Cupcake Magnet Giveaway

By on Monday, September 28th, 2009

You won’t believe your eyes! These cupcakes are the non-edible creations of Etsy artisan threerabbits. Each cupcake  is made completely from non-food materials but  SMELLS like a real cupcake!  I can’t tell you how may friends and family have taken a second look to see if I had a real cupcake on my fridge.

Threerabbits also sells these cute little cupcakes as decorations and these cupcake baggies.   Just put one of the faux cupcakes (or cupfakes) in the bag and you have the perfect goodie bag for a cupcake birthday party!

Tools of the Trade

By on Saturday, September 26th, 2009

I, just like some of you am an avid cupcake baker.  To make marvelous, mouthwatering, munch-able cupcakes you have to have some good tools. Here are a few of my favorite  tools I like to use when baking cupcakes.

This right here is essential for frosting cupcakes. It is angled so you don’t get your finger and hands all covered in frosting.

Another way to frost cupcakes is to use the plastic bags with the tips. Here is a good starter kit for cupcakes. It comes with a few tips to get you started and you can make fancy designs with it!

Instead  of using good old fashioned food coloring that get very messy you can you use this Icing Color Set! Plus it has some of the colors already figured out for you! (using food coloring i think you have to be a color chemist to get the righ colors you want).

Cupcake Snail Mail

By on Friday, September 25th, 2009

What better way to let someone far away know you’re thinking about them then by sending them some mail the old fashion way.  Cupcake Stationary is the perfect alternative to plain paper and will without a doubt make the recipients day.  Who wouldn’t smile at the sight of a cupcake?
