So Simple - So True

Every now and then, I like to browse the pages of weheartit.com to find some delcious cupcake inspiration. Please enjoy today’s really sweet photo inspirations!

Sweet Sugary Stars

I just think these blue and yellow star cupcakes are so adorable. They would be perfect for a little boy baby shower! I don’t know why, but I love the combination of light yellow and pastel blue!

Simple and Elegant

Piping frosting in the shape of a rose is a classic! These cupcakes look so delightfully elegant with the pastel decorations on each of them.

Cupcake Garden!

I am officially obsessed with this idea! Baking chocolate cupcakes in little pots and using frosting or fondant to make little sprigs of grass and leaves. It is just too adorable!! I’m making these ASAP!

Breakfast Cupcakes

These cupcakes give me a legitimate excuse to eat cupcakes for breakfast! Come on, you know you still love Fruit Loops, putting them on a cupcake is nothing short of genius!

Cookie Dough Deluxe

This reminds me that I still need to post the recipe for cookie dough frosting….I’m warning you, it’s highly addictive. I’m talking so addictive you might not get to frost your cupcakes because you ate it all. Wait..I didn’t do that 🙂

Well that’s all for today my sweets. Hope you are all having a fabulous Tuesday. Stay Sweet!

From Simple to Sweet!

1 Oct

Hello readers,

Classic Vanilla

Today I want to share with  you a little secret. The secret to fabulous cupcakes  is decorating! Making a good cupcake isn’t that difficult, but its the decorating that gives each of your cupcakes that extra something special.

From Simple to "Sweet"!

These simple vanilla cupcakes are topped with my signature cream-cheese frosting and topped with edible sugar decorations that say “sweet”. I found these on sale at Joann’s Fabrics – they were only $2 for a pack of 12!!

Another great place to find decroation inspiration is at your local Marshalls or TJMaxx – their home goods sections always have the most adorable sprinkles at crazy affordable prices.

Yummy Chocolate Variety!

I recently made a batch of chocolate fudge cupcakes. My dilema was how to create a “variety box” with only one flavor cake. I decided to use 3 different icings, and 3 different types of decorations. One simple cupcake, turned into 3 great variations! I used cream cheese frosting and left it white, vanilla frosting and dyed it a beautiful blue, and topped the rest with my irresitable chocolate mousse. YUM! The best part about this, is you are bound to please everyone with a variety of cupcakes, and they didn’t even take long! It’s amazing what a couple of sprinkles will do for your cupcake!

Overall, be creative with your cupcakes. My golden rule is to use sprinkles sparingly (too many sprinkles can look a little tacky) and always decorate for the event. Don’t be afraid to try new things! If worst comes to worst, you don’t like it and you try again. It’s just icing 🙂 Nothing is permanent. Have fun and send me some pictures of your cupcake decorating skills!!

 

Til next time, stay sweet. xoxo
