Desperate Cupcakes Note Cards

By on Friday, January 28th, 2011

My sister noticed these Desperate Cupcakes Note Cards at her college bookstore.  The card set contains the characters from the Desperate Cupcakes book featured in images that are said to be difficult situations, such as the one shown above where the cupcake is in yoga class.  Amazon offers the set of 16 cards for $11.04.

Cupcake Color In Clock

By on Thursday, January 27th, 2011

How fun is this cupcake color in clock designed by 9Spotmonk? For $34.00 you get the letter press printed clock with three non-toxic crayons for kids (or adults) to personalize.  They also have color in cupcake thank you cards for kids but I think this clock is more fun!

Happy Australia Day!!

By on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Today is our 4th of July, well, actually tomorrow is!  26th January every year Australians celebrate what it is to be Australian.  We approach this, in much the same way as everything else, with great gusto! There will be burnt sausages, prawns, seafood, lots of food, fireworks and of course cupcakes!

I created these cupcakes for the kids at the BBQ we are attending today.  I created the fondant flags first by cutting it and twisting around a toothpick then piped the details onto them.  Unfortunately there is only six points on the bottom star which means I have lost an Australian State or Territory (as there is one point for each), and my red frosting bled into my white, but I am pretty happy with them!  And most importantly the kids will LOVE them as they are my favorite chocolate recipe with a chocolate ganache.

Red Velvet Devil’s Food Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Prior to reading Kitchen Contessa’s blog post I’ve never heard of red velvet cupcakes being called devil’s food cupcakes.

I know I love red velvet cupcakes so I’m sure I’ll enjoy trying her Red Velvet Devil’s Food Cupcake recipe.  I especially like the fun decorating, dipping the frosted cupcakes in melted colored chocolate to transform the cupcakes into red devils!
