Unicorn Cupcake T-Shirt

By on Monday, December 27th, 2010

 

Is there something wrong with me that I really want this shirt? And is the unicorn supposed to be, ahem, “expelling” the cupcakes, or is that just one unfortunate interpretation? Either way, I think it is hilarious. If you have the same (possibly weird) sense of humor, you too can find one of these t-shirts at Cafe Press for $12.

Flirty Aprons

Even though I never wear an apron, I’m still in love with this one from Flirty Aprons. Maybe it’s time I got a little bit more domestic. This Frosted Cupcake Apron costs $34.95 and appears to be worth every penny.

Mini Cupcake Triffles

By on Sunday, December 26th, 2010

So you dazzled them with your cupcakes on Christmas day and now you need to come up with something new, something not so cupcakey, so how about a mini cupcake triffle?

These cupcake triffles are from Courtney’s Sweets blog and I found them when surfing the web to find a way to turn my unfrosted excess cupcakes into something ‘unique’ for a dinner party we are having tonight.  So this is the perfect recipe, but I have one recipe addition, alcohol (for the adults), it is a dinner party after all and the kiddies want more cupcakes!  So I will add Baileys to some, Kahlua to some and this orange liquor we have to some others.  To identify each, I’ll add a chocolate chip, a coffee bean or a Jaffa!  Totally sorted!

Happy Boxing Day!

Little Cupcake Bakeshop Helps Endangered Species Coalition

By on Saturday, December 25th, 2010

How would you like to sink your fork into  potato focaccia cupcakes with cream cheese and goat cheese icing? That’s what was served at Little Cupcake Bakeshop recently in an effort to raise funds and awarness for the Endangered Species Coalition. Eat a cupcake — save a polar bear? What can beat that?

Disney’s Tangled Cupcake

By on Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Disney’s lastest animated children’s film, Tangled is a twist on the classic story, Rapunzel.  I noticed that in one of the previews for the film a “pub thug” offers Rapunzel a tray of cupcakes.

According to Disney’s character description, ATTILA CUPCAKE is the most intimidating of all the thugs; but once you get to know him you realize that he’s actually a quiet softy who is more comfortable in an apron than body armor. Attila is most at home in front of his oven, cooking and baking away. His specialty? Cupcakes. He dreams of the day that he can put down his sword and pick up his spatula… and maybe, just maybe open his own bakery.

The video clip titled Wanted: Pub Thug, can be watched on youtube, or you could always go see the movie!

Mince pie pops!

By on Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Move over cakepops, mince pies want a piece of the stick!

Ha!  I love these, actually when trying to come up with a heading for the post I originally typed Mince Poppies, but thought it gave the wrong message and transposed it!

I have excellent news, one of my fave bloggers is back doing that which she does best, baking and blogging!  The Lone Baker is back and whipping up a Christmas flurry of flour and fruit!  There is so many good things on her website and interesting techniques, that it is often hard to choose what to feature, but today I had no doubt, it had to be these!

So not really a cake, but who doesn’t love a mini mince pie at Christmas?  And when cooked on a stick in the shape of a star?

Want to find out how to make them?  Full recipe and photo instructions are available on her website!
