Day 8 & 9 of Christmas Cupcakes!

By on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Work has been soooo busy that I had time trying to fit in my Christmas Wrapping, but I am happy to say that it is all done and in honor of that I have found some gorgeous easy to make Bright Bow Cupcakes from the Wilton Website!


These are easily made by flattening spice drops into long strips! Easy way to decorate with a great outcome.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but I just ate my first Candy Cane of the season at my holiday work party today – soo yummy! In honor of this Candy Cane I have found a great cupcake for the candy cane’s little brother, the Starlight Mint! Such a cute idea for a cupcake! Once again this is from the Wilton Website.

This cute image of a deer approaching a cupcake is by Elizabeth Soule Photography.  While the image is from her “Little Zoo” series, it is the only one that features a cupcake.  The image can be ordered as a card, or various sizes of prints including 6″x6″ or 12″x12″ or two photo box sizes.  The prices range from $3.50 for the card to $70.00 for the largest print size option.

We Speak Cupcake!

By on Monday, December 21st, 2009

For our last giveaway of 2009, I wanted to make it a really special one.  I met this wonderful Etsy artisan a few months back and now sassybellewares is one of my favorites.  I believe she truly gets us cupcake crazy people here on ATC.  Check out this cute jewelry from her shop.


I own one of Sassybellewares pendants and love that not only can you wear it as a necklace, but you can take it off the chain and use it as a pin.  So clever!    This week sassybellewares is giving away one of her “I Speak Cupcake” items.   The winner will get to pick one of the items below and choose if they want it as a bracelet or necklace/pin. 


To enter this giveaway, go to Sassy’s two Etsy shops and come back to tell us what other item(s) was your favorite in the comment area below.

Day 5 & 6 of Christmas Cupcakes!

By on Saturday, December 19th, 2009

I have missed a day so i will be jam packing 2 posts into one today.

Holiday baking anyone? I know a lot of people who are starting their baking as we speak! And just as stayathomecupcake said the east coast is getting hit with a storm and what a better  time to start all that baking! Here are a few good recipes & decorating ideas to try.

First off we have a lovely cupcake to make with your children. The Claus Cupcake from Disney’s Family Fun website.


Here is another fun filled cupcake idea. This one is very simple but very appealing. I found this Candy Cane Cupcake idea on the Wilton website.


A few add ins you could do for this cupcake could be to add a little bit of mint extract into the frosting or to break up candy canes and add them to the frosting as well.

White Christmas

By on Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Well, we here on the U.S. East coast are in the midst of a large snow storm today that will allow us to have our first white Christmas in many, many years.   Have you noticed it’s also snowing here at ATC?  In honor of this snowy weather, I went to Etsy and looked up “snow cupcakes” and found some nice little treasures to share with all of you.  To all who are enjoying the white stuff out your window, stay warm and eat a cupcake!
