Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting topped with an edible "turkey." The turkey is made of milk & white chocolate & Hershey's chocolate kisses.

These were chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting!

I am so thankful to be blessed with the time, energy, & love to bake goodies which make people happy! I am also thankful to have a supportive & loving family who allow me to do something I love!


Every good and perfect gift comes from above...including CUPCAKES! =D

Pink & Orange Girl Baby Shower

I threw a surprise baby shower for a friend who's expecting a Baby Girl!
I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting topped with pink & orange edible onesies!

(Sorry the photo turned out bad)

Here are the guests & Mommy to be posing with the cupcakes!

For favors & name cards, I dipped marshmallows in white chocolate, then sprinkled pink & orange sprinkles over them. They stood in colored MnMs in a mini shot glass with a clothespin as the name tag.

I made a mini diaper cake centerpiece topped with pink & orange daisies!

Pink & brown onesies were used as decorations!
She was surprised & very happy! It was so much fun to throw it! Congrats, Conny!

Phineas & Ferb Cake

My nephew was turning ONE & his parents asked me to make his very 1st birthday cake! He wanted chocolate cupcakes & I topped them with cream cheese frosting that I colored blue. I made cutouts of the Disney show characters out of marshmallow fondant and put them together like a puzzle! I also made the writing on the cake "Happy 1st Birthday ETHAN" out of marshmallow fondant.

The birthday boy's parents bought the Phineas & Ferb toy characters to place on top of the cake in case I wasn't able to do a Phineas & Ferb cake, but I think I did a pretty good job.

The birthday boy, his parents, & his older sister!

The birthday boy's older sister eating Phineas...or Ferb...I can't remember who's who...

Boy Baby Shower cupcakes

A friend from my church was throwing a baby shower for a friend & asked me to make over a dozen cupcakes for the party. Theme was blue & green. I decided to surround the cupcakes this time with a personalized wrapper & marshmallows to give the presentation a softer appeal.

I made chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting & topped them with homemade marshmallow fondant decorations of onesies. Everyone enjoyed them!

On display at the party...

A happy customer!

Spiderman Inspired Cake

My little cousin turned 4 years old & wanted a Spiderman cake. I made about 2 dozen chocolate cupcakes and 2 dozen white cupcakes colored blue. I used red and white marshmallow fondant for Spiderman himself.

I used the extra cupcakes that wouldn't fit on the cake board to serve with personalized cupcake toppers. The kids loved the blue cream cheese frosting over all the cupcakes!
