Rebecca Taylor Inspired Cupcakes

By on Monday, April 27th, 2009


Here is a sweet tip for our NYC readers.  Billy’s Bakery confections are sweet enough to eat, so when we heard that she is teaming up with Rebecca Taylor to create scrumptious cupcakes inspired by her spring/summer fashion line, we thought this makes perfect (and mouth-watering!) sense. Her yummy treats come in two flavors: Vanilla Twinkle and Meow Mocha.You may not be able to wear these cupcake creations, but they will certainly taste quite delightful. What is better than a fun, flirty party dress or a sweet treat? Indulging in a cupcake that looks like your favorite frock. Delectable genius. The cupcakes are available May 1st for $2.75/piece at Billy’s Bakery in NYC, just in time for Mother’s Day.

Cupcake Fantasy Creations by Crystal.

My friend Crystal makes the best fantasy photos, see the ones she did for me of my little Addi above. She can also do just about anything else such as…birth announcements, birthday invitations, wedding invitations, baby shower invitations, thank you cards, photo collages. Anything you can think of can be made. She is amazing, and her prices are always right!

You can request work from Crystal at her website, Crystals Creations.

NY Cupcake Eating Contest

By on Sunday, April 26th, 2009

In a flurry of chocolate cream and crumby debris, the yoga teacher crammed her last cupcake – No. 17 – winning the contest, and defeating her closest competitor by just one of the sweet treats.

Ivy Bakery held its first cupcake-eating contest outside of the shop on 87th St. in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The five competitors were given five minutes to inhale as many chocolate cupcakes as possible. The winner took home $75 and dubious bragging rights.

More about this event at the NY Daily News.
