Cupcake Nail Art Decals

By on Thursday, March 7th, 2013

This has to be one of our favorite sayings here at All Things Cupcake! And now for only about $5, you can wear it on your nails. Fun? Yes! Quirky? Yes, that too!  These decals are being sold on Ebay from seller yr_nails_online and they have many, many different designs.  It seems that decal nail art is very much in (sweet) style!

How to apply:
1. Paint your nails with a clear base coat or a colour of your choice

2. Cut the Nail Decal to size allowing for some excess to trim

3. Soak the Nail Decal in warm water for 30-60 seconds

4. Remove from water, pat dry on a tissue and peel design from backing paper

5. Position onto nail and smooth down with finger and trim excess with nail scissors

6. Apply generous coats of clear top coat to protect your beautiful new design

7. Enjoy :)

Cupcake Clipart

By on Monday, February 25th, 2013

I love using a little clipart to brighten up my computer projects and what could be more perfect than cupcake clipart?  These totally sweet sets are available from Etsy seller, Dream Like Magic. Their shop is filled with over 200 graphic designs sets to be used for cards, invitations, Facebook covers, scrapbooking, stickers and Etsy banners.    I bought a banner from them a few years ago for my own Etsy shop (Stay Home Cupcake) and I could not be happier with it.  The only problem now is that Dream Like Magic has so many new choices, I may have to buy an update!

We’ve taken you to Fine Art America to see the cupcake work of Ryan Jones before, but the nerd in me just had to bring you this graphite drawing of his. It’s called, “I Find Your Lack of Hunger Disturbing.” Ha! Keep up the impressive work Ryan!

Fondant Art

By on Monday, September 3rd, 2012

I love the looks of this fondant art, which will soon be displayed in a hardware store–see, cupcakes are everywhere! Here’s what the creator has to say about this masterpiece:

A local hardware store is running a cupcake competition this month…I thought long and hard and this is my contribution, inspired by the beautiful work of Hello Naomi, and an illustration seen on Shutterstock. I’m not entirely satisfied with them though, so I think I might have to make a second contribution…

Ah, the true artist is never satisfied!

The Anatomy of a Cupcake

By on Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

The image, which can be found by clicking “continue reading,” was created by Frugal Dad and breaks down the anatomy of our favorite baked good, the cupcake. The graphic shows where the ingredients used for baking cupcakes come from and some of the negative implications from the increase in baking the popular treat. It’s informative and eye opening but I still enjoy baking and eating cupcakes! Read the rest of this entry »
