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]

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Peeps have begun their annual invasion of the grocery store candy aisle. I found a bunch of peeps recipes that involved melting them down into bright blue liquid to stir into popcorn, or heating them up and squashing them between two graham crackers, their drooping beaks peeking out from under a layer of molten chocolate. These peeps massacres made me kind of depressed, so I decided to go with a recipe that kept each Peep relatively intact: s’mores brownies with Peeps. No Peeps are harmed in the making of these brownies. At least until you eat them. Enjoy! [Shugary Sweets]
