Jennifer “Cupcake” Page pulls a batch of made-from-scratch carrot cupcakes out of the oven. Her kitschy kitchen, already filled with the comforting smell of baking, fills with warmth as she removes the pan and sets the cakes on the counter to cool. She closes the oven door, leans against the counter and waits to swirl cream cheese frosting on her tasty treats.

In her kitchen, she resembles a ’50s housewife with long, blonde hair, cropped bangs and rosey pink apron. However, she has an edgy, rockabilly twist with arms decorated with their own colorful tattoos of whimsical “Alice in Wonderland” characters and a large cupcake with pink frosting, sprinkles and a cherry  near her shoulder. She’s a cross between June Cleaver and glam gal Marilyn Monroe, whose black and white photos are framed throughout Page’s vintage and shabby-chic-inspired dining room and living room.
