Goodbye, Scary stories and a module Cupcake Giveaway

document.write ('-');While a few of you, just like my mother, found this cupcake cute ... .. most of you seemed to find her frightening.  I could blame the designer of MS Cupcake (which remain nameless-but it's someone in my household). However, since it was designed on the basis of a sketch that I pulled, I can only blame itself.

Fortunately, I recently renewed a friendship with an incredibly talented illustrator, Emma Hand Snap stories.  Emma agreed to make my blog look pretty (bye bye, scary cupcake) in exchange for some commercial and family photo work of j. Pollack photography.  Win win!!

I love the illustrations that Emma did for my blog (the RSS button is my favorite-how about you?), and I'm also really excited about our plans to collaborate on some projects on the road (still no hints).  But, despite all the work she's done for my blog, the best thing she has done for our household can design my son's favorite board book.

Emma's line of books, stories, you can Snap a cute book with ten of your own snapshots.  What kid doesn't like a book about himself?
The funniest part of Snap stories is that you don't need any special tools to your custom book-no scrapbooking corners, glue, paste, or scissors.  Each page of the book includes double-stick tape, so you can just stick your picture right.  It is easy enough that you can book together with a child and set up a craft project out of it.

How to win a book stories module

To celebrate the completion of this phase of the Cupcake Project design upgrade (it will be an ongoing project), Emma is giving away different stories Snap books.  To enter, head over to her blog and leave a comment there (comments here on Cupcake Project are always welcome, but they will not get included in this contest).

Good luck!

Indian Corn Cupcakes for Indian summer

Hello Cupcakers!

We know that it is only the beginning of September, but when children head back to school we start thinking had fallen. It is still fairly warm, so you can call this an Indian Summer. And the best way to celebrate the Indian Summer than by making Indian Corn Cupcakes. We took the idea for corn on the cob cupcakes in Hello, Cupcake! and in our latest book, what's new, Cupcake? We exchanged yellow and White jelly beans to russets, oranges, creams and gold medals. Jelly Belly has a wide range of colors and all variants taste great together. We start by mixing maize design of all our jellybean colors together in a bowl. And then we use them in whatever order they come out of the dish. This makes the pattern more random. We decided to try a variation of maize cocoa shells, also. In the book we used the WNC phyllo dough. But here we tr?de ' why not use maize cocoa shells?» We got these right from the grocery freezer section (at the same time they are made to wrap tamales). We opened the package, spread cocoa shells on paper towels, and let them air dry. We cut them into long narrow shapes and curled them slightly to place around the cupcakes as a garnish. This makes a great dessert a hub for all of the collection. Complete the recipe is on page 160 in the news, Cupcake? And corn husk variation used here makes the project even easier than before!

How to make honey Nutella Rice Krispie treats

You'll notice that when you read the ingredients below that I don't actually use Nutella or Rice Krispies. Is this a case of false advertising? Not really. I thought it would be if I called Justin's nut butter recipe honey Erewhon crispy brown rice cereal treats people not very excited about it; not to mention the fact that I'm not even sure how to say the word "erewhon".

Yield: an 8 x 8 glass baking dish of treats (doubling the recipe if you prefer taller treats-treats will be thicker, but will still fit in the same baking dish.)

Combine in a medium sized microwave safe bowl, honey and Nutella and microwave for 30 seconds. Rudder.  Honey and Nutella have warm and thoroughly combined.  If not, continue for 10 seconds at a time when microwave and stir until they are. (If you don't have a microwave, heat in a medium saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes.)Mix Rice Krispies in the bowl and stir, all of the Krispies. Spread mixture into an 8 x 8 coating glass baking dish.Refrigerator for at least three hours.Cut into squares and eat!Coming Soon

Soon, I have more fun with Rice Krispie treats, and a related cupcake.

Karen and Alan tends Bar at food network CANDY event

Mini Cupcake Cocktails

We have been in love with our cupcake cocktails ever since we designed them to our news newsletter (if you do not know whether what is newsletter please go sign to the next question where you will also find directions in order to make these little potions).

When the remote control functionality of food network's wine and Food Festival and Jelly Belly came to us and asked if we would be interested in participating in this event at this year's Festival SWEETS tr?de we Cupcake Cocktails would be perfect. Then we found out we need to earn 1000 of the event, when we invented the Mini Cupcake Cocktail.

This small drink is now not a full cupcake like our Cupcake Cocktail full size. You need to actually use the cupcake. It can also be done with frozen pound cake (Sara Lee). But we are of rightholders against cupcake. In order to make the Mini Cocktail, we filled the bottom of a mini Martini glass with about 10 of any single favor by Jelly Belly Cocktail classics jelly beans. So we added a 3/8 inch slices of cupcake cut into 1 1/2 inch circle on top of the beans. Next we topped cupcake slices with frosting tinted in vibrant cocktail colors to match beans and garnished with additional beans of the same taste and a cocktail fork. What a fun small dessert. It is precisely the right part, when you know you want tasting other desserts, easy to carry around an event or a party, and just as easy to eat while you mixed with cocktail fork is part of the design.

This event was amazing. It was who's who in food and restaurants in New York City. Jean George, Tom Colicchio, Francois Payard, Daniel Boulud, Stanford Tavern and Clinton Street baking to mention just a few of the more than 50 participants. Food Network's Guy Fieri Sandra Lee was there, as well as and cake Nobel prizes as Ben Israel. Once we got to meet Ace cakes Duff Goldman!

We did this fantastic Mini Cupcake Cocktail Tower for the table.
There is a little light in the tower for the effect dramatic lighting.

Of course, the further we not everywhere without maize COB Cupcakes!

(A) the closing of our Mini Cupcake Cocktails. It looks like just a beautiful swirl of frosting with a few jelly beans from the top,
But underneath is the fun part.It is where we hide our slices of cupcake and even more Jelly Belly beans.
We used the Peach Bellini and pomegranate Cosmo and frosting in matching shades of yellow, and pink.
