Happy 4th Birthday, Bridgetown Design!

My friends hired me to bake cupcakes for their company birthday party! I had fun with these vintage malt milkshake-inspired cupcakes; they were my first filled cupcakes, and I got to try out my cupcake corer! 🙂 Still working on the piping techniques!

Happy 4th, Bridgetown Design!

 

CUPCAKE FLAVOR 1:

Vanilla cupcakes with real strawberry filling and cream cheese frosting. Garnished with a strawberry and red and white paper straw. {I’m hearing Contestant voices on Cupcake Wars presenting their cupcake flavors to the judges….haha!}

Here are some fun progress shots I barely had enough time to stop and take! I think they tell the story well….

Baking with Pictures

This Ikea – Homemade is Best site left an impression with me the first time I saw it. I thank a former co-worker who has since passed for this gift. Having an extremely visual learning style, and appreciation for organization and graphics and design, makes me appreciate this book even more. I love it because it demonstrates a universal language to me with undeniable grace and beauty.

Not nearly as detailed or graphically successful, I created these picture menu sheets for fun to send to my family in Korea so that they could make my Mom’s famous cookie bars without me…

Later on, a family member in Korea created this Korean potato recipe for me….
