Bake it in a Cake is a great blog! The creator is not a professional baker but a woman who was interested in cupcakes! She finds creative ways to spice up cupcakes and bake things within the cupcake itself. She has recipes for cupcakes that have pudding, cookies, and cherry pies in the middle of her cupcakes. It is a must see!

For those of you who are fans of the game Angry Birds, check out these edible toppers from Artisan Cake Company. Twenty-four pieces will cost you $115.00 plus shipping, however, they do have sets available for as low as $15.00.
For everyone local in the Lehigh Valley, I found a gem in Whitehall. The store is called Bev's Cake and Candy. Click here for the link. The store is located off of the Fullerton Exit on 22. They have many supplies. In my opinion, they are a little pricer then some other baking stores, however, they have a larger supply and definitely are cheaper than your larger chain retail stores. Unlike some cake and candy stores in the area, this store has supplies for bakers, cupcake makers, and chocolate/candy lovers.

Last summer I went to a end-of-year picnic for the staff at my elementary school. To celebrate, I created cupcakes that look like apples. Vanilla cake is frosted in red, a mint candy leaf is added, and a pretzel stick is places in the center as the stem. The chocolate cupcakes are bakes in leopard print cupcakes liners because our school mascot is a "Little Leopard".
