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!}

Happy Birthday, Lindsey!

I have more fun with my letter sugar cookie cutters than just about anything else I think! I wanted to make something personalized and special for Lindsey’s birthday, so I made these cupcakes with chocolate-dipped letter/candle toppers 🙂

Baby Shower Cupcakes

A friend and I planned our friend Suzie’s baby shower together… we had fun planning the custom ‘Welcome’ board, and some themed refreshments and games. I originally saw these baby face cupcakes at another baby shower the month before and am still searching for those original images since I stole the inspiration! 🙂 We also decorated with more balloons and had a framed message board for guests to write notes to welcome Baby Han.

Birthday Cupcakes

Using delicious Funfetti cake mix and frosting, I created these cupcakes for a friend’s birthday party! I made the cupcake flags by cutting out an elongated diamond shape (in this case, from cute Origami paper), and wrapping it in half around a toothpick. Then I glued the two pieces together and used a craft punch to make the star cutout and curled the paper with my thumb, and then Voila! Custom, colorful, fun cupcake flags for the occasion 🙂

Pansy cupcakes

These were a fun new challenge to tackle for a friend’s bridal shower! My friend loves flowers, so I knew incorporating real flowers into her special treat would be perfect. I think I could have done a better job had I allowed a little more time to let the flowers fully dry, but I think they still looked pretty and pretty tasty too 🙂
