Techcakes–What could be tastier?

We love technology. We love cupcakes. Two together? We ADORE that. Another devoted OH MY NOM reader showed us this adorably nerdy compilation of geeks and sweets. Honestly, what could be tastier than a frosting iPhone app? Or perhaps a Mario Mushroom? Or if you’re truly old fashioned, how about a simple ‘http’ treat? Check out all of these fantastic creations here. Want us to make some? Let us know by emailing us at and we will try our best to create techcakes!

Champagne-Cupcakes Toy Drive

No matter your religion or preference of holiday celebration, the importance of giving is something we all must value, embrace, and love. Gifting is a sweet treat for all, whether we are the ones giving or receiving. As the holidays approach, many of us are already crafting our lists of things to purchase, create, and package for our loved ones and friends. But too often, we forget those who are neglected during this time of the year.

The Latino Community Fund is holding a Champagne-Cupcakes Toy Drive to provide an opportunity to give a gift to a child who would otherwise go without. For the small price of $25 and of course the wonderful gesture of a wrapped gift, you can attend this charitable event. In exchange, you receive scrumptious cupcakes (nom nom nom), bubbly champagne, a heart-warming evening, and the unparalleled satisfaction of gifting those who need it most.

Toy drive suggestions are:

  • winter coats
  • hats, scarves and gloves
  • underwear and socks
  • new children’s toys, games and books

Click here for more information on the event to be held at the Hyatt at Olive 8 in Downtown Seattle on December 9th, 2009. MARK YOUR CALENDARS and register HERE!

Cupcakes on Post Secret

“When I was five I asked you what the swirls on top of the cupcake said.

You told me it was my name.

Twenty nine years later, I remember this and smile”

How SWEET is this post secret?  I mean I always knew cupcakes were quite delightful and brought smiles year round but I found this very endearing.  Hopefully it will encourage some of you to share YOUR secrets.  Leave a comment with your sweetest cupcake confession!

Cupcakes are more powerful than ever, but can they keep up?

Magnolia Bakery's Cupcakes

We here at Oh My Nom aren’t the first to tell you that the “cupcake craze” is a recent (and delicious) development…You’ve probably noticed just as frequently as we have how popular this dainty desserts have become in the last year or so. From Sprinkles Cupcakes in California, to Magnolia Bakery in New York, shops devoted strictly to the art of cupcaking have appeared all over the U.S., coast to coast.

Are you curious about how the cupcake-takeover got so far, so fast? Are you wondering if this trend will stick? Are you questioning if there are too many cupcakeries to suit the demand for sweets? Then have a listen to this awesome 4 minute bit from NPR’s All Things Considered ,where Guy Raz and Selena Simmons Duffin discuss this “renaissance for cupcakes.”
