Cupcakes of all flavors are a great thing to serve at corporate events. The ones depicted here are a mix of vanilla and chocolate treats, although other, more exotic and less crowd pleasing flavors can be chosen. The frosting is a basic buttercream, as the entire point is to showcase the company logo, fondant versions of company products, or, more simply, just the company colors. Cupcakes are easy to eat (no utensils required) which is why they are so popular.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a giveaway here on The Cupcake Blog. Shame on me!
Luckily Kingdom Magic Vacations is thinking about you and offered up this $100 Visa Gift Card for me to give away! WooHoo! All you have to do is give them a “Like” over of Facebook and you will be entered to win!
FYI…I used Kingdom Magic to book my family’s most recent Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas and love, love, loved the service I received from my agent Laura. I highly recommend using them to book your next vacation. It won’t cost you anything extra and they can find the deals that you are looking for!
The folks over at Shenzhen Knives sent me this super sleek and sexy knife to take on a test run. Ceramic Knife?!?! I never knew there was such a thing! I thought that ceramic was for flatware and vases. Besides looking super slick, this knife is strong, made from zirconium oxide (a substance somewhere in between steel and diamonds).
As you can see there is no metal to speak of so no rust will ever take hold of this glorious cutting utensil.
After dicing up some onions in preparation for dinner, I attacked these apples head on…and I won!
Like what you see? Would you like one for free? (I’m feeling very Dr Seuss today) Well, Shenzhen is going to give one lucky reader their very own sexy white 6″ Ceramic Chef’s Knife valued at $34.99!
Enter below! (Giveaway open only to those living the US)
