Cupcake Costume on Ellen!

By on Friday, October 30th, 2009

I just wanted to post real quick about the amazing Cupcake Costume on the Ellen Degeneres Show this Morning! It definitly looked like she jumped in an Extra Extra Extra Large foil cupcake wrapper! She was dancing and everything in it. Kellie Pickler who was on the show even mentioned something about how cute it was. I tried finding a picture of it online but i couldnt :-(

But i just wanted to share it with you all!


Thanks to our lovely reader we have found a picture of the cupcake. It is just a screen shot so it isnt the best picture in the world but here it is.


Thanks Erika!!!!

Late Night Surprise Cupcakes

By on Thursday, October 29th, 2009

On their way home from Washington, DC the other night, my mom and sister stopped by my apartment to make a special delivery.  They had stopped by Georgetown Cupcake and were delivering  two amazingly delicious cupcakes to me.  The flaovrs were pumpkin spice with maple frosting and chocolate peanut butter swirl.  I have tasted a lot of cupcakes and I have to say these were some of the best.  My sister warned my that I would not be able to take only one bite of the pumpkin cupcake and she was right!  It was just the right amount of pumpkin flavor, and pleasantly moist.  There was also the perfect amount of frosting, not too much where it overpowers the cupcake but also not too little.  This is not to say that the chocolate cupcake was not excellent, it too was wonderful.  Sometimes chocolate cake can be disappointing because it is dry and crumbly but this cupcake was packed with great chocolate flavor.  I also really liked the cupcake decorating on each.  They were simple yet attractive with the pumpkin cupcake topped with a festive fall foliage colored fondant leaf that was sparkly.  The chocolate peanut butter had a simple peanut butter swirl and peanut butter inside.

I checked out Georgetown Cupcake online and they offer shipping which I would highly recommend because these were some of the best cupcakes I have had and I have tasted a lot of cupcakes.  They have three options which include a Classic Dozen, Halloween Dozen, and Seasonal Dozen, each costing $29.00

Halloween Cupcakes with a Neon Surprise

By on Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Halloween inspires fear in us…  and fear motivates us to innovate?  ATC is happy to celebrate the creativity of its readers this Halloween season.   Here is a halloween cupcake idea sent in by Erin from Sandy, UT:

I just wanted to tell you how much i love your site and  share a cute halloween cupcake idea with all of your readers. My boyfriend Chris and i love to make rainbow/tie-dye cupcakes, so to celebrate the season we put i little twist on the traditional look.

We used the Betty Cocker Neon Gel Food Coloring to get all of these awesome colors(even the green for the icing)

All you need is a boxed white cake mix made according to the instructions. then divide the batter up in to separate bowls and dye each bowl a different color.

Spoon a little bit of each color into a cupcake liner to get the cute layered look then bake according to the box. these cupcakes are always a big hit and very fun to make.

I will give all my thanks to my friend Laura for sending me this link about Irish Cupcakes. I spent three weeks in Ireland and I am sure if I were to taste these cupcakes it would bring me right back to the lovely feeling I had while I was there. These Guinness and Bailey’s Cupcakes came from the website Irish Central. Click HERE for the recipe!
