I would give it to my little cousin! Shes 7, for the past 2 years, before Christmas we would make cupcake ornaments!! While we do it, we dress up in cupcake aprons!! Its really fun, and she enjoys it just as much as I do! while we craft we listen to the “Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake” song! I love it! Strawberry shortcake is her favorite. It would be even sweeter, this holiday if we could do some new cupcake crafts!! This book is so cute, and I would love to see what crafts are inside!! What a treat hehe!

Melanie Cechman
I would give this book to my niece, who always loves helping me make cupcakes from my cookbook when she visits me! Then she would have a her own recipe book to work with at home :)

Congratulations!  Please email your mailing address to atcwinner@gmail.com.  Thanks to all our sweet fans and to author Audrey Davidow for sponsoring this great giveaway!

Cupcake Crinkler

By on Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Last weekend while doing some holiday shopping in one of my favorite gift shops, Paper Skyscraper I noticed this cute cupcake baby toy.  It’s called a cupcake crinkler and it’s by Rich Frog Industries Inc.  It’s available on their website for $7.95 along with a list of other animals and images.  The photograph was taken with my phone which is why it is yellow in color.

Looking for a cupcake frame for your own little cupcake?! Look no further!

Target has them for only $12.99. Would also make a great present for a first birthday!

Graduation Cupcake

By on Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Usually in May and June we share ideas for how to decorate cupcakes for high school and college graduates but the December graduates get left out! I am a December graduate so this got me thinking about cupcakes and graduation.  I found this awesome picture of a graduate who decorated her cap with a cupcake! Hmm I wonder what people would think if I did this at my commencement ceremony on Thursday? I would definitely stand out but think I would rather celebrate by eating a cupcake!

Camo Cupcakes

By on Monday, December 12th, 2011

My husband’s aunts made these cool camouflage cupcakes for a birthday party recently.  I love how these cupcakes allow you to make “ugly shades of cake batter”…what little boy wouldn’t love that? Plus, the shade can’t be messed up.

First, use brown and green food coloring to make the several ugly shades of cake batter and mix them together in cupcake liners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once they’ve been baked, they’ll look like this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then make an ugly shade of buttercream frosting and top it off:
