Are cupcakes anti-feminist? Hell no! Read More »

The formerly beloved cupcake chain Crumbs closed its doors yesterday, likely to never open again. The company’s 48 stores in 10 states are suddenly gone, and countless Crumbs employees lost their jobs overnight. The cupcakery, which has been around since 2003, had a loss of $18 million in the past year. Does this mean the cupcake bubble has finally burst? Keep reading »

Dream Or Nightmare: Mountain Dew Doritos Cupcakes

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Mountain Dew Doritos Cupcake, a hybrid of neon green soda, lemon cake mix, and nacho cheese chips. I think Claire put it best: “if ever a baked good captured the spirit of America, it is this one.” The perfect treat to bring to a 4th of July picnic! Check out the video recipe here if you’d like to whip up a batch for yourself, but please don’t hold us responsible for whatever happens to your digestive system afterwards.

We Obviously All Need These Edible Cupcake Wrappers

We Obviously All Need These Edible Cupcake Wrappers

I’m a weirdo who eats her cupcakes with a fork, but thanks to these new edible cupcake wrappers, I guess I don’t have to anymore! I can bite right into the side of the thing without having to worry about peeling the paper back without dropping half the cupcake onto the sidewalk (okay, wait, the visual of haphazardly chomping into a delicate baked good doesn’t sound too dignified either).

Bear Crashes Birthday Party By Falling Through Family’s Skylight, Proceeds To Eat All The Cupcakes

A Juneau, Alaska, couple was prepping for their child’s birthday party at their home when they received a visit from a surprise party crasher — a 180-pound black bear who fell through the skylight. The couple ran out of the room, but the bear wasn’t about to show himself out before he got a chance to nom on the party cupcakes. I can’t say I blame him. Who would walk away from free cupcakes?

11 Things We Need In Vending Machines More Than Cupcakes

cupcake ATM

What hath you wrought, cupcake craze? Manhattan has finally gotten its very own Sprinkles Cupcake ATM. Yes, an actual ATM that dispenses cupcakes. While I haven’t tried it yet, I did encounter a Benefit makeup vending machine at the Austin airport last weekend that totally rocked my world and prompted me to spend way more on blush than normally ever would.  From makeup to pizza to champagne, it seems like lately everything can be dispensed from a cutesy machine. But why can’t the things we actually need be sold that way? Keep reading »

Behold, The Grossest Cupcake Ever!

You may think you’ve seen the grossest desserts out there (we’ve covered quite a few), but consider first this maggot-removal cupcake showcased by EvilCakehead.com.

In some ways, this cupcake is so much worse than those STD cupcakes or those creepily realistic baby heads made of white chocolate. Read more on Huffington Post…

Celebrate The Onset Of Your Seasonal Affective Disorder With These Depressing Pastries

The Depressed Cake Shop

Winter is coming. Which means that seasonal affective disorder season is right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but the first thing I reach for when I’m depressed is a sugar fix. Miss Cakehead, the same company that brought you STD Cupcakes, wants to offer you a something sweet this SAD season. The Depressed Cake Shop, their latest pop-up venture featuring only grey baked goods thematically tied to mental illness, is serving dreary desserts (that hopefully still taste good) to residents all around the UK. They hope that the treats will raise awareness and money for those struggling with mental health issues. Funds from the stores will be donated to mental health charities or help fund therapy sessions for people in need.”[Baking] has long been thought to be therapeutic for depression sufferers”, said creative director of Miss Cakehead, Emma Thomas. I’ll eat to that. [Design Taxi]

These cupcakes, created by Stefani Pollack of Cupcake Project, actually contain no cake: they’re made entirely of frosting. Instead of chocolate cake, the base is made by piling chocolate frosting in a chocolate wrapper, and the whole thing is topped with more frosting. I’ve never been a big fan of frosting, so this photo is giving me a sugar headache, but I’d imagine for some people (ahem, Ami), this creation is a dream come true. Any other frosting fiends out there who are dying to try one of these? [Laughing Squid]

Tales Of A Thoroughly Disappointing Cupcake(-Shaped Vibrator)

cupcake vibrator

Ami was disappointed that a press release which seemed to offer her a free cupcake (!) to try was actually offering her a free cupcake-shaped vibrator to test.

I was disappointed in the choice of shape, which is not ergonomic and will look absolutely ridiculous pressed up against one’s ladybusiness. And for $48!

And Sophie was disappointed that none of us realized this Shiri Zinn Cupcake vibe is a gag gift.

All around, a thoroughly disappointing cupcake(-shaped vibrator). [Bloom Enjoy Yourself]

I did not enjoy the recent article in the Wall Street Journal saying that consumers have “gourmet-cupcake burnout” and that’s why cupcake stock and sales are down. “Demand is flat. And quite frankly, people can bake cupcakes,” said some stupid food industry big wig.

First of all, I have never baked a cupcake (or anything) in my life, nor do I plan to. I do, however, enjoy having stuff baked for me. I will pay to have stuff baked for me. That’s why I go to a cupcake shop. So someone who owns an egg beater can make me a personal cake. It’s the same reason I pay for someone to make my morning latte. Because I don’t own a top-of-the-line espresso machine. Keep reading »
