Update: I mentioned Seattle’s beloved Trophy Cupcake below, and as it turns out, Jennifer Shea of Trophy will be on Martha Stewart’s show this Thursday, demonstrating a s’mores cupcake recipe! Had to share that.
Martha Stewart has declared it Cupcake Week, and who are we to argue? It begins with a contest: “Share photos of your most creatively decorated cupcakes — use flowers, candy, marzipan, or whatever inspires — and you could win an elegant cupcake tree from the Martha Stewart Collection.” If you don’t win, you can console yourself with the perhaps less elegant, but infinitely practical (It’s true! I love mine!) Cupcake Courier. Not into baking and have a lot of disposable income? Celebrate with the latest cupcake-inspired furniture from Jellio: The Cupcake Seat (above). Jellio also offers a Cupcake Table, which we’ve talked about before (when it was known as the “Birthday Table”). Still too much effort? Revisit some easy, fun first-birthday tips from Megan K., including the cutest birthday hat you ever did see. (Incidentally, if you’re ever in Seattle and need a serious cupcake fix, Trophy is the place to go.) –Mary T.
