Diaper Cupcakes!

Something different. A nice treat, but not edible! This past weekend, I attended my husband’s coworker’s baby shower. Since my specialty is cupcakes, I decided to make her some diaper cupcakes.

The ingredients are:
diapers (of course)
baby socks
washcloths

I tied them up with ribbon and then also put them in a cupcake box, topped with a nice ribbon and bow. I attached the pictures below, so check it out and let me know what you think. Yum! Lol!

My latest project: So Lemony!

Hopefully you are enjoying this journey with me and my cupcake business. A couple of weekends ago I was requested to make some so lemony cupcakes. As always I was up for the challenge. They were for a church function so I did a little bit of a twist on the decorations. I baked the cupcakes in a grass printed liner and placed small yellow flowers made from royal icing on top. They were a hit. One of my customers referred to the cupcake as “lemon sunshine in her mouth!” (Hate to toot my own horn, but “toot toot!”) They raved over the moistness in the cake as well as the light and fluffy texture of the icing. All in all, it went very well and I believe the cupcakes turned out great! Check back for more updates soon! Yum!

Last weekend, Butter Rum Cupcakes!

So, what have I been up to lately? Well, this past weekend I did not update the blog because we went out of town to visit some family and of course, I made them some cupcakes. I actually made some butter rum cupcakes with a buttercream icing and the funny thing is I did not have any of my tools to do anything. I had to kind of pull all of the recipes from somewhere in the back of my brain. I have no idea how I actually was able to remember all of that stuff. I had to improvise on measurements because there were no measuring cups or spoons. No decorating bags or icing tips, so ziploc bags it was. The classic swirl turned out nice, and surprisingly the cupcakes turned out really good, too! What can I say? I’m a genius (a professional genius at that)! Put me in the kitchen and I make magic happen! Lol!

Butter rum was actually not a flavor that I planned on making, but everyone seemed to like the cupcakes and I can definitely add it to my resume. So, the recipe for a nice relaxing weekend calls for: family and friends, nice weather, fresh air, and some delicious cupcakes. Yum!

Yellow Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing, Finally!

You are going to be very proud of me. I finally made the yellow cupcakes with the chocolate icing and also I made some lemon cupcakes with lemon icing. The pictures are posted below for you to see.They were very good. The yellow cupcakes were very moist and had a nice butter flavor to them. Everyone really enjoyed them. The lemon cupcakes were nice and lemony. Check back soon because I will be doing some fourth of July cupcakes for this upcoming holiday! Yum!
