Hello Kitty Cupcakes

By on Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Almost everyone loves Hello Kitty, so today I thought I’d display a great Hello Kitty Cupcake set of nine cupcakes from Ipoet on Flickr.  The most stunning piece is the fondant modelling of the family, but if you look in the foreground of the image you can see pillow like hello kitty heads.  They look great and would not be too difficult to create.

Alphabet cupcakes! H is for hazelnut!

By on Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

And not just any old Hazelnut!!  Gourmet Hazelnut Cupcakes thank you!

Cupcakes should not only taste delicious, but should look appealing and exciting too.  To be honest I could show you the yummiest naked cupcake, and well it would look.. boring… truth is, these days every book is judged by its cover, and every cupcake by its decoration.  But that doesn’t mean to say that  a cupcake can just look good, because although we show you only a few dimensions, when you bake it up, you bring something we never can… that third dimension… taste…

Now I cannot really speak for these hazelnut cupcakes, as I am yet to bake them myself.  I love hazelnuts, but as yet haven’t quite had time… but these caramel stringy amazing hazelnut decorations… well they look amazing, so if you want to make an impact, they are a definite YES!… and if you try out the cupcake, let us know if it tastes as good as it looks!

Stand Up Cake Pops!!

By on Monday, May 9th, 2011

No longer does the cake pop have to take side stage to the mother of cakes (i.e. the standard every day cake), nor does it need to step aside for it’s biggest brother (the cupcake) or it’s big sister (the mini cupcake).  No, finally, today is the day that cake pops can take centre stage. Their very own multi layer cupcake stand!

Check these cupcake tower’s out!  They are so so versatile you can go all pops as shown here, or if you check out the other pictures you can see how you can combine cakes, cupcakes and cake pops.

You can of course find these awesome stands at the aptly named ‘The Cupcake Tower’.  So do the Monster mash and check out more of the pictures below!!!!

Love me doooo! Beatle cupcakes!

Found these AWESOME cupcakes today by the super talented Solange Queiroz!  Aren’t they fantastic!  I love this idea and it would be brilliant for a sixties party or a musical themed party… I can just imagine these four cupcakes atop a cupcake tower with all the other cupcakes decorated with screaming girl faces!

Alphabet cupcakes! G is for Ginger!

By on Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I tossed up today between Gin (yes please!), Ginseng (dubious for a cupcake) and the ever versatile, Ginger!  And in the end Ginger won!  And why wouldn’t it, perfect for the sweet dessert or for the main course, pickled, candied, ground or raw, it has a million and one uses, so it is only to be expected to find it somewhere in the kitchen!

This particular recipe I have chosen today uses ground ginger and candied ginger, and looks amazing to boot!  The recipe inspired by crockery is from the great baking website Not Quite Nigella!  I’m sure you’ll agree, they look pretty darn pretty in their Queen of Hearts styling!

Cupcake toppers with a personal touch!

By on Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Have you ever wanted to create cupcakes for a special occasion that really seem to celebrate the recipient?  I can think of many birthdays and celebrations where I have wanted to really give a personal touch to my cupcakes, but sometimes you just don’t have time to cut up 2-3 dozen pieces of cardboard, then inner cardstock and finally creating and cutting up those photos as well!

Well if you are in this situation, or just want to create something professional, then these toppers from Diva Entertains are seriously worth checking out, inexpensive and customizable, what more could you ask for?  Okay, ready cooked cupcakes wouldn’t go astray, but hey, that is where you can add your signature stamp!
