Valentine’s Gift

By on Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

There is still plenty of time left to find something sweet for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day! How about this adorable neclace from from Etsy seller, The Wicked Shop. It comes to us from Canada for only $9.20.   This pendant started out as a plain ole Scrabble tile, but The Wicked Shop turned it into something special. Someone please let me honey know that I would love to receive this next week!

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, February 5th, 2013


A few years ago we shared these chocolate avocado cupcakes from The Vegetarian Times with you.  The recipe sounded interesting and I have always been curious to see what a chocolate avocado cupcake would taste like but I never got around to buying all the ingredients.  Actually I have never bought tofu so I was excited to find another chocolate avocado cupcake recipe.  This recipe is NOT vegan but it does use lots of ingredients that I tend to have on hand like Greek yogurt and buttermilk.  These chocolate Avocado cupcakes by Itsy Bitsy Foodies are officially back on my “to bake” list, are they on yours?  Have you tried them?

Rum Caramel Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes

By on Monday, February 4th, 2013

I recently read about Chasing Delicious’s blog as part of The Sweetest Occasion’s 2013 up and coming blog list from Alt Summit.  Every one of Chasing Delicious’s recipes looks amazing.  These rum caramel chocolate cinnamon cupcakes are complicated, requiring making three different parts, but the picture makes me think they would be worth all the work.  I really wish I was one of his friends he talked about in the blog post and I could have tried one of these cupcakes!

Mini Football Cupcakes

By on Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Mini Football Cupcakes are the perfect dessert for a Superbowl party tomorrow.  The cupcakes are festive and they are mini which means people are more likely to take them.  I think people are more likely to take mini desserts because they don’t feel as guilty eating a small portion.  On a night like Superbowl Sunday when there are tons of foods and desserts at parties I think you are better off brining a small bite sized dessert that way people can sample other things.

Project Domestication made these mini football cupcakes a few years ago but they are still one of my favorite football cupcakes because they are so easy to frost and decorate. Her cupcakes are chocolate-mint flavored but you can make any chocolate flavor you or your friends like!

Groundhogs Cupcakes

By on Friday, February 1st, 2013

Groundhogs Day is tomorrow and even though here in North Carolina we have had a mild winter so far, I am hoping the groundhog does not see his shadow!  I am ready for spring weather!  I love these Groundhogs cupcakes created by Bloom Designs using green frosting, sprinkles, and teddy grahams.  The cupcakes are so easy and the teddy graham looks cute popping out of the frosted cupcake!

Cupcakes + Valentine’s Day =True Love

Cupcake Place Mat from Kohl’s $4.79 each

I love walking through the stores this time of year because so many stores pair cupcakes and hearts in their Valentine’s decor items. So far I have spotted cuppies in the Valentine’s sections at Walmart, Target, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Christmas Tree Shop and Kohl’s.  So a big thank you to all the stores who join cupcakes and hearts this holiday season.  You make it so much more special for the cupcake obsessed.  All Things Cupcake appreciates you!

White Chocolate Shavings

By on Friday, January 25th, 2013

I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this, but I love it. These white chocolate shavings make a positively elegant cupcake garnish! This photo is courtesy of foodie photographer Esther Fox. And just in case you’ve never played with chocolate shavings before, it is super easy! Just use your vegetable peeler. Then, the next time you go to peel carrots, you’ll have an irresistible cupcake craving!
