You Can't Put...

...cupcakes in Ravelry!

I'm pretty sure they don't have a "Baked Goods FO" section.

Lucky for you, you don't have to belong to any quasi-exclusive club to see good cupcake porn.

Ok, it's not the best cupcake porn because like yarn, cupcakes photograph best in the natural daylight.


Boston cream cupcakes--yellow cake with a chocolate ganache "frosting" and a:


Creamy vanilla pudding filling!

You know maybe the Ravelry folks are on to something--you could make a website for all types of hobbies/pastimes.

It could have a section where you photograph all of your muffin tins, cookie sheets, mixing bowls, spatulas, etc.

You could have a queue where you have all the recipes you would like to try.

There would be a section to display and rank your finished recipes by satisfaction level.

You would also be able to search out cooks that like to make the same things as you by category--baking, barbecue, French cuisine, etc (Does Ravelry have a way to search for other knitters that like the same things as you? i.e. Fair Isle or lace?)

Of course the works-in-progress section might be kind of lacking.

Huh, that would certainly be something to chew on.

OMG. Those look so sinfully good. You might be onto something here Bezzie. I think though, that the WIP section may have to support video. Wouldn't that be something? I know if someone recorded me trying to cook/bake that it would be quite comical!

Mmm those cupcakes look so yummy. Ravelry does this thing where it shows you people that have knit the same patterns as you which is kind of cool.

Ok, it's only 6:13am and I want those cupcakes! And truly, that's an awesome idea for a website community thing, flat out excellent. Have you ever read this blog, I forgot what it's called.... hang on...
Ok! Brownie Points. BrowniePointsBlog dot com. I bet THOSE people would LOVE your idea. I'd totally join. Or I'd try to... You could have a vegan section, kosher, raw, veggies, steak, bacon, dessert, chocolate, steak, chocolate, sweet potatoes... Seriously, Bez, this is an excellent idea!

The PATH goes to your house, yes? Or somewhere near it? I'll be there in a few. OMG, they look so yummy. Where'd you get the recipe?

I'd join that one too! But probably wouldn't get invited until after everyone else did. And then I could be on my computer 24/7 and complete the transformation to having no life whatsoever.

So you actually have to have an invite to this Ravlery? How do they decide if your worthy?? Seems kinda

I have Garth and Wayne in my head on their knees bowing and chanting we're not worthy LOL

Thank you for the cupcake porn!! Love it!!

xoxo from a girl still waiting for her ravelry invite and contemplating what a website with lots of FOs cupcakes would do to her diet :)

Recipe??? They look great!

At my old work, practically everyone baked, and most days, you could find baked goods if you looked around a bit. At my new work, no one but me bakes. However, I'm going to try to make up for that lack, even though it means carrying pans of baked goods on the bus!!!

It's Friday. I'm fasting. You're putting up pictures of cupcakes. That's just so wrong!

The cooking ravelry would be awesome!
I finally got my Ravelry invite and I have to admit that I was super skeptical, but it's really kind of nice.
