This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a long time. It started with the thought I had one day at Joann after I saw this:
Granted, this isn’t some sort of eureka moment; people love cupcakes. Cupcakes are huge. Crafters are people, thus, crafters love cupcakes.
Or something like that.
So I started digging around online to see if I could find more cupcake-crafting connections. Lord knows I love to make cupcakes, and I’m definitely a crafter:
Valentine cupcakes with handmade toppers
Patriotic cupcakes for the Fourth, with Martha Stewart toppers
So here’s what the Interwebs turned up (just a samplin’):
- marimekko cupcakes on CRAFT
- The Etsy Flickr pool has more than 1,000 photos tagged with ‘cupcake’
- Craft Gossip has an Edible Crafts section
And then there’s the whole other idea that cupcakes are the “official” snack of crafters:

And then some some misc. stuff:

- The Cupcake Girls. Crafters with a unique focus. Need I say more?
So, perhaps the fun of coming up with unique designs and delicious recipes isn’t so surprising after all for us crafters.
Man, now I really want a cupcake…
