Cupcakes... and more Cupcakes!

This weekend was nothing but CUPCAKES! 300 of them to be exact... The first were for my good friend Gina. It was her super cute sister-in-law, Stephanie's baby shower and she wanted some cute cupcakes to go along with the decor. Earlier in the week Gina and I had put together some tags and chinese take-out boxes for the candy buffet they were doing. I will have to get some pictures of those later... I have to say, these are my favorite cupcakes I have ever done. So simple, but cute! Gina said all the decor looked really cute- I only wish I was there to see it all! Anyways, I had fun helping Gina, and can't wait to see the pictures. I will definitely post some!!

Next came my first non-family related wedding! It was for Courtney, who contacted me a few weeks back in need for a cake quick! We came up with cupcakes, and I think they came out really nice. Half of the 215 cupcakes were chocolate and the other half were rainbow chip flavors. They had handmade fondant flowers and round fondant "T" chips for decoration, as well as clear sprinkles. The top cake was chocolate with vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant. The flowers on the top were fresh tulips. They were all placed on my custom black stand. I hope they were everything you wanted, Courtney! :)

And last, but not least, were the fun cupcakes I made for a long lost friend of mine, Sarah. We had just recently come in contact again (thanks Facebook!) and she asked if I could make these for her baby girl's Baptism. I gladly said yes, of course!! They were chocolate and white cake with fondant and cream cheese frostings. I need to use cream cheese frosting more often, btw... they were so yummy!! (Of course I tried one ;) It was so great to see her and her mom, Linda. It brought back so many sweet memories... :) Thanks, Sarah, for letting me create these for you and Ava!

Here is the gorgeous set-up, thanks to Sarah's creativity...

I also have to say a serious "Thank You" to my "assistant" and friend, Nicole. She helped me with most of the cupcakes this weekend, and more importantly, went with me to deliver and set up the wedding cupcakes. I was more nervous than I thought I would be, and thank God she was there to chill me out! So THANKS, Dude- I couldn't have done it without you!!! :)
