Can I tell you how flattering it is to get a call for an order from someone who has never met me but yet has total faith that I can fulfill what they need? Well, I get such a thrill from these requests and always get most excited doing something new. Amy called me and needed cupcakes for her Dad's surprise 70th and she told me about him and we decided to use his hobbies for the toppers. I love the way they came out and such a welcome change from all the Halloween I've been doing for the past week. I hope Walter enjoys the party in his honor and the cupcakes that tell a little story about him.......

My Mom is so easy to please. She loves to bake and is famous for her friendship bread (it takes 10 days to prepare before baking!!), her rum cake and best of all, her Cuban flan. She will often bake for no reason and randomly select people in her life to share her baked goodness with so it comes as no surprise that the Church she is very dedicated to, asked her for a baked "donation" for a bake sale and she volunteered my Babycakes. I hope this small batch will stand up to her reputable edibles!!

My good friend Mary was her class president in high school and did her duty to organize the Locust Valley Class Reunion. The Class of 90 is going to enjoy these chocolate, vanilla and pumpkin cupcakes! Mary had thought it would be a great party favor and I loved making each and every indivdual package. Mary is one of those people who will go out of her way to make sure she puts a smile on your face so I hope these made her happy.
When Nancy called me to order some cupcakes, I was so excited to do Halloween cupcakes for the first time! Her son, Cooper is six and is celebrating by having a very fun birthday party at his house. There's a scavenger hunt and guests are coming in costume! I made sure to include some of my birthday themed cupcakes in there using the same spooky colors so that it would all blend. It was so cute to see the guest of honor all excited when I made my delivery!
