I can vaguely remember a time in my life when a cake stuffed with candy might seem a little strange and excessive, but that was Before Pinterest (B.P.) completely desensitized me to the phenomenon of desserts stuffed with more dessert. Now, the idea of a piñata cake actually seems kind of tame, at least compared to the cakes-stuffed-with-pies-stuffed-with-truffles-stuffed-with-ice-cream that I routinely repin with comments like, “So nice for a party!” This piñata cake, though, it did give me pause. Not because of the high levels of sugar, but because of the candy wrappers inside. Call me picky, but I generally prefer there not to be plastic in my food. I don’t know, what do you guys think? Is the piñata cake an awesome idea or an example of excessive desserts gone awry? [A Subtle Revelry via Neatorama]

As you can probably tell, it has been quite a stressful week here at Frisky HQ. Thanks to a hard drive fire (seriously, a fire!), our admin capabilities has been wavering between being totally broken and pretending to be fixed long enough to let us work for a few hours and then delete everything we did. I knew this week’s project needed to be of the alcoholic variety, but when I found a recipe for vodka cupcakes (let me just say that again: VODKA! CUPCAKES!), I thought, “Damn, even better!” Let’s all whip up a batch of boozy baked goods and forget our troubles. At least until Monday. [The Baking Robot]

Oh, candy corn: every September, I get so excited about it, and then I eat a few handfuls and spend the afternoon with a disgusting waxy sugar headache, cursing the day it was created. I’ve been trying to steer clear of candy corn this year, but cookies are a whole different story, and I love the idea of translating the charming, iconic candy corn design into a festive sugar cookie. So cute. [Sweet Sugar Belle]
