Know a Starbucks fan?

Here’s how to easily decorate cupcakes to look like a cute latte! You could use this trick to decorate store bought cupcakes or bake your favorite cupcake flavor. How yummy would pumpkin spice flavored cupcakes be for these?!

Just top white frosted cupcakes with drizzled caramel or chocolate sauce.  Then add a coffee sleeve and finish with green straw to make an adorable latte looking treat.


Starbucks Latte Decorated Cupcakes

Supplies Needed:

Chocolate Cupcakes with White Frosting (or any desired flavor cupcake with white frosting)
Chocolate Syrup
Plastic Disposable 3 oz. Portion Cups
Starbucks Paper Cardboard Sleeves (Amazon actually sells these OR just re-use ones you have)
Green Straws


  •  Turn plastic portion cup upside down and place cardboard sleeve over cup. (Note: You may have to shorten sleeve and staple back shut if too wide.)
  • Stack cupcake on top of plastic cup to make it appear taller.
  • Drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce over the top.
  • Place shortened green straw on top of cupcake.

These were made by a talented friend of mine for another coffee obsessed friend of ours to celebrate her birthday. She LOVED them and it made her feel so special. I also love this idea for a teacher breakfast, baby or wedding shower, or really to spoil anyone who is a Starbucks fan!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
