I’m Donna, a community and social media manager, content creator, writer, digital marketer and leader of the Dangerous Cupcake Lifestyle team. In my spare time, I’m a make-from-scratch foodie with a love for cupcake experimentation and living just a little dangerously. I’m also imaginary best friends with Chris Hemsworth and I may or may not have 8′ cutouts of both Thor and Loki in my family room. Our large family lives in Southern California and consists of four kids, two sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law-to-be, one adorable granddaughter and a toddler grandson.
Dangerous Cupcake is a Southern California lifestyle blog focusing on food, family and fun. We share cool stuff about travel, entertainment, Disney and Marvel, movies and TV, technology, crafts and wellness, all with our own spin. While we sometimes talk about mom stuff, my youngest is 21, so we focus more on parenting and fun with young adult children and being grandparents.
Life is different without diapers and early bedtimes, but no less chaotic. We open up about our lifestyle change as our kids grow up and while there are moments of “the last time,” there are so many “first times.” We also share our decades’ worth of organization tips, party hosting, finding a new focus and the issues moms face in phase 2 of life.
As the kids grow, life changes, but we adults get to grow up with them, so no matter what, life is never boring and it doesn’t end when the empty nest grows near!
Life is short. Live a little dangerously.
We get pretty casual, talking about our home life, attempts to live a natural lifestyle and our experiences with secondary infertility, autism and special needs. Fueled by coffee, yoga and working out at home, I’m a big believer that you don’t have to be perfect to be fit and healthy. Wine, NASCAR, a good tailgate party, we keep it real here. We just completed a whole-home renovation in 2021, so we’re also sharing what we learned about designing your own home remodel and surviving living in it throughout the mess.
If you’re interested in joining our team of writers or working with us in another capacity, please email DangerousCupcakeLifestyle@gmail.com.
Glad to have you a part of the Dangerous Cupcake community! Stick around, we have a lot of fun here!
