It seems as though there is always something threatening to take the cupcakes spot as a popular food trend. First there were macaroons, then there was pie and popsicles and now it’s doughnuts! Over the last couple of months I have seen lots of recipes for doughnuts in magazines and online. I will admit that I have even considered purchasing a doughnut pan to try out some of the recipes.

These cupcakes are so stinking cute! Muppet Cupcakes from BlueRett Cakes
These remind me of growing up an watching the Muppet’s. If you could have a cupcake designed from anything reminding you of your childhood what would it be?
And our winner is…
Here was her comment entry:
“No Way! These are the cutest cupcake charms ever! I would be honored to win the chocolate sprinkles cupcake charm, so darn CUTt. For a new flavor I think an “Elvis” inspired cupcake would be a HUGE hit. Peanut butter cake w/ Banana frosting. Cheers to Miss Kitty for having such a sweet talent.”
There are few things in life that I love more than Glee, Fox’s hit musical comedy. While Glee did win a few Emmys last night, I was disappointed that Lea Michele, who stunningly plays the character of Rachel, did not win. She was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and I think she should have won, but she is young, and I can root for her for years to come. Yesterday was her 24th birthday. I remember where I spent my 24th birthday, and it certainly wasn’t at the Emmys. But all is well that ends well because guess what she got for her birthday?
Pre-show host Billy Bush presented her with a vegan cupcake in a jar. And though I would be pretty darn excited about such a gift, this red carpet gal pronounced the gift both “ghetto” and “cool.”
New York Couture has been featured on MTV, in Elle and Glamour Magazines and has been worn by personalities such as Katy Perry and Pink. Their website describes their look as “a harmonious blend of punk-rock cool, ultra-glam and prima ballerina.” There is no denying they are hip, modern and perfect for the ultra confident rock goddess or super cool party princess.
Best of all they have quite a range that feature the cupcake, so if you are in the market for some new cupcake wear that is very funky, definitely check them out! This image here is of their cupcake dresses, and you can see the variety and their liberal use of color and design.
