Camping Cupcakes

By on Friday, August 31st, 2012

Our family does a lot of camping (sometimes, I think, more than we need to) and this Labor Day weekend, we are gearing up for our last hoorah of the season. And these cupcakes from Angelina Cupcake actually make me excited about the trip.

Swarovski Cupcakes

By on Thursday, August 30th, 2012

In celebration of New York Fashion Week, Magnolia Bakery in Bloomingdale’s on 59th Street will be selling these lovely treats.  If you live in New York, hurry over from September 10-16 to try one out.  The rest of us will just have to imagine how lovely they taste.

Piano Cupcakes

I am teaching (ahem, trying to teach) my five-year-old to play the piano. Do y’all think any of these cupcakes might persuade her to be a bit more interested in tickling the ivories?

Westie Cupcakes

By on Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

I’m not sure which I love more–dogs or cupcakes. That’s why I’m quite so taken by these adorable “Westie Cupcakes” (Westie being a nickname for West Highland White Terrier) from Angelina Cupcake of Towcester, Northamptonshire. Almost too cute to eat! I recently participated in an adoption expo for our local animal shelter, and I wish I’d thought to bring along a batch of these! They would’ve found forever homes for sure!

1 Fine Cookie

1 Fine Cookie is at it again with these party cupcakes. These cupcakes are the party! Apparently, these candies are soaked in alcohol before being strung together. I want to know what she used for string…

 If you haven’t visited (and shopped from) Massachusetts’ 1 Fine Cookie, you should! The website is fun, funny, and tantalizing!

Disney Princess Cupcake Party Game

By on Monday, August 27th, 2012

My little princess’ birthday is coming up soon and I am thinking the Disney Princess Cupcake Party Game may be the perfect gift.  In this game, little ones work with the Disney princesses to make cupcakes before the fancy party.   Players follow recipe cards to pick the a pretty liner, frosting, and topper.  It is available from Target and Toys R Us for only $16.99.  I can’t wait to play!

Fuzzy Navel Cupcakes and other fun things

By on Monday, August 27th, 2012

Check out these alcohol-inspired (and infused) cupcakes being offered by The Sugar Shack in Lansing, Michigan this week. Feel like a drink? Have a cupcake instead!

The “Southern Pride” cupcake has pecans and bourbon in the cake and is topped with a butter cream that is loaded with dried cherries, pecans, and bourbon. Whoah!

The “Fuzzy Navel” is yellow cake with oranges and peaches baked in, and is frosted with a peach lemon butter cream. Yum! I think I’m going to attempt a batch of these!

And the innocent looking “Tooty Fruity” is a yellow cake loaded with rum soaked fruit and topped butter cream, sprinkles and a cherry.

Eat responsibly! ;)
