Cupcake Stamp

By on Monday, February 20th, 2012

I love this changing face cupcake stamp set from Memi The Rainbow.  The Parisian Etsy shop offers the set of 9 stamps for $35.00 that form different faced cupcakes.  You can make your cupcake laugh, smile, wink or sleep then add star or circle sprinkles to make a unique cupcake.

Spring Cupcakes

By on Monday, February 20th, 2012

It’s easy to forget, here in the northern U.S., in the doldrums of almost-March, that there is green grass in other parts of the world. Here is some evidence for you–some yummy flowers and butterflies from dapur Difa. Let’s think spring! Visit dapur Difa for more great cupcake decorating ideas, photos, and even cupcake bouquets!

St. Patrick’s Day Onesie

By on Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Now that Valentine’s Day has past the stores have all their St. Patrick’s Day merchandise on display.  I saw this cute cupcake baby onesie at my local TJMaxx.  A baby would look very festive in the onesie, tutu, and headband, if you can get the baby to keep the headband on!

Duncan Hines Birthday Cupcakes

Got a birthday coming up?  Having trouble deciding whether to do a cake or cupcakes?  (Of course, if you ask any of us at ATC, we will tell you to go with the cupcakes)!

You can truly have your cake and eat it, too, with this tiered birthday cake made from chocolate cupcakes from the Duncan Hines website.

Each tower is made of one standard-sized cupcake, a mini cupcake, and a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup (for the top tier).  Sounds delicious, and it looks beautiful, too!

We’ve seen this idea before, but somehow, it just bears repeating. Here is another Periodic Table of Cupcakes, this time from engineering student Rachel Howden.

Cupcakes at the San Diego Zoo

Birthday cupcakes

This is my new favorite cupcake photo. Ever. Today is Janey the orangutan’s 50th birthday. And of course, she’s celebrating it with a cupcake. She is celebrating at the San Diego Zoo, where she has lived since 1984. She is looking mighty good for 50! Happy Birthday fellow cupcake lover!

Cupcakes at Hobby Lobby

By on Friday, February 17th, 2012

Just last year, a Hobby Lobby store opened near my home and I have found this store to be my new favorite place to find amazing things.  It is mostly a store for craft supplies, but it also has a large amount of home decor.  My mom loves to call these “chachkies” (a Yiddish words for trinkets that gather dust).  My last trip to Hobby Lobby this week made me exceptionally happy because they have a new display of cupcake items! Check out these adorable wall hangers and trays.  

They also had utensils with cupcakes on the ends, single cupcake pedestals, ceramic cupcakes, plates and cupcake shaped measuring spoons. So worth a visit to your local Hobby Lobby!
