I have never seen a paper disposable single cupcake stand! The is really cool. You could dress it up with some sparkles or ribbon. This would be perfect for a younger child’s birthday party.

I found these Paper Cupcake Stands at Paper Source.

Here is another few great items from Paper Source.

Cupcake on the Brain

By on Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

I’m pretty sure everyone that reads this blog has cupcakes on the brain, at least that’s what I thought when I saw this image.  Dr. Morvund is being held by a monster who’s brain has been mistakenly replaced with a cupcake.

Looking for the latest on Halloween?

If you are, then taking a quick trip across to the Cupcake Cauldron might be the answer for you.  Ashley’s blog is a mix of her current creations with a few great cupcake recipes thrown into the cauldron so to speak!  But it is Halloween that she does best, and here are two of her creations.

These show how much magic you can create by just adding a topper!  Of course the cupcake flavor choice is all important as well.  Ashley has used vanilla cake with fudge frosting for Pumpkin and for Skull she used a devil’s food cake with a mini peanut butter cup on the inside and peanut butter frosting on top.

Can’t believe Halloween is now just over a week away!

Sylvia Cupcakes

By on Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Cupcakes go with everything, including the theatre.  Sylvia is a comedic play about a dog and the quarrelsome couple who adopts her.  It is written by A.R. Gurney and was first performed in 1995 at the Manhattan Theatre Club.  Sarah Jessica Parker played the part of Sylvia.  That’s right — the dog. 

The play is still popular in theatres all over the country, and Mariel, an ATC reader, just submitted this fabulous photo of her Sylvia cupcakes, which she made to celebrate a production near her!

She cut the pawprints out of colored gumpaste, then rolled white gumpaste into little balls, which she flattened and attached with royal icing.  To make the “dogtags,” she tied scrapbook adornments into a bow, and then cut one side of the bow!  Isn’t she clever?   Thanks for sharing, Mariel!
