Sand Castle Cupcake Display

By on Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

In anticipation of summer, here is a sand castle cupcake that I thought was really cute.  You could do all kinds of things with this.  You could even have a contest to see who can come up with the most creative sand castle cupcake (a much cooler and cleaner alternative to actually getting in the sand, right?).

This display uses finely crushed Nilla Wafers for the sand, graham crackers for the drawbridge, black licorice for the chains, and Teddy Grahams for the people.

Time for Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

I am daily amazed by the works of art I see on Etsy.  Today I found the sweetest clocks I have ever seen! They are made by All Things Cupcake sponsor,  AngelHeartDesigns and they are only $38 each. Love, love, love!  And check out the rest of her shop for other adorable works of art!

 

Cupcake Gift Boxes

By on Monday, May 14th, 2012

I give away a lot of cupcakes. Not really because I’m a nice person (even though I am), but because I need to get them out of my house. Just because I enjoy baking and decorating two dozen cupcakes, doesn’t mean I need to eat two dozen cupcakes. And it’s always a struggle to transport them in such a way as to not damage my decorating efforts. We all know plastic wrap is a bad idea. And although I’m sure my friends don’t mind getting a cupcake in a cottage cheese container, there must be a better way, right? There is! Until I went looking, I had no idea how many cupcake box options there are through Wilton. They are a little pricey (3 small boxes for $3.29 or 2 big boxes for $5.29), but when you’re giving the gift of cupcakes, it is tempting to splurge.

Cupcake Sidewalk Chalk

It’s definitely the time of year to get outside and enjoy the nice days before they get too hot.  At my house, we are having lots of fun decorating the sidewalks with sidewalk chalk.  I just came across this cupcake-shaped chalk on Etsy.  I think these would even make great party favors for a girl’s summer birthday party.

Panda Cupcakes

Well it doesn’t get much cuter than giant panda cupcakes. (The pandas are giant, not the cupcakes.) But don’t eat them–they’re endangered!

Just in Time for Mother’s Day

Are you still in need of some last-minute ideas for Mother’s Day? I think there are at least two things that most every Mom would love to have: relaxation and cupcakes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t think you could go wrong with these “Momosa Cupcakes”.  These cupcakes are made to look like mimosas.  They fit inside a champagne glass and they even have bubbles.  See this tutorial for detailed instructions.

So give your Mom (or wife) a chance to sit back and relax with one of these this Mother’s Day! She surely won’t forget it, and she will probably be extremely impressed with your cupcake-making abilities.
