Ceiling Fan Cupcake

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

WARNING: THIS POST WILL MAKE YOU WANT A CUPCAKE REALLY, REALLY, REALLY BAD. (Trust me I speak from experience)

The other day when doing research for a future blog post I came across a pleasant surprise. A cupcake decorated as a CEILING FAN! I’ve never seen that before. If you know me the only thing that would be better is a cupcake decorated as a shoe.

I stumbled upon Cupcakes Take the Cake blog featuring a ceiling fan cupcake. The cupcakes were made by CleverCupcakes for a little boy with a fascination with ceiling fans. How cute is that.  Everything on the chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting is edible.

Ceiling fans are such a big part of my day to day life that is was nice to see them in a different form. Especially one that is sweet and delicious.

So do you want a cupcake now? I know I do.
