The Twin's 6th Birthday!

I am so happy to have these pictures from my client, Kristi. She did an amazing job! Is this not the most beautiful make your own sundae bar you have seen. The party was for her beautiful twin girls, Michal and Kenna, who were turning 6 and were so excited for their awesome party. Kristi really outdid herself. My contribution was the butterfly cupcakes to go along with the theme of the "Fancy Nancy" birthday party. How great is the cupcake tower. As soon as I saw it, I asked where she bought it, left her home and went to the store to get one. I love it and can't wait to use it. Thanks again, Kristi for the beautiful pictures.

These cupcakes were for the twins.

Tea Cup Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookie were created to match the invitation of a bridal shower. They were fun to do, but a little stressful since I had never made a tea cup cookie before. My friend Laurie, who hosted the shower, came up with the clever little saying on the tag ;)

50th Birthday Cupcakes

I was asked to create cupcakes for a 50th birthday celebration at Distinctive Cork in Naperville. The colors for the decorations were to be cream and chocolate brown. The cupcakes and frosting were both chocolate because I was told that the birthday girl was a chocoholic. I set up the stand as a centerpiece on the dining table.

Happy New Year Client Gifts

These were created for my brother who owns Better Roll Productions. He was looking for client gifts and prefers to give them as New Year gifts rather than Christmas gifts. I like that idea, because people aren't expecting anything. It's a fun surprise. Large chocolate cupcakes; 2 with mint buttercream frosting and 2 with chocolate fudge frosting.

Welcome Baby Present!

I had a woman from Boston call me and order onesie sugar cookies for her friend, in my area, who just had a baby. Who doesn't love to get cookies as a gift! I delivered them to her friend the day after Mom and baby came home from the hospital.

Bridal Shower Cupcakes

These large cupcakes were created for a bridal shower. I was told that the bride to be only likes carrot cake, so they were all carrot with cream cheese frosting. The pink and orange were to be accent colors in the flower centerpieces, so my client decided to continue with that theme on the decorations of the cupcakes.

Jackson's Baptism Cupcakes

Created these cupcakes for a client who was baptizing her first born. She asked me to decorate some with crosses and some with the baby's monogram. Yellow cupcakes with vanilla buttercream

Personalized Christmas Cookies

Made these for a client who has 5 boys. They were all going to be home for the holidays (some with significant others) and I thought it would be fun if she gave them each their own cookie; she thought so too :)
