New Year, New Giveaway

By on Monday, January 3rd, 2011


Happy New Year cupcake fans! Our first giveaway of 2011 is a special one.  I’d like to introduce you to Stella Dot’s Ava Cupchain necklace.  Now I know it doesn’t have too much to do with cupcakes but isn’t it beautiful?  To me the little Czech stones resemble our little cuppies but maybe I just have cupcakes on the brain!  I love that the ribbon tie allows this necklace to be any length you wish.  I wear my cupchain often and get many admirers checking it out. 

Now you have the chance to win this necklace from Stella Dot seller, Lisa Daly.   First, visit Lisa’s Stella Dot site and peruse all the amazing  jewelry, girl’s items and totes they have to offer.  Then come back to ATC and click on the comment area below and tell us what was your favorite item. 

One winner will be chosen on Monday, January 10th.   

Check out a few of my other favorite Stella Dot pieces!

Jewelry Giveaway

By on Monday, March 8th, 2010

This week’s sweet giveaway comes to you from Etsy crafter Zinicolas.   She specializes in high-quality handcrafted clay and fine silver jewelry.   These creations are all wearable works of art and each is uniquely designed.   I own one of these little pieces of heaven:

I think I was most impressed with the size of this piece and it’s detail.  Many pendants I have seen are very small and lack realistic characteristics.  Her cake slice is larger than most and looks so much like a real (miniature) cake slice!   I enjoy the bigger size because I get more comments and compliments from cake admirers! 

This week you, our loyal cupcake readers, will get the chance to win one item from Zinicholas.  Here’s the best part:  the winner will get to choose what item they want to receive!  Just go to Zinicholas and look at her sweet polymer clay items.  Then come back to ATC and click on the comment area below.  Please tell us what item you would pick to win AND what item you think she should create next.  Contest ends this Sunday so enter now! 

Special thanks to Zinicholas for sponsoring this superb giveaway!

Etsy’s Cupcake Jewelry

By on Monday, September 14th, 2009

I started today by simply typing “cupcake jewelry” into Etsy’s search bar and it quickly came back with over 3,000 items! After a narrower search I found some nice crafts to share.

The majority of cupcake jewelry on Etsy is made from polymer clay. This medium is very versatile and can be molded into the most realistic looking cupcakes as seen with this Strawberry Frosted Cupcake Bracelet made by ScrumpiousDoodle.

I have also fallen in love with artisans who use glass in their cupcake jewelry. These earrings, made by Hare, are glass lampwork beads with sterling silver Swarovski crystals on top for cherries.


I also found quite a few sterling silver cupcake jewelry items. This bracelet was made by ClareElizabethDesign and she used light pink rose quartz beads with the little cupcake.

Cupcake Cuff

Cupcake CuffDon’t you just love the new design? It looks amazing! I am super excited to be blogging again, while we were away, I got to scout out some awesome new items! Check out this Cupcake Cuff! In Hope is an amazing seamstress and this cuff is only $10.00.

“I just felt like making some cuffs this week because my arm have felt naked. This one is made out of bright red vinyl with a stitched on vinyl cupcake. I also sewed industrial style pink Velcro to keep this bracelet closed. It is about 8 inches long and about 2 inches in the middle most wide part. The inside of this cuff is a light pink felt so you wont get a sweaty wrist. This cuff would fit most girls.”

Her banner even has cupcakes, how cool is that!
