The Fashionable Cupcake

By on Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Love My Cake of Upper Montclair, NJ starts with all the necessary ingredients for a good cupcake establishment: family recipes, rich and delicious ingredients, and of course, a deep and lasting love of cupcakes.  Love My Cake also has what it takes to go from good to local icon status: panache.  Owner Sonya Newton has a flair not only for baking, but also for the creation of chic, and it shows in Love My Cake’s fashionably boutique design, stylish cupcakes and vintage apron collection.

Speaking of chic and unique – one of Love My Cake’s specialities is their Cupcake In A Jar. I’ve heard of mason jar crumbles before, and even mason jar pies, but this is the first time I’ve heard of a cupcake in a mason jar.  It sounds like we’ve discovered the latest fashion in baked goods –  are cookies next?

Lady Gaga Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

kimberlyloc recently posted on her blog the Lady Gaga Cupcakes she made.

Here is a full array of all of the cupcakes she made.

This is my favorite one …

If you check out her post you can see all of the cupcakes she made compared to the photograph of Lady Gaga  that inspired that cupcake. You can also see all of the drawings she did before hand for the cupcakes!

I think she did a great job. Very very very creative!

If you were to fashion cupcakes after your favorite singer or famous person who would you choose?

I would choose McSteamy, Eric Dane who plays Mark Sloan on Grey’s Anatomy! :)

Cupcakes for Haiti: Sweet Exchange Benefit for Canadian Foundation for the Children of Haiti

By on Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Cupcakes are versatile things. They’re tasty, portable, come in many flavors, have been known to create jobs, and also happen to be really good for fundraising.  Emma Klassen of Kelowna, BC made the right choice when she decided to make 300 gourmet cupcakes to exchange for donations to the Canadian Foundation for the Children of Haiti.

Klassen put together this Saturday’s Sweet Exchange to collect money and supplies for the Haiti Home for Children, an orphanage and school run by the CFCH. Though the orphanage’s buildings have been damaged, the children and caretakers were not hurt in the earthquake and are presently living in the orphanage’s courtyard.

While the Sweet Exchange is over,  the Haiti Home for Children still needs your help. You can send donations to the CFCH at:

The Canadian Foundation for the Children of Haiti
11400 Seafield Crescent
Richmond, B.C. Canada. V7A 3J2

(CFCH is a registered Canadian charity. CRA Business No. 89000 4591 RR0001. Donations qualify for CIDA’s matching grant program.  Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $20)

Cal Poly Bookstore Cupcake Finds

By on Monday, January 25th, 2010

I was lucky enough to spend this past weekend in San Luis Obispo, CA and while shopping in the Cal Poly Tech University bookstore I came across some great cupcake finds.  Some of which I could not resist buying one for myself and one to save as a gift!

I also saw a pink cotton shirt and pant cupcake set there too but neglected to snap a photo!
