My co-worker Scott was having a party for his one-year-old son Simon. I was already making a Mickey Mouse cake so he asked me to also make 12 cupcakes because he was having a crowd and lots of kids.
I stuck with the colour theme of bright blue and added Smarties and little yellow number ones. The kids loved them! And so did the adults. Can’t beat bright blue icing and Smarties, right?
I’ve made some really fun cupcakes to celebrate Cheryl’s birthday in previous years so this time I decided to “think spring.” Roses, hydrangea and calendula conjure up thoughts of warmer days. Happy birthday Cheryl.
A potluck lunch at work to celebrate the holidays and I opted to bring dessert. I figured cupcakes would be easiest for a crowd.
I’d seen green chocolate Christmas trees supported by pretzel trunks on Pinterest and I was up for the challenge. Working with chocolate and making squiggles that are roughly the shape of a Christmas tree is fun. And the results are satisfying. A few sprinkle baubles and you’re good to go!
Chocolate cupcakes with a snowy buttercream swirl, covered in coconut, reminiscent of snow and voila! The Christmas tree has a perfect spot to rest.
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.
