Too Cute Teapot Cake and Cupcakes

Just a quick post to show you this adorable cake and cupcakes made by a reader of My Insanity. I mention that because that is how I found her. I really wish that I could claim to be the inspiration behind this brilliance, but I’m afraid this insanity all belongs to the mommy of The […]

OK. I think this will be my last Valentine’s Post, since it is Valentine’s Day already and the stores are all moving on to what? The 4th of July?

I’m a Pop Star :-)

Remember these? Well they were included in Bakerella’s latest montage of cupcake pops from around the world. My pops are featured for about 2 seconds, 2/3 of the way through the long montage, but Bakerella called me (and everyone else featured) a pop star! It’s fun to see what everyone has done with her clever […]
