Cupcake Crazy at Hot Topic!

By on Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

I’ve posted before about my love for Hot Topic and while on a business trip to the States last week I made sure we went to the nearest store so I could spend a good hour in there looking for goodies!! I wasn’t looking for cupcake things in particular but managed to come across these two lovely buttons for me to buy:

The first is a Jeffree Star one which is available on their site, here. The second, I’m assuming is a Loungefly one which unfortunately I can’t find but it should be in the store if you happen to be passing ;)

This led me to have a mooch around the online store when I got back to see what other cupcake-related items you could get from them at the moment, so here’s a couple…

First we have the Invader Zim Gir Cupcake Pig Tote, I’ve provided a close up so you can see the pattern better. This is $19.99

Why the name, Cupcake?

By on Friday, February 22nd, 2008

After winning a contest for an adorable cupcake calendar from CB, I just now realized it had a cute definition of what a cupcake is, on the back.

Cupcakes have been around since the late 18th century. The term “cupcake” is mentioned in E. Leslie’s Receipts of 1828. The name is said to come from the amount of ingredients used to make them – a cup of flour, cup of butter, cup of sugar and also because they were originally baked in tea cups or cup shaped molds.

So technically, a cupcake IS a cupcake without frosting. It’s not the frosting or topping that makes it a “cupcake”. It’s the ingredients.. and how it is baked.

This paper clay cupcake is about 4″ tall by 3 1/2″ wide. It is painted with acrylic paints and coated in a clear varnish and embellished with glitter. This would look darling as an accent on a shelf in a kitchen or in a sweet little girl’s room.

$15.00 at this etsy shop.
