Fleur Daily Cupcake Vases

By on Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Sometimes, ideas are so perfect we wonder how no one has thought of them before.  For example:  Plastic cupcake vases that come in six delicious colors.  Brilliant!  They look like cupcakes, but they’re not.  Instead, the top of the “cupcake” is full of little holes, perfectly stem-sized, so you can insert the flowers into the cupcake at just the right angles. And voilà! You have yourself a perfect bouquet.  The vases are unbreakable, reusable, and only cost $10.95.  Learn more about them, or start your collection by visiting Fleur Daily online.

Looking for the perfect party favor?

By on Sunday, September 5th, 2010

So you are planning the best birthday bash, the most wonderful wedding?  Have you organized great music, food, a perfect venue and have fantastic cupcakes planned for the occasion?  So after all this planning and preparation you know that your guests are going to remember your party for a long time to come!  Right?  Well maybe, but what will help is a visual prompt to take them back to that day!

My daughter is constantly looking at things and recalling the day we got them, like the Mothers day shopping list stuck to our fridge.  She tells me about buying it for me every second morning when she sees it!

To create your own visual prompt why not add a magnet to your party invite or to your party favor bag / box?  This could be the perfect thing for people to remember the date of an upcoming party and the fun they have had long after the event.  I found these in our ATC sponsor’s store Diva Entertains and just had to share them with you.  You personalize them with what ever you want to say, choose the background color (where applicable) and presto.

What do you think? Have you ever received a really bad party favor and what was it?  I would love to know!  Or do you know of some really good party favors?  I found some heart shaped measuring spoons which were really cool, though I am not sure that people not into baking would like it so much, though I’d take theirs, one set is never enough! :)

New engagement cupcakes

What to choose as the cupcake design when you are getting engaged?

One thing is for sure, you will need a lot of them, so it is probably best to go for a simple design, but if you still want something amazing and stunning then these cupcakes by Isabella’s Sweet Tooth are sure to be perfect.

Depending on the amount of time you have you can create just 3-5 of the amazing little fondant birds (in white cuts down on time mixing a color), or just go with that funky heart!

When creating a tall stand up cupcake topper like the heart, use a toothpick in the fondant.  This also makes it easy for those eating it to remove it!

Cover your other cupcakes with the same color icing to create a uniform look, even thought the actual decoration on top may be different and less work.  Isabella’s Sweet Tooth cupcakes are vanilla with strawberry buttercream.

Wedding Cake vs Wedding Cupcake

By on Sunday, August 8th, 2010

What do you think??

Do we need to keep it traditional and go cake over cupcake?  Are we messing with an age old tradition?  Do cupcakes really not have a place at this big event?

I ask the question, because Muskoee Phoenix has a story that suggests that when the author goes to a wedding she wants “to see two things”, that being “the bride’s gown, and a work of art, the wedding cake.”  She goes on to say that “they should not be served on the most important day of a woman’s life, next to having a baby.”

I’m sorry, but in my view it is your wedding and so therefore your choice!  Cake or cupcake, why not? and given some of the gorgeous cuppies around, you can certainly go glamorous with the little ones, like these gorgeous cupcakes from Ban Bakes – In Paris!  But what do you think?

Do you love cupcakes but think they don’t have a place at a wedding?

Carrie Underwood Loves Cupcakes Too!

By on Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

The new issue of People Magazine will hit the stands this Friday and it will feature 5 pages of photos from Carrie Underwood‘s July 10th wedding, where she tied the knot with professional hockey player Mike Fisher.  

The wedding cake was a cupcake tower made by bridesmaid Ivey Childers, who runs the IveyCake Bakery in Franklin, Tennesse.

Underwood describes her cupcakes as “as the most amazing cupcakes in the universe.”

IveyCake features cupcakes with names like:  Two-Faced, The Apology, Big Dreams, Crazy Ex, Gold Digger, Goody Two Shoes, and my favorite:  Lucky in Love.
