Cupcake Fun!

Its time for another installment of Cupcake Fun! Where cupcakes are not just restricted to dessert, but appear in everyday life. They tempt us with their cake bottoms and sweet fluffy frosting's, and now their popping up at any given opportunity. My mission is to expose them for what they are, and make them visible for everyone to see. So without further ado, lets get straight into the cupcake sneakyness!

First we have another appearance of cupcakes in the movies. I was watching Cake, the movie...not a random banana cake, and to my surprise a mini cupcake popped into view. I dont even remember what the scene was about, but I can tell you with certainty it wasnt about cupcakes. I was a little disappointed with the movie....it had absolutely nothing to do with cake, yet another movie that lied to me - Porky's is not about roasting pig!

Next we have cupcake clothing, to be specific cupcake pajamas. Now I'm a little worried about this one. I often think about cupcakes, usually when thinking about cupcakes is inappropriate. For example, sitting in a lab meeting - talking about safety and someone asks how can we improve our safety rating - I think cupcakes. If you really think about it - cupcakes could work!! Anyways, I don't think it would be a good idea to wear cupcakes to bed, for one good reason. Daz may think the pj's are edible and take a chunk out of them in his sleep - he frequently sleep eats.

Next we have cupcake fridge magnets. Yep...their cute.

We've all heard of pasta flour, bread flour and now we have....cupcake flour!! If there's a cupcake printed on the front it means that's what you bake right??

Next we have cupcakes in the kitchen. The awesome Arwen from Hoglet K recently sent me a cupcake mitten. Isn't it cute!??! As soon as I got it in the mail I had to christen it, so I made a batch of cupcakes!! In my opinion there is no better way to welcome its addition to our family.

Still staying in the kitchen, the best way to protect your clothes from wayward cupcake batter is by wearing a cupcake apron. And if your batch doesn't turn out so well you can eat the apron. No promises it will taste any good!

Not only do I frequently come across cupcake stuff in my everyday goings on but now they are arriving in my mail. To celebrate a momentous birthday, recently a friend of mine sent out cupcake invitations. I promise this is not a set up and totally random, she doesn't even know I have a blog!!

Last, and probably my favourite of all, Cupcakes are even art now! On a recent trip to Aldi, Daz and I came across this arts and craft set where you paint your own cupcakes.....why not just bake a batch of cupcakes instead!!

My favourite of all was the warning on the back of the packet. I read it and then wondered what if that warning came with normal cupcakes! Then I read on and almost lost it when I read......"If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show container or this label". Imagine what a doctor would say, he takes one look at the packet and says....so your telling me your kid ate cupcakes and is now feeling ill???

I love these cupcake posts! I saw one on MSN's Healthy Eating (as in what-not-to-eat) and went pffft because just looking at it made me crave one. Good job! :)

Conor @ HoldtheBeef said...

YAY! More cupcake sneakiness!!!

HAHA, are you sure you weren't just sitting around watching a random banana cake? I've been known to stare at cake, sniff cake, then.... you'll never guess what I do to it afterwards.

Oh and Porky's! Too funny! Staying up late watching TV.. ooh, "Porky's" is on, that sounds good, I wonder what it's about? Oh...

You truly have a talent for sniffing out cupcakes paraphernalia. Brava.

Yay for cupcakes! I have the second photo of cupcake pj's you posted. I think they were ridiculously cheap at $12 a set or something. Feel kinda dorky wearing them but I wear them when no one's around haha. I'm so bad with cupcake related items as I want to buy them all!
