They say good things come in little packages which as we all know, is not true. However, in the case of cupcakes I will let it pass. I can’t get enough of these and there is something most satisfying about being able to eat a cake in one mouthful. Maybe that’s just me?
Cupcakes are the latest dessert to receive some serious design innovation. Here are ten of my favorites.
Billiard Pool Cupcakes
Clearly 10/10 for presentation. Pool reminds me of dodgy pubs and men stinking of beer, so I’m having a bad time matching these images up with cupcakes. I can’t see it being a happy marriage. Maybe I am biased, as I am no pool shark--and to be fair, not even a pool tadpole.
Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes
A smaller version of the Aunt Bessie’s mash cone. A great idea, and I love the grated cheese in place of icing sugar.
The search for the best cupcake design ever ends here. Fact.
There’s not much room on on the top of a cupcake, so I like the solution applied here to get more crumb for your cake - build upwards! The design is pretty funny too.
Just too brilliant for words - I would love to know why they thought of pandas out of all the things in the world you could base a cupcake design on.
Not only does the alligator made from cupcakes look really funny, I really like the way the design is spread over a group of cupcakes rather than just centering on one.
Little Miss Show Off here has made a cupcake to represent every one of her team members at university.
Chinese New Year Cookies
They almost give the corn cakes a run for their money on the design front. Visually, the red works really well with the fortune cookie, but I’m not sure if looks would replace taste in this case.
There is something disturbing about savory food recreated in sweet form. But it looks amazing and is a great gimmick.
A bit too girly for my tastes, but I know 90 percent of woman out here would disagree, so it made the grade.
