We’ve talked about aphrodisiacs before but this is next level. More
Once upon a time, Hostess Twinkies and other snacks became an endangered species overnight because people decided not to keep eating such health hazards as often, thus leading the company into bankruptcy. Whence the news traveled around the hills and yonder, everybody freaked out, went to ye olde 711 and bought out all the shelves in all the realms. More
On the heels of a new study that found people on this planet are 34 billion pounds overweight with Americans accounting for more than one-third of those pounds (despite the fact that we only account for 5% of the world’s population), Jimmy Kimmel has the hilarious answer as to why our nation is so fat.

Looking for a way to procrastinate on costume shopping? Plan your Halloween baking. It’s a lot more fun, and you won’t have to deal with the crowds at Ricky’s. We found eight vegan treats that will spook your guests, dairy-free. More
I must confess: This week’s “Healthy Baking” recipe is not so healthy. My Lemony Valentine’s Day Cupcakes contain all the usual suspects: sugar, flour, bugger, eggs, and even cream cheese. Why? I firmly believe that if you, like me, are making and eating baked goods on a weekly basis, you’d better learn how to clean up some of your recipes and replace processed sugars, flours, and fats with healthier, whole grain ingredients, as a favor to your health and the health of everyone who gets to partake in your cake. But there are those (rare) special occasions when I think it’s okay to indulge; sticking a little sugar in your bod once in a blue moon won’t kill you, and knowing how to savor and enjoy it when you do have it probably has some kind of health benefit, according to some doctor, backed by some study, somewhere.
So on Valentine’s Day, I’m eating one of these cupcakes. They’re not vegan, sugar-free, or raw; nor are they excessively heavy. They taste great and you can decorate them any way you please; they’re a huge improvement over oily, impersonal grocery store cupcakes and they won’t take you much longer to procure. More
You slaved over a hot oven for hours, and have a sore back from individually decorating two dozen pumpkin cupcakes. Now they’re sitting in a not-so-festive cardboard box on your counter, and you’re wondering why you never invested in an elegant stand to give your handiwork a little more oomph. We’ve got a solution for you: The Wilton cupcake stand. While it’s perfect for showing off your pumpkin-cakes, it’s not Halloween specific, so you can use it on any (or no) occasion.
Are those cupcakes giving us the finger? Cupcakes don’t have to be perfectly decorated for us to want to eat them, but the variety above, featured on Cake Wrecks, have us more confused than spooked for Halloween. The “scary” objects poking out their cupcakes’ kelly green frosting look more like an obscene hand gesture than a dismembered witch extremity. Boo? More
Cupcakes have been the icing on the cake of the dessert world for a while now. They have the potential to be cute, tasty, and intricately decorated. (Like these crazy Halloween cupcake toppers that you can buy directly from us.) But on Halloween, cupcakes can and should be creepy as hell. Bring on the blood, brains, and boogers — we’re pretty sure you could stick anything unappealing on a cupcake and we’d still eat it. And while we don’t think we have the patience (or hand-eye coordination) to bake all of them before October 31, you should try mixing up these 10 Halloween cupcake recipes. And then mail the results to the Blisstree offices. More
Flag cakes, cobblers, and pies are 4th of July staples, whether you’re headed to a potluck, picnic, BBQ, or just watching the fireworks and fireflies in your own backyard. (For party-planning help, check out Eco-Friendly 4th of July: 10 Patriotic … More
We’re hoping that title didn’t blow the surprise. If you know anything about Cupcake Wars, a baking competition show on Food Network, you know there’s a vegan chef in residence. And if you know anything about us, you know we’re … More
While I’m the first to admit that I’m not into sweets, I will admit that I’m a fan of cupcakes. No, I won’t eat a six-pack and I dread the girlfriend group trips to New York City’s Magnolia Bakery. But … More
“Die Neuen Cupcakes. Taste it. Love it.” McDonald’s is capitalizing on New York’s cupcake craze – in Germany, according to New York Magazine. The cupcakes are all named after different Big Apple nabes (we think the East Village flavor look tastiest), but for cupcakes, there’s really no place like home.
At Blisstree, we’ve got no beef with hard-core trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels from NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” but we just want to clarify: We are not them. Sure, Blisstree wants to challenge and support you every day, so … More
