Cupcake Charm Necklaces & Cup Cake Charms - London Jewellery / Jewelry
by Anna Yu
Ever since Carrie and the gang from "Sex and the City" step foot into Magnolia Bakery for one of their cupcakes, the worldwide craze for the frosted sweet treats hasn't died down since. While I'm busy budgeting for my designer shoe fund, bag fund, and oh yeah, bills, I can't always indulge in a $4 treat everyday. That's why the Smart Planet Mini Cupcake Maker is so handy. This gadget makes 6 mini cupcakes in just 5 minutes with recipes included. If you think about it, it's also quite health conscious since you're eating a mini sized cupcake instead of a regular sized one (but there's no saying that all 6 could disappear within minutes!). Of course, you can also make mini muffins, cornbread and other treats but cupcakes are definitely #1. Like they always say, when you want things done right, do it yourself. Now I just have to figure out how to automatically frost them.Price: $16.95Who Found It: facadeindreams was first to add the Smart Planet Mini Cupcake Maker to the Hive.
As much as your honey might complain every time there's something sweet on the table to threaten their status as a size 2 (ha!), Valentine's Day is one of the few occasions that you just have to let yourself indulge. I mean, the holiday just wouldn't be complete without at least a box of chocolates, whether you're sharing them with your Valentine or just trying to make the night more bearable for your single self (who needs a man when you have candy, anyway?). But I say if your significant other is going to take the opportunity to go wayward with their resolution diet, help make it count with gourmet V-Day goodies. I'm talkin' melt-in-your-mouth Petit Fours from Williams-Sonoma, pink cupcakes from Godiva (heck yes they make cupcakes!), or if you're a sucker for tradition, swap your usual store-bought chocolates with couture truffles from Vosges! Yeah, they're meant to be gifts... I just hope your Valentine is willing to share! If the thought of all these treats isn't enough to tempt you, check out the slideshow to really start drooling.
