Teacup Cupcakes~



Sweet little things~

My daughter recently gave me these adorable little silicone teacup molds..along with the darling Matryoshkas measuring cups and spoons.. we all knew a little blog post would ensue..:)
I used a chocolate cupcake recipe that came all printed up on a very pretty tea towel that will not see the light as a tea towel yet:)Like saving a great dress..or pj:)

But you can use any cupcake recipe you like..


and any icing you like..Mine happened to come out of a tub:) I keep one on hand if I bake with the boys..It seems to be their favorite icing..I can't compete with it~
The silicone molds work very well..even my husband said they are so cute:)

My daughter was having a little girl over..Ava..as a playdate for Max..so I made pirates for the boys and brought a teacup for Ava w/ a magic wand:)

I wish I had brought my camera,as Ava was wearing a cupcake t-shirt..PINK:) 4 yrs old..Cuties all of them..

As I said..you can use any recipe..the molds are oven safe,not the saucers..


It's funny..as I had liked them at Jacqueline's Purple Chocolate Home~..but no one in my family knew that..they know me though:)~And so do sweet blogging friends~

  1. Ma chère Nana,
    C'est de très bonne heure aujourd'hui, que tu as décidé de me mettre l'eau à la bouche avec les merveilleuses photos de tes petits gâteaux au chocolat dans de si aussi jolies tasses !...
    Elles sont vraiment exceptionnelles ces tasses ! Je ne savais pas qu'on déclinait ces petits moules en silicone sous cette forme-là également. C'est vraiment génial.
    Je te fais de gros gros bisous.
