Fondant Funnies

Ok, not so funny, but truly fun! Jake & I are on our way to mastering fondant. Proof is below 🙂 Here are the cupcakes I made for Carrie’s baby shower with a baby animal theme. Then Julie decided she was going to have a baby, so I made baby owl cupcakes for her – … Continue reading

The Boss!

We met Buddy! And I’m sure there’s no need to explain to all of you who Buddy is. But just in case you don’t know, he’s the owner of Carlo’s Bakery in NJ and has two shows, The Next Great Baker and Cake Boss. Our Giant Eagle Market District store nearby brings in celebrity chefs … Continue reading

Yes, I made my own birthday cupcakes

If we bought them anywhere else, they wouldn’t have been as good. Ha, is that vain? Regardless, I didn’t want to be disappointed on my birthday. Chocolate cupcake combinations are about my favorite thing on earth, so I made Grasshopper cupcakes (Chocolate Mint) & Chocolate Covered Cherry. I can’t decide which ones i like better … Continue reading

Too many orders to blog?

Yeah, I know what you’re saying. No excuses, cupcake! But we really have been super busy! The orders seem to come in faster than we can keep up (well, not really but it’s a lot!) I did an order of red velvet & vanilla cupcakes for a friend’s son’s Christening. The gold sprinkles added a … Continue reading

These are some pics from a couple orders … Continue reading

Down the line, I made: Vanilla with Vanilla Bean Buttercream, Chocolate & Chocolate Icing, Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting, Chocolate with … Continue reading

It’s been a while, cupcake..

It’s not that I haven’t been baking. I’ve actually been baking up a storm. But the last few months of my life have been a whirlwind as my boyfriend and I moved out of our old apartment, moved in with my parents for a month or so, then finally moved up in the world with … Continue reading

We did it!

I have to say that getting ready for my dad’s surprise 50th birthday party was a little exhausting. It was my first cupcake tower! Here’s some pics of my fondant man making the poker chips, playing cards and dice. We got a lot of complements on them. I’ve tested every other recipe except for the … Continue reading

Building Our First Cupcake Tower

In preparation for my dad’s 50th birthday surprise party next weekend, my boyfriend helped me make a cupcake tower to put all my yummy cupcakes on. I first started pulling some photos of different towers for reference. Here are 2 that I particularly find beautiful via Cupcakes Take the Cake: I loved the dark wrappers on both … Continue reading

Testing, testing..

To start off with.. guess what I bought?!?! Ta Da! She’s so beautiful, I wanted to hug her for hours! (Yes, it’s a her because she’s a beautiful shade of pink, my assistant, and she will be receiving a name as soon as I find one good enough!) In an effort to make the most … Continue reading
