One of my favorite cartoon episodes with a cupcake guest appearance

So there's this cartoon on Cartoon Network called "Adventure Time." I discovered it one day while on the elliptical at the gym watching TV. I laughed so hard I nearly fell off the machine. This is the only Adventure Time episode I've seen so far that has the cupcake cameo. They even gave him a mustache! Yesss! This particular episode also features a lot of other desserts, and they all have a slumber party together. It's called "Slumber Party Panic". One of my favorite parts is around 4m:30sec in, when they play truth or dare and the chocolate covered strawberry dares the cupcake to take off his wrapper. heehee!

That Takes the Cake Sugar Art Show and Cake Competition

Just a heads up that this weekend the Sugar Art Show and Cake Competition is in town.


Thinking of stopping by after Dim Sum on Saturday or on Sunday to check it out. There are some classes, but no cupcake classes and they are a bit expensive I think. Let me know if anyone is going to check it out!

And, I finally scheduled the meetup, its Dim Sum on Saturday at 12pm at Fortune. Hope everyone can make it!

How to draw a cupcake tutorial

So I was googling images of "kittens" the other day when I was in a bad mood at work because, I mean, let's face it, how can you not smile looking at a million kitten pictures? In doing so, I found a web page describing how to draw anime kittens... Here's the one i learned how to draw :) It's fun!

and here is my rendition, which I am truly proud of since I don't normally exhibit artistic talent even though my mom is an artist (sighhh). I made him have a heart shaped nose and a bob tail in honor of my manx kitten that died last month. He squeaked instead of meowing:

They also show you how to draw puppies and piglets and lots of things.. apparently even cupcakes! Here's their cupcake: 

It's awesome, let's try it!! This inspires me to have a cupcake art party too. Anyways, the web page is:

Introduction meetup?

Hi there! I want to schedule something soon to meet everyone! Something casual where we could all hang out is what I was thinking. Maybe dim sum, or happy hour, or a picnic since the weather is getting nicer. I wanted to go to dim sum because I've never been but there are so many other awesome possibilities too! I mentioned something on the meetup page as well. What does anyone think?

Feel free to post cool things too, like really tasty recipes you want to share and cupcake-related news!

Hi my name is.. Cupcake!

..no actually it's Aimee but my nickname amongst my friends is Cupcake. It all started from an offhand comment I made one day to one person about them that had this weird snowball effect until before I knew it, I had a tattoo of a cupcake on my foot, everyone was calling me it, and I started baking them a lot more. I don't know what it is, I just feel attracted to their colorfulness, and I am inexplicably driven to find the perfect cupcake recipe.. Anyway, I agreed to be the new organizer for the Meetup group since Jackie is moving.. I will make it a point to do the best job ever for everybody!!
This is my first blog I ever made so hang in there while I figure it out :) I put a link to the Meetup Group on the left.
Here's a picture of me posing next to a cake trying to be cool in NYC. I actually think it might be a muffin but whatever I still had to pose by it. So now you know what I look like.

and here's a picture of my cupcake tattoo
I've heard that cupcake tattoos are considered trendy these days, but I was not aware of that when I got it. I just think they're awesome looking and colorful. It seems like a pretty legit tattoo trend though if there has to be one.
Well I will meet you all soon, bye! Gotta go frost some cakes!
