Just some cute cupcake stuff

Cupcake Recipe Cards

I used these cards today and it reminded me of a bunch of cute cupcake stuff that’s crossed my path recently. These are letterpress cards from Dingbat Press. If you’ve been following the site for a while, you’ll remember these she made for me a while back. I love letterpress. Love it. It’s so substantial and makes writing much more fun. Check out her site and you’ll find a ton of other gorgeous designs.

Cupcake Bag

See this bag. It’s a camera bag that was offered to me by Tracy Joy Designs. She had one cupcake design left and gave it to me for the price of shipping. Now, I usually don’t like pattern stuff. I’m a solids kind of girl, but I thought what the heck… that’s a pretty good deal… and maybe I’ll do a giveaway with it or something.

It arrived the day before I went to Oklahoma to visit the Pioneer Woman and as it would happen, I needed a carry on bag for the flight. How convenient! It was perfect. Lots of pockets for lenses that I used for stuff and a long strap to hang over my shoulder so I could lug two other bags full of cake pop supplies.… Kinda smooshable so I could stuff it under the seat in front of me. Needless to say, I’m not using it for my camera and I’m not giving it away. It’s my new travel companion. (sorry)

Cupcake Bag

And, here’s the best part – that I didn’t even notice until I was on the way home. The flap is removable. You can switch it up with different designs. Cute, huh! I don’t think this style is available in her store, but I bet you could do a special order. And if not, she has other cute bags.

www.tracyjoy.com

Oh no. I was wrong. I just went to their site to get the link for you and it turns out they are closing shop. Serves me right for waiting so long to post this. But, the good news is they are having a BIG sale on all their remaining inventory. Maybe you can score a deal.

Now, control yourself. These are really adorable.

Cupcake Measuring Spoons

Heavy metal cupcake measuring spoons. Look at the inside and the handles. Eeeeeeeek! Keeeeeuuute!

Cupcake Measuring Spoons

Look at their bottoms. And look at the handles, they have tiny hearts on them.

My new friend, Pioneer Woman Cake Pop Demonstration Winner, and blogger… Starwoodgal, gave them to me. She found them at a charming little store in Arkansas called Signed Sealed Delivered. I looked on their site and couldn’t find them, so here’s another place to get them.

Cakespy Notecards

Recognize these little guys? They’re from Cakespy. You know how much I love Cakespy and her L’il Cuppie character. I have several of her paintings and now I can spread the sweetness with these little cute note cards. She also has buttons, magnets and a bunch of fun paintings.

Cakespy Shop

Blue Cupcake Necklace

How could you be blue with this hanging around your neck. I bought this vintage necklace with plastic cupcake pendant recently from Very Happy Everything. They just got started on etsy, but have tons of cute necklaces. I’ll warn you, though. You need to have a little whimsy in your bones for some of the designs… like the Hammerhead sharks with bow ties. Oh, to be in their brain for a few minutes.

Very Happy Everything

Crocheted Cupcakes

Crocheted cupcakes! A reader sent me these the other day. Hi Jackie from New York. How are you? Thank you so much for these and all the time it took to make them. I’ve never crocheted anything, so I have to say, I’m super-impressed.

Soap Cupcake Pops

Cupcake Pops! Nope. They’re actually cupcake soaps on sticks. LoveLeeSoaps gave me these. They look pretty real, huh? You should see some of the other stuff she makes. It’s all crazy cute! I promise.

LoveLeeSoaps

Sprinkles Cupcake Mix

I also found this in my pantry today. Sprinkles cupcake mix. Sprinkles was very thoughtful to start selling a mix version of their fabulous cupcakes at Williams-Sonoma. Especially since I have been waiting FOREVER for them to open a store anywhere within a day’s drive from me. I had the real things once, and I’ve been thinking about them ever since.

But, here’s the problem with this mix and things like it. If you notice the expiration date on the right, you’ll see that I’ve had it for quite a while… way before that date even. It’s a quirk of mine. I find it extremely difficult to open cute packaging. I would rather just look at it contained, than open it. Quirky, right?

Sprinkles Cupcake Mix

Here’s another example of really cute packaging from Chronicle Books. Take a look at this Cupcake Kit! It’s so cute, I haven’t even opened the box to hold and look at all the fun stuff inside.

One Cupcake Kit

But, guess what?! I have two of them.

Two Cupcake Kits

So, maybe you can help me out. If I give one away, will you open it and tell me how fun everything inside is?

Please, because I’m going to put the other one on a shelf and stare at it.

Okay, it’s settled. One of these kits is up for grabs. But which one of you wants it? Let me know.


Enter for a chance to win:
A Cupcake Kit
  • Just leave a comment on this post and let me if you want to tear into this box. Easy.
  • Leave your comment with a way for me to contact you if you win (either a blog link or email)
  • Deadline to enter is Friday, May 29th at 9 p.m. Sorry, Time’s Up! Winner below. (recorded by the time stamp of your comment)
  • One winner will be chosen at random* and announced sometime Saturday morning on this post.

* One winner will be chosen at random, using random.org’s integer generator.

Time to reveal the winner.

It’s…

It’s…

It’s comment number…

1,132

Congratulations eRika! The goodies will be in your hands soon. I hope you have fun with it.

Now, guess what?! I’ve decided to go ahead and give the second one away also. That’s right. Two winners. Why? Because you guys are always so great and I know I will just be staring at mine on the shelf. I think I would feel guilty knowing how badly so many of you wanted one.

And the second winner is comment number 40. Ooooh, a low number this time. Who’s it gonna be?
Jenni, of course. And, I’d love to see any results from your new cupcake kit.

Thanks everyone who entered and graciously agreed to tear into this box for me. Some of you even have the same packaging problem as I do. (Yay, I’m not alone.) And, some of you… well, let’s just say I wouldn’t want to come between you and any sort of wrapped gift. But, it would be fun to watch. There were a total of exactly 2,800 entries for this giveaway and it was one I really enjoyed reading. Made me laugh, smile and wish I had even more kits to give. And Carissa, even though you didn’t win, and you were “number two-thousand-four hundred and fifty,” I did read your comment. Hi!

I know exactly what you mean…sometimes I think I like the packaging of things even more than the contents (that’s why I am so crazy about some of the items at Williams Sonoma). In this case though, I’d dig in for the goodies, but manage to preserve the packaging as well.
