What a sweet deal! You think you’re going for a cupcake, and you end up at a sample sale! The icing on the cake? A one-day affair at the super-rich and frosty Lovely Confections cupcake bakery, 1489 Steele Street, featuring baby- and kid-centric styles from a long roster of Colorado-based kid-wear designers, including itty-bitty hand-painted children's shoes from Monkey Toes, non-edible diaper cakes from Sweet Pea Cakes Etc. (probably the most unusual shower gift ever, they’re constructed from Pampers and contain a goodie trove of baby supplies), JP Lizzy diaper bags, candy-inspired onesies from Baby Candy and more.
Bring the kids and a thirst for fresh lemonade; the Sweet Summer Sample Sale is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 12. For details, click here or call 720-297-3360. -- Susan Froyd
