Cupcake Knuckles

By on Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

I get asked all the time why my knuckles say “Midwest” instead of “cupcake.” I don’t have a proper answer, but maybe this cross stitch from City Down will shut everyone up. It’s hilarious, crafty and only $15. Find it at

Buttercup’s Paw-tisserie

By on Sunday, April 27th, 2008

A while back I posted a recipe on my blog for pupcakes (cupcakes for your dog) after seeing something similar at Cupcakes. I was poking around today to see what other people are baking for their pups and came across Buttercup’s Paw-tisserie in Brooklyn. Is it sick that some of the cookies and candies for dogs looked tasty to me? I don’t care, if it’s vegetarian I’ll eat it and they have a whole section of veggie dog treats.

I’m feeling fortune right not to not have a dog, I already give my kid way too many cupcakes. But my mom’s got some doggies that I’m sure would love this place. Anyway, it goes to show you that cupcake are universally delicious, even if you drink from the toilet and lick your own butt.
