Cupcakes Are The Rage

Popular foods come and go, but the cupcake has taken its place in the adult market! Cupcakes are no longer the cake with plain icing, but are statements of style and interest. They have become themed and colorful bringing an added measure of fun to the dessert table. Below you will find creative ideas for your next purchase! Even better, create your own original cupcake!

Cupcake stores are springing up in local neighborhoods with display cases full of flavor and choices that make buying a cupcake a regular event. Which one would I like today? Pick your fruit, pick your color, and even choose your size of cupcake. There are mini cupcakes for the dieters and larger choices for the hungrier consumer. You can find chocolate, lemon, strawberry and vanilla in most shops.

Pick a Favorite Cupcake

Choices, Choices, Choices

I attended a bridal shower for my future daughter in love this past weekend. The hostess prepared a beautiful display of cupcakes for dessert! No only were they well made and displayed with umbrellas, but she made two sizes. Her icing was beautifully spread with the help of an icing tube and the colorful umbrellas added a festive look to cupcake display.

The color of the cupcakes added flair to the overall appearance of the table and the various dishes presented for the meal. Colorful dips and chips, fruits and crackers complemented the brightly displayed cupcakes which stood tall on the corner of the table in their stand. Umbrellas were scattered among the various dishes to complement the cupcake decorations.

    I love cupcakes too! I need to work on making mine look pretty. I really lack in the icing department, as you can probably tell from my pictures! Next time I make them I'll read your hubs on decorating cupcakes.

    I think people always loved cupcakes, but they were thought to be for kids. With the cupcake being so elegant now and prepared in so many fancy ways older folks can now enjoy a cupcake again. Of course, I never quit eating them and you don't have to make them fancy for me to dig into one. I love cupcakes and always will. Another great hub with some grteat information. The pictures made me hungry.
