Halloween Parade Cupcake Wrappers

By on Sunday, October 17th, 2010

I find the images of Belle and Boo to be absolutely adorable.  One of my favorites is the Happy Halloween print where Boo is inside a Jack-O-Lantern and Belle is dressed up like a cat.  I was excited when I came across these Halloween Parade Cupcake Wrappers available on their Etsy site. Ten decorative wrappers, which are not meant to be baked in, come in a pack for $9.50.  Belle and Boo also sells matching invitations.

Decapitated head cupcakes anyone?

Decapitated Head Cupcake by PepsiNZ

I think I need to explain myself!

Well I was cruising Flickr today when I stumbled upon this rather gross cupcake by PepsiNZ.  Actually it is a very funny mix of really awful and really cute, the face is adorable!  But it would make the most awesome Halloween cupcake, especially that is if you have older boys!

She is quite talented with her cupcake creations, but before you race off and check out her photostream, be warned it is not all G rated!

Cupcake Art in Cupcake Stores

By on Friday, October 15th, 2010

The thing I love about art is there is no right and wrong, anything and everything can be explored and the emotions it provokes in a viewer are as unique and individual about the art itself.  Even the cupcake is becoming quite a feature in paintings and drawings, for example who doesn’t know about the very popular CakeSpy who has a huge following of fans.

It seems that Cupcake stores and Bakeries are starting to catch on, adding an ever changing kaleidoscope of color to otherwise plain walls.  In addition, it gives patrons something to look at while they wait, and lets face it, if you have waited in a 15 minute queue for your cupcake you deserve a bit of eye candy along with your cupcake!

Above we feature the talented Jonathan Arras who is an artist who has created a number of colorful pieces of art which he is currently showing at Common Ground Cupcakes for the next month.  Some of his art features cupcakes such as the image above titled ‘Two Animals in Search of A Cupcake” but all are bright and colorful and perfect for a cupcake store.  His art is on sale in the store which is located in Renton WA or you can see his work on his website, Spirals In Love.

What do you think?  Do you want to see more art in cupcake stores, or is the cupcake counter your only focus?

Momiji Cupcake Dolls

By on Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Momiji dolls are adorable little message dolls that are categorized into little collections.  Each doll has a cut out hole in the bottom and a card inside the hole for writing a little personalized note.  While looking around on the Momiji site I noticed that they have a few fun cupcake related items.  There are two Momiji dolls that have cupcakes on them.  Each of the dolls are pixies, one is from the vintage collection and the other from the random collection.  Once is blond haired and wearing a pink dress while holding a yellow cupcake while the other has a cherry theme.
