  2. How To Make Princess Peach Cupcakes With Tiny Crowns and Then Die of Cuteness and Sugar Overload

    Do Try This At Home

    These are made with peach flavored cupcake batter, filled with peach filling (using real peaches), but, oddly enough, do not feature peach flavored icing. Then they get tiny crowns. Which is probably two steps past the point at which I would give up on completing any of them and just eat the whole batch. Face it: these cupcakes are more regal than you. Probably sweeter, too. Learn how to make them here. Previously in DIY Food

  4. There Will Be A Bake Sale To Benefit NASA This Weekend. Yes, Really.

    Not a Misprint

    NASA, we knew things were tough but we had no idea it was this tough.  This Saturday, there will be a bake sale held to raise money for space programs. There may also be a car wash in the near future. Why has NASA resorted to the tactics of middle school PTA members? To make a point.

  6. How To Make Captain America Cupcakes

    Make It So

    We're not sure we have the patience for contributor Elizabeth Giorgi's recipe for Cap cupcakes, but we would certainly have the patience to eat them. 1. Bake a cupcake. Any kind, then put white frosting on them. Make sure it’s pretty even, because it will help later. 2. Get some fondant circle cutters. I used these. Put the largest one on around the edge. Now, use your clean fingers to gently tap on some edible glittering sugar dust. I used this brand. (You can buy it at Michael’s Crafts.)

    A bakery in Beverly Hills, Sprinkles, has provided the world with something it didn't know it needed until it was presented with it: A 24-hour cupcake ATM. Sprinkles calls it the "world's first cupcake automat," and yes, essentially it is just a cupcake vending machine that never shuts down like a regular vending machine doesn't, but regular vending machines aren't exactly built in a way conducive to a cupcake's structural integrity.

    And that's just the partial chemical content of salt and baking powder. These cupcakes were created for a reception at somebody's chemical engineering department. Dibs on Polonium, it's got my name in it! Wider shots of how the table was laid out (on the table) below:

  10. The Hunger Games In Cupcake Form: Problem Solved

    May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

    Listen, if the Hunger Games just came in the form of competitive cupcake baking, I think everybody would walk away sated. What? The Hunger Games isn't about people being hungry? Well, at least if it was a cupcake making competition, Peeta would still win.
