REBECCA TAYLOR FOR BILLY’S BAKERY-CUSTOM CUPCAKES FOR MOTHER’S DAY
Text, Vivian G. Kelly
STUMPED NO MORE!
REBECCA TAYLOR’S COUTURE CONFECTIONS ARE YOUR MOTHER’S DAY SOLUTION
Remember when you were a kid and used to bake your Mom a cake – the gooier the better – for Mother’s Day? We’d stand by Maman's bed and not leave until she’d had at least a forkful and pronounced it “delicious!”
One of the great things about Moms is that they’ll lie to make you feel good. She won’t have to lie this year, if you give her the grown up version, dreamed-up by Rebecca Taylor and Billy’s Bakery. This year, they’ve partnered to design limited edition cupcakes for Mother’s Day.
ABOUT THE CUPCAKES - WHAT'S SPECIAL
Rebecca’s inspiration for the design of each cupcake originated from her Spring/Summer 2009 runway collection. “The Rebecca Taylor girl for Spring/Summer 2009 is a bohemian world traveler,” says Rebecca. The collection includes mixed ethnic prints with a feminine twist in pretty, dreamy colors.
Vanilla Twinkle by Rebecca Taylor - made of Billy’s yellow daisy cupcake topped with blue vanilla buttercream and a sprinkle of white crystal sugar and silver dots. It imitates the blue dot chiffon dress from the runway.
Mocha Meow was created from Billy’s chocolate cupcake and special Mocha-flavored buttercream with dark and light chocolate sprinkles. Resembles the leopard printed pieces in the collection.
THE COST + WHERE TO GET IT
The cupcake: $2.75/piece. Available beginning May 1st at Billy’s Bakery 184 9th Avenue New York, NY 10011.
Tel: (212) 647-9956

The dress: Dresses fall in the $185 - $425 range – reasonable, by designer standards.

Even if you’re not a Mom, pick-up one of these couture confections for yourself.
If you’re feeling really flush, get Mom [+/or yourself!] the dress to match, and she’ll think you’re the cat’s meow on May 10th.
