I think it's Martha Stewart. My mother keeps the Food channel on 24/7. When I was home for the holidays, I saw Martha Stewart make Christmas Tree Shaped Cupcakes. She used Ice Cream Sugar Cones as the mold, poured the cake batter in, got a perfectly cone/tree-shaped cupcake. Then she removed the cupcake from the cone and decorated the Christmas Tree Cupcake with a star-tipped pastry bag filled with green frosting.
I'm not sure how they tasted, but if it was Martha, I'm sure they were excellent, and the novelty of the decoration was amazing.
If you're looking for a great cupcake idea for adults, find a creative way to shape them like that and use your favorite rum cake recipe. I don't see how you can go wrong.
I think Madhatters in Las Vegas has the best Cupcakes. They let you custmize them by choosing the cake, filling and frosting. They have something like 900 different combinations and you can always go with something from their favorites. www.madaboutcupcakes.com

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.
At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
