Cute Little Chick Cookie Cupcake

By on Thursday, March 28th, 2013

These cupcakes by The Adventures of Sugarbelle are seriously the cutest Easter cupcakes I have ever seen!  At first I thought the head of the chick was a macaron but after scrolling down further and looking at the image closer I realized they are little chick cookie cupcakes!  They cupcakes look easy to put together but I have a feeling this would be an all day decorating event so if you’re planning on these better start soon!

Meri Meri Happy Easter Cupcake Treat Kit

By on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Meri Meri is one of my favorite companies, everything they make is very cute, especially their cupcake topper sets.  For Easter they have this Happy Easter Cupcake Treat Kit on the Hearth Song website.  The kit, which costs $12.99 includes two egg boxes with tags and ribbons, 24 mini cupcake liners, and 12 cupcake toppers.  I love that the cupcakes are displayed in the egg carton, such a festive idea that you could easily replicate on your own after dying a dozen Easter eggs!

3 Easter Cupcake Ideas from Parade

By on Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Each Sunday I like to flip through the Parade Magazine that comes inside the Sunday newspaper with the coupons and flyers.  There is usually a good recipe or two inside.  This week, in preparation for Easter there is a vanilla cupcake recipe and three Easter cupcake decorating ideas.  I think I have seen versions of these over the years but sometimes it’s good to see an old idea again.  Personally I still love the “hot chick” because it looks too easy to mess up!

I found these creative Bunny’s Carrot Garden Easter Cupcakes on Wilton’s website.  I know filled cupcakes are very popular right now and I think these cupcakes would be a huge hit at any Easter celebration!  Most of the reviews say that they are easy to make and guest liked them.

Happy Spring and Macaron Day

By on Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Happy Spring! It seems the cool weather has every one, even Mother Nature thinking it’s still winter.  Today happens to also be Macaron Day.  As a dessert lover and a fan of all things Parisian, I love macarons.  I dare to ask, have you noticed how they are kind of the new cupcake, Paper Source has a good selection of macaron gift items!  If you are like me and love both macarons and cupcakes and of course you love spring, you could make these macaron cupcakes like Polka Dot Bride made! They are colorful, springy, and the perfect way to enjoy both treats!

Duo Icing Set

By on Monday, March 11th, 2013

I know I have shared my love of Sur La Table in the past and I am so excited that in the last few months a store opened up at my local mall.  The only down side to having the store near by is I see and want things like this Duo Icing Set.  What an ingenious idea! For $14.95 you get eight bags and six tips.  The bags are not your ordinary bags, these bags have a divider down the middle so you can simultaneously pipe two colors at one time!

I found these handmade cupcake toppers featuring a watercolor bird painting on Poppytalk Handmade.  The toppers were created by artist Renee Anne. Renee Anne sells the toppers on her Etsy site for $10.00 for a set of 12.  There are also bee and rabbit cupcake toppers; each topper has a matching garland available for sale on Renee Anne’s Etsy.
