Elle Macpherson Cupcake Collection

By on Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Unlike some cupcake undergarments there are no actual cupcakes this time. Here cupcake is only used in the title.    I thought I’d post it anyway since Elle Macpherson Intimates are always elegant and if you are wearing it under your clothes you will still know that what you have on has to do with what you love, cupcakes!  The Elle Macpherson Cupcake Collection has two bra and two underwear styles to choose from.  I found them on Zodee, which is offering a special, buy the bra and get the matching underwear free.  I also know that Nordstroms carries Elle Macpherson Intimates, the website did not show the cupcake line but you could always check with your local store.  And just to mention, since October is breast cancer awareness month, Nordstroms has a special where for every bra you buy in one of their stores they donate $2.oo to support Susan G. Komen for the cure. So you could buy the bra and get something free for you or buy a bra and do something good for others.

Fall Cupcake Accessories

By on Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Just yesterday, California was suffering through another 90-100 degree Indian summer day.  The last throes of summer refusing to leave.  In a dramatic 24 hour reversal, it is now a brisk 60 degrees; the wind that has been absent for so long is back.  Fall is here, and winter is just around the corner.

With fall comes the sniffles and the cold, and Ditsy Daisies delivers again with two new cupcake items.  The first are reusable cupcake hand warmers.  They  come in a pack of 2 and easily fit into handbags or pockets.

The second are adorable cupcake pocket hankies.  These thick 3-ply hankies the come in packs of 2.  Instant relief for cold runny noses!

Elephant Cupcakes

By on Monday, September 28th, 2009

Patty, AKA Vampire Gran, designed a beautiful elephant cupcake that does not take many resources to pull off.  Needed materials are a couple pastry bags, two decorating tips #804 and #124, and chocolate chips for eyes.  Full step by step photos and instructions were immensely helpful.
