Life is sweet! So is this tattoo, which was done by Til Death Tattoo of Portland, Maine. Don’t have a cupcake tattoo yet? What are you waiting for?
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!
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?
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!
Have you ever been on your way out the door and had the host of a party try to give you a cupcake to take home but you have nowhere to put the cupcake? I know it’s happened to me before where you can’t put the cupcake on a plate and it will get all over a napkin. I had never thought of cutting the top of a cup to make a cupcake holder. Just follow the steps on this image and you have a quick recycled gobelet cup cupcake holder!
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 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!
