HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAKE!! Jake's Mom, Jodi, contacted me and asked me to make Power Ranger cupcakes for Jake's birthday celebration at school. These are half chocolate and half vanilla. The Power Rangers are all made with home made colored fondant and detailed with edible ink. I really wanted to try a new technique that involved freezing buttercream but it didn't pan out but I am determined to create new fun ways of getting the requests of cartoon charecters onto my Babycakes! Thank you Jodi and Mike for being faithful customers again and again!

These cupcakes were made for my future son in-law, Joseph! My daughter's best friend! He just turned 5 and crazy about Disney Pixar movies, especially Cars. The green cupcakes represent Chick Hicks and the blue ones represent Dinoco Blue. There were minis for the parents and individual favors for the guests...great party and loved making them for him!!

These cupcakes are simple but no less delicious than the kind that take more time to prepare. The best reason to bake is for no reason at all! I love to evoke a warm feeling towards those people in my life that I really appreciate. These were made for the staff at my daughter's school. My daughter attends a school for special needs and therefore has a teacher, two teacher's assistants, a speech therapist, an occupational therapist, a social worker and specialty teachers for music, gym and computer class. That's a lot of people that are working along side of her to help her meet her goals and have made a huge difference in our lives. It's really important to SHOW someone you really care instead of simply saying it.

These soccer themed cupcakes are for a birthday girl named Abigail. She's turning 5! Abigail's parents are hosting her party at an indoor sports facility called Give It Your All Sports (Ronkonkoma, NY)so I had to give it my all too! The cupcakes are also paired with some burgers for the guests' parents....I love it when everyone's included!
I hope that Abigail loves her personalized soccer jerseys and has a blast at her party! XOXO Happy 5th Birthday Abby!!
