Katy Perry wore a cupcake dress again while performing in the UK . The skirt resembled a cupcake tree, the skirt had tiers topped with bright coloured cupcakes.

A true sign your bakery has made it big? When Google throws its support behind it — which it did for a Rosewell bakery serving frozen yogurt and cupcakes. Google gave Cloud 9 Frozen Yogurt and Cupcakes new laptops, cellphones, accounting services and $100,00 (USD) for marketing. Not that they even need it after this endorsement.
