Cupcake Dragon Art

By on Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Artist Jonathan Arras has combined the world of cupcakes with the world of dragons in his watercolor art.  If you’re a fan of mythical creatures, then head on over to his webpage, Spirals in Love.  He says that some of the common themes in his artwork are “delirious love, loneliness, and giant desserts”.  I don’t know about you, but I really love the giant dessert part, especially when it involves cupcakes, as this painting does below.  His work has also been featured on All Things Cupcake before, so be sure and check that out as well.

Martha Stewart Cupcakes 2012 Wall Calendar

By on Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

You all may not know this, but I work for Jenni Bick Bookbinding, an Internet company that sells a variety of items from Italian leather photo albums, moleskine notebooks, day planners, calendars and so much more! And every once in a while we get in a fabulous cupcake item, and this one takes the (cup)cake.

We recently got in our 2012 Calendars, and lo and behold there it was, Martha Stewart Cupcakes 2012 Wall Calendar. Anything of Martha’s is visually stunning and very well done, this calendar is no exception. It was designed and put together with us cupcake bakers in mind.


They’re two elements that I absolutely love about this calendar– At the bottom of every month/page there is a baking tip or fact. One of my favorite tips is –Save Butter Wrappers for Greasing Pans, rather than discard the wrapper after you’ve used a stick of butter, stash it in the freezer inside a re-sealable plastic bag. When you need to butter a baking dish take out the wrapper, let if soften slighty, and use.


The second element that I love, is the recipe cards that are provided for the scrumptious cupcakes displayed within the calendar.


You could give Martha Stewart a run for her money with all the knowledge that this calendar provides.

Oh Boy, do I have a craving for cupcakes now!

Fall Cupcake Collars

By on Sunday, September 25th, 2011

These cupcake collars would make a fun and simple craft project for your kids, and would add a nice fall touch to your next gathering.  Simply choose a template (most are less than $1), print it onto white cardstock, laminate it, and cut it out.  Then place the cupcake into the hole and use some tape to secure the collar to the cupcake.

Fashion-Conscious Cupcakes

By on Saturday, September 24th, 2011

In Southington, Connecticut, Frosted Couture Cupcakes has just opened.  You won’t find names like “chocolate” and “vanilla” here.  Their cupcakes are all named after famous designers.  You will encounter flavors such as “Cannoli Klein”, “Chocolate Chip Gucci Dough”, and “Rock and Raspberry Republic”.  They even have a fall collection with flavors like “Apple and Olivia” and “Cole Haan Cinnabon”.  These cupcakes not only look tasty, but they are also exquisitely designed.
