“Who throws a cupcake? …honestly!” - young Dr. Evil, 'Austin Powers'

Besides writing and reading, the only thing I can do for HOURS
is look at cupcakes and/or bake them.
These are just a few of the incredible cupcakes I've found on-line.
Whimsical Toadstool Cupcake
"Hostess" Imitation Cupcakes-They even have the filling.
Jack and Jill Cupcake with pastiage figures.
Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Christmas Cupcakes(ALWAYS a good gift!)
Ornament Cupcakes-Most of the time, the most beautiful cupcakes(and cakes) are covered in fondant-A sugary dough. I've learned through experience that fondant is beautiful, but does NOT taste good! I recommend a great buttercream.
Cakespy's Cotton Candy Cupcakes-Just a small tuft of the candy on top of the flavored buttercream. Lots of people BUY toppers- Just print, gue on a toothpick and BAM! Professional looking topper!
Cakespy is an artist who live creates not only recipes of cakes/cupcakes, but also paints them! You can buy an original piece of work from her WEBSITE.
...Isn't this Cupcake Cannibalism?!

Pumpkin Cupcakes (I LOVE the FALL!!!)- These are molded chocolates on top with sticks in them. You can but chocolate to melt and color as well as small molds like this as Michaels or Hobby Lobby!
Bakearella invented these Cupcake bites/pops- they are cake that's been mixed with icing and cut into the small shape-then dipped in chocolate-It's easier than you'd think!
This Hello, Kitty cupcake is vanilla with a strawberry flavored pink icing melted, poured over and allowed to harden.
Hi Top Cupcakes are something I've wanted to try for a while. I't chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow cream icing that's dipped in melted chocolate.
Inside
Many people don't comsider these mini cakes cupcakes, but I do. Just bake some cupcakes, cup off the top and disgard- cut in half and ice the middle-then pour chocolate ganauche over the top and you have ur own Sacher Torte!
This "Treat" Cupcakes is decorated with fondant figures- If you make these-again- the fondant does NOT taste good! Sure looks cute though!
Christmas Tree Cupcake-You can buy a pan shaped like a tree at any craft store and them just just a star burst tip to add the leaves, and some non-parels for ornaments!
I've had a few people ask me how to make the icing look good on cupcakes. I get tips(they're all under $2.00 at craft stores), put the tip in the corner of a strong zip loc and use that like an icing piping bag. Here are the looks you can get with different tips!These are some of the cupcakes I've made:
My mom's birthday-
Easter Cupcakes(THIS was the day I found out fondant is GROSS!) Pretty though!
For Jason and a music themed school cupcake bar-
