Cupcake Christmas

By on Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Its that time of year again!  Less than a month until Christmas day and you have to buy presents for all those people in your life and more often than not, you have no idea what to get!

Well here are a few cupcake ideas for a cupcake inspired Christmas!

First is a cupcake clutch, this one was spotted by Rebecca A. Cooper in Periwinkle boutique at  Shirlington and is USD $52 plus tax. The patent bag is super cute with its embossed cupcake!  See more here.

For kids, you cannot really go past this year’s best seller, the Squinkies and their Cupcake Surprise Bake Shop from Blip Toys!  You can pick this one up for just USD $39.99 from Amazon and it is currently in stock (though only just).

Or how about something a little more strange?  Like Angel Heart Design’s Cupcake Chandelier?  This white iron chandelier comes with three cupcake lights and is USD $145.00.  You can also have a say in the color of your cupcakes!

Or play it safe with body products like these adorable little cupcake soaps from Ditsy Daisies.  They are just GBP 8.50 and come in three flavors, or should that be smells!?

Then don’t forget, if they bake there are heaps of ideas around, such as cupcake liners, wrappers and toppers, not to mention cupcake books and baking trays!

Cupcake Topping Bar

By on Sunday, November 28th, 2010

When I was growing up I always loved when we had make-your-own ice cream sundaes at school.  So naturally I loved the idea of a DIY Cupcake Topping Bar.  This Build It cupcake bar was featured on Green Wedding Shoes and is based on a fall theme.  I really love the idea of a topping bar because it allows guests to create their own unique cupcake!

For this cupcake bar, the cupcakes were frosted with a ring so that the toppings, which included syrups in vintage syrup dispensers, could be added to the whole in the middle. I especially liked the idea of using mini hallowed out pumpkins to serve as “bowls” for a toppings, such as sprinkles.  The possibilities of toppings for cupcakes seem endless which means you could get really creative with what you put out for guest to top their cupcakes with.
