Bridal Shower Cupcakes {My First One!}

These last three weeks were a blur! Seriously!! I don't think I had made these many cakes ever but at the same time is exciting and makes me feel super grateful to have some repeat client-friends. On top of that, May in general is a busy month in our household... It's both of my in-law's birthdays, plus MY birthday and Mother's Day -yes, poor hubby!!! We had a wonderful celebration and this mama got spoiled with a new iPad... YAY! So Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms who follow this blog. What a privilege to be a mom and hope you all got loved as you all deserve it :).
So back to cakes... My sweet neighbor Ms Tammy contacted me about making 50 cupcakes for a bridal shower based on a design from Cottons & Crumbs. I love, love their vintage designs so I quickly said yes to the opportunity. So below are few pictures of the design:

You can check out the inspirational picture from Cottons and Crumbs that Ms Tammy sent me here. Everything is completely edible and all the roses were hand made. What do you think? I hope you love them because I sure did :)!! I was really happy with the results.
Remember, I still have a couple more posts and I think you are going to love my shark cake. It turned out awesome!

Lego Cake {Austin & Micah}

Oh my! April came and went fast. Really, really fast! Between the kids sport activities, a demanding job, birthday parties, etc; it feels like there is barely any time left to sit down and do some posting. Anyway, to those who check regularly this blog, thank you for still stopping by!
My sweet friend Jonna's twin boys had a birthday party in April and she asked me if I wanted to make a Lego cake for them. This was my very first attempt at making one, so please excuse the lack of symmetry or perfect straight lines. The boys LOVED their cake, and at the end, that's what matters :)...

I used Satin Ice fondant and I really liked all the bright tones ( I didn't have to add any coloring). It worked out great for the theme! Happy Birthday Micah and Austin. Our family was really happy to be part of your very special day :) and thanks to my friend Jonna for trusting me again!
I've some exciting posts coming in the next couple of weeks. They include 50 amazing bridal shower cupcakes inspired by Cotton and Crumbs' AMAZING work from England, a shark cake (any shark fans out there?) and firefighter theme cakes/cupcakes for my wonderful friend Danyelle's twin boys. I'm so excited!!!
I hope all my wonderful mommy friends have a very special and blessed Mother's day. This weekend is extra special since it's my birthday as well... YAY! I really love birthdays!!!!
