Cupcake Friday!


If you’re reading this in the State of California, you should know these cupcakes are illegal. NSFW cupcakes? It’s the sprinkles – they’re food grade, but not okay in California.

Green velvet – which foodie friends, does NOT work if you’re using high-quality cocoa powder as they turn a kind of camo colour – cupcakes with cream cheese icing and sparkles! I took 12 of these lovelies to a conference. I managed to get them past airport security without all 12 being whisked away for “taste, ahem, safety testing” by the staff there (for the record, icing is considered solid, not a gel), survived 1.5 hours on the plane and 30 minutes on the Skytrain without them being devoured by random cupcake-appreciating strangers, and get the tasty treats to the conference table intact and un-tipped through the whole process, as you can see here (look who found her son’s camera?!).

While at the conference, I passed on these, knowing that I have access to cuppies 24/7, but I did try a nutella cupcake at a cupcake store. I am very proud to say that my cupcakes are better!

Unfortunately, my cupcake carrier went missing. I guess my laptop and cellphone are too crappy to be liberated, as I could plug both in at the recharging station without woe, but the carrier grew legs and ran away. I contacted lost and found at the hotel with no luck. I’m fortunate enough to be able to purchase another one, but I’m a little upset about it going missing, as it’s one tier of a 3-tiered carrier, and of course, there was only one lid which went missing too. Bah. Cupcake on!

  1. Have cupcakes, will travel? Well done getting them all that way…I would be afraid I would eat them all on the way, lol! And og so pretty with the silver dusting!

  2. I made green velvet mini cupcakes for St. Patricks Day! I agree the cocoa doesn’t help in trying to get a nice shade of green. I wasn’t very happy with the slightly green camo hue. But a little mint buttercream on top helps. Your cupcakes are pretty. Love ths sparkles !
