Cupcake Galore Part 1

By on Thursday, November 4th, 2010

As I was looking around for Christmas gifts this past weekend I cam across this great online store, Perpetual Kid . This website is all about entertaining your inner child, it’s a great site.

The best things about this website is their sections called Robots & Cupcakes, amazing!

Here are a few of my favorite items I found, Part 1 (too much fun stuff to share in one post!!)

Let it all out with the Stress Cupcake!


Keep your hands warm with these lovely Cupcake Hand Warmers!

Technicolor Dreamcake from Watertown, MA

By on Sunday, May 30th, 2010

These spectacular modern art pieces are in fact totally edible cupcakes. ATC reader Nicola make them for the diner she works at in Watertown, MA. Nicola says that they’re just your usual chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting, with the secret ingredients being food coloring and Nicola’s expert frosting skills. “To make the spikes I use round tips and just pull away while loosening my grip”, says Nicola.

Nicola wrote to us with a puzzling quandary concerning her amazing technicolor cupcakes:

Everyone that comes into the store is amazed by the cupcakes, but I get asked a dozen times a day if they’re real! How can I make my cupcakes look more “real” and edible? I also get told that they are too pretty to eat. Am I supposed to make them uglier? Any suggestions??

I say that she keeps them just the way they are – I think they look great. Besides putting up some “yes, they’re real!” signage, the only thing I can think of to do is to get friends and regulars to become “cupcake models”. It shouldn’t be too hard to get some folks to eat those awesome-looking cupcakes in a public place, right?

I am hoping you can help me. My wife and I are professional clowns and we have a purple golf cart. I am Jelly Bean and she is Kupkake. I am trying to find a BIG rubber/foam cupkake to put on the roof of our golf cart for parade. Do you have any idea where I can get one. Thank you very much.
