DIY: Pom Pom Heart Toppers

By on Sunday, February 13th, 2011

A few weeks ago while looking at Simple Song I noticed the cupcake image shown above.  I loved the Pom Pom heart toppers and of course checked out Hank and Hunt’s Etsy page.  For $10 you could order a set of six toppers that measure 1.5” by 2” each.  This weekend while looking around online I noticed that Jenny from Hank and Hunt was a guest blogger on The Sweetest Occasion and shared a DIY tutorial for how to make the pom pom heart cupcake toppers!  Its obviously too late to order the set from their Etsy page and receive them in time for Valentine’s Day tomorrow, but it’s not to late to make your own! Check out the original post for all the DIY instructions!

Happy Valentines Day ‘Hoot’

By on Sunday, February 13th, 2011

One thing that is almost as big as cupcakes, is a trend for really cute owls! It is no wonder then that owls, cupcakes and Valentines Day have all been combined to create a super cute gift for someone special.

These owl cupcakes were created by My Own Barn and you can find out all about them at the blog.  It is truly a haven for owl lovers with everything ‘owl’ being displayed!  But it was not the blog that got my attention, it was the cupcake, adorned with a lovely owl that was winking at me on Flickr.  You can check them out here.

Heart in a Cupcake

By on Saturday, February 12th, 2011

This Valentine’s Day season we have showed you how to put hearts on top of your cupcakes and bake cupcakes in the shape of hearts.  Now we share with how to bake a heart in your cupcake.  If I was a little kid and bit into one of these I know I would have freaked out in excitement.  To be completely honest, if someone made these for me now I think I would still freak out! Bake It in a Cake seems to be willing to try baking anything into a cupcake.  She once baked a pie into a cupcake!  These hearts baked in cupcakes are much more tame and the pink hearts are actually sheet cake; so you’re baking a cake in a cupcake!  Head over to Bake It In a Cake to see full instructions on how to bake hearts in your cupcakes!

Hot Valentine Cupcakes

By on Friday, February 11th, 2011

Only three days left until Valentine’s Day and today I wanted to share with the most amazing Valentine cupcakes yet. This link comes to me from my sweet friend Nicole who is always on the lookout for amazing cuppies.  Take a look at these chocolate cupcakes with flaming strawberries from Sprinkle Bakes.


The flame is made by hollowing out a strawberry and pouring in a small amount of Vodka, rum, or your choice of liquor 80 proof or higher before it is set aflame.   Click here to read the full directions in their post.
