I love the cupcake placecard holders (SKU #: 602-PCH)! They are adorable, and so realistic!

And in non-cupcake favors, I’d like to see house-warming favors, or maybe microwaveable mugs–I’m a fan of function as well as decoration!

Cow and Cupcake Cream & Sugar Set

By on Friday, September 24th, 2010

Continuing the run of Uncommon (cupcake!) Goods posts, here is just the sweetest little sugar and creamer set I’ve ever seen.  Artist Beth Mueller hand-paints these herself in her studio in Vermont. I love how adorably but simply she conveys the ideas of cream and sugar!  This ceramic duo isn’t cheap, but then again you’re getting what you pay for in cute creativity and handmade in the USA quality.

Two sides to every cupcake tattoo

By on Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Tammie from Texas has just recently sent us these new tattoos that she has just had done.  Instead of just creating a single design on one arm, she has decided to create two identically sized cupcake tattoos, one on each arm.

From the image above you can see that the cupcakes are very similar however are subtly different too, but it is not until the color is added in the image below that you fully can appreciate this design.  The cupcake on her right arm (left side of the above and below pictures), is the cupcake of good, with angel wings and a floating frosting halo, her eyes sweetly shut, where as the other cupcake, is the evil devil cake, with a red paper, red wings and horns, his eyes sinister and a little devil tail below.

Fantastic concept and brilliantly executed.  The tattoos were done by Shelbi at Renegades Tattoo in El Paso Tx.

Cupcake Oven Charm

By on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Juicy Couture always has great cupcake related items.  This week I was looking at Bakerella’s blog and realized I was just a few days too late to enter her contest to win the Juicy Couture Cupcake Oven Charm.  I figured I would still share it with our readers since it can be purchased from the Juicy Couture website for $58.00.  Although the charm it tiny, only 1 5/8in X 1in in size, it contains a great amount of detail including “bake me some couture” written on the back.

Cupcake-Stuffed Cupcakes (!) by Cakespy

By on Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Jessie Oleson, also known as Cakespy, recently upped the ante for filled cupcakes by creating…a cupcake-stuffed cupcake.  I do not kid.  She really made cupcakes that were stuffed with an even smaller cupcake.  We have the picture and the recipe to prove it.

Those cupcakes are full of it...and by it we mean more cupcakes. (photo courtesy of Cakespy and Serious Eats Recipes)
