Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Originally uploaded by Sweet cupcakes Co. Dublin Ireland

Hello!! We have a couple of days left for the end of the year and we are rushing to finish the last orders of the year! Well, I think in general was a great year, and even all the bad news I believe Ireland is a beautiful country, great people and you will find the most radioactive green grass in the world!! So I want to dedicate next year to Ireland, to its history and people and for all the nice rainbows after the rain.

Ireland Rocks!

Happy New Year!!

10 days to Christmas!!

Wow!! time flies when you are having fun!! It is again my favourite time of the year. I know it is all about marketing but still it is one of my favourite seasons. I particularly love going for a walk in City Centre and looking at the shop decorations and people rushing with loads of bags... happy children around and loads of delicious food! This year I fall in love with Starbucks gingerbread coffee and this flavour has been the inspiration for our seasonal gingerbread cupcake with creamy cream cheese frosting mmmm total indulgence!!

Well, I hope your Christmas and New Year is filled with excitement! And stayed tunned for another magical year with cupcakes, cookies and surprises!

Keep well!

Happy Hello-ween not yet.......... but soon!

Ha ha I know we are still in September but I can't help it to think about Halloween. When I was a child it was one of my favourite times of the year (of course Christmas and my birthday are two of my favourite too!!). My mother used to dress my sister and I as witches and my brother one year was a scare crow... oh nice time! :P I missed them so much!!! Well, then again I am having a super idea with Hello Kitty cupcakes... they will be some Hell-ooooo cupcakes. Scary :D I am thinking some giveaways... :D stay tunned!

Paddy and I are cleaning the place and can believe the amount of papers we acumulate during the year!! 3 bags full of papers, magazines, etc... etc... I wonder all the trees that have to die so we can have a letter from the gas, electricity etc... lesson learned......... Ask the supplier ASAP for an online statements from now on. Ahh well, the only papers I love are my books, lately I am buying loads of books, my favourites are the one of bakeries in New York but also Peggy Porschen books are lovely and the photography is very well done. Talking about books, I just found a bakery in New York that is named Baby Cakes NYC, wow they make cupcakes with no sugar, no dairy, no eggs, no milk, no soya and that are actually good for you. I was very excited about the idea of making a line with similar characteristics, but most of the ingredients are only sold in America... ohh shut :s well still pretty with interesting ideas like the use of coconut oil instead of butter (tried the banana bread and was yummy) and this is the first time I use coconut oil for baking so it was good for a change!

Now I need a bookshelve urgently!! IKEA Sunday? :) yeah!

Well, below a photo of my growing collection!

Be Well,

Great week!

The never ending question..

Swirl or flat? Vote!! :)
Originally uploaded by Sweet cupcakes Co. Dublin Ireland

Well, it is difficult to know what works best. I think depending on the flavour of the cupcake looks better flat like for example the carrot cake... but the strawberr looks better flat........ don't know :) What do you think?

Last Saturday was definetely a good day for a White (or Navy and Ivory) Wedding, the sky was blue, the weather was nice (not to warm not to cold) and the venue was fab a Castle! Wow, when we arrived to set the cakes we were fascinated just with the place. It was really a fairy tale Wedding. The couple were fantastic and cheerful and their colours theme were Navy and Ivory and a couple of yellow flowers :) Also, we had a couple of our moist carrot cupcakes (so far my favourite of the season) mmmm moist and spicy mmmm Well, and when we picked up the stand on Sunday, we got the good news... no cupcake was left... so they were all slauther.... but they know their destiny and they are happy to fulfill it :)

She likes cute....... me like it!

Cupcake pin
Originally uploaded by she.likes.cute

Lately I've been obsesed with felt fabric toys and I discovered "She likes cute" in Flickr. Wow I have to say I'm in love with the designs and her cookies!! and of course the sweet faces.

Also, I discovered Kawaii that according to Wikipedia:
"Since the 1970s, cuteness, in Japanese kawaii (可愛い?) (literally, "loveable" or "adorable") has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behavior, and mannerisms.[1]"

Yes... I am totally into Kawaii and I didn't know it... is like that feeling you have inside and can't explain it... I think I have been drinking too much coffee!

Anyway, visit Alenka's store and prepare to splash in the cutest items ever!!

Kawaii day,

It is officially I am fan of IKEA, the only problem I have is that I want to buy everything but the budget (and Paddy) don't allow me to go beyond my deepest buying desires!! We are trying to organize the kitchen (aka cupcake studio) and we have found loads of solutions and the problem is deciding... we spend 4 hours yesterday in IKEA!! Couldn't believe it... of course we went for the economical IKEA dinner (18 euro for two including dessert!) and then we even had a second dinner at the end (after 4 hours) 2 hot dogs for 4 euro each (we are pigs). And we bought a couple of stuff and spend 2 hours building a storage stacking solution yeah!!! We still have to go next weekend (hope less hours) and get the rest of the stuff.... It is so tiring to buy :P

Happy Baking

Cupcakes Take the cake blogged about us!

Our cupcakes only crime.... being so tasty
Originally uploaded by Sweet cupcakes Co. Dublin Ireland

I forgot to blog about this...sorry guys lately I have been very busy but I will do my best to blog more often. We were blogged in the super Cupcakes Take the Cake blog about the little ones going to jail. How funny is that. How this idea came, well it was the week we were doing a test for the fair size (new size) and then I wanted to take a photo to show the people the sizes so it will be easier to choose... but something lead to the next and I was watching a crime tv show.. that honestly don't know the name and then Bingo! I say how funny would that look ha ha ha Yes they look funny but I couldn't find smaller stickers for the codes as the mini cupcakes can't not be seen ... well :D

Happy Baking.
