Cupcake Salt and Pepper Shakers

By on Friday, April 30th, 2010

I have a little collection of salt and pepper shakers but one that I have yet to find in my travels is a cupcake salt and pepper shaker. Just to make sure they do exist I searched for one online.  Here are some of the cute ones I came across, I think the Pillsbury Dough Boy is my favorite.

Cupcake Decorating Tools

By on Thursday, April 29th, 2010

My mom recently got me some new products that  are supposed to make  decorating cupcakes easier. I have not had the time to bake cupcakes yet but I thought I would share the products.  If you have either of these, let us know how they work for you.

From The Pampered Chef I was given the Decorator Bottle Set. The set includes three easy-squeeze bottles, each with a different tip and a cleaning brush for $12.00.

The second, by Kuhn Rikon, is a Cookie and Cupcake Deco Kit. This kit contains 2 tall bottles, 3 short bottles, 5 tips and an offset spatula for $24.00.

I know I have said it before but I will say it again: I love our Facebook fans!   Every week they amaze me with their cupcake creation photos and make me laugh with their responses to my Cupcake Question of the Day (watch for it every Saturday!).  I am so excited that we will soon hit 3,000 fans!  Check out a few of this month’s Easter cupcake photo submissions.
