Alice in Wonderland Birthday Tea Party

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.

DIY Weddings

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!

Snow Day!

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!

New cupcake goodies

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.
