Cupcake Fun!

Its been a while since my last Cupcake fun! update, and boy have there been a few cupcake floating about. Unfortunately the more I try to ignore cupcakes, the more they jump out at me. I've been so good, I haven't eaten or baked a cupcake in close to 2 months. That might be a factor as to why I've been seeing them so frequently in everyday life. Sometimes cupcakes seem to appear in the most peculiar of places. So here is another installment of cupcake fun!!

A little while ago I noticed that weight watchers had a new spokes person. No it wasn't a reformed overweight celebrity, but none other then our frosted friend the cupcake. Not my first choice as a slimming ambassador, but who am I to deny it the spotlight.

At first I thought it was an honour, and then it dawned on me that they are portrayed as the evil enemy...yes I am a little slow at picking things up. So my excitement soon gave way to sadness, cupcakes are NOT evil, they are sweet and tasty. But I guess when you have a little extra weight to lose, you tend to blame anything that you can.....and cupcakes don't fight back. According to the ad, they come in peace, personally I like them in pieces....in my tummy!!

For months I had been logging into my hotmail account only to be greeted by a little cupcake asking me if I fancied something sweet. So one day I clicked on it....what? it was 3.30pm...I needed sugar. I expected to be taken to delicious and tempting cupcake recipes, instead I stumbled upon bland biscuits and uninspiring cakes, sigh....sadly there is no substitute for a cupcake.


Next, a random tea towel I found. I needed o buy some tea towels for work and went hunting, somehow the cupcakes just find me!! So I promptly purchased half a dozen cupcake tea towels.

If you wash yourself with cupcake soap, you end up smelling like a cupcake right?? Well that's my theory and I'm sticking to it. If you could smell like any cupcake what would it be? I think I'd chose blueberry, for no other reason than sometimes I feel like Violet Beauregarde.

I'm not the only one obsessed with cupcakes you know. I've noticed that my local council has gone a little cupcake nutty too. I noticed that the most recent theater guide has feature a few good looking cupcakes gracing the front cover. I flipped and flipped, searching every show listed and did not find one single show which was cupcake related, yes I was a little disappointed. How cool would it be if Hamlet killed his uncle by means of cupcake!! Theater never sounded so good!!

Our local council also has children's shows, so cupcakes make an appearance here too. Thankfully those are the names of the shows and not suggested cupcake flavours. Don't think I'd like to try a wombat stew cupcake!!

And last, and definitely my favourite was the most unexpected cupcake appearance of all time. On a lazy Sunday night Daz and I decided to watch a horror movie. Nothing like a whole load of laughing, horror movies are funny right?? Anyway, we watched Drag me to Hell and who did I see.....Miss Cupcake!! And I'm pretty sure the guy in the left hand corner is chomping into a very heavily frosted cupcake. Since we were watching a horror movie I kinda scared Daz, as soon as I saw the cupcakes I let out an almighty scream, of course Daz wasn't expecting it.

Cupcakes are so integrated into our society they seem to go unnoticed. I'll try my hardest to seek them out and make them visible for everyone to see. You can see other installments of cupcake fun here and here.

LOL Maria you crazy cat, great post!

Cupcake themed Hamlet would be AWESOME. Or how about the witches in Macbeth stirring up a batch of cupcakes in their cauldron?

That's hilarious - I notice cupcakes everywhere too, unfortunately all it does for me is register into my sub-conscious as "You need a cupcake. You neeed it, you waaant it..." Funnily enough, I used to have cupcake superbly frequently and now I haven't had any in months either!

Thanks for making me feel like a cupcake RIGHT now. The spaghetti bolognese for dinner just doesn't entice me anymore.
