Red Riding Hood

By on Sunday, March 27th, 2011

As you probably know there is a new movie that has just been released called ‘Red Riding Hood’.  I am not sure about the USA, but here it has been trashed by pretty much every single newspaper, radio station and other media.  I haven’t seen it… and I am going to take their advice and not bother… but I hope kids still love the original story (whichever form you happen to have!  I love the early versions)

But whether you like a happy ending or a black one, you have to admit, these cupcakes by Leapula are absolutely amazing!

If You Give a Cat a Cupcake

By on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011


I’ve just fallen in love with a new children’s book. I am sort of obsessed with children’s books anyway, and this one is just irresistible.

It starts out with, “If you give a cat a cupcake, he’ll ask for some sprinkles to go with it. When you give him the sprinkles, he might spill some on the floor. Cleaning up will make him hot, so he will need a bathing suit …” The story goes on, with the poor child waiting on the cat, all because of that first cupcake.

The book is part of a series that includes If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Pig a Party.

If you are like me, and you read the same books every night until you want to cry, this one is a good pick. And if you don’t have little ones begging for books, this makes a great gift for someone who does! It is available from Better World Books for $13.98.

Desperate Cupcakes Note Cards

By on Friday, January 28th, 2011

My sister noticed these Desperate Cupcakes Note Cards at her college bookstore.  The card set contains the characters from the Desperate Cupcakes book featured in images that are said to be difficult situations, such as the one shown above where the cupcake is in yoga class.  Amazon offers the set of 16 cards for $11.04.

Anne of Green Gables

By on Friday, November 26th, 2010

Anthropologie is without a doubt one of my favorite stores.  I love these Clothbound Penguin Classics For Children.  According to the website’s description, “the revered books of childhood and adolescence are now bound in a brightly colored, smartly embossed canvas covers to add that much more excitement to their enduring stories”

There are six books available, each costing $16.99.  The one cupcake lovers will be most tempted to buy is Anne of Green Gables which has a pink cover with cupcakes, ribbons, butterflies, teapots and teacups.
