Nadia’s Cakes Review- The Winner of Cupcake Wars

A few times a year we take the very long and tedious car ride up to Acton, Ca to visit my uncle. Acton is very small and consists of a liquor store, an extremely over priced mini market, and a post office. In order to get the necessities,  you have to make the 20 minute […]
