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!

a day in the life...i love it.

This is beyond adorable. Kudos to Bakerella for the lil cuppie creations and I LOVE all the trouble they've gotten in. My favorite, however, is the one who hates skinny chicks-- way to show the curvy girl love.

Mandy: Yup, fancy that--you went to HS with Mr. Cakespy!!

Kyla: They were packed in boxes with the truffles close together so they didn't shift, with tissue paper topping them and keeping them in the box. Then, that inner box had a generous roll of bubble wrap around it and it was all within a bigger box. A lot of packaging but then again shipping foodstuffs is an art!

Jessie, you made my day again, and the cuppie that found Jesus was priceless! I love the expressions. Reminds me a little of Oh No, Mr Bill! I did a similar "photo shoot" with my Willy the Eggplant. At least you got to eat the cuppies. Mr. Willy rotted from the inside out!
BRAVO!
