1. Cute Cupcake Cake Balls
A few years ago, I had a friendly online fling with popular cake blogger Bakerella. It started when she commissioned me to do it some arts for her, and then she was inspired to make one nice little video for me, and then I did more art for herand then he sent me little truffle cake that looked like my Couple Character. We’ve really stepped up the “no, I love you more” war here! Of all the things I have seen in my life, these bites of red velvet are one of the cutest. Who could resist little cartoon cupcake bites? Recipe here.
2. Rainbow Candy Cake
Go ahead, ask anyone in the world who knows me or knows about me what is the first word they think of when they think of me. There is a more than 90% chance that it is either “sweet” or “unicorn”. I like these associations very much. So it should come as no surprise that this cake is from the confirmed cake genius and fellow pug lover Sprinkle Bakes, which is beyond 100% sweet and would absolutely serve as unicorn food, tops my list of cutest sweets. Featuring rainbow layers, sweet buttercream frosting, and thousands of candy units and sprinkles, this cake is a true masterpiece of magic. Recipe here.
3. Mini Animal Cakes
I’m just warning you now: I’ve seen a thing or two that was alarmingly cute in my day, but these baby cakes take the… well, you know. When I first came across the collection of animal cakes from the Philadelphia bakery Whipped pastry, inspired an epic session of cooing and gasping “omigod so cute.” I think part of what makes them so cute is that they are not over the top, but in their simplicity the designer, Zoe, captures the sweet innocence of childhood. Check out the entire collection, and you’re bound to find it coo-worthy too. Collection here.
4. Unicorn Cupcakes
WWUE? For the uninitiated, this means “what will unicorns eat?”. And the answer is these cupcakes, created by Bakers Royale. Decorated with fluffy buttercream frosting, they’re then adorned with all sorts of magical and unicorn-approved toppings, including golden berries, colorful candy sixlets and magical, mystical marshmallows. I’m sure it tastes like clouds of cotton candy. Recipe here
5. Topiary Cupcakes
As a child, I was obsessed with all things tiny. Even today, dollhouse scale objects never fail to capture my fancy. So, naturally, when I met with cupcakes Erin Bakes with candy coated peeps made to look like a little topiary, I was absolutely delighted. Although they were designed for Easter, I think they provide cuteness for the whole year. Recipe here.
6. Circus Animal Cookie Cake
Is there a single happier commercial snack than circus animal cookies? For starters, these sweet treats are similar to animal crackers, but covered in a white chocolate candy coating and dotted all over with sprinkles. Julianne of Beyond Frosting took the heart and soul of these cookies and translated them into cake form, with absolutely adorable and delicious results. This is what circus animal cookies want to be when they grow up! Recipe here.
7. Cute Pug Cake Pops
If you read my website, it is not difficult to understand that I am a lover of sweets and all things adorable, and that I am a huge fan of Bakerella. But you might not know right away that I’m a proud pug parent. My two pugs, Olive and Porkchop, are basically the loves of my life. These cake pops bring together many of my deepest loves in an easy-to-eat form, and they are so cute. They are all mine! Recipe here.
8. Pineapple cake
Forget SpongeBob Squarepants’ pineapples under the sea; I want to live in a pineapple that looks like this. While my friend Lyndsay at Coco Cake Land made this as a birthday cake for a lucky girl who was four years old, I really like this cake as a full adult. There is something so satisfying about this simple, bright and sunny pineapple cake. It makes me want to smile, and it makes me hungry for cake. It’s a winner! Recipe here.
9. Cupcakes Cupcakes
A few years ago, when my book came out, New York Cupcakes (don’t get me wrong, they are based in the Seattle area, where I live) made fondant cupcakes that they decorated to look like my Cuppie . character Not only do they match the expressions of my cartoon character, but they taste amazing. Full summary here.
10. Hot dog cookies
I have a confession: I love-love-love trompe l’oeil sweets. I find something adorable about salty looking foods that are actually sweet. And one of my favorite creations was definitely these hot dog cookies. They may look like barbecue fare, but they’re actually baked goods! These simple cookies involve just a little food coloring and a clever dough mold, and are guaranteed to please. Recipe here.
