Taking Orders for Father's Day and All Your Other Summer Celebrations!

I have plans for very manly cupcake and cookie arrangements in not-so-ordinary containers for all the adored fathers out there. All arrangements are wrapped up and ready to go.

Summer BBQ gatherings, anyone? Order your look-a-like BBQ favorites, including corn-on-the-cob cupcakes! You have to see it to believe it!

Christenings, baby showers, bridal showers--who doesn't love a beautiful confection that doubles as a conversation piece!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there. I love this holiday!
I wanted to make a mock Hostess Cupcake. Basically, I love the swirl on top. I can't tell you the last time I had a Hostess Cupcake, but I was sure I remembered it having a mashmellow-y filling. So I made marshmellow buttercream!
So, devil's food (dark chocolate) cucpakes, marshmellow buttercream filling and chocolate ganache on top! I got the seal of approval from all the moms at the Mother's Day celebration...and even an uncle or two.
Cupcake name: Hostess-of-the-Mostest Cupcakes!

My First Bridal Shower

Hi there! I'm still trying to get in the habit of actually posting.

Anyhoo, I was able to make 80+ cupcakes for a bridal shower. Her flowers are Calla Lilies, and her colors are purple and silver. Check out what I did! I molded the lilies out of vanilla fondant. The doo-dads on top are white chocolate molds ("S" monogram; I love monograms!).
The cupcakes were a triple-chocolate fudge, filled with chocolate buttercream. The flower cupcakes are french vanilla with vanilla buttercream. The frosting as alllll buttercream too!
They were a big hit! It's always flattering when people are afraid to touch something that's completely edible. :) I love my job!
