Snow Globe Cupcakes

By on Friday, January 20th, 2012

All day I have felt like I am trapped in a giant snow globe.  Snow has finally arrived in Chicago and it has fallen continuously all day long.  So, in light of all this, I decided to Google snow globe cupcakes.  Here’s what I found.

These are really cute and would be especially fun for a detail-oriented person.  Find detailed directions on this blog.















These look a little more challenging (in my opinion).  This person bought a clear plastic ornament, cut off the end with a saw (that’s why I say challenging), sprayed the inside with water, and then swirled in some white decorating flakes to give it a snowy appearance.  The figures are made of fondant.












Either way, your cupcakes are sure to impress!

Cupcake Cannon!

By on Friday, January 20th, 2012

Okay, so this isn’t a traditional All Things Cupcake delivery, but it’s Friday, so I figured what the heck–who wouldn’t like to see cupcakes shot from a cannon? The video was inspired by Johnny Cupcakes–go figure. Enjoy!


Elmo Cupcakes!

By on Thursday, January 19th, 2012

My son (3) claims that Elmo is drastically underrepresented in the cupcake world. But I just found this decorating idea at This Mommy Loves, complete with instructions. She recommends red Wilton cupcake wrappers, but I’ve also seen Elmo cupcake wrappers at my local craft store, so you might want to look for those too!

Cupcake Earrings

By on Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Finding cupcake jewelry that doesn’t look too kiddish can be tough.  So today I headed over to Etsy to see what kind of cupcake earrings I could wear with pride without someone asking me, “Are those your daughter’s earrings? “

Carrot Zucchini Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

I have been looking for some healthy and creative ways to incorporate veggies into my picky baby’s diet.  After visiting the Whole Foods website, I think I have found the thing, and it just so happens to be in the form of a cupcake (though I will probably confiscate the frosting and eat it myself).  These carrot zucchini cupcakes incorporate both a green veggie and an orange veggie into a cupcake.  This recipe also adds additional nutrition by using whole wheat flour and replacing some of the oil with unsweetened applesauce.  I can’t wait to give these a try!

Reeses Owl Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Owls seem to be all the rage lately! Why wouldn’t they be with all the cute owl things I see around – checks, wallets, earrings, etc. You want it (with owls), you got it!

If you want Owl Cupcakes, we got those too. These are so stinking adorable!
