I love this tower!! It is so much fun. The tower was created for an engagement party that had a Caribbean theme; from the decorations to the food the entire room felt like you were transported. The cake, of course, was made by Patty; she really outdid herself. The pirate has so much personality, I just love him. The cupcake flavors are; banana with cream cheese frosting, yellow with vanilla buttercream, coconut with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate with vanilla buttercream all tinted colors to go along with the cake.
I created these cupcakes and small cake for my friend Laurie. Her dad was coming into town from Connecticut and she wanted to celebrate his birthday with a theme of his favorite past time; playing cards. I don't normally do cakes, but did this one since it was the request of a good friend. (Excuse the bad frosting job)! The cake was coconut the cupcake flavors were; chocolate with vanilla buttercream, yellow with vanilla buttercream and red velvet with cream cheese. The cake was also to say goodbye to her son who was going back to college in California.
This tower was created for a very intimate, casual wedding. So much so that the groom actually picked up the cupcakes and they decorated the tower on their own. It was nice to have a Sunday off :)
Cucpake flavors; yellow cupcakes with chocolate fudge, carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, chocolate cupcakes with strawberry buttercream and lemon cupcakes with lemon curd cream cheese. The large cupcake on top for the bride and groom was chocolate with chocolate fudge frosting.

This cupcake tower was created for a surprise 40th birthday party. Since the birthday girl was born in '69, her husband threw a theme party for her. All the guests dressed like hippies and I made cupcakes with peace signs, "love" on hearts and funky tie-dye flowers. The cupcakes flavors were; chocolate with vanilla buttercream and coffee buttercream, carrot with cream cheese frosting and yellow with chocolate fudge frosting.

These were created for a boy who was having a boy/girl party in the backyard for his 12th birthday. His mom asked for cupcakes that were pretty generic and fun. This is what I came up with. I hope he liked them. Yellow cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and chocolate fudge frosting.

The bride just sent me these beautiful photographs from her wedding on July 17th. I'm so glad she did, because I wasn't able to get a picture of the tower the day of. I love how the purple looks. The top cake was made by Patty. It looks like some guests got into the cupcakes before the bride and groom cut the cake :)
The cupcake flavors are: Chocolate with vanilla buttercream, Yellow with vanilla buttercream and Carrot with cream cheese frosting.
