The Dark Side

By on Monday, January 31st, 2011

My husband says I can’t have any more stickers, so I’m out of luck, but I thought I would pass this opportunity to y’all. What opportunity? To make everyone who sees your sticker laugh! At least, it made me laugh. Hard. I’ll do a lot for a cupcake, but the dark side? … what kind of cupcake?

This vehicle sticker is available from Cool Custom Design via Amazon for $4.

Batter Babies Giveaway

By on Monday, January 31st, 2011

You may remember last week I introduced you to ATC sponsor Kimber Cakeware. They specialize in creating unique products that make baking easy and fun. Check out their Batter Babies and the fabulous cupcakes they can help you make:


The Batter Babies are quite simple to use, just follow these steps:

  1. Simply place the Batter Babies in individual cups
  2. Pour the two separate batters into each cup
  3. Remove Batter Babies before baking

You can make cupcakes that are two different colors (think amazing red and green Christmas cupcakes) or 2 flavors (maybe a chocolate and a peanut butter dou!).  I tried these out last week and I have to say that they really are that easy and they really do make great cupcakes. 

This week, five ATC fans will get the chance to win a set of Batter Babies.  Yes, we will have 5 winners this week!  To enter, click on the comment area below and tell us what kind of cupcakes you would make first if you won the Batter Babies.  Winners will be chosen on Monday, February 8th.  Thanks to Kimber Cakeware for sponsoring this amazing giveaway!


Make sure to become Kimber Cakeware’s fan on Facebook too!

Chocolate Cupcake Card

This Chocolate Cupcake card is by Curious Chocolate, a European chocolate company.  When you first look at the card you notice the cupcakes but a closer look reveals a cupcake recipe written around the cupcakes.  If I lived in Europe I would definitely buy this card for 2.50 euro and some of the chocolate too!
