Welcome to my blog!  My name is Karie Kearney and I am the founder of Miss Priss Cupcakes & Such in Long Beach, California.  I opened Miss Priss in 2008, with just hope a dream and a prayer.  It wasn’t easy but I didn’t give up and with the help and support of my biggest cheerleader, (my mother, Susie Ivy), I was able to realize this dream of mine. Throughout the years customers have read my story on missprisscupcakes.com and have written to me, or have come into the shop to tell me that I have inspired them to realize their dreams.  That is such a flattering compliment and I just think… wow… what an amazing feeling! I myself crave inspiration, so many people have made me want to achieve more or to be a better person.  Since I am such a seeker of inspiration each month I will feature a person who I think is inspiring, successful or fascinating.  I think people who go after their dreams and succeed at it should be celebrated. In this blog I will take you with me on trips, concerts or restaurants.  Seeking out new places and things in the world that are interesting and wonderful. I want to try things that are adventurous and out of my comfort zone.  I will introduce you to my daughter Madison, aka Baby Cupcake who is my pride and joy!  I am so proud of the young woman she has become.  I will share recipes for delicious dishes I enjoy making and show pictures. We will take you on our get fit journey and maybe you would like to take it with us. I will share crafts and hobbies I enjoy, such as turning trash into treasure!  I brake for yard sales!  Anything that is creative is what gets my inner entrepreneur going full force!  I do have one little favor…I would respectfully appreciate keeping this a Positive zone, leaving the negativity at the door.  There is already so much unpleasantness in the world don’t you agree? So lets smile, be kind and try to help our fellow neighbors whenever we can.  Random acts of kindness is so beneficial for both parties!  I am grateful everyday for all that I have and all who are in my life.  Thank you for joining me and feel free to leave a comment or suggestion. Hoping you are having a prisstacular life!  Hugs,  Karie… or you can call me “Cupcake,” like my friends do :)

    I remember when you first opened. I was so excited to have cupcakes so close to home. What I wasn’t expecting was how family oriented the business was. Each time I would walk in, even if it was only once every few months, I was greeted like a friend! Your tuxedo cupcakes have no competition. I have tried others and they do not compare. I know your cupcakes are made with love and this is why I keep coming back. Many wishes for continued success and sweetness!
