Rainbow Cloud Cupcakes

By on Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Are these beautiful, or what? Positively dreamy.

These Rainbow Cloud Cupcakes are available at Flour and Sun Bakery of Pleasantville, New York.

I’ll admit–I’m not sure how they did that frosting.

Hoosier Cupcakes

By on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I haven’t really kept up with college basketball, but I believe the Indiana Hoosiers are in first place? Either way, they are something to celebrate, and Indianapolis’s own cupcakery, The Flying Cupcake, is doing it in style with these clever Hoosier cupcakes. Very cute and likely quite delicious. It’s enough to make me watch college basketball!

A 30 calorie cupcake? Is it possible? These frozen yogurt cupcakes are easy to make (only 4 ingredients), beautiful, and good for you! It’s the perfect spring cupcake! You can find the recipe and instructions at Fit Sugar.

Cupcake Dental Floss

We recently brought you cupcake toothpaste, but we don’t want your dental care to be incomplete. So here’s your cupcake dental floss. Yum or ew? I found this sweet string at the local comic book store–what, that’s not where you buy your toiletries?–but you can also get some via Amazon. Don’t forget to floss!

White Russian and Banana Bourbon Cupcakes

By on Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

It’s been a while since a cupcake flavor has surprised and delighted me the way this does: White Russian and Banana Bourbon. Oh. My. How many can I eat and still drive home? I found these delectable creations at Silver Spoon Bakery of East Greenwich, Rhode Island.

Portland Maine Cupcakery

By on Monday, February 25th, 2013

I recently paid my first visit to East End Cupcakes, which is, I believe, the only cupcakery in Portland, Maine. (If there’s another one, let me know, because I couldn’t find it!)

East End Cupcakes is ideally located right in the Old Port. Somehow, eating a cupcake while walking down cobblestone streets just feels right. On the day I visited, they had an offering of classic hits, including chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet. I chose the “chocolate salted caramel,” a chocolate cupcake topped with lightly flavored caramel frosting and sprinkled with sea salt.

We cupcake reviewers have noticed a trend toward creamier frostings, and away from sweeter frostings. East End Cupcakes seems to be on that bandwagon. Their frosting was airy and smooth. (Granted, had I tried the red velvet, I may have found a more substantial frosting there).

The store itself is adorable and seemed like a cool place to hang out. There was more seating than I’ve seen in a lot of similar sized bakeries.

Also, if you’re planning to plan a Portland area party soon, you might like to know that East End offers cupcake decorating parties! This strikes me as a fine idea. Here’s what they have to say on it:

Perfect for a unique birthday celebration for a 5 year old or a 50 year old! At your cupcake decorating party an East End representative will come to the event location with baked cupcakes and frosting in a variety of colors and flavors. Your party guests will get to create their own cupcakes using piping bags and edible decorations. We will provide aprons, guidance and clean up. At the end of the event, your guests will be able to take home their creations in one of East End’s signature pink boxes!

Monday’s a Cupcake!

By on Monday, February 25th, 2013

Just spotted these girls’ undies at Old Navy.

When I saw that Monday was a cupcake, of course I had to pick them up! (Plus, they were 40% off!)

Still not sure what the point of labeling your undies with days of the week is exactly, but hey–the Mondays are cute!
