Sweet Stuff: Cool Cake Finds from Cakespy

Hipster pastries waiting for the L Train
Some say that the hours between 9 and 5 on the weekdays are for dedicating yourself to your career. Hours between which one ought to tirelessly performs tasks, answer inquiries with a smile, and work toward that "life's purpose".

However, there are others who call these hours "prime time for scouting cool stuff on the internet"--and man, have we spied some cool stuff lately!

The first find, thanks to Cake Gumshoe Kimberly, is the newly released Batter Finger by Fred. Fred is a company we frequently look to for inspiration and cool products--and this is no exception. A functional spatula, it makes a clever play on how we're all really scraping the bowl clean (you know, when nobody's looking)--but provides a safe alternative to using your fingers, you heathen, you. Don't miss their heart-shaped measuring spoons either! Batter Finger, $7.99;

The second thing we're lusting after this week is the cheeky, punky yet still sugar-sweet pendants by Stoopidgerl. We first came across her work through her flickr page, and have become obsessed with her creations: rendered with real sugar and candy, they're finished with resin that makes them look positively candy-coated. And this brand of sweetness won't leave you with a sugar hangover later. Left, Sugar Skull Pendant, $20; available online.


The third one is so hot it's not even in stores yet--adorable cupcake sculptures by Bonnie B Pottery! Bonnie, a talented artist who has also worked as a professional baker, has baked up batches of these tiny rattle / sculptures which we hope will soon be surfacing on her Etsy store. Made with tiny clay balls inside, they make the happiest little sound when you shake them. Keep them in your pocket as a sweet talisman, or place it on a shelf or windowsill as an objet d'art; ours always makes us smile. Available by special order; contact Bonnie via bonniebpottery.etsy.com.

This one may be old news for savvy Seattleites, but hold tight, sweetsters across the nation: back by popular demand, Cupcake Royale has relaunched their beloved "Legalize Frostitution" tee-- we love the new heather grey-and-pink color combination! Better still, they're done on supersoft American Apparel tees. And while we could rhapsodize at greater length, perhaps their website says it best: "Sass it up. Sass it up good." $16; available at Cupcake Royale.

I know you must hear this all the time, but you are so darn talented!! I LOVE your artwork. The more you look at them, the more interesting they are. I really laughed out loud when I saw the cupcake listening to his Ipod. That face of pure bliss! It got me wondering what he was listening to...the seventies group, Bread, perhaps? Or the 80s hit, "Pour some sugar on me?" Hmmm...

You crack me up!!
