The Cupcake Characters!

Lately, I've been a little preoccupied with cupcakes. Not with eating them. My lemon bar fetish is safe from all competition. However, I've become obsessed with the idea of turning cupcakes into characters for the entertainment of my blog readers.

Like a ninja:

Only minus the turtle.

Or like a Were-llama...oddly enough, I couldn't find a single pic of a llama cupcake online. A valuable niche market being under-exploited by everyone on the planet!

Or I might make characters from my books, from movies, or from pop culture. (Yes, that means a Richard Simmons cupcake is in your future, dear reader. Tremble.) You get the idea.

Naturally, since I royally suck at arts and crafts, and this sort of qualifies, I'll need help. How fortunate for me that my hubby is amazingly skilled at cake art. I'm sure he'll help me. Who wouldn't want to put both a llama cupcake and a Richard Simmons cupcake on his resume?

So, if you have cupcake characters you'd like to see, leave a suggestion in the comments. I'll add the ideas to my own list and treat you all to some of the wildest, zaniest, funniest cupcakes you've ever seen.

Let the mayhem begin!


  1. Teluthian crest, please. Then one with a troll head. With hot pink hair. Oooooo and wouldn't it be cool to put the little fat troll feet on the bottom?

  2. Zombie cupcake - I'd love to see what THAT looks like!


  3. I heart cupcakes. There's a place in Long Beach called the Cupcakery that is absolutely my favorite place to go on earth. I love to watch them decorate... I wish I was that crafty.

  4. Hm. This is hard.

    See...I really want a sparkly Edward Cullen cupcake.

    But at the same time, I might need to see a spork themed creation.

    Then again, platypuses (or is it platypi?) are sorely underrepresented in baked goods, so I think it might be time to give them their place in the sun.

    Gah--I can't decide! I'll let you choose. :)

  5. I would love to see a werewolf. These are my absolute favorite at Halloween and I'm sure Clint could come up with a new and improved version! Gene Simmons would make a WICKED COOL cupcake-I can see it now with a fruit by the foot tongue!

    I love all monster cupcakes. Not realistic but fun-witches, mummies, Frankenstein, even Cookie Monster. Now that's a guy that deserves a character cupcake. Ohhh...and Oscar the Grouch-did you know they made him NICE now on his show? What a crock. Sesame Street deserves a bitchy blog all of their own. The COUNT would make a great cupcake too!

  6. Ooo, I think I have to agree with Shannon and go with a were-platypus.

  7. I can't figure out how to comment on this without using anonymous, so this is Amanda.

    I like the wereplaypus idea. I have no clue what that is but it sounds interesting.

    And maybe you should do the entire cast of Harry Potter. Not all the cast like the extra students but the main ones.

  8. Do the spork! And a ninja. How can you pass those up?

    And I want to see some characters from your books too.

  9. I think a kitty cupcake could be cute.
    Hmm . . . a sheep maybe?

  10. Really it must be a CHUCK NORRIS cupcake. Because it can kick all the other cupcakes' asses.

  11. OH YES! CHUCK NORRIS!!!! I think you need a poll, for voting.

  12. *remembers your biscuits that sidelined as rocks*

    Can I just ask for an edible one that doesn't require years of dentist work?

    I'm going to have to vote for a Lumiel Cupcake! What, no evil cupcakes? FINE!

    How about Richard Simmons RIDING the were-llama...cause you know he's their leader.

  13. Ooh, Lumiel cupcake! Yes!

    Oh wait, that's not on the list. Well then, I demand it be put on the list. =)

  14. Don't stop posting such themes. I love to read stories like this. Just add some pics :)

  15. What's this? Captain Jack Sparrow is losing? I admit, I tried to cheat. What? Captain Jack Sparrow would cheat. Oh yes, he would.

  16. Ok so after reading this blog entry I of course googled "unique cupcake ideas". I found THE ABSOLUTE COOLEST cupcakes I have ever seen!! And since apparently everyone knows I'm the cupcake girl, and after seeing all the amazing cupcakes, I decided maybe I want to make cupcakes, like as my JOB! Lol I tried to apply to GiGi's since they seem to be popping up like everywhere, but they're not hiring. :( Anyway, just thought you might like to know your blog may have just changed my life ha! You know though, I did not come across ONE Jack Sparrow cupcake, which is what I voted for! :)

  17. How is it possible that the were-platypus is beating Jack Sparrow?

    He's JACK SPARROW. Savvy?

    Opal - I mean, yeah. It's cake, frosting, and Captain Jack. No wonder it changed your life. ;)

A Bad Culinary Decision

A few days ago, on a whim, I bought a bag of Lay's Potato Chips in their new Chicken and Waffles flavor. I figured my kids (who love bot...
