinner that evening…so we all contained ourselves. What a shameโ™ฅ

Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:

Just starting out in the photography business?

Why not make partnerships in your local area first!

Here is an example…you could shoot a few images of their product for free.

In return, they will hang the images in their business.

Make sure to print and mat the image/images professionally with your watermark on them.

It all goes back to using your grass roots to finding business partnerships to help each other.

If this is your first or second time visiting, we would love for you to join us here at Pride in Photos. Just follow down to the bottom of the blog and fill out your email address. The inspirational tips will come straight to your inbox!

Do you have that special place you must make a visit to when traveling?

  4. We visit the local cupcake place in Roanoke when I visit my Little Men. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although, the last few visits, they’ve preferred Sweet FROG, the frozen yogurt place. I think it is getting to choose ALL the toppings that wins them over! LOL! I like Fully-Relying-On-God (FROG). Pretty cool!

    Your Little Man was MOST patient! So precious! blessings ~ tanna
