Cupcake Team

By on Sunday, November 27th, 2011

I don’t watch a lot of sports which might explain why I have never heard this term before.  According to Urban Dictionary‘s definition, a Cupcake Team “refers to the crappy team many Division FBS colleges use as a warm-up for their football season and to sell tickets to alumni.  Teams that fill up on cupcake teams often get fat and lazy.” Being a cupcake team seems to have a very negative connotation attached to it, have you heard any sports fans use this term?

Gap Cupcake Items

By on Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Did anyone out there brave the mall this weekend and happen to buy any of these cute cupcake items from Gap Kids?  I have been avoiding shopping malls but there are still tons of great deals on the internet.  The cupcake clutch is marked down to $17.46 and the socks are $9.00 for a three pack.  I seriously wish the pink and green cupcake pajamas came in my size instead of little girls.  And of course every little baby wold look cute in the cupcake sleep set for $19.80.  Gap is offering free shipping on orders over $50.00 and 20% off your purchase through tonight so hurry and place those orders!

Holiday Cupcake Cake

This cupcake cake comes from a bakery in Massachusetts.  I thought it was so creative and I wanted to pass along the idea.  I love the idea of making gingerbread houses, and a cupcake gingerbread house sure would taste yummy!

Black Friday

By on Friday, November 25th, 2011

After hours of shopping and trying to find all those great deals, you are probably exhausted and ready to put your feet up and relax.  Why not kick back with a cupcake?

I searched for Black Friday cupcakes and found these yummy-looking creations.  It’s not too late to whip up a batch of these!  This one is a dark chocolate cupcake filled with vanilla bean cream, topped with ganache and drizzled with chocolate sauce.

One Handsome Tom

By on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

What is it about Thanksgiving that invariably leads to pleas from turkeys for clemency?  Do we see similar images from cows at Fourth of July?  Fish and shrimp at New Year’s Eve?

Perhaps the answer is that we draw the turkey as children, tracing our hands with crayons, turning our thumb into the smiling turkey face, our fingers into the colorful feathers.  Seemingly every child is connected to turkeys, while all other animals are, well, options.

In an hour-long scan of turkey cupcakes, ranging from cupcakes made from ground turkey to cupcakes celebrating turkeys, this is the one turkey who captured my heart and made me think twice about the bird in my refrigerator.  If I had seen this handsome Tom earlier this week, perhaps I would have served up imitation cupcakes, under silvery domes, to be lifted to the surprise of my guests.

(Maybe next year.)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
