Owl Cupcakes

By on Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Owl cupcakes are always a good option this time of year.  This recipe suggests using store-bought chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and using oreos and m&ms for the eyes and beak.  I don’t think it gets much easier than this, and your cupcakes are sure to be a hoot with all your friends.


Cupcake Pumpkins

By on Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Looking for a cute centerpiece for a fall birthday?  How about making these cupcakes from pumpkins!  I saw the idea at the North Carolina State Fair and love how easy and fun it is! Best of all there is no mess since you are not carving the pumpkins.

NC State Fair Cupcakes

By on Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Today is the last day of the Raleigh, North Carolina State Fair.  My parents went to the fair earlier in the week and brought back some amazing cupcakes!  Neomonde, a local Lebanese and Mediterranean Cafe and Grocery, had a booth at the fair where they were selling cupcakes.  I had no idea that Neomonde  which normally only sells baklava in the cafe, also makes cupcakes to sell to restaurants and hotels!  My parents bought two festive flavors, sweet potato and pumpkin (shown to the left), both of which were delicious!

The second cupcakes my parents bought were from BlueBird Cupcakes located in Raleigh, North Carolina.  These cupcakes were also new to me and we also delightful! My parents picked an apple caramel cinnamon, a s’more, and a crumb coffee cake cupcake.   Each cupcake, shown to the left, was better than the next! BlueBird Cupcakes doesn’t have a store front but they do deliver for free to the Triangle area!

Halloween Cupcake Cards

Do you send out Halloween cards? I send Halloween cards to a few of my friends and family members that live far away.  I already have my cards picked out for this year but I’m bookmarking this set of 12 Halloween cupcake cards for next year.  The set from Milk Box Prints costs $22.00 and features two designs, a witch and a spider cupcake.

Cupcake “To Go” Containers

By on Friday, October 19th, 2012

Have cupcake, will travel? I just found these cupcake “to go” containers at Walmart, in the baking aisle. Might be a cute idea if you’re into giving cupcakes as gifts. Also be a good conversation starter when you whip this out of your lunchbox.

Cupcake Dive

By on Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Now here’s an idea: a cupcake dive! Do you live near the western shore of Michigan? Do you plan on getting married soon? Would you like to dive into a table full of delicious cupcakes? If you just said yes three times, you’re in luck.

Little River Casino of Manistee, Michigan is holding a “cupcake dive” this Sunday, October 21st at their bridal show.

Ten contestants will win a chance to dive into a table of cupcakes, looking for a diamond engagement ring.

Megan’s Cupcakes of Cadillac will supply 250 cupcakes for the event.

Good luck to all the contestants. May you not be distracted by a red velvet and continue on the diamond hunt!
