Looks like the long-standing cupcake trend has had a make-over. And you know what? I totally dig it! I’m honked off that I didn’t think of this in the first place. Of course, the first thing my cheap self thought when I saw these was, “Hope! I can make push-ups with that cheap sherbet and my kid will never know they’re not the grossly over-priced rainbow ones!”
You can find these push-pop containers at the Layer Cake Shop (my fave place for baking supplies). I can’t wait to make some of these myself. These are a few that are inspiring me to binge on cake batter and sprinkles. (Click on image to visit site).

We made it through the first non-camp day of summer vacation. Sat down and made out our schedule for the week. It may sound a tad anal retentive, but I really have no choice in the matter. The child functions best when on a semi-rigid schedule. So…semi-rigid schedule it is. I’m talking curriculum, planned activities and outings. The whole nine yards. Only I don’t get a paycheck. Why else would I be taking an expensive multivitamin every day? Certainly not for the fishy burps.
So…after completely reenacting the Chipmunks Sequel and eating waffles, we made cupcakes in a cone. I was grossly irresponsible and let my kid eat cake batter. Raw eggs!! I ate some too…that way if she got sick, I’d be puking right along with her. Sensible decision, right?
It’s off to Turtle water park tomorrow…where I’ll sit baking in the sun, watching my kid roll around on wet concrete, happy as a clam in mud. Yippee.
