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!

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.

Shamrock Milkshake Cupcakes

The past few years when it’s time for St. Patrick’s Day I start seeing the McDonald’s commercials for their Shamrock Shake.  The mint flavored, bright green colored shake is the inspiration behind these shamrock milkshake cupcakes from Better Homes and Gardens.  Buttermilk and creme de menthe give these cupcakes their minty milkshake flavoring.

Cupcake Nail Art Decals

By on Thursday, March 7th, 2013

This has to be one of our favorite sayings here at All Things Cupcake! And now for only about $5, you can wear it on your nails. Fun? Yes! Quirky? Yes, that too!  These decals are being sold on Ebay from seller yr_nails_online and they have many, many different designs.  It seems that decal nail art is very much in (sweet) style!

How to apply:
1. Paint your nails with a clear base coat or a colour of your choice

2. Cut the Nail Decal to size allowing for some excess to trim

3. Soak the Nail Decal in warm water for 30-60 seconds

4. Remove from water, pat dry on a tissue and peel design from backing paper

5. Position onto nail and smooth down with finger and trim excess with nail scissors

6. Apply generous coats of clear top coat to protect your beautiful new design

7. Enjoy :)

It’s been a while since a cupcake flavor has surprised and delighted me the way this does: White Russian and Banana Bourbon. Oh. My. How many can I eat and still drive home? I found these delectable creations at Silver Spoon Bakery of East Greenwich, Rhode Island.
