Academy Awards Cupcakes

Academy Awards Cupcakes

February 2008


I love the Academy Awards. There is something about Oscar glamour that draws me in to this celebration of film and storytelling. My first roommate from California elevated the Oscars from a cute fashion show on TV where they give out statues, to an elegant gathering. These infamous Oscar parties challenged guests to embrace their favorite aspect of Hollywood film viewing. The recommended attire for guests was formal wear, but without the stilettos and dress shoes. Slippers please! The people in LA may have to balance on those heels, but when you curl up to watch a movie at home, it is fluffy slippers all the way. Beyond the glamorous side, and the comfortable side, there is the imaginative aspect of film-viewing. So guests could also opt to come as their favorite movie character, embracing their creative side. A little something for everyone!

To celebrate the occasion this year I made a cupcake with golden yellow batter and Hollywood stars. With a little sugared “glitter” for good measure. You can never have too much glitz in Hollywood!
