I love to bake and frost cupcakes, but stayed away from using fondant. I watch all those baking shows on tv and am amazed at the work these bakers do with fondant. I have an upcoming "baby reveal" cake to make for a friend and wanted to make something a little fancier for her. I used store bought fondant in my first attempt. It was so much fun and easy to do! With the help of a mini cookie cutter, I just tried some out on homemade chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. My friends from church loved my "practice" cupcakes at a potluck pool party. Enjoy!

For my good friend, a huge Lakers fan, I made him chocolate stout cupcakes frosted with vanilla icing. The chocolate, beer, & vanilla were a delicious combination. I topped the cupcakes with homemade paper toppers inspired by the Lakers team's players & jersey's. These yummy cupcakes were wrapped with homemade cupcake wrappers in the team's colors of purple & gold!

Surprise! They're ube cupcakes ( a Filipino fruit) and white cake cupcakes! For my aunt's surpise party, I was asked to make these delicious and lovely cupcakes. I used a white cake batter and added ube flavoring to the batter to half of the cupcakes. The other half I left alone. I topped them with cream cheese frosting dyed purple and topped with white sugar pears and edible glitter. Since the party's color theme was lavender, I thought these were perfect for the occassion!
