Sweet Gifts

3 Feb

Valentine's Day is 11 days away!

After looking around the blog world, I realized that I better hurry up and jump on the Valentine’s Day bandwagon! Everyone has great posts about Valentine treats, gifts, date ideas, and reservation tips! I haven’t really had much time to think about Valentine ’s Day, but no more excuses – today is a VDay post!

Need some sweet ideas for that special someone? I am here to help!

Sweets for your friends.

 
 

So Sweet!

 

Cupcake Love, Cupcake kits are perfect gifts to give to your girlfriend of any age. My customizable kits are fun to decorate and even more fun to eat. Each kit comes with 6 unfrosted cupcakes, a piping bag full of homemade frosting, and a container of custom sprinkles. Just cut the tip off the piping bag, frost your cupcake, top with sprinkles, and enjoy!

Better yet, get a bottle of wine, turn on a chick-flick, and have a girls night decorating cupcakes with your closest gal pals.

A Gift for Cupcake Lovers!

 
 

Delivered straight to you door!

 

Try the gift that keeps giving (for 3 or 6 months atleast)!

Looking for a sweet treat your man will love?

 
 

Cupcake Jars - Easy and Delish!

 

 

Cupcake Jars do the trick every time. 2 moist cupcakes topped with fluffy frosting, neatly baked into a mason jar. Ladies, we all know men don’t want the hassle of decorating their own cupcakes, so give them what they really want…a cupcake treat that they can eat mess free sitting in front of the tv! Each order comes with 3 jars and is decorated with fabric and ribbon. Does your guy have a favorite football team, hobby, or TV show? Let me know and I will decorate each cupcake jar according to his favorite things! Cupcake jars can be eaten right out of the jar, or can be warmed in the microwave and added to a bowl of ice-cream. What man could say no to that?

What about treats for the Single Ladies out there!

 
 

Single Girls Need Sweets Too!

 

I have some girlfriends who really dread the day of love! So for you Miss Independent, I have the Single Girls Survival Kit! A pack of cupcakes just for you, no need to share! This kit comes with 6 Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes filled with chocolate mousse, your choice of frosting, and a container of sprinkles! You will also receive 4 chocolate dipped Oreos…because no girl can have enough chocolate 🙂

Have Kids? Want an easy treat for them to take to school?

Cupcake's Individually Wrapped - Perfect for class parties!

My individually wrapped cupcakes are perfect for school parties, or Valentine treat exchanges. Not to mention you’ll look like a super mom who “baked all those cupcakes”. Each cupcake (order as many as you like!) is individually wrapped in a pink heart cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon. For each cupcake valentine you order you will receive a miniature bag of icing, and a small bag of sprinkles. Kids will love decorating their own cupcakes! It’s a fun way to trade Valentines. All orders can be customized with name tags if you would like.

Don’t forget to use code SCCS10 FOR 10% off your purchase. And if you spend more than $10 you get 4 free mini cupcakes added to your order.

Double Cup Cupcakes

2 Sep

Hello readers! Can you believe that September is already here? I am happy to say that I have been busier than ever with baking projects. From bridal showers, to birthday parties, my plate has been pretty full. I am excited though, to share with you today’s INGENIOUS cupcake topper idea. I know you are going to love it!! So without further adieu….I present “Double Cup Cupcakes”

I got this idea from one of my favorite blogs, “Confessions of a Cookbook Queen” (http://confessionsofacookbookqueen.blogspot.com/2010/05/cupcake-cupcake-toppers.html. They are cupcakes with cupcake toppers, so cute, and so easy!!

Cupcakes on Cupcakes..this is an idea I can get behind!!

You will need:

Frosting of your choice

  • Piping Bag
  • Sprinkles
  • Red Sugar Pearls
  • Reese Cups

Simply unwrap the Reese’s cup, but leave the paper wrapper on. Pipe frosting on top like you would a regular size cupcake. Add miniature sprinkles and tada!! You have a really cute cupcake topper.

**Hint: You could also use these for cake toppers, or miniature candies at a child’s birthday party. The options are endless.

For the cupcake portion, you could use almost any recipe. I would choose chocolate to compliment the Reese cup.

Chocolate Cupcakes
Makes 18-24 cupcakes

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I always use Hershey’s)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together the cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Add the eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Beat until smooth with an electric mixer, about 3 minutes.

Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each cup no more than 2/3 full.

 Bake 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting, I say cream-cheese or butter cream: Recipes for Frosting found here!

Now, top them with sprinkles and the miniature cupcakes candies! These have to be the cutest double cup, cupcakes ever!!

A Sweet Little Cupcake

Today’s  blog is dedicated to a sweet little girl named Madelyn. 

Madelyn

I went to high-school with Madelyn’s mom, Danielle. While I have never “officially” met Madelyn, the pictures that her mommy posts on FaceBook let me see what  a sweet little child she truly is. Madelyn is a special little girl not only because of her adorable chubby cheeks and her two-tooth smile, but because she has Down Syndrome, and fights every day to do things that we all tend to take for granted. Please take a second and visit Madelyn’s fundraising page. Danielle and “Maddy” are raising money to walk in the “Step up for Down Syndrome” walk on October 16th. To read more about Madelyn and the walk, or to donate to a great cause, please visit http://www.firstgiving.com/madelyncopello
