Welcome to Cupcake Corner! My little corner of the cupcake world!

April Fool’s Day is a day to have fun playing pranks on family and friends. In our house, we have fun with our food! I usually make a fun April Fool’s Day Dinner {I will update it this year for you} and of course, we have cupcakes too!

Here are some ideas for having fun with your food…cupcake style!

Chicken Nugget & Fry Cupcakes

I created these for Andrew’s birthday last year, but they are perfect for April Fool’s Day.

Corn on the Cob and Hamburger Cupcakes

Corn on the Cob and Hamburgers that I made for Memorial Day were tons of fun! I have a video for them too.

Snow Cone Cupcakes

Your kiddos will love these Snow Cone Cupcakes…there is video for these too.

Spaghetti & Meatballs Cupcakes

These fun cupcakes were shared by Kimberly from Raising Olives. She made them for her hubby’s birthday.

TV Dinner Cupcakes

Delectable Edibles created this Mock TV Dinner. I found them via Tip Junkie…she has more ideas too!

Picnic Cupcakes for Memorial Day  :: on

How about Hamburgers with a side of Corn on the Cob? And it wouldn’t be a picnic without ants, right? Once again, I started with the ideas from the What’s New, Cupcake? and Hello, Cupcake books. I also found the hamburger cupcakes on Flickr.

Would you like to learn how to create these fun and easy cupcakes? Great, I made a How-to Video to help.

How fun! I think they would be a hit at any Memorial Day get together, summer picnic or even Fourth of July party!

Cupcake Tuesday ~ Nuggets with a Side of Fries

By | April Fool's Day Cupcakes, Birthday Cupcakes, Cupcakes | 27 Comments


Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday!   If you are new here, grab a cup of tea or a glass of milk and enjoy a cupcake!

Today is a very special day at our house! Our oldest son, Andrew, turns 19!

In honor of Andrew’s birthday, I made him his favorite dinner!

Chicken Nuggets and Fries

With a little dessert too! After seeing the fries in the new What’s New Cupcake? book, I knew right away what I wanted to bake for Andrew’s birthday.

They were really very easy too!


Happy Birthday, Andrew! We love you!

I stopped at McDonald’s in our hometown, and the nice gals there gave me the empty containers to display in.

Disclaimer: McDonald’s did not pay me to display their wrappers, but I did receive them for free.
