I’d like to introduce Lauren Merz as the author of this week’s guest post. She’s called Fort Collins home for over 10 years and has been a reader of the blog every since she Googled “pumpkin patches, Fort Collins” and stumbled upon Growing Up Fort Collins.
As a guest blogger she hopes to help readers explore the family friendly side of Fort Collins, provide reviews of local activities and share her GUFC story and hear yours as well. (If you’re interested in writing a guest post, check out our guidelines.)
Now onto the business of cupcakes and story time…
Butter Cream Cupcakery Princess Story Time
She stood in her favorite princess gown peering through the glass case studying each cupcake before finally deciding upon the vanilla one with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. Cupcake in hand she took her place amongst the other frocked girls all eager to find out what princess would be reading to them today….
There are many special story times in Fort Collins but since my husband and I both work and we are enrolled in daycare full-time, I haven’t found a need to seek them out since our four-year-old gets plenty of story time at school.
But when I heard about Butter Cream Cupcakery’s Princess Story time, I knew I’d have to find a way to take my kiddo who would absolutely love this- cupcakes, princesses, dress-up and books? It’s what four-year-old girl dreams are made of.
So for my last week of maternity leave I surprised my princess/sugar addict with this special treat. And we definitely hit the princess jackpot. Elsa- the ultimate Disney royal- came out and read the children two Frozen books, handed out princess stickers and posed for photos.
In the past Butter Cream has held story times during the week but they’ve started holding Saturday story time at 1 pm, which means we may have to visit again and get her “Princess Passport” filled up with four more stickers, which earns a free cupcake.
And what’s better than a cupcake? Definitely a free cupcake.
The event is free, but it’d be pretty hard to go into Butter Cream and not buy a cupcake. Visit Butter Cream Cupcakery’s Facebook Page for details and updates. This event is held at their midtown location of Horsetooth and College.
