My daughter turned 5 on friday, and of course we had to have an "Alice in Wonderland" themed birthday party. It was also very "Etsy" themed since I got a few things from there. One being her cute Alice dress! Also, the best tasting sugar cookies ever! Not only do they look amazing but they are perfectly tasting. I got her owl and puppy cookies for my birthday, and I think I will have to get some for every holiday.
We had a cute little tea party since we were just having girls to the party. I got all the plates and tea cups from the Goodwill along with all the vases I put red roses in. I got Regan a special tea cup from Anthropologie since we love tea! Don't worry, she drinks Organic kids tea with no caffeine ;)
I Also made my first fondant cake. Regan insisted on not having cupcakes, go figure. They are not special enough anymore since we make them like once a week. I still had to make some because I knew not everyone wanted strawberry cake like her. It turned out ok, not really what I had in my head but the checkerboard look worked. I made it around midnight the night before so I really didnt want to go crazy and then mess it up. It's a little too simple looking, but none of the other fondant accessories I had planned had worked right. Also, I used my new black foil cupcake liners, they are so fancy. And mixed with the blue gingham cupcake wrappers, really made it match with the Alice theme.
I know it's only February, but I am already getting swamped with orders for weddings. It is a great time to get married now. Almost everyone is doing a DIY wedding, and with so many options out there, it's easy to see why! It doesn't even matter if your on a budget or not- everyone wants their wedding to be uniques and as special as it can be. With that said, I am working on a pinwheel wedding. I am so excited for it! I have made alot of pinwheels for weddings- for cupcake toppers, but finally I get to make bridesmaid pinwheel bouquets! I will definatly show photos when they are done, maybe I can get some from the actual wedding?
Here is my new favorite fancy cupcake liners for weddings, they are called "Elenor Black" so pretty!
So my birthday was yesterday, and I just didn't feel like making cupcakes even though I really wanted some. Today ended up being a total snow day, everything is closed, I mean EVERYTHING! You would think we never had snow before. So I decided it was time to make some Valentine's cupcakes..only I had one problem. Nothing is open, I wasn't going to shovel snow anyway, but I have no ingredients ;( My husbands idea, use a can of soda. Hmmmm What are you talking about? I forgot that he actually told me about this awhile ago, but I didn't need the info then. So I take a box of cake mix (I had red velvet,so appropriate) and a can of soda. mix together and bake! No eggs, no vegetable oil. Just soda! Take a sip or 2 of the soda first, then use the rest. So now its vegan! Also, it turned out to be one of the best cupcakes ever! The batter tasted like Dr. Pepper...haha YUMMY~
Also, I have been working on some new custom wedding cupcake toppers, so I took some photos of it with the cupcakes. Buy them in my store!
It has been far too long since I wrote anything on here. To tell you the truth, I forgot my email and password to log into my account. So things have been super busy here. I have been working alot on my stores.. I have a ton of new cupcake products, including alot of cupcake liners in bulk! Perfect for bakers who are tired of the boring white baking cups! Anyway, here are a few pics. My handmade butterfly cupcake toppers, perfect for weddings. Doing a DIY wedding? I would LOVE to make custom ones. I love these butterflies. I think they look so elegant. Anyway, I have nonperils too and new sprinkles, and new GINHAM cupcake liners! I am totally in love.
I just wanted to share some of my new sugar cookies I made to show off the cookie cutters I have for sale. Along with all the decorating stuff you need to make these! You can buy it all! And I have to say, I really didn't want to eat the cookies after decorating them, but I am sure glad I did....They were the best tasting cookies I ever had! The royal icing and all the decorations, really make the cookies that much yummier. The dress cookie cutter is part of the "princess" cookie cutter set.

I can't believe I saw this! Actually my little guy pointed it out when we were coming out of the car into the house. I never heard of such a thing, and when I asked my family, none of them have heard of it before either...so I googled it. You should too, it's so amazing, and rare!
