Casabella Baking Cups

By on Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Happy New Year!

To kick 2012 off right, I just purchased myself my first set of silicone baking cups at a nearby health food store. (You can get Casabella silicone muffin cups on Amazon too.)

I am quite impressed! A set of 6 reusable cups will run you about $8.99, but the way we go through cupcake wrappers around here, they’ll likely pay for themselves soon. I’ve already broken them in, and they worked beautifully. My cupcakes took a little bit longer to cook, so be prepared to be flexible, but the cupcakes were cooked evenly, and the silicone cups peeled away from them beautifully.

In the end, these baking cups are a great idea, and I look forward to trying to wear them out. They are also super easy to clean, especially if you have a dishwasher! And they come in jumbo size too!

Gap Cupcake Items

Did anyone out there brave the mall this weekend and happen to buy any of these cute cupcake items from Gap Kids?  I have been avoiding shopping malls but there are still tons of great deals on the internet.  The cupcake clutch is marked down to $17.46 and the socks are $9.00 for a three pack.  I seriously wish the pink and green cupcake pajamas came in my size instead of little girls.  And of course every little baby wold look cute in the cupcake sleep set for $19.80.  Gap is offering free shipping on orders over $50.00 and 20% off your purchase through tonight so hurry and place those orders!

The Notting Hill Shopping Bag

By on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

I love souvenirs and they are even better when they are cupcake related!  In October my parents spent two weeks in London and were nice enough to bring me back a few surprises.  One of them is The Notting Hill Shopping Bag which is designed by local school children to support local causes.  My parents made the obvious choice of chosing the cupcake design for me which was designed by X factor judge and Notting Hill resident Natalie Imbruglia.  The bags are available online through paypal for 8 euro, just be sure to mention you want the cupcake design when checking out.

Cupcake Rain Gear

By on Sunday, October 30th, 2011

I know today everyone is talking about the Nor’easter in the North East but I have a feeling we still have a few fall days left before winter is here to stay.  Since the holiday catalogs have already started arriving I looked through Hearth Song’s catalog this weekend.  Hearth Song has some really cute cupcake items.  My personal favorite are the cupcake rain gear; boots, umbrellas, and raincoats! Prices for these fun items range from $19.98 for the umbrella to $48.98 for the cupcake raincoat which features faces of bunnies and dogs on top of cupcakes.

Cupcake Convertible Glove

By on Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Is it too early to be thinking about gloves?  I know that in some areas of the country it has already snowed which means the possibility of colder weather is right around the corner.  Be prepared for chilly nights with these cupcake convertible gloves.  They come in three color combinations for  $19.00 from Urban Outfitters.
