Sugar is sweet and so are you...

Roses are red, violets are blue. I love cupcakes and so do you. Here are some fun cupcakes and cakes that I have made recently. Enjoy!

Fist, the spring daisy cupcakes were made for a local women's organization dinner party. They were Lemon Cupcakes with Lemonade frosting. I made little fondant daisies to top them off.

Next, I made Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes with Buttercream frosting. I made the frosting two-toned using half pink and half white, then I topped the cakes with colorful sprinkles!

I was so happy to make these treats for an adorable little girl named Brylee. They were Vanilla Cupcakes with Pink Lemonade Frosting. I molded white chocolate butterflies to top the little cakes and hand-tied bows for a girly finish.

Finally, I made this Pink Lemonade birthday cake for my friend Lena. I used white chocolate to create the circle in the middle and piped her name with the pink lemonade frosting.

Strawberries & shortcake... what's not to love?

When I was growing up, I had Strawberry Shortcake wallpaper. She was my favorite character in whole world. Call me crazy, but I used to think I looked like her! Short... freckles... you get the picture. I guess it goes without saying that I was more than happy to make this cake for a 5th birthday party.

The actual cake is Strawberry (it's only fitting) and the frosting is cream cheese. I was shopping at Michael's Craft store one day and came accross this adorable little candle... which is now sitting atop the cake. I can't wait to create more fun cakes like this one!

Here comes baby J!

I am so excited because one of my college roomates is having a baby boy! She is such a sweet person and I know she is going to be an amazing mom. For her baby shower, I made Martha Stewart's Coconut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting. I topped them with sweetened flaked coconut and piped little blue "Js" on top for Baby Joyner.

I had so much fun hanging out with my favorite girls at the baby shower. I miss seeing them everyday! Cant wait for more bridal showers, baby showers and weddings in the near future!
