Low-Fat Cupcakes! Hooray!

Photo from TLC, DC Cupcakes

I try to eat as healthy as possible most of the time but I must leave room in my diet for an occasional cupcake. Cupcakes make me happy. So, if I make low-fat cupcakes I can eat more, right? Right. Well, the girls from Georgetown Cupcake (the Cupcake Sisters from DC Cupcakes) have shared a low-fat version of their Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes and I can't wait to try them. You can find the recipe, here

Thank you Katherine and Sophie for giving us a healthy version of these super rich, super chocolaty cupcakes!

P.S. You can find the naughty (aka regular) version of their Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes, here

Happy 5th Birthday Dippidee!

Doggie Cupcakes From So Cupcake

Earlier this week we stopped by So Cupcake to get some of their adorable mini cupcakes. It was really hard to choose just six from the 20 or so flavors they had that day. I noticed when I was picking out my cupcakes that they now sell doggie cupcakes and I just had to buy a couple. I was assured by the owner of So Cupcake that they are made with very dog-friendly ingredients.

Needless to say, the dogs went BANANAS over them. Madison (see smiling Jack Russell) took her cupcake out of the bowl, ran off the deck to the grass, and devoured it. I am glad I removed the cupcake liner for her.

Eddie (see Chihuahua) was a little more dainty eating his. He licked off the frosting first and then ate the rest in a couple of bites. 

Sprinkles Cupcakes also sell adorable doggie cupcakes which our dogs loved.

Congratulate Your Grad With Cupcakes

Cupcakes are the perfect way to say congratulations to that special person in your life that is graduating. For an added touch you can have them frosted in their school colors or if you live close to a Sprinkles Cupcakes you can order graduation cupcakes adorned with graduation caps (pictured below). 

Along with the cupcakes you can give them a copy of Oh, The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss (my personal favorite gift to give at graduations).

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

Dippidee Voted Best Cupcakes In Utah County

The people voted and Dippidee was named best bakery, best cupcake, and best dessert in the Utah County Daily Herald. Congratulations Dippidee! You deserve it. If you stop in this week (May 10-14) and make a purchase you will receive one free fun size cupcake to celebrate.

I highly recommend the Little Devil cupcake. It is chocolate heaven and it's one of my 'top 5' favorite cupcakes. My husband recommends the Caramel White Chocolate. It is his #1 favorite cupcake.

Georgetown Cupcake on The Nate Berkus Show

Today Katherine and Sophie, owners of Georgetown Cupcake and stars of the hit show DC Cupcakes, were on The Nate Berkus Show serving up tips and tricks about baking and frosting cupcakes and how they made these adorable cupcake flower pots (see picture above). To get all of their fun tips and their recipe for chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting, click here.

Frosting Shots

Do you ever just crave frosting, not the whole cupcake? There are several cupcakeries that just offer a "frosting shot" for a dollar or two. Most offer a variety of flavors to choose from and serve just the right amount in little sample cups. I recently heard a rumor that Sprinkles Cupcakes sell frozen frosting shots (see picture above). Doesn't that sound delish? I need to plan a road trip to Scottsdale, AZ just so I can try one out for myself.

If you want a shot of frosting but don't see it on the menu at your local cupcakery, just ask. Some offer them but just don't have it on the menu.

Utahans can get their frosting shot fix at The Sweet Tooth Fairy.

I Met The Sweet Tooth Fairy

Today I went to The Sweet Tooth Fairy to get my three free cake bites for Mother's Day as well some of the new flavor-of-the-month cupcakes, including; Mayan Chocolate, Cinnamon Churro, and Dulce de Leche. I was so surprised to see Megan Faulkner Brown, the owner of The Sweet Tooth Fairy, walk out of the back room. I have seen pictures of her on their website and I've seen her on QVC, Rachel Ray, and Outrageous Kid Parties. I knew who she was the second I saw her. And guess what? She waited on me. She is like a celebrity to me - a celebrity that makes some of my favorite cupcakes. I wasn't the only one excited either, the people behind me in line were eager to meet her as well. We talked about our kids, cupcakes, and her TV appearances. I am so excited that I finally got to meet her and she really was as sweet as she could be.
