NBA Cupcakes

By on Friday, June 17th, 2011

While the Miami Heat was playing the Dallas Mavericks this past Sunday, one of ATC’s fans was celebrating with some cupcakes.  She got her idea for the cupcakes from a previous ATC post about batter babies, a divider that sits in the cupcake pan and allows you to make two-toned cupcakes.  What a great way to celebrate the big game!


Hello Kitty Cupcakes

By on Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Almost everyone loves Hello Kitty, so today I thought I’d display a great Hello Kitty Cupcake set of nine cupcakes from Ipoet on Flickr.  The most stunning piece is the fondant modelling of the family, but if you look in the foreground of the image you can see pillow like hello kitty heads.  They look great and would not be too difficult to create.

Dora the Explorer Cupcakes

Dora and friends 2

My daughter is 3 and is obsessed with Dora the Explorer. Unfortunately, whenever her mother tries to create Dora decorations, Dora comes out looking like a bloated alien with a bad haircut.

While searching for inspiration, I found this photo on Flickr. Sigh. They make it look so easy …

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.

Even though the ‘show of the moment’ is in debate with all the press about Charlie Sheen, Glee is still VERY popular, so today I thought I would bring you some more of the best Glee Cupcakes! Check these out…

This is so awesome, no more words required. This is created by SugarMama Cakes

This next collection is from MsBakeBake. I love the megaphone!

Care Bear Cupcakes

By on Monday, February 28th, 2011

One of my favorite past times is cruising the super creative network of talented cupcake decorator’s blogs out there in cyber land.  I’m always finding really cool and interesting ideas I wouldn’t have otherwise considered.  One such discovery is Bake Happy’s Care Bears!

Instead of creating full Care Bears on each cupcake (I hope you know who and what Care Bears are? because I have kind of just assumed everyone knows Care Bears), she has created two cupcakes for each one.  Best thing about this is you get double the cupcakes, and you can have fun matching the colored teddy head with the tummy patch!

Here they are mixed up!  To see if you know your Care Bears, try and match them all to the correct teddy bear head, then check out Bake Happy to see if you got it right!

Ghost Hunters Cupcakes

By on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Ghost Hunters fans are on the edges of their seats, as Season 7 premieres tonight at 8 EST. One fan in particular chose to celebrate in the best way — with cupcakes. Chelsea of Cupcake Adventures made these cupcakes, and I think the ghost hunters, and possibly even the ghosts, would be honored. Nice work Chelsea!
