Easter Bunny Birthday Cupcake

Posted by Dee Stewart at 11:13 AM 2 comments Links to this post
I can't believe how I have not posted any of my cupcakes on the blog. Confession: I haven't developed any pictures. I'm archaic. No digital camera. So one day you may come here and it is full of cupcakes I've done since July. Don't slap me. I intend to update regularly and get these pics developed. Lately I've been on a adult cupcake kick. So my new recipes will follow that vein. Poor Selah. She' s on a cupcake diet.

Selah's birthday was last Saturday. We had an Enchanted/American Girl sleepover. I made Pink Peeps Easter Cupcakes. The bunnies and chicks were pink Peeps, marshmallow candies. The icing was edible grass from Walmart mixed with basic marshmallow icing from chocolit and a sprinkle of Kool-Aid green. Picks will be coming soon. Girls thought it was cute. It was way too sweet.

Here is a pic from Quirky Cupcake. My cupcake looked similar except my cupcakes were huge(paper muffin cups) and the icing was green with grass in it instead of sprinkles. Think enchanted, girly.

Wheeler's Scoops Boston

Wheelers is excited about opening its South End shop and so is Boston and so are we!!
For five years, Cambridge-based Wheeler (a self-described "ice cream designer" who, in true artiste fashion, rarely uses his last name) and partner Damion Lord (a former Carvel employee, he developed lactose intolerance after eating too much soft-serve) have been selling their soy-based treats by special order. This month, with their planned South End shop Wheeler's Frozen Desserts, they're bringing their product to the open market, offering as many as 20 to 30 rotating varieties. Most spring from Wheeler's imagination, but he's more than happy to create custom flavors like chocolate pretzel crunch and sweet potato on request. "If you told me, ‘When I was in sixth grade, my favorite flavor was marshmallow bubblegum,' I'll do that," he says.

Congratulations, Wheelers. When are you coming to Atlanta?

Anyone have any great recipes to go with the icecream or any recipes that includes their drinks? I'm looking for some grown folk cupcake ideas.
