Bun in the oven

Dear Sweets,

Due to a soon to be due bun in the oven , we will no longer be taking anymore holiday orders this season. Orders are set to resume near Valentines Day and we will be sure to give you the heads up on our heart day specials! Until then we will be sharing local suggested treats that we enjoy along with kitschy local shopping for the Holiday Season.

5th Annual Day of the Cupcake

In anticipation of this years Day of the Cupcake we got to work with one of Atlanta’s great photographers, Mr. Ken Lackner.

He was generous enough to donate his expertise and eye in support of this years Charity by providing some great shots for visual collateral.

We have been gradually leaking out pictures from this shoot, but the full glory needs to be shared!

We asked Ken which of the images were his favorites from the cupcake eating crazy day and here is what he sent over!

Whimsical Wednesday * wrappers *

Cupcake Wrappers…  They come in an amazing array these days. Black , gold, filigree, glitter, artful cut outs, the types are endless.  You can honestly get a wrapper to fit any theme on any day of the year.  Here is our issue though.  Some times you  just don’t need ALL the wrappers that come in the package.  It’s kind of like Hot dogs and hot dog buns….

 

 

Here is the deal though, with extra hot dog buns you can make french bread for your sweetie the next morning. With Extra cupcake wrappers…. or in some cases crushed cupcake wrappers… We have found some really fun stuff to make these bad boys useful, or at least pretty.  Check it out!

 

Cupcake Wrapper light!  These are actually from Ikea's fun line of cupcake liners.  Brighten up any room!

OR you could get fancy with your cupcake wrapper lights and make;

Cupcake Wrapper FLOWER lights!  Perfect for a spring tea party!

All you need is:

mini cupcake wrappers

Regular flower shaped cupcake wrappers ( or cut the edges of your own)

a string of lights

and a pair of scissors or exact o blade

Easy stuff to brighten up and get ready for those May flowers!

Another cool wrapper idea is;

Cupcake Wrapper Wreath! Made of foam core, paper plates, and you guessed it CUPCAKE WRAPPERS!

If your still intrigued by the sweet ceiling art…

If done with lanterns these could make some really excellent lighting for the studio or heck even your bedroom ❤

Maybe your really wanting to brighten up a friends day though… and just don’t have the full funds for a beautiful bouquet, NO worries!

If  I’m going being honest here though, these cupcake wrappers are so fancy and fun, I fully plan on incorporating them into my own bridal bouquet. It  does make the most sense.  So I look forward to sharing the fun and/or frustration that that provides and the final product once I’m done.  It’s going to have to wait a little bit though because I have asked friends and family to donate jewels and pearl like shiny things so that they are all a part of the ensemble and walking right down the aisle with me.

Hrm…  that’s right… I guess I should put that on here, this cupcake lady is getting MARRIED! ❤

With that big news out in the air and all these fun wrapper ideas that concludes our Whimsical Wednesday, but I wanted to leave you with this sweet fancy find I stumbled across today on Etsy

Whimsical Wednesday *Glitter*

So a while back we talked about how much we love love love glitter, and even gave a short tutorial on how to make your own edible glitter.  A few of our friends didn’t really want to put up with making the glitter and to be honest we don’t always have the time for that so we wanted to share with you some of our favorite edible glitter for your tasty treats along with some of our favorite fancy sprinkles.  We like to bling  up a cupcake like any lady does her self!  That being said along with edible glitter and sprinkles we wanted to show you some of our favorite finger bling inspirations we found to brighten up any April Shower day, and are fairly simple to do at your own home.

First and foremost to the Glitter!!!

Baby Pink Disco Dust by fancy flours

Fancy Flours has some great great products that we use fairly often.  Not to mention it’s state side which gets you your glitters a lot sooner.  Just go to there site and click on your main color inspiration and that will take you to the much finer specific colors you like! Here is a gambit of their base colors, and I can’t think of any project that I would need anything that wasn’t in their inventory.

Gorgeous right!?!

There a few companies in the UK that we REALLY dig for edible glitter, just let us know if you would like to know who they are for your fancy glittering needs.

So before we skip to sprinkles lets talk about YOUR finger bling.  We will save our favorite jewelry finds for another day.  Today we are going to keep with some things that are easy to do to brighten up any of your days. (pssttt…   don’t think those pretty nails don’t make other folks smile too! )

Which of these looks is your favorite?  Are you a fan of the matte to glitter contrast or do you like all shine and shimmer?

Alright onto some serious sprinkles…  most of these you can find at your local baking and/or craft stores we just wanted to share our favorite.  Before we do that though I think it’s only necessary the ultimate childhood inspiration is shared, so that you can understand maybe where some of our colorfulness comes from.  Without further ado….. THE ONE…..  THE ONLY…..

What do These Sugar Dolls do?

7

These Days there are a few things the dolls do;

first and foremost——————————————————————————CUPCAKES!

 and plan a charity event to raise FUNDS for local charity.  FUN being the big part of that word!  The money from our  cupcakes go towards most, if not all, to our joint annual local charity event with Sacred Heart Tattoo, “Day of the Cupcake” .  Day of the Cupcake is our way of saying We love you Atlanta, and we want to show it.  So we know no better way then to say eat cupcakes, have a blast, and let’s get our hands dirty!  Let’s help our neighbors because in the end we are all in this together.  At this point in the game the dolls do not make profit off of their specialty order cupcakes, only cover expenses.  The rest goes towards Day of the Cupcake.  The work, the fun, the SUGAR supply are all something that we do on our own.  The event is planned, curated, and has more amazing volunteers than we will ever be able to super star the way they deserve.  Be it big or little Atlanta has many of it’s very own super heroes and we have been privileged to get to work hand in hand with many of them.    We are really looking forward to this years event, and can’t wait to reveal the charity, theme, and fun to be had over the next few months.  Can’t wait to see you in October, until then

  EAT CUPCAKES!
