CupCake cuties review.



Join the Cuties of the Month Cupcake Club

I received the
Fall Leaves Cupcake Kit (12.99) !
Theresa Deliberto, founder of Cupcake Cuties makes these adorable little kits that come with everything you need to make 24 of the cutest cupcakes ever! The come with these little bookmark looking wraps that you slip on to the cupcakes and have a little peel and stick adhesive that holds it on. Then it has a topping unique to the sleeve.  Even the box they come in looks designer and would actually make a great gift to a friend or family member who loves cupcakes and/or loves to cook! 


 I thought it was so cute- but wished I had pointed out what my favorites were.. (all the below in the post!) There are so many though and Giana really liked these! I was like, what the hey? It's all for the kids anyway! Not what I would've picked, because I am super crazy/funky/weird. But I do like it. My top two picks are the popcorn and hamburger. If it were Christmas I would definitely have wanted the Santa Face kit.

What is it with cupcakes now? They are everywhere. There are a few shops opened up in Jacksonville specializing in cupcakes and even in Fernandina. I haven't gotten around to visiting any of them yet. Mostly because I try to keep me away from sugar. Because I love me some carbs and sweets. It comes as no surprise these will be a major trend and have even been featured on Good Day L.A!

Well- with me gaining weight and with my sister's wedding ( *gasps* + pictures..... Dum-da-dum!) on the horizon.. the last thing I need is 24 cupcakes sitting around. Staring at me, saying.. "Eaeeeattttttt mmeeeeee.." Shaking my head. So, that being said- I decided to bake them for Giana's new school. Her class size is only 6 students.. but I figured the teachers &/or lunch-ladies could share them too! So I baked them up, strawberry with french vanilla icing! I took them to the school and the kids loved them! They were so sweet! I felt like a movie star. Nothing like a compliment from a six year old to put a smile on your face for the rest of the day and I got several.  I got big hugs upon arrival and when I left, plus they were the cutest sweetest kids ever. And one of them told me how pretty I was. Aw! Isn't that sweet? Sweeter than the cupcakes. The kids complimented me on how cute they were too. They then used the cupcakes sleeves as bracelets. :)


I took them to them Tuesday- and today Giana came home with 6 hand drawn and colored construction paper Thank You cards. I almost cried. I'm emotional, huh?

On the Cupcake Cuties website you can even find cupcake recipes.  See ALL the cupcake kits!

Slight Issue...  the kit I received "leaves" sprinkles are too big to be shaken out of the hole. The pastry bag didn't have a tip.. so I didn't try to use it. So mine weren't as pretty as they should've been. But the kids didn't  notice, so it was fine!


PS - Pillsbury makes the best strawberry batter EVER

Anyway.. if you want a neat craft to do with your kid, or have a party coming up; Cupcakes are so much better than a real cake. This has been my experience anyway. References? Cite my past 6 years as a mother. Especially for kids, and small kids mostly. Cakes are messy they have to be put on a plate- which would then end up in your floor. Cupcakes appeal to kids more too! So here are my pictures and links, check them out!

You can put in Promo Code  Cupcake10  and this will give you 15% off their whole order. You just need to enter Cupcake10 in the promo code at the shopping cart!

I really need a Pyrex cupcake or Tupperware carrying case for cupcakes. This is so ghetto. :)
