Red Velvet Cupcakes Play Pivotal Role in FOX’s Chicago Code

By on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Are you watching FOX’s new cop drama, The Chicago Code? You should be. The show is a knockout. Well-written, well-executed, and a star-studded cast. Australian dreamboat Jason Clarke and the gorgeous and uber-talented Chicago-born Jennifer Beals lead the way with stellar backing from critically acclaimed Delroy Lindo and up-and-coming Friday Night Lights standout Matt Lauria.

But what you really want to hear about is the cupcakes, right? Adam Arkin (The West Wing, Life, Chicago Hope) joined the series last night as a big and bad FBI hot shot, bent on pushing our lovely Jennifer Beals around. At first, things didn’t look good for the Chicago Superintendant of Police, but then she brought in a platter of red velvet cupcakes. And as the FBI agent and the Super munched on some cupcakes, they came to a compromise that moved watchers to tears. Then they licked their fingers. The whole thing was easily believable.

According to one of the show’s writers, the actors had to eat those cupcakes through six takes of the scene. Oh! Acting is such a rough gig! I’m hoping the show sets a precident. Crime can be fought, problems can be solved, corruption can be conquered, if we would just sit down together and have some cupcakes.

Lauren Conrad Cupcake Photo

Reality TV fan or not, you have to agree that Lauren Conrad has great style! Personally I like her LC line carried by Kohl’s.  For one of the dresses in her spring collection, Lauren poses with cupcakes! I love the dress and the spring feeling from the picture, it even has a little Alice In Wonderland vibe. Even though the dress doesn’t have cupcake on it, if you want to look as cute as Lauren you can purchase the dress from Kohl’s for $44.99.

Happy Birthday Keanu Reeves

By on Sunday, September 5th, 2010

Keanu Reeves has always been a bit mysterious, and apparently, he celebrated his 46th birthday this past Friday enjoying a single cupcake, bearing a single candle, by himself outside a film prop warehouse. 

There is nothing wrong with a little solitude, especially when it is accompanied by a little sweet.  Happy Birthday Keanu!

Lea Michele’s Vegan Cupcake in a Jar

By on Monday, August 30th, 2010

 

There are few things in life that I love more than Glee, Fox’s hit musical comedy.  While Glee did win a few Emmys last night, I was disappointed that Lea Michele, who stunningly plays the character of Rachel, did not win.  She was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and I think she should have won, but she is young, and I can root for her for years to come.  Yesterday was her 24th birthday.  I remember where I spent my 24th birthday, and it certainly wasn’t at the Emmys.  But all is well that ends well because guess what she got for her birthday?

Pre-show host Billy Bush presented her with a vegan cupcake in a jar.  And though I would be pretty darn excited about such a gift, this red carpet gal pronounced the gift both “ghetto” and “cool.”

Christina Applegate’s pregnancy diet

I was reading today in Celebrity Baby Scoop that Christina Applegate has admitted to having a different kind of died during her pregnancy.  Apparently her healthy diet has fled in the wake of some serious food cravings, and what did she indulge on?

What else but a Sprinkles Cupcake and fried cheese!

So I thought I would assist Christina in her challenge to more closely combine these two taste sensations, and thanks so much to Clever Cupcakes found this – the cheese cupcake!
