Favorite Things: Cupcake Cuties

Cupcake Cuties - Making Cute Cupcakes Couldn't Be Easier
We'll admit to being hopeless at cake decorating. Four years of workin a bakery, and we can barely manage to write "Happy Birthday" without looking like a four-year-old did it. But when we heard recently about "Cupcake Cuties," we thought ... this is something we could handle. As much as we love our fix of Georgetown Cupcake, Hello Cupcake, Sprinkles, Curbside Cupcake, Crumbs, Baked & Wired and more ... making our own dessert for parties not only appeals to our inner Martha Stewart, it's much more economical.
The easy-to-use kits come ready to decorate up to two dozen cupcakes and provide step-by-step instructions to turn your box mixed blahs into custom creations. Priced at just under $20 a pop, they aren't cheap, but they're still significantly less than buying a dozen or so at your favorite bakery ... and also cheaper on a per-cupcake basis (and more creative) than some of our favorite Williams-Sonoma kits.
Really want to step up your baking habits? Order their Cutie of the Month club. At $18.95 a month, you'll recieve a seasonal delivery of the newest kit. It sounds like the perfect gift for a young mom ... or, you know, someone who bakes a lot.
