Ladybug Birthday~

~Hello again!!.. here is my second set of birthday cupcakes for this weekend.. I was baking like a madwoman getting all of these baked and delivered and it was so much fun doing these different themes for the girls' birthdays! These cupcakes were for my friend at work who was having a sunflower/ladybug birthday party for her daughter's fifth birthday. She already had a ladybug cake, but wanted the cupcakes for all of the little kids who attended. There is another tray full of these in chocolate too! I love my new polka dot cupcake trays. I scored two of these and was so happy.. they worked so great with these little cupcakes!!We had a great time putting everything together and making treat bags and favors for them to all take home. Happy 5th birthday Akina! Hope you had a great day.. thanks for letting me bake for you guys!!

Happy Powerpuff Birthday!!

~Good Sunday afternoon! I was so honored to be asked to make this cake and cupcakes for my friend's niece's birthday.. Happy Birthday to Nina on her 7th birthday! She loves powerpuff girls and wanted her cake with those three little ladies on it.. wow, first of all, I didn't even know powerpuff girls were still around, so trying to find anything with that theme was a task, but I found the topper and the picks, so I knew I could do the rest! It is super girly and bright and I really hope her birthday sleepover was a huge success and they enjoyed their cakes!! I have one more birthday post for this weekend.. Thanks so much for looking!

Football Cupcake Cake~

~Hi there.. I wanted to share my latest treat with you! My friend at work is celebrating her son's 40th birthday today and wanted to take him a special treat. He loves the Dallas Cowboys, so I came up with this.. I wish I would have had time to find some real NFL cake stuff, but oh well! She really liked it and couldn't wait for her son to see it. I hope he shares.. :) I had never used my giant cupcake pan before, so I was so glad it came out. You may not be able to tell from the pic, but the cake actually stands over ten inches high and is sitting on a dinner plate. It is pretty big. I cut out some fondant stars and added floral wire to the three on top and added pearl dust to make them all pearly and glittery. I am going to use this pan a lot more now. It is so easy and so fun.. my imagine ran wild with all of these cute ideas with my giant cupcake pan! Well, have a great evening and a great weekend! I think I will make some more cupcakes this weekend, funnnn!! Thanks so much!

Cupcake Friday~

Hello there! I just wanted to share a quick post and share some cupcakes I made for a friend and his wife today. He gave me my first REAL cupcake order and was really excited to do these. They are lemon cake with marionberry filling, lemon cream cheese icing and then I sugared some cute little pansies I got from the nursery. I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them! I will be posting more pics of some cakes and cupcakes I have worked on.. Thanks so much for looking.. I also have two boxes of new Stampin' Up supplies I still need to sort and get some stamping done to post too... yikes, too much to do.. work gets in the way of so many projects here at home that I really want to start! I miss my stamps so much and I keep passing by my craft room and hope to get in there someday soon and craft away! LOL.. take care and have a good night!!
