Please share your favorite cupcake website or foodie blog?
Oh fun, I have a bunch, here are my absolute favorites though
http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/ (I have made so many awesome recipes from here and I love her photos!)
Can't wait to see what others post! Andrea
The sites that have already been posted are awesome. One of my favorites lately has been the Bakerella site.
I am typing this from my phone and it won't let me post the URL but if you just google "bakerella" you'll see it.
for recipes i like
www.cupcakeblog.com - but it has closed down although all recipes are still available.
www.cupcakeproject.com - love the recipes and the woman running it is so funny!
the only "foodie blog" I visit is
www.smittenkitchen.com - she is funny, she tells you what went wrong with a certain recipe, she tells you how good a recipe is and mainly I go here because of two words: FOOD PORN! Her pictures are AMAZING! seriously. go. there. now.
I love all the above for recipes also, but I think my favorite is Cupcake Hero. Each month they have a contest using a specific ingredient and all the entrants recipes are featured along with the winner. You can go forever just clicking on links from there and the recipes I have tried so far are just super. A picture of each cupcake is also posted and I like seeing what they should look like.
My absolute favorite for cc pictures and ideas is Flickr photo streams. The talent is just amazing, and most are willing to share techniques and recipes. I have folders full of pictures and ideas---what fun!!!!
my favourites are:
thanks for sharing all of these! My favorite is pinkcakebox & bakerella!
Love this! cupcakenvy.com is so cute!
Not a website; but Taste of Home emails out a "Cupcake of the Week"
Thanks for sharing! I just clicked on www.lecupcake.blogspot.com and the person who makes those cupcakes is AMAZING!!
It looks like a star tip to me Michele.
How do you get the swirl to not be so loose? Does that make sense? Just move your wrist or don't move your wrist? Thanks meemaw!
Michelle, Wilton has a tip No 172 that is a much smaller zig zag (if that makes sense lol) that you could do this with.
i have to agree with some earlier posts-other than cc which has great ideas bakerella and thepinkcakebox are my favs!!
I'm thinking you would have to use the star tip with the finest zigzag end and then let it build a little before moving it. I'm not sure without trying it but I believe that's the way they did. Maybe someone on here will know for sure.
Thanks meemaw and charlie! I'll be looking for that tip! Charlie...where in mo are you??
Go to this site and check out the "miss u" cuppies on page 3....what tip is this done with? Any ideas?
Also on page 3....what tip is the engagement gift "roses" done in? it looks so cute! I've never seen that done before!
Your welcome Michelle! I am about an hour south of Kansas City. You?
I think that is just a 1M tip. The same one you use for the rose.
I'm about 40 minutes south of St. Louis! Crystal City.
There are a lot of peopl on here from the St Louis area! Wish we could work out a "get together"! Wouldn't that be fun! then we could all make cupcakes together!!
