Giant Stroller Cupcake

By on Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

My husband and I decided that our baby girl (Avalon, 7 months) would be a cupcake for her first Halloween. I needed some ideas and found your website! I bought her a knitted cupcake hat from Etsy, made her a cupcake shirt and pants (cupcake iron-ons), and since she is too young to walk, turned her stroller into a giant cupcake. Thank you for your website and inspiration!

Thank you for sharing with step-by-step photos of such a innovative concept! – ATC

Nana’s Famous Chocolate (Cup)Cake!

By on Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

I think that we all have that ONE dessert that someone in your family was famous for making! I certaintly do! My Nana always use to make a cake for our birthdays and other holidays. Our birthday would always roll around and she would always ask, ” What kind of cake do you want?’ We had 2 choices, Chocolate Cake or Banana Cake, both homemade. Most people ALWAYS chose the the Chocolate cake. And she would always put it on this super special Birthday Plate.

As the days go on she is unable to make this cake . So my family and I have taken upon ourselves to try and replicate this delcious treat.For some reason most people can not make it right.  My mother and brother have successfully made it and now it is my turn. So being the cupcake geek I am put a little twist on them … cupcake style!  Here is a quick photo adventure of my cooking venture …

HeatherLynn’s Cupcake Tattoo!

By on Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

So i just recently got some new ink, a cupcake to be exact.  I got it done by  Albie Rock at White Mountain Tattoo in North Conway NH. I made cupcakes for the Tattoo peeps so they could tattoo that cupcake on me.

Albie did a GREAT job … he had alot of fun doing it and he even thanked me for letting him do such a fun tattoo.  And like me he is an avid blogger so he blogs every day and he called me a “Cute as a Cupcake Tatster”in his blog,  ahhh i love it! So here is the new love of my life … try not to drool over it  because it does look that tasty!

What Cupcake Fans do for Halloween

By on Monday, October 26th, 2009

Spooks
by Sandra Liatsos

There’s a goblin at my window,
A monster by my door.
The pumpkin at my table
Keeps on smiling more and more.
There’s a ghost who haunts my bedroom,
A witch whose face is green.
They used to be my family,
Till they dressed for Halloween.

As Halloween approaches, we are all gearing up for this special day!

dark cupcake tattoo

I got this tattoo after many months of waiting. My sister and I have always been into cupcakes, and I wanted to show my love for them as well as my appreciation for her being my sister. After endless hours of looking at other cupcake tattoos, I knew it was time to get my own. I hope everyone likes it as much as I do! – Allison

I totally love cupcakes & adore my tattoo! It was done by Danny Edwards & pimped by Dan Kelly both of Voodoo Tattoo in Warrington, UK!
