Cupcakes + Valentine’s Day =True Love

By on Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Cupcake Place Mat from Kohl’s $4.79 each

I love walking through the stores this time of year because so many stores pair cupcakes and hearts in their Valentine’s decor items. So far I have spotted cuppies in the Valentine’s sections at Walmart, Target, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Christmas Tree Shop and Kohl’s.  So a big thank you to all the stores who join cupcakes and hearts this holiday season.  You make it so much more special for the cupcake obsessed.  All Things Cupcake appreciates you!

Cupcake Stamp

By on Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

I always try to make mail and packages look as visually appealing as possible.  I have a large collection of washi tape, stickers, and stamps that I use to decorate.  As soon as I saw on Lindsay Letter’s website the cupcake stamp I knew I would have to add the stamp to my collection!  I love simple, yet detailed cupcake stamp that costs $25.00 and would be packaging some Valentine’s Day cupcakes!

Firefly Cupcakes

Okay, I know we are going a little old school here, but Firefly fans will immediately recognize this clever recreation of the great Jayne Cobb’s famous hat. This “Cobb hat cupcake” was created by Savoureux Cupcakery. And of course, the great Jayne Cobb is aptly portrayed by the great Adam Baldwin.

White Chocolate Shavings

I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this, but I love it. These white chocolate shavings make a positively elegant cupcake garnish! This photo is courtesy of foodie photographer Esther Fox. And just in case you’ve never played with chocolate shavings before, it is super easy! Just use your vegetable peeler. Then, the next time you go to peel carrots, you’ll have an irresistible cupcake craving!

Rainbow Cupcakes

This cupcake makes me smile. I’ve seen rainbows on top of cupcakes before. But this is the first time I can remember seeing a rainbow in a cupcake. This pic was taken by Jonathan Syer, who loves to photograph cupcakes! (Who doesn’t?)
