You’ve probably heard of “road rage,” the irrationally intense anger that some people experience while driving in traffic that causes them to do crazy and reckless things. Have you heard of “cupcake rage”? Most people are simple disappointed when their local bakery is out of their favorite treats.

Cupcake Keys

CupcakeKeys

I have a set of Cookeys, Oreo cookie-shaped plastic key covers. They’re cute, food-related and certainly make my keys easy to spot. I’ve noticed that more and more key covers are coming out, both food related and not. I’ve seen donuts and robots, but this set of Cupcake Key Covers jumped out at me as being just about as cute as my sandwich cookie set. ... Read More »

Cupcake Corer

Cupcake Corer

Filled cupcakes seem like a challenging thing to make at home at first glance. With a regular cupcake, it’s easy to see how to put some frosting on top of the cake, but figuring out how to get the filling inside is not quite as obvious. Fortunately, it is easier than it looks to fill cupcakes and there is absolutely no reason not to make ... Read More »

There is nothing better than a batch of homemade cupcakes, but a dozen or so from a favorite bakery can come in at a close second – and can actually take the first place spot for those who don’t bake. Cupcake shops are still more popular than ever (especially here in LA), but that doesn’t mean that you can find one as easily as you ... Read More »

The only thing better than a cupcake is a cupcake with a rich cream filling. So, when you start out with a cupcake that is well known for having a delicious frosting – such as red velvet, which is almost always paired iwth a cream cheese frosting – you know that it can only get better when you manage to incorporate more into the cupcake. ...

Maple Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream

Maple Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream

Although it will always be my favorite use for it, maple syrup can be used for so much more than just topping pancakes and waffles. I’ve used it to sweeten cookies and homemade granola before, where it accents the other ingredients with its rich, sweet flavor. But there is no reason to keep maple as a background flavor and here I’ve made it the star ... Read More »
