Cupcake Tablecloth

It goes without saying that all picnics should include cupcakes.  This tablecloth is plastic (but PVC-free) and covered with colorful cupcakes!

Life is Just a Cup of Cake

Cupcakes are the glue that holds the world together...at least they would be in a perfect world.  These photos come from Life is Just a Cup of Cake - a cupcake bakery in Seoul, South Korea. 

I want that plate (and the cupcake too)!

Cupcake Spa Socks

A few weeks ago my niece and I went to the Indian Springs Spa in Calistoga, CA.  Have been there many times...will go there again many times.  Love the warm, healing waters and the quiet.  The pool is huge and fabulous - put one foam noodle behind your neck and one under your knees and just float!  There are several outdoor fireplaces on the property - bring a picnic lunch.

If you choose to leave the healing waters and partake of the spa services, you will not be disappointed.  Indian Springs also offers lodging and croquet, shuffleboard and bocce (bocci) ball on the grounds.

All you will need to bring are these spa socks!

Cupcake Bachelorette Veil

Wedding season is upon us.  Not that you can't have a wedding any time of year, but in the South there is definitely a "wedding season."  Weddings come with many extracurricular activities and the bachelorette party is usually given by the maid of honor and the bridesmaids.  It is customary for the bride to be identified in some way....tiaras, hats, strobe light engagement rings, blinged-out "Bride" tees.

I think this cupcake veil by bridalparty would be an excellent choice!

Lasagna Cupcakes

What can you do when you get a craving for lasagna but just want a bite or two?   Make lasagna cupcakes of course!  Bake lasagna in a cupcake pan and freeze it...then go to iTunes and download Dean Martin singing something Italian and pour a glass of something from Napa.  Click on the blog link below to get the recipe (made with wonton wrappers).   Enjoy!

Anne Taintor cupcake picks

I love Anne Taintor.  She takes old magazine photos and changes the caption to say what we are thinking but would not say out loud.  Sassy? Yes.  Sarcastic? Absolutely. What's not to love?   These picks by freakgirl are just what the cupcake diva ordered.

The Band Perry Cupcakes

As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Gigi's Cupcakes (they really understand the concept that the icing is more important than the cake). And a huge fan of  The Band Perry.  Their song You Lie made me smile when I was on a very dark journey and living those lyrics.

It was sooo fun to see that Gigi's is naming a cupcake after the band and on Fridays and Saturdays in April, you can buy the Very Perry Chocolate Cherry Cupcake at all locations.

I went to Walgreen's today to get some hairspray and a nail file...and of course I had to stroll down the post-Easter sale aisle. I love Walgreen's.  It is a miniature shopping smorgasbord...suddenly you can't live without pink glitter shoelaces and a CandyLand game. The post-Easter holy grail is a box of PEEPs....bunny or chick. 

Any color will do, although I prefer purple. The PEEP is a sugar-coated marshmallow delight that makes decorating Easter cupcakes effortless and delicious. And finding them on sale is just the icing on the cupcake!

Check out the article 8 Ways to Reincarnate a PEEP.  My favorite is PEEPshi (PEEP sushi).

April Fool


Check out the April Fool cupcake Cupcake Project blog today....a piece of toast shaped like a cupcake with cream cheese and chocolate almond butter for the icing.  Plus some colored seeds for garnish. Could have fooled me....and did.
