I was so honored when Icing Smiles contacted me to provide a cupcake tower for Rosie. Icing Smiles is a wonderful organization that provides birthday cakes to children with critical illnesses. What a pleasure it was to make this "celebration of life" theme cupcake tower for Rosie and her family. It was so great to meet them today when I delivered the goodies. Rosie lights up the room as soon as she walks in; she is a bundle of positive energy. What a doll!! She was so excited to see her cake and was over the top when she found out the figure on top was her. My dear friend Patty of Sweet P Sweets made the cake topper.
To learn more about Rosie's story, check out her website.
These cupcakes were created for a sweet 16 party. They are red velvet with cream cheese (the birthday girl's favorite) and yellow and chocolate with vanilla buttercream. The decorations incorporate Nicole's favorite colors and her initial. I was asked to shape the cupcakes into the #16, so I brought my husband along to help me with that task. I am spatially challenged (to say the least). I think he did a pretty good job :)
