Sweet Surprise: Red Velvet Cuppie Truffles from Bakerella!

Sweet treats from Bakerella!
Today we received a sweet and completely unexpected gift in the mail from our favorite domestic goddess, Bakerella: mouthwatering red velvet cake truffles...decorated to look like our own Cakespy mascot, L'il Cuppie! Seems that Mlle. Bakerella must have enjoyed her Iron Cupcake prize, a custom piece depicting her exciting segment a few months ago on the Martha Stewart Show:

Martha and Bakerella
Because this was certainly a wonderful thank-you to receive! And upon opening the parcel full of cheery red-topped Cuppies, we realized that Bakerella had caught all of the little guy's mischievous expressions. One thing's for certain--the moment we left the kitchen they got up to all sorts of mischief. Let's see what we were up to, shall we?

This little Cuppie made a big mess...
This little Cuppie caused mischief


This little Cuppie learned to draw...
This little Cuppie got creative...

This little Cuppie went for the good stuff...
This little Cuppie has expensive taste

This little Cuppie liked what he saw...
This little Cuppie likes what he sees

This little Cuppie found Jesus...This little Cuppie found Jesus

This little Cuppie met some pigs...
This little Cuppie made new friends...

This little Cuppie saw the Space Needle (but got a little melted by the sun)...
This little Cuppie saw the Space Needle

This little Cuppie does not like skinny chicks...
This little Cuppie does not like skinny chicks

This little Cuppie got worried...and uh-oh, we haven't seen him since.
Sweet treats from Bakerella!

This little Cuppie got greedy...and ended up all alone.
Sweet treats from Bakerella!

OMG the guy with the smooshed-in cheek frosting, painting a big mess...my favourite!

Those are just adorable, I would feel sad to eat them, but I bet their soooo delicious!

September 30 | Unregistered CommenterReeni

What an adorably delicious treat! I just made these and mine are nowhere as cute. My personal favorite is the no skinny chicks cuppie.

I love your drawings! You're in Seattle? Me too! :) I work in Belltown.

Have a good night!

Those are truly just the cutest little cuppies ever! What a perfect marriage between Bakerella's baking magic and your drawing magic! (I see a business partnership in the offing. . . .I'm first in line at your new boutique!) :)

I kept reading this like the rhyme, "This little piggy goes to market..." I don't think I could have had the heart to eat those cute little truffles! I bet they tasted great though!

September 30 | Unregistered CommenterTanya

You are hilarious! I'm so happy that you liked them. I'm just sad that I couldn't be there to play, too!

I love the artist one and the mirror one and the space needle one and the jesus one… wait, I love them all.

They are very mischievous. They should be punished. I say eat them.

September 30 | Unregistered CommenterBakerella

I heart them so much.

September 30 | Unregistered CommenterWendyB

You two are the cutest (I mean you and Bakerella, because of course there are more than two of the adorable cuppies, ahem)!! Can't wait to see what's next.

Reeni: you'd be surprised, it got a lot easier after the first bite :-)

Sharon: I don't know, I saw yours and they looked hella good. HELLA good!

Ricki: Ha! Isn't it like, the funnest war of the thank you's ever!?

Tanya: Yea! That's totally what I was thinking too. Wish you could have seen my face taking the pictures, I kept on laughing.

Bakerella: You're too wonderful! I can't even say how delighted I was, not only with the creations (the expressions are perfect!! PERFECT!) but with the taste as well! Mr. Cakespy wants me to say he gives his official "thumbs up" too...although he had a moment where he said "I can't do it!".

Wendyb: Aren't they the best?!

Bridget: Thanks for finding Cakespy! Hope you enjoy it, it's super sweet!

Nicole: That poor little guy...tables turned on him though...wasn't he tasty.

Puglyfeet: I am so delighted by them! Wish I could share one with Taco. :-)

Elaine: Glad you enjoyed! :-)

JustJenn: Jesus is Cuppie's homeboy!

Diana: Thanks! Glad it brought some sweetness to your day!! ;-)
