VIRTUAL CUPCAKES.........Calorie FREE!!!!

I felt like baking this weekend...
With nobody to bake for I would have ended up eating whatever it was I baked
All By Myself.....
Well......I couldn't do that so I did the next best thing...... I love to bake and to eat Cupcakes.....
The "In" dessert at the present time
I love any kind of cupcake..
I prefer to make mine jumbo size....
Regular size cupcakes don't seem to have the same appeal to me......
Mini ones are cute and you can eat a bunch but
Jumbo Ones Are The Best.....
They just put you in a party mood.....
So without further adieu
My version of the calorie free cupcake......
Now if we can just figure out how to make the computer screen a
Scratch and Sniff............

chocolate cake.....peanut butter icing and chocolate chips


You know Ina must make these.....
Peanut Butter and Jelly!

every kids favorite....
OREO

Orange Cream....
I could do without the orange slice on top....
Maybe a real slice of orange would go good....

Lemon Meringue.....Oh they look heavenly!!

Just in time for Easter.....
Make sure the kids don't try to eat the pipe cleaners...

White cake.....white chocolate sprinkles.....
And Lemon Curd...

Key Lime......a big favorite down here in the South.

Espresso

dark chocolate cherry.....

Too pretty to eat.

A cute idea for a birthday or shower.....

Creamsicle.....

Andes Mint....now that looks fabulous.....
Try to smell the mint....

Like a Big Reece's Peanut Butter Cup....

caramel swirl.

Another cute one for Easter....

Or what about these.....
I have the recipe for these from McCormick........feel free to e-mail me....

Banana!!

It's beginning to be strawberry season......Don't these look good.

And last but not least....
The most creative cupcakes of all time....
Have a great weekend.....
And thank you for letting me bake for you today.....
Fat Free!!

All those look so yummy. Right now I could eat some of those, but would not be able to taste them with this head cold though. The espresso one and the Reese's one were speaking to me.

I've drooled all over my keyboard :)

Linda said...

This virtual cupcake thing didn't work for me, lol, now I want a cupcake really really bad! Those were cute and yummy looking.

Oh yes, designer cupcakes! They all look wonderful; but I'm still having trouble getting use to them replacing a real wedding cake. Guess I'm just too traditional (or old!!) Hope this finds you well. We had several inches of snow yesterday, but the sun is shining today in beautiful Colorado. This is spring to me - snow/sun. Take care, Sally

Eli said...

Thanks for your cakes, AM! They were all delicious. Perfect to finish the evening in front of my computer with a cup of coffee. Fat free sweetness! Have a good week-end. Love Eli

Oh my teeth hurt just thinking about consuming all these calorie free cupcakes:) well thankfully you never said the icing was sugar free:) I will be counting cupcakes tonight instead of sheep. I could not choose just one but would have to take a bakers dozen!

Mmmmmmm mmmmmmmm good - I don't know which one was my favorite. I think I like the chocolate one with the mint.

Good idea - cupcakes without the calories.

Oh Sue... now I'm STARVING!!! I'd pick the chocolate cherry ones;-)

Jojo said...

I don't even like cupcakes and I'm salivating!!!! A wonderful collection of beautiful cupcakes.

Cheri said...

I actually thought I would make some cupcakes today and after reading your post I think that is a "go." They are so darn cute but mine will be plain 'ole plain 'ole cupcakes, I don't think I can wait and try to decorate them. I might make some to take to daughter's at Easter. Those ones with the little baby birds in the nest is adorable for that.

alice said...

One of my favorite subjects! There are a few there I would like to make. The lemon meringue, the oreo, and the espresso look especially wonderful. Great inspiration Sue, thanks! That is the only kind of cupcakes I should be eating right now...virtual :)

These are adorable (and, daw-gone-it, now I want a cupcake!) I would love to make the corn on the cob cupcakes for a summer picnic!

Hi Sue

I used to make those Easter basket cupcakes for my kids when they were small!

I love the idea of putting cupcakes in a flower pot as if they were flowers .. very cute idea!
