These were created for a client who wanted some cupcakes delivered to a friend. She wanted these to be a surprise for a friend whom she felt needed a little pick me up. I think cupcakes make a great gift. The cupcakes are chocolate with a vanilla buttercream frosting. This is my large size cupcake which is about double the size of a regular cupcake. The large size is fun, because you can tie a coordinating ribbon around it.
