Today we are kicking off Cupcake Saturday! Every Saturday we are going to share a new cupcake recipe and design on the blog. We love cupcakes and can't wait to share fun new cupcakes with everyone. Heck, we even went on a cupcake date this week to celebrate the new series.

OMGoodness I think I would win Momma of the Year if these showed up at my Buddie's next birthday party. What a great and easy way to bring in the theme of a party! Love It!
How cute are these Thor cupcakes?? My nephew would love these, and I like the red and dark brown color contrast of these treats. I haven't made cupcakes from scratch in so long, but I would love to soon!

Chris Helmsworth is just gorgeous as Thor isn't he? Your cupcakes turned out fabulously, I really love how you piled the frosting high and the red colour is great to match his cape. I love those little hammers too, I saw a tutorial on how to make them last week and thought they were really cute 🙂
I'm a fan of cupcakes and I think incorporating Marvel Avengers in the formula to make one is creative of you! 🙂 The design is super cute and ideal to serve when hosting children parties. It's so fun to play around with character designs.
Those little hammers are really adorable. I love that you choose the black and red coloring too. It gives it the whole manly feel to it all.
These Thor cupcakes look fantastic! I absolutely love when I can take a movie theme and implement it in so many ways, all the way down to the cupcakes. If only you could have included some ripped abs or long flowing hair in the cupcakes...but I guess hair would be gross. 😉
ok i cnt resist to make them just now and eat them.I have to say that these are very inviting and that cream color in red is awesme.I am going to try them soon.thankx for these marvel avengers cupcakes.
