Harry Potter: The Cupcakes

Just three weeks until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” arrives in theaters. To tide you over, here are some Harry Potter cupcakes. Ron Weasley and Voldemort look especially delicious, no? Wouldn’t it be funny if one of these were a horcrux? Keep reading »

Blake Lively Sabotages Ryan Reynolds With Cupcakes

“[Baking cupcakes] was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better.”

Blake Lively jokes at a “Green Lantern” press conference about why she baked so many cupcakes while making the movie. Or at least, she’s sorta joking here. Something tells me that might actually have been the motivation. [People]

But Ryan Reynolds didn’t mind. Here his response after the jump Keep reading »

Cupcake Vodka? Yes, Please!

Oh, yes, ladies, cupcake vodka is an actual thing! Cupcake Vineyards sells 14 wines but also vodkas with “creamy cupcake undertones.” OK, we’re listening. Cupcake vodka comes in four delicious flavors, including original, vanilla frosting, chocolate devil’s food, and lemon chiffon. Obviously the Cupcake Vodka PR people need to send The Frisky sample bottles so we can — hiccup! — deliver a full review to our readers. [Cupcake Vodka via The Hairpin] Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Men Are From Bacon, Women Are From Cupcakes

Men don’t have a passion for sweet treats the way women do. If given a choice between a sugary confection and something savory, men will choose the latter. This is not some kind of random, sweeping gender generalization I just made up. I have scientific proof. Like many big cities, New York has seen the arrival over the past few years of novelty food trucks. These trucks sell everything from waffles and tacos to schnitzel and BBQ. Yesterday I walked by two such trucks. One sold cupcakes, the other Asian dumplings. Women stood eagerly in line for cupcakes, but I made a beeline for the dumplings. They were delicious, meat-stuffed globules of delight. Dumplings are my anti-cupcake. Keep reading »

Would You Like Some Cake That Looks Like Meat?

I have to say, there is something somewhat disconcerting about cake that looks like meat. Is it cake … or is it meat? Your eyes and stomach are in a war. Clearly, the only way to resolve this conflict is to take another bite. Needless to say, Boing Boing points us to this cakes-pretending-to-be-meat slide show. As a fan of both cupcakes and TV dinners, I love this cupcake TV dinner melange. There’s also a T-bone steak cake, a seafood broil cake, that is, frankly, somewhat nauseating, and a Big Mac cake in a box. I haven’t learned how to cook a chicken yet, so these are all pretty much beyond me, but I would eat them, no problem. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

Cute As A Cupcake

Yesterday we saw a sweet pair of ice cream cone heels that we’d actually wear. This cupcake dress, however, might be too cute for its own good. Maybe for Halloween? [devaniweaver/Etsy] Keep reading »

The Johnny Cupcakes Cannon: Get A Face Full Of Wasted Treats


I heard my dad’s voice while watching this video from the Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour. You see, when I wouldn’t eat as a child, my dad would say there were starving children in Africa who would be happy for pumpernickel bread and okra. I’d roll my eyes and think: “Whether I eat or don’t, the African kids still wouldn’t get my food.” I’ve matured since then and try not to waste food or get entertainment from people wasting food. (Good thing “Double Dare” isn’t my favorite show anymore.) But even I laughed hysterically at the folks in this video who were shot in the face with cupcakes fired from a 120 psi cannon. After all, Johnny Cupcakes is a clothing company known for its cupcake and crossbones logo. How can you not laugh? [Gizmodo via Impact Lab] Keep reading »

These Are Not The Cupcakes I Want For My Birthday

I’m not even sure what to say here, except that cupcake makers sure are getting creative these days. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Finally, Cupcakes For Men

We thought everyone liked cupcakes, but apparently some guys find the usual variety a little too cute and unmanly for their tastes. To compensate for the large amount of “girly” cupcake shops and to ensure that men can eat cupcakes without feeling any less masculine, David Arrick started Butch Bakery. The New York City-based company, which recently opened for business, offers baked goods “where butch meets buttercream” in the form of cupcakes (often covered in cam or wood grain) with names like “Jackhammer,” “Beer Run,” “Big Papi,” and “B-52″ (as in the fighter plane, not the group that sings “Love Shack”). How could this market have gone untapped for so long? We already have male-targeted hair dye, skincare products, and even cooking sites, so clearly our cupcakes should be segregated, too. What do you think of these macho cupcakes? [Butch Bakery via Luxist]

UPDATE: So, apparently we wrote about this before, or something. Sorry about that, readers. We do 60+ posts a day here and sometimes we forget what we’ve covered in the past. But hey, is there such thing as too much gender-specific cupcake coverage? I don’t think so. — Editor Amelia Keep reading »

Dude-Washing: A Marketing Strategy Aimed At Guys With Small Wieners

Tony Soprano (and mobster types everywhere) made it OK for dudes to get manicures. Diddy has become the poster boy for manscaping. And now, as if we need more proof that it’s a man’s world, a handful of “creative” entrepreneurs are doing what they can to lend masculinity to some products that have traditionally been perceived as girly. It’s a phenomenon I’ve dubbed “dude-washing,” and all of a sudden, it’s everywhere. Keep reading »
