I'll admit it, I love "Toddlers & Tiaras." It's a terrible show that I simply cannot get enough of. These cupcakes remind me of the super crazy pink bedrooms almost every little girl on that show lives in.
There are a million Mario cupcakes out there and pretty much all of them are adorable. I particularly like these because of how simple they are. The shapes are basic and effective, the fondant is smooth and not too thick, and Mario's mustache is as full as ever.
You can't fool me, rice krispy treats! I see you under all that makeup, trying to masquerade as a cupcake. That's a low and dirty trick. You know I love you for what you really are with all of your buttery goodness. You don't have to pretend, be proud of who you are!
There's so much fondant everywhere these days adorning all our sweet goodies. It looks amazing, but the taste is nothing special. Bakingdom has made these incredible steampunk cupcakes with Tootsie Roll hats! So pliable and easy to work with and so delicious! The Saturday Genius Award goes to Bakingdom!

Oh man is there a lot going on here. Those cupcakes alone look light and moist and delightful and then you go and pile on some pretty, fluffy, buttery icing mmmmmmm. And THEN you make little heart cookies and you ice them BUT you use MORE icing to make them all fancy and swirly and amazing. Then you PUT IT ON THE CUPCAKE! I'm so exhausted. I can't eat. I need a nap.
Let's play sleuths: What's the connection here? Sure sure, you may say it's someone's 20th birthday and they love owls but that's too easy. There must be a deeper meaning. Is there a secret society of owls? Is there a code to which side they wear their flowers on? Is 20 a mystical number?
My cherry trees are blooming out front and brightening things up pretty nicely even though the blooms are weighed down with rain and drooping toward the sidewalk. It's nice to have something other than dark branches to look at while I walk around the city. These cupcakes probably taste the way the cherry blossoms make me feel.
