What is up WordPress fam?! I am back and I am totally excited for this new post because it is about apothecary! I LOVE making my own stuff. I hope that I don't get bored with doing this because it can be a bit labor intensive at times. The recipe I used can be found … Continue reading Homemade Deodorant
So - eventually, I WILL make a video about this, but I figured that an update was at least due to you all. If you review my introductory video, you will see how I made the toothpaste. There were some unexpected negative side effects (why start with a negative? Well I am being realistic and this … Continue reading Review on Homemade Tooth Paste
SOOOOOO... Creations by Cupcake is back in action post-Christmas, y'all! This year I wanted to make more of a health impact on what I am doing for my health. I get a great sense of gratification when I make things, and I want to translate that into taking care of my body with homemade things. … Continue reading Homemade ToothPaste (Base Powder)

I went grocery shopping today. Grocery shopping is overwhelming unless I plan the outing at at time when volume is down (less crowded stores). When I got home, and thought about prepping for the week... I shut down. When I shut down, it's not good for anyone. Thankfully all of the items I purchased needed to … Continue reading Being Lazy and Motivated at the Same Time…
Ok, before you go and accuse me of being ratchet and obscene.... please understand I am talking about real cake. I only just learned about the cray-cray dirty connotation to 'cake' about a week ago. THANKS RIHANNA FOR RUINING MY BAKING LIFE! I ain't about that bidness! I digress... I was commissioned to make a … Continue reading Gimmie Dat Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake….
OMMMMMGGGGG! I want to make these PRONTO!
Q: In this Interwebs cross-merchandising meme-frenzied world we occupy, what’s the next big thing?
Naturally, we now have Grumpy Cat & Boo Cake Pops. Here’s how to make them yourself, courtesy of Bakerella. (Who has a book out, natch.) (And I know this feels like a “Japan Does It To Us Again” post, but no. You could, however, have a Grumpy Cat Cake Pop with a…Hello Kitty Beer!)
I need some smaller Mason Jars! I haven't always liked peanut butter. I still only like it on some things like apples and the classic PB&J sandwich. A couple of years ago I discovered the natural stir peanut butter when I had some dietary restrictions with sugar and whoa was I hooked! Now, all other … Continue reading Creations by “Cupcake”: Harvest Pistachio Pumpkin Seed Butter
I wanted to try to make sushi rolls for David and I, which proved to be a HUGE fete. Ugh I have never been to more grocery stores in one afternoon in my life. If I had known about the little Asian market that the nice prepared foods manager in Whole Foods directed me to … Continue reading Creations by “Cupcake”: Sushi
(that's not bacon folks, but I wish it was!) I don't really care for traditional spaghetti. I will eat it, but afterward I could go without it for a year or so. This is just me and pasta in general. I like it, but I don't love it. Same goes for rice. Anyway, I made … Continue reading Creations by “Cupcake”: Spaghetti Squash with Vegetables
