Surprise!! Target Kuppies for my stepmom

These are some 'Target' themed Kuppies my kids and I made for their Cici. She manages the Target store out here and 'B' loves to see her "Dogs". She has a collection of Target stuffed dogs, and 'B', is in love! She gave him a superman one and he still keeps it on his bed! They wanted to go see her and her dogs and they wanted mommy to make some cupcakes. It is supposed to be a surprise, but I had tomake sure she would be there! :D Well here is a picture or two of them. Enjoy!

Too cute for words

How adorable?! My sweet little angel came out of the restroom and this is what she looked like. My husband told me to take a picture of her and she started to look out the window and SNAP! Theres the picture. :D Like I said, adorable.

Peanut Butter Kuppies!

There is nothing better than a warm peanut butter cupcake. I made these with chocolate sprinkles on top, but next time I am thinking dark chocolate ganache. YUM.
I also looked online at Bake It Pretty and found these adorable eco-friendly nature-friendly cupcake holders. I must have them! This site has the ut-most spectacular cupcake holders ever! Here is another favorite of mine! The Pink Peacock holders are to-die-for! I also have a grand idea to use the Red & White striped ones for "Popcorn topped kuppies"!

Hot cupcakes!!

OK, so obviously my blog and new Kuppy Kakes FB page is working out!! I have my first baby shower gig!! Whoo-hoo!!!!! Thank you sooooo much Lisa! I cannot wait! So many ideas, it's a little girl so you know there will be pink, pink, and oh yeah did I mention PINK!

Strawberry Season

Spring is the season for the most delicious fruit ever! STRAWBERRIES. I found a recipe from Mrs. Paula Deen herself, for a delicious and refreshing fruit tart. I myself love tarts, especially in spring. Strawberries are the first fruits to pop up and ripen when it gets warm. The most fun I have had outdoors was at a strawberry patch, we left with a bushel of strawberries! Well I put the recipe below: so check it out and try it out!


  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened and sliced

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Fresh strawberries, kiwi slices, blueberries, raspberries

  • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Whipped cream, for garnish



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.



For the crust: In a food processor, combine the confectioners’ sugar, flour, and butter, and process until the mixture forms a ball. With your fingers, press the dough into a 12-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, taking care to push the crust into the indentations in the sides. Pat until the crust is even. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until very lightly browned. Set aside to cool.


For the filling and topping: Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Spread over the cooled crust. Cut the strawberries into 1/4-inch slices and arrange around the edge of the crust. For the next circle, use kiwi slices. Add another circle of strawberries, filling in any spaces with blueberries. Cluster the raspberries in the center of the tart.


For the glaze: Combine the limeade, cornstarch, lime juice, and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until clear and thick, about 2 minutes. Let cool. With a pastry brush, glaze the entire tart. You will not use all of the glaze.


Keep the tart in the refrigerator. Remove about 15 minutes before serving. Slice into 8 wedges and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.


Servings: 8 servings

Lets Play Catch-Up

These were my very first cupcakes that I had made for a good friend of mine, whose son loves Spider-Man. This unpredictable GA weather managed to melt my icing before I could make it to her house. But the fondant toppers were pretty good.

In the beginning.....

Hey guys, I have never had a blog in my entire life! (ha, all 25 years) But this is a new adventure. My loves in my life are my 2 beautiful kids, my husband, and BAKING. Cupcakes are my thing and I am starting to dabble in cakes. Hopefully, fingers crossed, I will flourish at both. (Or at least one) :D In this blog I will show cakes, cupcakes, any kind of pastry, I will dote on my kids and complain about my husband. Robots rock, love the Jetsons. I love love old music, as in 30's-50's. I am definately an old soul, but yes I am very modern in my temper and expectations! Just bear with me. Bahahaha. But all in all, am excited about this blog-journey.
