"...Usually when whipping up a new dish, I take my Bubbe’s recipes and put a little spin on it. This time, I channeled my favorite dessert when recreating this recipe- what could be more fun than cupcakes? I can’t think of a thing! Here is a healthy kosher creation even kids will enjoy: potato zucchini kugel cupcakes..."
"..."One of the parents at the school owns the property that Jester King is on, and [the brewery was] about to have [its] second anniversary party," explains Biesi. "She asked if we wanted to be a vendor." At that point, Biesi hadn't made more than a few dozen cupcakes at a time, but she seized the opportunity..."
"...Fans of the Food Network's Cupcake Wars will probably know Chloe Coscarelli as the vegan baker who emerged victorious in a segment of the baking competition show with Dark Chocolate orange cupcakes...."
"...What a curious beast this kiddie flick is, with its two wolf packs turf-warring over a prime feeding ground for caribou but played out with an almost comical bloodlessness. Wolf cubs Kate (voiced by Panettiere) and Humphrey (voiced by Long) – she the tart alpha, he the court-jester omega – talk big about how delicious caribou tartare would taste but snack onscreen only on blueberries and cupcakes and the occasional bone licked clean of anything remotely resembling dead meat..."
"...First there were cupcakes, then buttercream-filled macarons. More recently, the Cronut has taken center stage in the realm of sugary treats..."
"...From the time I was a little boy, I fantasized about getting married. Back then, it was all cupcakes and pretty flowers – child's thoughts on what love meant..."
"...10. There's still time to enter in one of the four competition categories: Pies & Tarts; Cakes & Cupcakes; Cookies; and Other - which covers plenty of territory...."
"...Sugar Mamas, Sugar Circus, Delish, and Sweetish Hill: I have tried cupcakes from each of these places and have been the envy of my gluten-plus friends. Sugar Mamas (1905 S 1st St; www.sugarmamasbakeshop.com) and Sugar Circus (2613 E 5th St; www.sugarcircusatx.com) usually carry at least one gluten-free flavor a day; call ahead to see if it is something you like..."
"...I may be the last (wo)man standing against the national love affair with cupcakes. But I admit, after reading and baking from Austinite Jennifer Ross' The Icing on the Cupcake, I could be close to conversion..."
"...She has since learned the food business "on the fly" since founding Stubborn Foodie earlier this year. "I started comparing the cupcakes I was making for friends to the products that were already available commercially, and I kept coming across ingredients that I had to look up online," she says..."
"...Austin Food Blogger Alliance hosts their first benefit for the Bake a Wish Foundation, a nonprofit that provides birthday cakes and other baked treats for kids in shelters and foster homes, as well as the elderly and disabled. Cupcake & Cocktails will feature an invitational taste-off of cocktail-themed cupcakes, plus a silent auction of food experiences, products, and services, 6-9pm Wednesday, July 25, in the ballroom of the AT&T Conference Center (1900 University Ave)..."
"...The giant red-and-turquoise neon cupcake above Sugar Mama's Bakeshop uplifts the whole intersection at South First and Mary, giving the area a happy and hopeful air. Sugar Mama's crisp black-and-white, newly painted interior is bustling and hopeful, too, and a fitting backdrop for the colorful display of cupcakes and dessert bars...."
"...The trend of customizing desserts that started with mix-ins or crush-ins in flavors of ice cream has spread to cupcakes and cookies. Lori Schneider, owner of Figs Catering (www.figscatering.com), included a cupcake bar in a catered event last year, and the concept proved so popular, she ultimately had to create a new business entity to handle the demand..."
"...On offer at the party were swag bags full of Bioré facial cleansers, adverts, and, of course, a copy of Jane magazine with a cover that screamed, "Sex Tips So Good, Your Boyfriend Will Want to Pay You." Ah, feminism, what have you wrought? The spread (eh, food, that is) wasn't too shabby, either, with BBQ sandwiches, little cups of pasta salad, and teensy little cupcakes ostensibly made with Diet Dr Pepper (and I know this because I now have the recipe on a handy, glossy card), because girls shouldn't eat full-sized cupcakes, and they sure as hell had better not have sugar in them! Don't they know that shrinking cupcakes down to bite-sized pieces only makes it easier to eat 80 of them? And when you have to wait 30 minutes watching Baby Steps set up to play, it's easy to overdo it on the teensy cupcakes. I'm just saying...."
"...Crunchy, cinnamon-y, chocolaty. But what I really came for were the cupcakes, which a Georgetown-dwelling friend of mine had raved about on Facebook, and what I assumed was this tiny bakery's calling card..."
"...Author/blogger Natalie Slater, basically a walking tattoo, offers up a dessert-forward approach to vegan eating, kicking things off with a menagerie of cupcakes and treats, from banana bread french toast cupcakes to Cujo Chow, a tasty, coconut-studded riff on Chex Mix that my family particularly enjoyed. Savory recipes come later in the book, with crazy concoctions like french fry tacos, falafel waffles (I would be loath to use a waffle iron for anything other than actual waffles, but I also make no claims to punk cred), and a tantalizing-looking samosa potpie...."
"...La Ganga told us, over cupcakes: "I went through a long period in my life of 'What am I? What am I doing? Should I be this thing or that thing? Should I draw? Should I write? Should I act?' I just never knew, so I'd do all these different things. And I kept fantasizing about the kinds of shows I wanted to do..."
"...Quack's 43rd Street Bakery (411 E. 43rd, 453-3399, www.quackquacks.com): pies, cakes, cupcakes, and seasonal decorated cookies..."
"...On brighter notes, Delish Bakery (209 W. Third, 473-4118, www.delish-cupcakes.com) is now open to service the Downtown area with cupcakes, desserts, coffee, and other sweet treats, and we're also very appreciative for the tip that sent us to a new little family-owned spot in the campus area..."
