Cupcakes on Vine Tattoo!

By on Saturday, May 29th, 2010

We recently received this fun photograph from an ATC fan.

Here’s what she had to say:

Even as an adult I have a major sweet tooth and there are few things I like more than cupcakes! I love to bake and one day I will open my own bakery, where I have always envisioned having cupcakes as our main feature. One day I imagined a room like Willie Wonka where the cupcakes could grow like vines. I have been wanting this tattoo for awhile now so I just went for it! I got it done in Fayetteville, NC by Nathan at Tattoo World. Now I can’t wait to go to the beach and show it off!

Thank you for sharing!  It looks fantastic!  Have fun at the beach, and be sure to bring some cupcakes along!

Nibbling Nails!

Gnawing at your nails has never been so tasty!

Ditsy Daisies, our ATC sponsor has just alerted us to this adorable new cupcake manicure kit from Cupcakes and Cartwheels. Below is the apple green encased cupcake with a vanilla and strawberry topping, complete with cherry! But if you prefer your cupcake to be chocolate and strawberry or vanilla and chocolate, don’t despair as Ditsy Daisies provide three to choose from!

However, the best thing about these beautiful little cupcake cases, is that within their pastel lined interior they have everything to keep your nails in pristine condition.  All cupcakes contain a pair of nail clippers, nail file, tweezers, cuticle pusher and scissors, perfect to keep in your handbag for any and every nail emergency.

Curbside Cupcakes

Would you quit your day-job to start a cupcake business?  According to a CNN report, that is what the founders of Curbside Cupcakes did.  The two co-owners each had jobs but one day realized they wanted cupcakes and they wanted the cupcakes to come to them.  Using that idea, they started with a truck of 300 cupcakes and have expanded to over 1300 cupcakes.  Curbside Cupcake fans find the truck’s location through their website or social networking sites, such as facebook or twitter.  Those living in or visiting Washington, DC can look for the cupcake truck and “enjoy cupcake bliss right at their door.”
