Ladybug & Ghost Cupcakes

These were created for a 1 year old's birthday party. The theme was Bug & Boo. I did ladybugs and ghost cupcakes. Ladybug cupcakes are chocolate with vanilla buttercream and the ghost are on yellow cupcakes with vanilla buttercream tinted black. There are going to be some messy little mouths at the party :) The little cake is for the birthday girl to smash when they sing Happy Birthday.

Wedding Cupcake Tower Slide Show Video

I've created this slide show video (actually my 13 year old did all the work) for prospective brides to look at the different cupcake towers I have created for weddings. Cupcake towers can be decorated many number of ways. These are just a few examples, but the sky is the limit. Cupcakes are really fun at a wedding because you can have as many flavors as you like which translates to guests getting to choose their favorite flavor cake. Enjoy the video!

Victorian Cupcakes

These cupcakes were created for my client's book club meeting. They read "Sin in the Second City", which is set during the early 1900's in Chicago. We decided on a Victorian theme for the cupcakes. I did my interpretation of Victorian lace on a heart. Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

I received this lovely note from my client:

Rose, The cupcakes were a HUGE hit with the ladies of the bookclub.
They were moist and delicious, and perfect with the theme. Thank you so
much for making them. Joan B.

Truffle Box Favors
