Kohl’s Valentine’s Day Cupcake Items

By on Monday, January 30th, 2012

Last week I ran into my local Kohl’s and was excited to see all of the cupcake items they were offering for valentines day.  You could easily decorate your whole kitchen in red, pink, hearts, and cupcakes!  These items would  also make great gifts for your special valentine.  For the kitchen there are cupcake placemats, aprons, kitchen towels and a vinyl tablecloth.  The table wouldn’t be complete without the 3 stacking bowls, cupcake shaped mug and spoon, and the serving platter.  You are also going to want the cupcake hand towel and my Kohl’s had a cute cupcake sign that isn’t on the website.  These cupcake items are on sale and affordable so be sure to stop by your local Kohls since Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away!

Like Stayhomecupcake, I too went to Target this week and spotted some great, cheap cupcake finds.  For only $1.00 you can get the extra large cupcake valentine’s day card! I also love the cupcake straws that include four different colors in a pack.  The straws can be purchased online for only $2.00!

$1 Cupcake Finds at Target

Target does it again! In their dollar area I just found these cute cupcake bins, cards, erasers and felt bags. They also had gift bags, window gel stickers and plastic plates.  I love dollar finds!  I also found cupcake birthday party items in their party area.  Not a dollar but still great prices! 

Cupcake Decor for Valentine’s Day

By on Monday, January 2nd, 2012
I am sad to say that Christmas is done and we have at least 10 months until the decor comes back to our local stores.  One bright spot right now is that most retail stores have already made the jump into Valentine’s Day.   And what goes great with Valentine’s Day decorations?  Cupcakes of course!  Check out what Kohl’s has in store for this year! 


Cookie Jar

 These are just a few of my favorite items.  Kohl’s also has towels, bowls, platters, tableclothes and many more sweet items!

Cupcake Rose Tutorial

By on Thursday, October 27th, 2011

I spent way too much time this morning on a colossal cupcake fail. I was trying to do the Wilton Rose, but all I got were wilted dandelions. Finally, I gave up and went to youtube for some help. Probably should have done that before I frosted two dozen cupcakes. Sigh. Anyway, I found this great video, though I had to watch it in slow motion. One of my problems was the consistency of my frosting. Too stiff won’t work. Neither will too soft. Of course, if you’re smart enough to use premade decorating frosting, then you don’t need to worry about that! So, here’s your professional tutorial!
