The best part........

.......... besides eating tons of cupcakes is decorating them ! I still get a bit of a thrill when I finish baking the cupcakes and making the frosting, because then comes the art. How to design all these little mini cakes? I love choosing which color and flavor will end up on each cupcake. This is a little snippet of how it all goes down~

that will end up on ........

.....this classic size cupcake.~

.....topped with mini chocolate chips and a candy pine tree and garden knome. I couldn't resist buying these candy shaped knomes. They're so cute. (Any 'Amelie' lovers?)

Birthday at the Uptown

These pictures were taken at the Uptown for my friend Jessica's Birthday!
I made chocolate raspberry cupcakes & a new flavor- "birthday cupcakes" (buttermilk cake w/ fudgy chocolate frosting). The guys in the photos started attacking the cupcakes- no joke. It was hilarious! I took that as a good sign.
