Pharrell Williams Loves Cupcakes

By on Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Musician and more recently artist, Pharrell Williams was recently on the cover of Modern Painters. Inside, the article discussed some of Pharrell’s latest works of art including a line of chairs.  More importantly to all cupcake fans is the cupcake he created.  The cupcake is part of a series which features items that Williams views as underrated essentials.  The cupcake is made out of 18k white gold and 5,218 stones, including 32.61 ct. cognac diamonds, 15.39 ct. brown diamonds, and 44.5 ct. white diamond.  The piece of art stands 2¼ inches high and is 3 inches in diameter. The best part is in a vernissage interview Williams is claims “the irony and the twist of it, the poetry of the project is that no matter how good that looks to people, for me, the taste of cupcakes is worth far more than diamonds could ever be.”

By on Friday, October 30th, 2009

I just wanted to post real quick about the amazing Cupcake Costume on the Ellen Degeneres Show this Morning! It definitly looked like she jumped in an Extra Extra Extra Large foil cupcake wrapper! She was dancing and everything in it. Kellie Pickler who was on the show even mentioned something about how cute it was. I tried finding a picture of it online but i couldnt :-(

But i just wanted to share it with you all!

IMG_0978IMG_0980Modern Materials Tray, Placemats, and Napkins!

A favorite store is closing, and it is a heartbreaking reason why. Modern Materials is an AMAZING business started from scratch by Sheri and her husband. They had a beloved store in Salt Lake City, which closed due to Sheri’s battle with cancer. About a month ago, they reopened a store in Sugarhouse called Habitat by Modern Materials, which is AWESOME!! Sheri donated these fun napkins and tablecloths for the giveaway! Lyndsey added a bright orange tray she bought there, which is great to display cupcakes.

Sadly, though, Sheri emailed Lyndsey to tell her that she has been diagnosed with MS and is still fighting tumors, and will be closing on a permanent basis.  wanted to share that they are having a sale, effective now in Salt Lake City…more details will be in a separate post. They are located at 1297 Miller Avenue. Lyndsey is hoping they will still be able to operate their online store, www.modernmaterialsdesign.com, which features “affordable modern accessories and lighting.”

Michael Jackson Cupcakes

By on Monday, June 29th, 2009

Love him or hate him, he was undeniably a genius.  I found it fascinating that people have started to use cupcakes to express their feeling.  Now cupcakes aren’t only found at weddings, but also in mournings.

Here are some photos of Michael Jackson Cupcakes that have appeared nationwide.
