Olympic Torch Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Be sure to bake some cupcakes for any Olympics parties you might be having this summer.  I, personally, think these are pretty neat.  All you need are sugar ice cream cones, a batch of mini cupcakes, frosting and candy clay (recipe here).  Have fun!

Cute Elephant Cupcakes

By on Monday, July 30th, 2012

I’m not sure why I find these elephant cupcakes so adorable. Maybe because I recently visited the Indianapolis Zoo, and I couldn’t stop staring at the baby elephant? He was just too cute! And so are these cupcakes. Cute, yet simple enough to feasibly create. At least, I’m going to try. These were created by All You Need is Cupcakes, a cupcakery in Argentina. Cupcakes are taking over the world!


Cupcake Mosaic Sets a World Record

By on Sunday, July 29th, 2012

A new Guinness World Record was set today in Singapore for the world’s largest cupcake mosaic.  A whopping 20,000 cupcakes formed the mosaic, which beat the previous record of 5,900 cupcakes by quite a lot!  The mosaic was created to help benefit under privileged youths and low-income families.

Who gets to eat all these cupcakes, you’re probably wondering?  The cupcakes were adopted by donors and sent to homes for the elderly, disabled and children.

Cupcake Jars

A few days ago Candid Cupcake shared with you how mason jars are very in right now.  She is so right- they seem to be all over Etsy!  Mason jar covers, Mason jar candles, and of course, Mason jar cupcakes.  And I know these aren’t technically Mason jars but how amazing are these faux icing topped glass jars?    For $28 you get a set of 6 colorful creations made by 12 Legs Curiosities. Perfect for cupcake in a jar or as a favor at a wedding or party.  Love, love, love!

Are you looking to make one of your favorite meals kid-pleasing?  Why not put it in cupcake form?  Take a look at these Philly Cheese Steak Cupcakes.  Use won ton wraps in muffin tins, add some ground beef and diced onions and green peppers, top with mozzarella cheese and another won ton wrap, and you have a simple meal.  These would also make a lovely appetizer to take to a party.
