The cupcake has been around for centuries, however, it wasn't until the mid 1900's that the cupcake took on the form of sugary goodness as we know it today.
Cupcakes make great collectibles because of their delightful aesthetics. If I ever were to collect anything it would be cupcakes.
I've scoured the net in search of my favorite cupcake paraphernalia and came across three artisans and shops that really caught my eye. I wanted three because 'all good things come in threes'... and everyone knows you can't eat just one cupcake, but you have to have three, at least three!
Fortunately each one responded and agreed to be part of my cupcake extravaganza.
Donna Wilson at The Fakery Bakery Shop combined her love of baking with crafting to create these scrumptious looking cupcakes. These Decorative faux cupcakes are zero calories and very real looking. Donna offers a cupcake for just about any occasion.
For me it was love at first sight. If these cupcakes weren't fake I would think they look too good to eat. Some folks actually buy these as gag gifts, but to me they are keepsakes. I would love to have a collection of these on a shelf in the kitchen. These cupcakes certainly make for fun, creative gifts and like I mentioned Donna has a cupcake to suit any occasion or personal preference.
Stay tuned for more cupcakes at The Fakery Bakery because Donna will be expanding her line to include Giant Cupcakes, mini cupcakes, Cupcake Photo frames, cupcake magnets and Cupcake Flowers. Can't wait!
Norma refers to her store as the body bakery and I feel this is the perfect description. I spent quite a bit of time looking through all these goodies, there's even a special section for ice cream and chocolate. You will be amazed at the vast selection. Something for everyone, another perfect gift idea.
Pink Sugar Bakery is another site that really caught my attention. Megan took inspiration from her sweet tooth to create custom treats, cupcake accessories and keepsakes. You can also access her Etsy shop from the home page. That's where I found the Pink Cupcake Cross Stitch Kit pictured on the far left.
Both shops features the Build Your Own Cupcake Pendant. You decide the color of the cake, frosting, w/without sprinkles and you even have an option to choose a scent from four delicious varieties that include chocolate and vanilla.
Megan has decided to remind us all of the fact that you would have to run 3.5 miles to burn off one cupcake. I mentioned earlier that it's not possible to just have one cupcake, I need at least three. WOW that's a lot of running.
