On the Third Day of Christmas

On the third day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

National Cupcake Day

By on Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

December 15th is officially National Cupcake Day.  Yes, there are other cupcake days, but they are centered around certain flavors:

National Chocolate Cupcake Day on Oct 18
National Vanilla Cupcake Day on Nov 10

In this spirit, I also want to share my favorite  Monkey Face Cupcakes.  I’ve had a blast making these with my kids, and they had a great time eating and playing with the fondant as if it was Playdoh.

Any cupcake cake or icing would be fine as the fun part really lies within making the monkey faces toppers; hoever,  if I were making this to impress, I would match it with this Banana Bread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.

For the topper itself, Aine explains the process:

Another option would be to not make an entire head, but just the face.  The face can then be applied on top of the cupcake and icing similar to these cupcake below from prettysweet boutique.

Organic Cupcake Bakery

Flower Cupcakes

Janderyn Makris of earthandsugar bakery supplied us with these stunning photos of cupcakes in the wild.  I believe these rare shots of cupcakes in their natural state were taken in the forests of Palm Beach county Florida!

In all seriousness, earthandsugar bakery is committed to making organic cupcakes using fair trade chocolate and cocoa powder, whole vanilla beans, fresh fruit, organic butter cream, and natural food dyes.

I believe they deliver to the southern Florida area after completing their order form.

Perler Bead Cupcake

I have an obsession with making cupcakes out of Perler Beads and I have a TON of them!
They are all really cute and I think they would be great additions to your page!

Thanks for sending us your artwork Kathryn! I think if you set these Perler Bead cupcakes inside a picture frame with pastel backgrounds, they would serve as fantastic decoration pieces for any room of the house.
