I love the idea of making different flavored cup cakes and different toppings and then put them on a cup cake tree ot stack a couple or three cake stands to display them.I seen articles where at some weddings they just do an elaborate cup cake tree with all kinds of combinations perfect for the bride who cant decide on flavors of cake.They can be very pretty especially if you are a good decorator and using fresh flowers and so on.

So many creative ideas there. This past weekend I watched Food Network - a segment called Cupcakes Unwrapped. If it airs again, it's worth viewing. One of the featured cupcake shops was Sprinkles, & many others. I clicked around over there to share the link, but got caught up in some interesting cupcake recipes (I saved). I will try to post the links. Some that caught my eye:

Hot chocolate cupcakes - the cupcakes are baked in coffee cups with whipped cream on top.

Strawberry cupcake - A cone shape is hollowed out, and a strawberry is stuffed inside.

Cupcake Bouquet - from Sandra Lee - thought this would make a unique treat for an open house.

Well, I'm cupcake inspired lol. What fun it would be to open a unique cupcake shop. Wanna go into biz together, PA, lol.

There was a Boston Cream Pie cupcake -- have to go backtrack & find that one again.

P.S. I've seen the tiered bride cupcake display - very pretty - and, if you don't have the tiered plate, you can make them with cans & platters.

Canuck, you don't give an indication where you are. U.S., Canada, etc., but the April/May issue of Taste of Home magazine has just hit the newsstands and features cupcakes.

The feature article is called "Crazy for Cupcakes." The photos are wonderful and the recipes sound delicious: Lemon Curd Cupcakes, Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes, Pineapple Upside-Down Cupcakes, Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes, just to name a few. You could probably get a bunch of ideas if you want to pick up a copy.
