I knew it!
I must pick these up when we're in the States - I'm accident prone and forever injuring myself so I might as well look cute when I do!
You can also buy them online here at Archie McPhee's.
I shall definitely be heading over to Lola's at Selfridges to buy a couple of these, they not only look fantastic but are for a great cause.

Today's inauguration of Obama as the US President was the perfect excuse for my first cupcake of 2009 so I decided to break my cupcake fast at Hummingbird Bakery in South Kensington.
As well as two special inauguration cupcakes (vanilla with vanilla frosting), I got a red velvet and today's special flavour, green tea for us to share!
The cupcakes were all really nice, the red velvet my favourite as usual (Hummingbird make one of the best red velvets!). The green tea was tasty - although I felt the cake was a bit dry, the frosting was really yummy! I'm sure the health properties of the green tea cupcake evened out any calories/fat in the other ones as green tea is full of healthy stuff allegedly!

Then I could get these fabulous wellies...perfect for the monsoon type bloody weather we're having at the moment!

Barack Obama will officially become the 44th president of the United States.
LOLA's scrumptious cupcakes are baked fresh every day and make the perfect gift for clients, friends and family in the exciting run up to Obama's Inauguration on Jan. 20, 2009.
Each cupcake is hand iced in red, white and blue icing and matching sprinkles. They will also have the USA flag and an image of Obama.
Available in any selection of LOLA’s flavours, your order is hand delivered with a personal gift note.
I have emailed them to ask if they are available at their concession in Selfridges also.
And of course no cupcake business in the US is complete at the moment without their Obama cupcakes!

So finally America will have their new president next week and lots of places are doing inauguration cupcakes. Alpha Mom shows you how to make your own Obama Cupcakes toppers for your inauguration party!
The blue frosting looks AWESOME
Another place I may have to add to the New York Cupcake Tour list is Kyotofu - their chocolate souffle cupcake has been voted the best in New York by New York Magazine!
I think I can hear Manny drooling as he spots this picture!
You can order the cupcakes on line for your valentine as well :)
I like the sound of their yuza vanilla cupcake as well but it looks more like a muffin to me as its unfrosted!
These moist, light cupcakes are made with yuzu, a Japanese winter citrus fruit, and Tahitian vanilla. Recommended for sweets lovers looking for a lighter take on the usual cupcake.
Their cakes look absolutely stunning though - I hope they taste as good as they look!

With claps and squeals of delight, it was on a recent shopping trip that me and my friend stumbled upon this treasure trove of a bakery just off Covent Garden. More twee than a Disney movie, Primrose Bakery is an upscale cake haven suitable for kids, but really catering for grown-ups of the female variety. Help yourself to a (quite amazing) cappuccino and pick from an array of fine and divine cupcakes topped with sweet halos of icing. With a minimal number of tables, I imagine this place is chocca at the weekend (and for good reason too), but should you be so lucky to bag a space, take the time to enjoy this cute little sweetspot with your best female friends, reading coffee table magazines and people watching from the big window. With five-star cupcakes, this is the fine dining of floured goods
The pics are of some lovely cupcakes we enjoyed at Christmas from Primrose!! I fully agree with Le Cool, the cafe is cute as a button but very small - I've managed to bag a seat twice and am always happy to have grabbed one!
