If you live in Salt Lake City, UT, you are in for a real treat - The Night Shift Coffee Company located at 5171 Cottonwood St, Ste. 160 (on the Intermountain Medical Center campus) sells gourmet bite-sized cupcakes. They are only $1.00 and they are so decadent, moist, and delicious. You can literally eat them in one to two bites, but I promise these cupcakes will leave you satisfied. Did I mention they are only $1.00? Stop by for a cup of coffee and try one (or six) of these fabulous little cupcakes.

New cupcake show alert! This one is on Cooking Channel and it is called Cupcake Confidential (I was channel surfing the other night and came across this fun new show). On this particular episode they followed three different cupcake entrepreneurs through the triumphs and trials of running a successful cupcake business. I am not sure if they will following the same three each week or if they will introduce others - I haven't quite figured this show out yet.
Here are the stars from this week's episode:
Brandon from Mission Minis in San Francisco, CA
Erica from Sweet E's Bake Shop in Los Angeles, CA
Hollis from Sweet! By Good Golly Miss Holly in Orlando, FL
All three have been on Cupcake Wars, so it was fun to see each of them in action and running a successful cupcake business.
You can find the TV schedule for Cupcake Confidential, here.

I pin, do you? I have no idea what I did with my spare time before I discovered Pinterest. Pinterest is a virtual pinboard were I can collect all the beautiful, fun, creative, and delicious things I find on the web. In the past I would print, save, or bookmark cupcake recipes and now I have one place to keep all of my favorites.
On Pinterest you can browse through pins created by other people or you can create your own. If you browse through the millions of pins already on Pinterest you can discover new ideas and be inspired to try new things. Pins are pictures (or quotes) and if there is a how-to or recipe just click on the picture to get the web address. You can create categories for all of your pins. I have 16 different categories, including; things I want to make, places I want to go, things I love, styles I love, ideas for my little one, cupcakes (of course), and more.
There are so many cupcake recipes on Pinterest. So, if you are looking for beautiful photos along with delicious cupcake recipes, Pinterest is the place to find them and keep them organized.
You can follow my cupcakes and cake pops pinboard (and my other boards that interest you), here. Happy Pinning!
