60 Kooky Cupcakes

From Delectable Robot Desserts to Cuddly Creature Cupcakes

— April 22, 2011 — Lifestyle
The cupcake craze has not stopped, and these days, these delectable treats are offering foodies even more options with uber-kooky cupcakes to satisfy their cravings. This treat trend started with the help of the hit TV show Sex in the City, where the girlie characters ate at the upscale Magnolia Bakery. These creative confections are so popular that they've taken over traditional wedding cakes as a new party favorite and have even become the foodtographer's first choice as a scrumptious subject.

From honey-baked ham flavor to gory anatomical cupcakes -- as weird as they sound -- all of these baked goods are still very drool-worthy. Some of these desserts get even more funky as bakers house these bite-size cakes in miniature flower pots, something more interesting than a typical muffin wrap. Check out these kooky cupcakes and be inspired for your next delectable dessert.
