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!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!  I hope you all have a very lucky day and if you’re old enough you have a green beer or one of these Guinness, Jameson & Baileys cupcakes!  These triple liquor cupcakes have Guinness in the frosting, Jameson in the chocolate ganache, and Baileys in the frosting.  Topped with a small green shamrock, these cupcakes by Cake & Allie look festive and delicious!

Emerald Isle Cupcakes

By on Friday, March 15th, 2013

There are so many different options for St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes.  At first it seems like the classic dyed green is the only option but when you start thinking about it there are Irish car bomb cupcakes, mint variations of cupcakes, lucky charms cupcakes, and these Emerald Isle Cupcakes from Gooseberry Patch.  Instant pistachio pudding mix gives the cake portion their green coloring and a few drops off food coloring help add a darker festive green to the frosting.
