A colleague at work wanted six cupcakes for her family’s gathering to celebrate her father’s birthday.
Jenna told me that her dad is crazy for golf and he loves his nightly walks with their dog Zoe. So here are six cupcakes celebrating Dad’s special day.
I’ve always been intrigued with Day of the Dead celebrations and I thought this year I’d recognize it with a pair of individual mini cakes featuring skulls and flowers. These cakes were vanilla with lemon curd filling. Yum!
I saw these cupcakes somewhere on the internet and I thought they looked like so much fun. I used Smarties (a Canadian version of M&Ms) because the colours are much more varied.
These silly fish cupcakes flew (swam?) out the door on SPCA Cupcake Day. So happy to be able to help out.
I love succulents! Their shapes. Their shades of dusty green. Their variety of unique shapes.
I decided to try making them out of buttercream for cupcakes to raise money for SPCA Cupcake Day. These were pretty popular and didn’t last long.
Win-win! I had fun making them and the critters at the shelter will be taken care of. Perfect.
These sweet cupcakes were for a baby shower with an elephant and balloon theme.
I got a call from the mum-to-be’s sister who was putting on the shower, saying that the sex of the baby would be known on Friday afternoon. The shower was on Sunday. Could I make the cupcakes with a “gender reveal” interior?
On Sunday after lunch, the shower guests all held cupcakes and at the same time, took a bite. They had pink icing interiors. It’s a girl!
It’s almost the end of August (and it’s still summer!) so when asked to bring dessert for a lunch we were invited to, I opted for abstract watermelon cupcakes.
They were lemon cake with lemon curd filling topped with buttercream icing. No one quite got that they were supposed to be watermelon lookalikes but that was okay. They were gobbled up in no time anyhow.
Becky’s mum called me up and asked me to create cupcakes with a horse theme. Becky is an avid rider, so mini fondant horses with horseshoes for luck seemed a great way to celebrate her birthday.
