Mayor Cupcake

By on Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

Has anyone seen this movie, Mayor Cupcake?  It’s about a cupcake baker that is elected mayor of a small town after one of her cupcakes accidentally kills the mayor.  The newly elected mayor faces the challenge of helping the town that is burdened with debt.  I haven’t seen it yet but I have a feeling I would watch it ifnothing else was on TV.

Engagement Cupcakes

By on Monday, December 26th, 2011

With the Christmas season just coming to an end and the New Year right around the corner, there are probably lots of new engagements all around you.  And of course, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, too.  It’s a popular time of the year for popping the big question!

These cupcake toppers would be perfect to celebrate a newly engaged couple or Valentine’s Day (after all, it’s now less than two months away).  Our sponsor Diva Entertains just came out with two new lovely cupcake toppers (double heart topper and diamond ring topper).  They are made of food-safe acrylic and can be used over and over again.  For just $0.99 a piece, that is quite a steal!

Snowflake Cupcakes

Merry Christmas Everyone! I woke up this morning to see it spitting snow outside and all I could say was, “Yay!”. I am not a huge fan of snow, but, I always like to have some on Christmas, it really make it feels like Christmas when it snows and there is snow on the ground.

In honor of the spitting snow in New Hampshire, where I grew up and am spending Christmas with my parents, brother and lovely dog, I have found these amazing snowflake cupcakes. The fact that they are pink makes it a million times better.

Cupcake Christmas Presents

By on Saturday, December 24th, 2011

Gift giving with fellow cupcake lovers is always fun.  Last night my best friend and I video iChatted while we opened our christmas gifts for each other. I was so excited to open my package and see my Christmas present wrapped in cupcake Christmas wrapping paper.  My friend said she bought it from Barnes and Noble but I also found the gift wrap on Amazon for $12.00.  For my friend’s present I used the Snow & Graham Holiday Cupcake wrap that’s $6.50 for two flat sheets.

The Last Last-Minute Gift from Magnolia’s

By on Saturday, December 24th, 2011

Just in the nick of time, Magnolia Bakery now offers a monthly cupcake club with nationwide shipping.  Pre-orders are being taken and shipping begins on January 2 with caramel cupcakes, followed by a different cupcake each month.

So if you find yourself in a line that’s too long for someone who is too hard to please, how about putting at least yourself in the spirit?  And while you’re placing your order, why not order Magnolia Bakery’s “Truffled Chocolate Cupcake.”

I know what I’m going to click on as soon as I click on “publish!”

Travel Advisory: the TSA is now seizing cupakes!

By on Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Hot off the press!  Apparently, gel cupcake frosting qualified as a potential security threat at the Las Vegas Airport, causing the TSA to confiscate a cupcake!

The cupcakerie is Wicked Good Cupcakes and just looking at their website has me wanting to fly to their shop to get samples.  The ‘wicked good’ cupcakes made for the MSPCA are pictured here.  If the TSA dogs had discovered these puppies, I might understand what took place.

But my conclusion will simply be this:  it’s just another part of this year’s great cupcake recipe operation
