A new customer contacted me requesting cupcakes for the surprise party she was planning for her husband Paul. He had recently passed the CPA exam and that's plenty reason to celebrate. She had suggested calculators and I am so glad she did, a real representation of accountants that use the calculators with the paper scroll. The cupcake will be used as the party favors and hoping the guests really enjoy them!!

It's that time again....time for sharp pencils, clean notebooks, new teachers, homework and tests! School symbols are universal for so many students and what a great way to celebrate the new school year and your birthday!! My friend Kristine, requested mini cupcakes for her daughter Lauren's birthday with this theme. It was a lot of fun making some of the fondant symbols smaller than usual and loved the end result. I hope that Lauren and her school friends think these make the grade!

My sweet son is THREE years old today and his personality is so positive and humorous. My kids see cupcakes all the time but their excitement never ceases. I always try to create something personal. Chase has a huge collection of toy cars and trucks and loves anything he can push or roll. I was initially going to make cupcakes decorated with wheels on top of them but thought it would be whimsical to have a little character winking at him! Lucky lil boy is getting another batch for school in just a couple of days which I plan on making chocolate cars.....coming soon!

Three years ago, I shared a hospital room with another new Mom. I had my baby boy and she had her baby boy AND baby girl! Yes, beautiful twins! We talked about everything under the sun and I felt lucky to have shared those first few days with such a caring and sweet woman. Here we are 3 years later and she requested cupcakes for her kids' Build-A-Bear birthday party. Hello Kitty for Gina and Dinosaurs for Louis. I found a tutorial from A Baked Creation and just couldn't help but make two of the various dinosaurs. They are individually boxed for the guests to take home and I think they turned out adorable!
I remember the day Janet was discharged from the hospital, she was wearing a tee shirt that read, "Twins, twice the love, half the sleep." Gina and Louis are pretty lucky ot have such a great Mommy!

These cupcakes were made with my very special ingredient of LOVE. Ryan requested Pokemon and Mario Bros. cupcakes. Home made banners were used instead of fondant for his class but really hoping I get a chance to use fondant for this theme for his actual party. It blows my mind that Ryan is already SIX years old! He is a great kid and hoping that when he eats his cupcake, he tastes the love inside!
Happy Birthday Ryan!!! I love you!

This delicacy is for my number one customer, Michele. She and her husband host an annual "Lobster Night" in their home. Lobster Night consists of 2 lb. lobsters, filet mignon among other mouth watering food for close friends and family.
I wanted to make sure Michele knows for certain just how much her friendship and support means to me. This small token was just a simple "Thank You" for every encouragement she's offered me since day one.
The Cupcake is dark chocolate with vanilla frosting hand dipped in "sand," topped off with a red chocolate lobster.
