It's a piece of cake to bake a pretty cake...

So, just when I decided to go on a major health kick -- thanks to certain T.V shows like "Bulging Brides" and "You are what you eat" --  the internet decided to torture me with delicious baked good pictures.

Ok, it's my fault too. I've been searching for food and dessert ideas for upcoming birthdays. May is a mega birthday month around here, with my birthday, fiancĂ©'s birthday, and at least five others. This is going to mean a lot of baking!

First off, I have to make these Cupcake Burgers. I'm not sure who the lucky recipient will be yet, but they look amazing. Word of warning: this site (bakerella) is amazing and definitely "food porn" worthy, so dieters beware.

Full recipe here. And all you need for the "burgers" is cupcake mix, brownie mix and icing.

Also, how amazing are her Wii cupcakes? I am a huge advocate for the Wii. Wii Fit is a wonderful way to burn off a few calories a day in the comfort of home. I don't substitute the Wii for regular exercise, but the games are really fun and a few more minutes of exercise each day doesn't hurt either.

Bakerella, you are a cupcake genius!

And these cupcake recipes by mingmakescupcakes look incredible, like Coffee Chocolate Cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream Frosting and Banana Cupcakes with Maple Brown Butter Frosting. Will this sweet tooth torture ever stop?

And lastly, apparently there is a right way to eat a cupcake, thanks to buzzfeed. This is important life skill, so take note of the steps here. The end result should look like this:

I better start baking soon! I have a lot of work and a lot of "tasting" to do.
