Cherry Cupcake Tattoo (Medium)

Hello! My name is Amanda and I’m from South Jersey. I’m starting Pastry School in a few days, so yesterday I decided to get a cupcake tattoo on my hip. It is my first tattoo (since I just turned 18 in may) and probably my last, but I love it! I came across this website looking for ideas, so I figured I’d send mine in now that it’s finished. Thanks for the inspiration!

CupKates Cupcake Truck

CupKates Bakery joins mobile cupcake fray with a cupcake truck that serves the East Bay area.  CupKates announces that its cupcakes are baked fresh daily using only the highest quality ingredients, including Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, Guittard chocolate, and Clover sweet cream butter and milk.  I’ll be making a trip with my family to taste for myself!

According to their twitter page, it seems like CupKates is still figuring out their cupcake truck route.  Take the time to sound off to encourage them to stop by your home or office!

Baby Shower Gifts – Diaper Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

I often have a difficult time figuring out a great gift for baby showers.  After all, not only the baby receiving this gift, but the mom as well.  Typical gifts such as infant toys, baby consumables, gift certificates are all good choices, but they seem to be a little lacking in imagination.  

Diaper cupcakes present a convenient solution.  It is both imminently practical, has visual impact as a gift, and entirely customizable to any theme relevant for the baby and family you have in mind.  

If you like craftsy or hands-on projects, these step-by-step instructions will help you get started. Here are some diaper cupcake visuals to inspire your creativity:

Of course professionally made cupcakes gifts are also available.  One vendor, Baby Sweet Treat, makes not only cupcakes, but sundaes and lollipops as well.
