Baptism Cupcakes

These were created for a little boy's baptism. I love them simplicity of the design. Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.

Birthday Cupcakes

These were ordered from a woman in Denver who has a sister that lives in Naperville. She wanted to surprise her with cupcakes delivered to her door. She asked for red velvet with cream cheese and a fun happy birthday decoration. I always say, cupcakes make a really thoughtful birthday gift. I'm leaving the cupcakes on the front porch so that it will be the first thing her sister sees when she gets home from work. How fun!

1st Birthday Cupcakes & Cookies

These cupcakes and sugar cookie favors were created for a little girl's 1st birthday party. The cupcakes are red velvet with cream cheese frosting and the sugar cookies have a vanilla royal icing. The decorations on top of the cupcakes are chocolate.

I received this really sweet note from my client:

The cake, cupcakes and cookies were a huge hit and of course everyone asked (foolishly) 1) if I made them and then 2) where I got them. When I told them Naperville, they did think I was a little crazy, but I still think well worth drive. Not only did they look beautiful, they tasted great too. I heard the cookies were good but did not get to try one yet (I saved one for myself.) Should have ordered more cookies. Meredith did not dive into the cake like I thought, instead she took her mini ice cream cone and dug in into the top of the cake. I'll send some pictures once I get them downloaded. Thanks again.

Teddy Bear Sugar Cookies

These are the favors for a birthday party at Build-A-Bear. They are for a little girl, so I thought I would make the teddy bear a bit feminine.

Under the Sea Cupcakes

These were created for a 2 year old girl's birthday party. She was having a fish themed party. I think the decorations have taken on their own personality. Fish and starfish made of chocolate with royal icing eyes. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting. (This flavor is definitely been popular lately)

Skull & Crossbone Cupcakes

My client requested skull and crossbone cupcake decorations for a co-worker who was leaving the company. They were having a going away party for her and wanted to surprise her with cupcakes decorated in her favorite thing. We decided to make them as "girly" as we could. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

Automobile Cupcakes

These cupcakes were created for a 2 year old boy's birthday party. His mother said he is obsessed with cars. I decided to make cars, steering wheels and tires. My friend Patty made the cars....she is a pro at sculpting things out of chocolate. All decorations are edible. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

Clown Fish Sugar Cookies

These were created for a little 2 year old girl to bring to her daycare to celebrate her birthday. She is obsessed with a certain clown fish (whom shall remain nameless), so her mom asked me to make fish cookies. They were fun and the perfect size for 2 year olds.
