Crumbs

Crumbs Bake Shop abruptly closed its doors on Monday, but all hope is not lost. What’s being billed as the last cupcake from Crumbs is currently up for auction on eBay.

This cupcake was purchased at the Crumbs Bake Shop on 42nd Street. Little did Likeable Media know it would be the last “Birthday Cupcake” we ever purchased. Now we’d like to pass on the joy to you! We are going to freeze it to make sure it doesn’t go stale. But best bet is to use the BUY IT NOW option.

The cupcake already has bids, so it’s going to sell for at least several hundred dollars! Hey, in an age when a potato salad kickstarter can raise over $50,000, a cupcake going for hundreds should be no surprise.

bear

A kid’s birthday party in Juneau, Alaska, went from normal to bizarre and scary recently. A young black bear fell through a skylight window during the gathering. From the CBC:

The home owners, Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill, told the Juneau Empire the bear landed in their living room.

“I was literally in the room, and I heard this cracking,” Merrill told the paper, describing the sound of the skylight’s plexiglass creaking under the bear. “And the next thing you know, there’s this bear that, I mean, literally, fell right from (the skylight). It was like one metre away from me.”

Merrill told the paper he fled into an adjoining room and closed the door behind him, and Bishop said the animal feasted on her infant son’s birthday cupcakes.

Bishop told the paper that she opened a door from the living room that led to the backyard and that the couple yelled at the animal until it casually walked out of their residence.

The animal didn’t harm any humans, but officials believed it could have been the same bear that entered another home in the same area. Sadly, they “destroyed” it to be on the safe side.

edible wafer cases

Allow me to introduce you to something amazing. Dr. Oetker’s Edible Wafer Cases. Yep, edible cupcake wrappers. Not just that — they’re bake stable, so you don’t even need to use a cupcake tray. You can just put the batter in the wrapper and cook them up on a baking sheet.

It’s a small thing, but it feels like a huge step forward for humanity.

I mean, think about how much cake you lose to the wrapper. Not to mention, no more eating the paper because you were nomming to fast. I’m sure you’ve never done that…

They come in a pack of six. Each pack contains three pink and three blue Edible Wafer Cases. They’re also gluten free and vegan and, did I mention, edible?

teen wolf cake

Ant Roman over at Nerdache Cakes loves MTV’s Teen Wolf. Like a lot. Enough that she created a cupcake flavor called Wolfsbane along with the epic creation pictured here.

The cake has 10 edible fondant-chocolate figures, is based on art by GuzuSuru, and took 4 days to complete.

Plus, tiny LaCrosse gear FTW!

There are more pictures of this badass cake after the break.

doritos cupcakes

While we’ve seen Mountain Dew cupcakes before, the fact that Nerdy Nummies host Rosanna Pansino added Doritos to the recipe and created a video for you to follow took things up a notch. We can’t decide if this is disgusting or amazing, but it is definitely a treat that gamers can appreciate.

Check out the video and a list of ingredients after the break.

I don’t know anything about Bravest Warriors, but I know Catbug is the definition of adorable. When YouTube channel Cartoon Hangover celebrated their first birthday, they decided to it with Catbug. They ordered the sweet cupcakes from the talented Nerdache Cakes and she sculpted the the Catbug toppers with different expressions. I want them to all be toys!

vader cupcake

Everyone says the Dark side has cookies, but I think they have cupcakes too and Disney has whipped up a batch of special Darth Vader treats for Star Wars Weekends. The event kicks off this Friday, and a Darth Vader cupcake will be available for all to enjoy. But, what happens if Vader is left alone in the pastry display case overnight? As you’ll see in the video after the break, he falls to the Dark Side and wrecks everything.
