Football Cupcakes from Crumbs

By on Thursday, January 26th, 2012

So many people ask me what my favorite bakery is and I always have to answer Crumbs! I love their huge, overly sweet treats. They do tend to be a bit pricey but to me, they so worth it.   And even if you don’t live close to a Crumbs, they will deliver. They have a variety of shipping options but the cheapest is  UPS ground shipping for about $20 (plus the cost of the cupcakes).  They come delivered in an insulated container with dry ice.  Check out these football cupcakes- great for the party that has a mix of Giants and Patriots fans. 

Cupcake Ottomans

By on Thursday, January 26th, 2012

I shiver the think of all the uses I could get out of a cupcake ottoman. You can sit on it, rest your feet on it, store treasures in it, let the kids play with it–what a fantastic addition to your cupcake home decor! I found these at Meijer for $49.99 each. These were the only two colors I found, but there weren’t many left when I got there, so your Meijer might have more options!

Skymall Cupcake Rug

By on Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Sometimes I buy items to give as gifts pretty far in advance.  While it’s great being prepared it can be hard to keep things a secret.  I bought this cupcake rug from Skymall in the fall and saved it to give as a gift this month.  I know the recipient reads ATC on a regular basis so I had to resist writing about the rug until after the gift was given.  The rug was $29.95, measures  30″L x 28”H, and actually looks really nice.  Skymall has a few other cupcake items available on their website so if you buy the rug be sure to look around the site!

Eat Cake for Breakfast!

Come on now, we can all admit that at least once we didn’t have time to make breakfast and we grabbed the first thing we saw on the counter – a cupcake(or cake, brownie, pie … the list could go on).

Apparently designer, Kate Spade has done the same and has proclaimed it on a tote bag.

Superbowl Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Looking for some interesting cupcakes to take to a Superbowl party?  I’m not sure how I feel about Buffalo Chicken Wing cupcakes, but if there’s ever a good time for trying out something like this, then Superbowl Sunday would be the time.














Blue cheese and hot sauce make this cupcake unique among other cupcakes.  And, of course, the chicken wing that tops it all off.



Wilton Kids

I was recently wandering around my local Meijer when I discovered that Wilton has a new (and very exciting) line of kids’ cupcake decorating fun. If you’ve got a little baker (or decorator) in your life, you should definitely check this out. Or, even if you don’t, you still might want to check it out.

And here’s a video demonstration of the “Topping Tornado.”

Society 6 Cupcake Prints

When I Grow Up Print-Stephanie Corfee

Over the weekend I spent some time browsing around Society6 checking out some of the different artwork the site has to offer.  I loved some of the fun cupcake prints that are available!  Since it’s been raining the past few days in North Carolina the Pick Me Up On A Rainy Day print seems perfect.  I also really like the When I Grow Up print, I would love being a cupcake sprinkler too!  The Operation Cupcake Printwas another one that I liked.  I love that the cupcakes were brave enough to jump out of the plane!  Each print is available in different sizes and there are lots of other cupcake prints to choose from!
