A new dessert cafe named the Mallow Bar is now open in Rosedale. The specialty of the house is the Mallow Crunchie. Billed as the "country's first crispy treat cafe," the Mallow Bar is from Nikki Lewis, a familiar face at Baltimore-area farmers markets, who makes her version of the nostalgic Rice Krispies Treat, the Mallow Crunchie, from scratch and tops them with things like dark Belgian chocolate and her own homemade caramel. Flavors include Original Crunch, Dipped Crunch, Caramallow Crunch, Toffee Nut Crunch and Trail Crunch.

Aaron Walker's T-shirt caught singer-songwriter Norah Jones' attention in Towson on Thursday morning. It reads, "Keep calm have a cupcake. " So she did just that, according to Christine Richardson, owner of the Iced Gems cupcake truck and Reisterstown bakery of the same name. The above photo of the nine-time Grammy winner and Walker was taken after her purchase. Jones - who was in town for a "Live Lunch" performance at WTMD's studio before her group, Puss N Boots, plays the Ottobar tonight - ordered a dozen cupcakes, Richardson said, and she told Walker her favorite was the Coconut Dream cupcake.

Martha Daniels of Wake Forest, N.C., was looking for a cupcake recipe called Cocoa-Pink Cuplets. She thought that the recipe might have appeared in a Pillsbury Bake-Off cookbook many years ago. She said these unfrosted cupcakes were simple but delicious. Beryl Benda of Baltimore sent in a recipe she had in her collection for Cocoa-Pink Cuplets taken from a Pillsbury Bake-Off cookbook. It says that the recipe, by Mrs. Robert Hoefer of Brookfield, Wis., for Cocoa-Pink Cuplets was the senior winner in the Pillsbury's 10th Grand National Recipe and Baking Contest.

Could Crumbs cupcakes be saved by Dippin' Dots? Just days after the financially troubled Crumbs Bake Shops Inc. closed all 48 stores, including three at malls in the Baltimore area, the New York specialty chain stands to be acquired as part of a voluntary bankruptcy. And some of the shops, known for their oversized, gourmet cupcakes, could re-open.

During the holiday season, many of us rediscover the pleasure of casual entertaining -- potluck dinners, open-house celebrations, buffet dinners and progressive parties that begin at one house and continue in others. Often friends or relatives stop by for spur-of-the-moment get-togethers.For these occasions a perfect treat to have on hand is homemade cupcakes. Of course, when I say cupcakes I don't mean those tasteless cakes with sugary bright blue frosting showered with colored sprinkles.

On one cupcake, a bunny's back feet, ample behind and fluffy tail are all that can be glimpsed of the creature as it plunges down a rabbit hole. Speckled robins' eggs and jelly beans sit atop knolls of bright green grass on other cupcakes, and a neon-colored marshmallow chick tops a fourth variety. Created on mounds of butter cream frosting with a signature swirl, they are among the Easter offerings at Kupcakes & Co., an Elkridge bakery that produces 10,000 cupcakes a week. Ninety specialty flavors such as Pancakes and Bacon, Strawberries and Champagne, and Salted Caramel rotate on the bakery's daily flavor calendar.

Linda Hurd of Baltimore was looking for a recipe for Wellesley Fudge Cupcakes similar to the ones sold at the Hutzler's department store restaurant in Baltimore many years ago. While I did not receive any recipes for the fudge cupcakes Hurd was looking for, I did receive a number of recipes for the classic Wellesley fudge cake, said to have been served in the tearoom at Wellesley College in Massachusetts. The recipe that Elaine Smith of Keizer, Ore., sent in was taken from a Wellesley College alumnae publication and was easily adapted to make cupcakes.

I can't imagine how a cupcake could be the least bit healthy. Especially if it actually tastes good. But television talk show host Dr. Oz seems to think so. He likes this recipe for vanilla cupcakes with a raspberry filling and rich chocoloate topping. He borrowed it from Vincent Buzzetta, The Cake Artist INC. The cupcakes are made with coconut palm sugar, a sweetener that doesn't cause the same blood sugar spikes as regular sugar, Dr. Oz says on his website.  Coconut palm is the same amount of calories, but  itprovides a slow energy release - which can curb your appetite and help you lose weight.

What it is: A sweet 4-in-1 app that's a treat to play. Kids can bake, decorate and “eat” cupcakes, whoopie pies, mini cupcakes and cake pops from scratch or from a box. Your little pastry chef can choose from more than 30 cupcake flavors, 70 different types of frosting and 100 different types of candy and nut toppings. The interface is intuitive enough for a toddler, but could easily keep a tween in the “kitchen” for quite a while, too. Why it's fun: This app replicates the entire baking process, so kids don't just decorate - they slice the butter, sift the flour and pour in the vanilla, too. After cupcakes come out of the oven and get their one-of-a-kind makeover, complete the presentation by selecting a color-coordinating plate.

Halloween and other holidays used to make me panic because, with young children, I was supposed to turn out clever cupcakes and other treats without a blink. This is why I think so many folks turn to store-bought, because they just don't have a trick (so to speak) up their sleeve for trick-or-treat party food. These cupcakes are as adorable to look at as they are scrumptious to eat. Imagine rich devil's food cake, smeared with butter-cream frosting and topped with a crunchy chocolate treat in the shape of a spider.

The Republicans held their national convention in New York last week without help from Tracy Rice. Although Rice, a thirtysomething who lives in Locust Point, helped organize the 1996 and 2000 GOP conventions, this year she had more important things to do. She was baking cupcakes. Rice, along with Shannon Mitchell of White Hall, recently opened the Baltimore Cupcake Co., occupying a pink building on Fort Avenue and specializing in cupcakes, cookies, decorated cakes and brownies. For 13 years, Rice worked for the Republican Party, raising money for various groups and events.
