My number one customer, Michele, asked me to make one dozen vanilla cupcakes for a bridal shower held for her sister in-law to be. She mailed me the invite for the wedding as a template for what to put on the cupcakes. Very simple but no mistaking a tasty preview of the special event around the corner!

I offered my daughter Lindsey the moon and stars....I showed her many pictures of various cupcakes and told myself I would try to create anything she wanted for the celebration at our house. She wanted small flowers and the number 4. I added her name bands with additional flowers. I kept thinking these are soooo simple. No shooting stars or long hours involved....
She was more than pleased and gobbled up her little flowers with a smile on her adorable face.

My friend Michele is hosting a "Cousins Party" at her home and wanted all her younger guests to feel like V.I.Ps so she asked me to personalize each child's cupcake. I thought this was such a neat idea! The older kids have their choice of chocolate cupcakes topped off with vanilla frosting and colored sugars.
Michele is a real treasure of a friend but today I wish I were her cousin!

I rec'd a cupcake order for Baby Nicholas' Baptism. I had made some Bakerella inspried communion cupcakes a couple months back in a pink and brown color combo and Jamie, (Nick's Mom) wanted them in masculine blue instead for this special day. She sent me a picture of the invite and very easy to match. I have a feeling this little boy is going to have many blessings in his future!

Happy Independence Day (and Happy 100th post on my blog!)2010! Very happy to have been able to bake cupcakes for our friends, Michele and Ed. They hosted an engagement/independence day party at their beautiful home and it was great to combine both occasions into these batches. Michele sent me ideas for both the patriotic and those symbolizing amor. Lots to celebrate and lots of variety to suit anyone's taste!
