My Gift to You

The bow on top gives the cupcake a little something extra for the look and the taste. The cupcake is strawberry with chocolate ganache (think chocolate covered strawberry's...yummm!) and the bow is made out of white chocolate. "My Gift to You"! Delish...Enjoy!

Baby Shower

These are my first babyshower cupcakes made for a friend. Since I try to stay away from fondant (so far anyway---due to the taste), I wanted to stick with buttercream for the design. For the next time, I think I'll try royal icing...that will probably give more of a sheen and be a little more forgiving than the buttercream. However, changing the consistency of the buttercream will probably work just fine as well--so many decisions! Moving on, the cupcakes are yellow with lemon zest and the frosting is a lemon glaze with tangy lemon buttercream for the letters & numbers.

Dora Birthday Party

These are my first attempt at Dora Princess cupcakes. One of my best friends' neice had a Dora themed party for her 3rd birthday and she gave me free reign to concoct my own cupcake and this was the result! It's a basic yellow cupcake with vanilla buttercream (tinted pink). The princess hat is made out of a mini ice cream cone and it is covered with melted buttercream and adorned with 'edible' crystals. The long bow off of the hat is a grape fruit roll-up, but I will be using taffy on the next go 'round. Finally, the frosting on the cupcake is decorated with multi-colored 'edible' confetti. The look will improve, but they tasted really good!

The Usual Too

These cupcakes were made for a baby shower and the reception went over very well! "The Usual Too" cupcakes are rich devil's food chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and of course you're familiar with the "Simply Strawberry's". If not, see previous post.

Simply Strawberry

My absolute favorite! I love, love, love these cupcakes and trust me--you will too! Strawberry Cupcakes (fresh strawberries might I add) with Cream Cheese Frosting; drizzled with strawberry sauce and topped off with a strawberry. You will LOVE these!

The Usual

It's nothing like a yellow cupcake with chocolate frosting... A lot of times, "The Usual" can be good...just like the taste of these cupcakes!
