Each Sunday I like to flip through the Parade Magazine that comes inside the Sunday newspaper with the coupons and flyers. There is usually a good recipe or two inside. This week, in preparation for Easter there is a vanilla cupcake recipe and three Easter cupcake decorating ideas. I think I have seen versions of these over the years but sometimes it’s good to see an old idea again. Personally I still love the “hot chick” because it looks too easy to mess up!
I haven’t really kept up with college basketball, but I believe the Indiana Hoosiers are in first place? Either way, they are something to celebrate, and Indianapolis’s own cupcakery, The Flying Cupcake, is doing it in style with these clever Hoosier cupcakes. Very cute and likely quite delicious. It’s enough to make me watch college basketball!
Easter is just 10 days away, which means if you haven’t started getting your Easter baskets ready it is time you start. Or you could just buy this Sweets in Bloom Easter Cupcake from Walmart for $26.99. The ceramic keepsake cupcake container is filled with Peeps, Jelly Beans, SweetTarts, Dum Dums and more making it a fun gift for children or adults.
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!
