Cupcakes For Haiti

Pin It!

We’ll get to that in a minute.  But first:

America’s Funniest Home Videos Google Searches

Ok, so nothing will ever top “Sarah Palin is a Pumpkin.”

But some of these come close.  Especially due to the fact that “chocolate-covered” is in the title, I get a ton of crazy searches every day.  And after yesterday’s post, with all the funny 80s references, I can only imagine that the searches will get even weirder!

(My Handsome Naked Men post doesn’t help matters.)

Below are some of my favorites:

  1. Hot people making babies
  2. noises coming out of microwave
  3. how to tell if your a muggle
  4. i wish chocolate had no calories
  5. ugly chocolate sex photos
  6. 57 year old naked men
  7. fetch your own damn slippers
  8. alicia silverstone thigh
  9. porn in yoga pants
  10. chocolate makes me get ulcers
  11. beautiful knees
  12. my banana is really big

Then there are about a bazillion for chocolate-covered bacon, chocolate-covered peppers, chocolate-covered hot girls, chocolate-covered bumblebees…

And now for something not so funny:

Remember the earthquake in Haiti?  Remember how it was all over the media, with celebrity telethons and commercials asking for help?  Well, a huge problem with the media is that it only covers things that are newsworthy.  Right after the earthquake, Haiti = newsworthy.  Now?  It’s old hat.  But guess what: Old hats need attention too!!  So please don’t forget about the people in Haiti who are trying desperately to rebuild their lives.

Last week, at the high school where my mom teaches, they held a bake sale to raise funds for the earthquake.  I’ve never met a bake sale I didn’t like, so of course I was happy to take a break from homework to whip up 24 vegan cupcakes for the cause.  Apparently, they were all gone in ten minutes flat.  I don’t know if that means I’m a good cook or just that high school kids (boys especially) will eat anything as long as it’s covered in sugar ;).

    OMG those searches are great. I’m sure we all get some crazy ones. I like ‘hot people making babies’ LOL!! And fudge baby milkshake? That is brilliant!

  2. Erin says:

    I love seeing the crazy search results that turn up at my site — people must be so surprised when they realize they’re getting healthy living blogs. 😀

  3. candice says:

    Yes, I do worry about the mental health of our race. 😕 Holy bejeebus. Those are some crazy keywords! 😯

    Those cupcakes are absolutely beautiful! My favorite is the one with purple frosting. :] They’re all sparkly, too—no wonder they were gone so quickly! And yes, I can attest. My friends will eat basically any kind of sweet, no matter how *mediocre* it tastes. 😕 Poptarts to them are a lifeline…

  4. Jessica says:

    Hahaha, I worry about people’s sanity ALL the time (especially mine, lol!!)

    Gorgeous cupcakers – seriously! I would have totally bought one or three! :)

    I need to try that milkshake! I just made a new variation of banana butter where I used Artisana cacao coconut butter instead of pb/ab…loved it!! I don’t think you know how addicted I am. I’ll be posting a bunch of my pics soon :)

  5. maggie says:

    Ok seriously make me cupcakes and I’ll send you over some fudge baby shakes…although I think the shipping box might leak… :)

    Love you,

  6. I’m into Vegan Vednesday today!

    I needed the alliteration- and so far- I’m fully participating- oats for brekkie- safe! haha

    Happy Hump Day!

  7. Michal says:

    Hehe those searches made me laugh. Your cupcakes look so yummy! I have been on a cupcake kick lately since ive boughten VCTOTW. I really want to try that milkshake – fidge babies through a straw? Um yes please! :)

  8. Eliza says:

    i agree maggie is AMAZING, and that fudge baby milk shake sounds and looks SO good, i want to try that asap! love the idea!


  9. eaternotarunner says:

    LOVE the searches, hilarious.

  10. LOL! “how to tell if you’re a muggle” is my favorite

  11. *Andrea* says:

    your cupcakes look better than the ones at magnolias/crumbs!!! i adore cupcakes and really want to lick the screen haha.

    those lines are so funny. seriously though, who searches ‘ugly chocolate sex photos’ or ‘porn in yoga pants’ LOL. there are definitely freaks on the internet

  12. Hilarious searches! Better luck on your next fudge baby milkshake attempt.

  13. those cupcakes are so beautiful!! and i love baking for such a great cause!

  14. The Brunette says:

    Who knew your blog was so sexual!!!

  15. LOL! I love this! Wow, 57 year old naked men is a very specific search. Not 56, not 58, exactly 57! So weird! 😀

    I should do this on my next post too, it’s too funny. Some of my weird searches are “do kitchen carts look funny”, “who should ganache look like?”, “peeping Tom tickled”, and my latest funny search… *takes deep breath*… “sweetened condensed milk, butter and cocoa powder shredded chicken and spices, enclosed in wheat flour”. Whoa! That’s a mouthful… of something very weird.

  16. I LOVE your Google search posts! Mine are never that funny. I really wanna know who was searching for ugly chocolate sex photos? Or naked 57-year-old men? Jeez…

  17. HAHA that list was too funny!

    “fetch your own damn slippers”

  18. Those cuppy cakes are really cute, I bet they were the first to go. I hope people aren’t forgetting about Haiti.

    Okay you, that shake looks very tasty.

  19. SamWB says:

    I’ll pass on the milkshake lol… not my bag. But I made fudge babies for the first time today and I’m addicted! You are a genius!

    xx Sam xx

  20. true story: at least HALF of my searches involve some variation of “naked troll doll.” only ONCE did i post a picture of my troll halloween costume (and i wasn’t naked haha), but apparently the internet wants an encore…

  21. tabitha says:

    your cupcakes are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!
    i’m always so jealous

  22. Roselie says:

    oh those cupcakes are mouthwatering…

  23. Abby says:

    Aw Katie these are beautiful.. you are so talented. My school is still collecting items to send down… its soo important to remember they are still suffering and struggling to rebuild their lives which will take years and years (unfortunately its no longer on the news so they are forgotten)..

    Have a wonderful Wednesday, hun 😉

  24. caronae says:

    Your cupcakes are absolutely gorgeous! Do you have any decorating tips?

    MY favorite search is “how to tell if you’re a muggle”. Lol, do you talk about harry potter a lot? Chocolate covered harry potter, perhaps? Now THAT sounds like a porn movie.

  25. So, I officially decided fuge baby juice is the best idea ever. Ahhhh! How creative! I want a vita to make carrot cake fudge baby juice. hmm, I wonder how that would be?

    Your searches are hilarious!!! haha


  26. Stef @ moretolifethanlettuce says:

    #6 is my fave search haha! so great that your mom’s school is continuing to fundraise for the haiti earthquake relief effort. you’re right, when it’s splashed all over the headlines it gets the attention it deserves, but then it becomes a backburner issue and people stop contributing

  27. Jenny says:

    oh girl I never considered the dirty web searches the probably lead you to your site. I’ve gotten some crazy ones as well.. apparently peanut butter is pretty kinky.

  28. Jennifer says:

    I get all sorts of scary searches… but none are as funny as yours. Mostly mine are drug references. Thats what you get I guess when you have a blog about nature.
    I can’t tell you how many people are trying to find out how to grow their own weed!

  29. Monica says:

    Those searches! Although some of the things I type in to google are pretty special sometimes haha. My current search in my google toolbar is “how to do a snookie poof” so I guess I don’t really have room to judge!

    Mmmmm fudge baby smoothie sounds de-lish. I’ve tried adding dates to my smoothies a few times too…only to end up with smoothie-flavored dates at the bottom of the glass, which is cool if you’re into that sort of thing!


  30. Katie says:

    Gah, those searches are great! I get a lot that have “I want” in them…which can be pretty funny sometimes. That milkshake looks yumalicious.

  31. Jessie says:

    “My banana is really big” … lol!

    Good for you for making cupcakes for Haiti! Gorgeous colors. I especially love that green-blue frosting.

  32. Veggiesmack says:

    Those cupcakes are gorgeous! Nom!

    And since you mentioned Haiti, there is going to be a Haiti benefit concert in Fort Worth, TX March 27:

  33. McKella says:

    I just found your blog last week, and I just wanted to tell you how awesome I think you are! You’re recipes are amazing (I’m noshing on some fudge babies I just made…Goodness glaciers, they’re delicious). I also like that you take care of your body and do what makes you feel healthy despite jerky people telling you you’re too skinny, anorexic, whatever. It’s important to do what’s right for your body, no matter what shape it is.
    Also, for the past few weeks, I’ve toyed with the idea of going vegan and I’ve drastically cut my intake of animal products. You’re blog gets me excited about eating vegan, and I feel so much better when I eat a healthy, plant-based diet.
    Thanks for the inspiration, and keep the chocolate covered awesomeness coming!

  34. Cupcakes looks amazing! Yum!!! Love bake sales!!

  35. your cupcakes are beautiful! Great job decorating those! I need you to come over and gimme some tips :)

  36. GORGEOUS cupcakes and hooray for raising money for a good cause! How in the world do you make those beautiful thick ribbons of icing? I love how they pile up like that, so gorgeous! I’ll take a dozen please!

  37. Kate says:

    Fudge Baby Milkshake looks delicious! I think I might skip the cashews & try coconut milk, though.

  38. OMG, the cupcakes!!! They looked fantastic…that’s why they were gone in 10 minutes flat!!!

  39. If you use a Vitamix, you can turn that milkshake into a delicious, heavenly, frothy, silky-smooth, thick and creamy, liquid-Fudge Baby delight!
