Cupcakes for Kiddos

By on Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Can you imagine a world where the sale of a single cupcake buys thirteen meals for children in Uganda? We’re living in it.

Cupcakes for Kiddos was started by 10-year-old twins, Ella and Liliana, from Lawrence, Kansas. If you live in Lawrence, you can place an order for some homebaked cupcakes, and they will be hand-delivered to your door. If you don’t live in Lawrence, you can still make a donation, and if you wish, cupcakes will be delivered on your behalf to a deserving individual. All the proceeds go to Amazima Ministries.

For more information, or to order some cupcakes, email cupcakesforkiddos (at) gmail (dot) com by Tuesday, May 3rd.

Brighton jewelry has two really fun cupcake charms available in stores and on their website.  I really like the cupcake flower charm since it actually opens.  The pink and the green on this $21.00 charm fit perfectly with the current popular cupcake colors of pink, green, and brown.  The second charm is part of Brighton’s ABC line and is a small cupcake for $8.50.

Cupcake toppers with a personal touch!

By on Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Have you ever wanted to create cupcakes for a special occasion that really seem to celebrate the recipient?  I can think of many birthdays and celebrations where I have wanted to really give a personal touch to my cupcakes, but sometimes you just don’t have time to cut up 2-3 dozen pieces of cardboard, then inner cardstock and finally creating and cutting up those photos as well!

Well if you are in this situation, or just want to create something professional, then these toppers from Diva Entertains are seriously worth checking out, inexpensive and customizable, what more could you ask for?  Okay, ready cooked cupcakes wouldn’t go astray, but hey, that is where you can add your signature stamp!
