It seems like every week 'blog' is on my to-do list, and it never seems to get done! So I thought I'd just picture dump in one blog post and be done with it :) Here we go:
Pretty springtime cupcakes for a wedding shower. Double chocolate cupcakes with a raspberry filling...one of my favorite combos! Topped with a dainty chocolate flower.
Canucks hockey puck cake...fairly simple, but so fun and vibrant!
I love getting orders for boy cakes...seems like I do a lot of girly cakes, so it's fun to go out of the box sometimes :)
Vanilla latte cupcakes for my little sis' birthday...um, yum. Recipe here. I used my regular vanilla buttercream and added some super strong coffee to it.
Mother's Day 'high heeled shoe' cupcakes to honor my wonderful mothers. So blessed to have them in my life. Lovely Pinterest inspiration for this idea...a cupcake with a Milano cookie inserted in as the 'sole' of the shoe and a Pirouette cookie as the 'heel'. Not only are they cute, but the cookies are delicious too :) Cupcakes and cookies...doesn't get much better than that.
Beesting cake. Recipe from our church cookbook from one talented lady :) I didn't use to be a huge coconut fan, but this cake has converted me. It's my best.
Monster cake pops for 2 cute little boys' birthdays! Love their little characters. The eyes were ones you can get in a little package at Michaels or Safeway and made my life so much easier...no fiddling with chocolate or edible pens needed!
And a cake for a mother-in-law's 60th? birthday! 2 tiered and decorated with royal icing flowers in blue and purple. Vanilla cake with strawberry preserves and devil's food cake with a pastry cream filling, topped with a vanilla buttercream.
Thanks for looking! Have you been creating anything fun in the kitchen lately?
PS...check back soon for a post with my girl's birthday party--lots of girly fun!
