If you look around the web, almost all of the Valentine’s party ware is romantic, frilly and for girls. Naturally, as we’re about all things boy party related, we wanted to do something that would appeal to your little man. This is perhaps the most unromantic Valentines cupcake ever. And it took the only male designer of the Spaceships and Laser Beams collective to bring it to life.
Andrew, who also designed our Monster Fest, Bayou and Football Collections, took a creative look at Valentines Day from a little boy’s perspective: Ewww. Girls. Ewwww. Kissing. Ewwww. From far away, the wrapper looks as though it’s turquoise with red hearts. But up close you realize those aren’t hearts at all – they’re germs and cooties. Awesome. They’re available in our Etsy shop for $3.
I hope it’s not to braggy to say that I love these cupcakes. Because I totally do. And I think Andrew did a fantastic job. Visit kolbisneat.com to check out more of his work. Also, the cupcakes themselves were made by The Cake Box. If you’re in the area, I can’t recommend them enough.
