The Perfect Vanilla Cupcake

By on Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

As much as I love all the crazy and unique cupcake flavors my favorite cupcake is usually a simple vanilla cupcake.  I noticed She Makes and Bakes blog post for the perfect vanilla cupcake and it peaked my interest.  My favorite vanilla cupcakes usually have real vanilla beans in them in addition to vanilla extract so we will see how these, which only call for extract, turn out.   I haven’t tried these cupcakes yet as I decided to give up desserts for lent but as soon as Easter arrives I’m going to test these out.  Click “continue reading” for She Makes and Bakes’s recipe.

Cupcake Clipart

By on Monday, February 25th, 2013

I love using a little clipart to brighten up my computer projects and what could be more perfect than cupcake clipart?  These totally sweet sets are available from Etsy seller, Dream Like Magic. Their shop is filled with over 200 graphic designs sets to be used for cards, invitations, Facebook covers, scrapbooking, stickers and Etsy banners.    I bought a banner from them a few years ago for my own Etsy shop (Stay Home Cupcake) and I could not be happier with it.  The only problem now is that Dream Like Magic has so many new choices, I may have to buy an update!

In the northeast US right now, the weather’s not so hot. In many places, it’s a downright slushy mess. That’s why Wicked Good Cupcakes of Cohasset, Massachusetts has put some cute little galoshes on their Monday cupcakes. They sure brighten a rainy day, don’t you think?

DIY Monster Valentine’s Day Cupcakes

By on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

My sister and I have a weird love of cute monsters.  If she was home I would definitely make her cupcakes and top them with these DIY free printable monster Valentine’s Day flags and toppers.  I like how the monsters make this download a little bit different and more boy friendly.  Ellinee of Handcraft Your Life made a whole party kit so don’t forget the candy wrappers and stickers!

Pug Cupcakes

By on Saturday, February 9th, 2013

I have a ten year old cousin that is obsessed with pugs.  She has pug clothing and pug stuffed animals and repeatedly tries to talk her dad into getting a pug.  I think she would love these pug cupcakes! I on the other hand am not crazy about pugs so I’ll ask you cupcake fans, are these pug cupcakes “pugly” or “pawfectly cute?”

I love how CupCake FabuLous decorated these Valentine’s Day cupcakes. Does anyone know what decorating tip they used? CupCake FabuLous is a family-owned cupcakery that has been serving the Dallas area since 2007. They also make twinkies! They’re enough to make a person move to Texas!
