Cupcake Coin Purse

By on Sunday, August 28th, 2011

I love my little coin purse that I have, it has saved me many times when I was just a bit short at the coffee shop for cash. But if I had had this cupcake coin purse, the baristas would have thought it was so cool that they would have given me my coffee and bagel for free!

Who out  there is getting ready for Irene?! I know I am — got my flash light, got my candles & plenty of reading material! Well the folks at Carolina Cupcakery were getting ready a little bit differently.

They came up with the Hurricane Cupcake Kit about 3 years ago and they decided to bring it back for a Irene’s arrival.

Who else is preparing for Irene?!

Gluten Free Cookie Cupcakes with Raspberry Fluff Frosting

By on Friday, August 26th, 2011

Cupcakes plus cookies are the perfect pair in this cupcake recipe for cookie cupcakes with raspberry fluff frosting.  Ez Pudewa from Creature Comforts adapted from the September issue of Everyday Food Magazine so that they were gluten free.  I have yet to try baking cookies into cupcakes but since I love both cupcakes and cookies I will be adding these to my to-bake list!  The gluten-free version of this recipe can be found in the Creature Comfort’s blog post while the original version is on the Martha Stewart website.
