Butterfly Cupcakes

We made these cupcakes for Keira's 3rd Birthday today.  They are simple box cake cupcakes decorated with fondant butterflies and royal icing flowers.  Each butterfly was cut out with a butterfly cookie cutter and then embellished with small fondant cut outs and colored pearl sprinkles.  So pretty, just like Keira!

Bride and Groom Cake Pops

These bride and groom cake pops are for a bridal shower in Connecticut this weekend.  They are chocolate cake pops dipped in white and milk chocolate decorated with edible pearls.  If you haven't tried a cake pop you are missing out, they are heaven on earth!  Good luck to the new bride and groom!

Bon Voyage Cake

Recently my husband asked Love Bug Cakes to make a cake for a co-worker.  She was leaving the company to drive cross country, visiting spots along the way, and finally settling for good in Washington state.  We created a cake that incorporated some of her main stops and favorite things.  Starting in Virginia with the company symbol, heading to Wisconsin and the Green Bay Packers, and ending with Washington and the beautiful sunsets she with see there.  All of the decorations were made from fondant, edible markers, and icing.
Icing on the arrows said Heading West.

Nautical Birthday Party

Still playing a little bit of catch up with my posts.  A few weeks ago my friends and I threw a surprise party for my sister-in-law.  It was a nautical theme so the cake balls are decorated with white chocolate anchors, stars, and boat wheels.  It was such a great night!

Pretty Cupcakes

Last night I made cupcakes for my neighbors 30th birthday.  They were chocolate cake with super yummy butter cream frosting.  This recipe for butter cream is definitely the best we have tried.  Each cupcake decorated with a tiny royal icing flower.


Easter cookie tree!  The sugar cookies are iced in two colors and tied on with blue ribbon.

 Easter Cake pops in ducks and lambs.  The lambs are cover with white chocolate melts, their heads are junior mints,  icing eyes, mini chocolate chip ears, and large chocolate chip feet.  The ducks are decorated with assorted candy.

Wine Basket Cake

This cake was made for a 30th Birthday and is personalized to the birthday girl. The wine bottle is named after her and has been aging since 1979, her birth year. The bottom layer of the chocolate cake is covered in green fondant and then a red checked fondant table cloth. The second layer is dark chocolate frosting piped in a basket weave design. The cake is decorated with bugs and flowers made of fondant and royal icing.
