Princess Cupcakes & Wedding Fun!

This past week was a little crazy with several orders for princess themed cupcakes & cakes, a mini wedding reception for my good friend, Amy and some last minute orders for the popular, Burgundy Velvet & TARAmisu! A lot of preparation went into the designing of the decorations & they all turned out amazing!

The first customized order I had was for three dozen standard cupcakes, all decorated "girly" in purple & pink, with some princess embellishments. I decided to add a crown for just the princess herself;) Pearls & flowers were a must for these cupcakes!!!

Man Power, a staffing agency located in Sorrento Mesa, ordered a few dozen cupcakes for a baby shower they threw for an employee at their facility. They ordered three of our top flavors: Burgundy Velvet, TARAmisu, & Mexican Vanilla Bean, with some of the cupcakes decorated to fit the "baby girl" theme. My favorite cupcakes were the ones with the little pink & yellow baby feet:)


Here's a look at a few of the other orders we had over the past week...


Another "princess/fairy tale" themed order I had was for the birthday of a little girl turning six. I especially enjoyed sculpting the little dragons & sword from fondant. I'm sure these fire breathing dragons brought smiles to many faces:)

My last, "princess" themed order was for another birthday for a little girl who wanted a princess crown on top of her cake. The family ordered a dozen of our scrumptious Strawberries N Cream cupcakes, along with a 4" round chocolate cake, customized especially for the princess herself:) I was more than thrilled with how the crown turned out & it looked amazing on top of the cake!

My good friend, Amy & her fiance Will, wed in a small private ceremony with just family present on Thursday, February 24th, 2011! Congratulations to the beautiful couple! Their big wedding ceremony/celebration will be held in Costa Rica in mid March & I am more than excited & honored to be apart of the wedding party and take part in their celebration.

For their private ceremony here in San Diego, they asked me to cater their reception and of COURSE I was more than thrilled! The order was for eight dozen minis, plus a small, two tiered Chambord & Chocolate cake. The groom is a pilot & on their first date, Will flew Amy to Los Angeles (from San Diego) for lunch! Now THAT is real date!!! Great job Will;) Amy requested to have a plane as their cake topper & I decided to sculpt a small, white plane from fondant. I added a couple of B's on the plane,(last name is Becker) & I think it looked amazing on top of the cake...very unique!


And now, I am soo proud to announce the March flavor of the month! White Chocolate Pear! I have been dying to create this flavor for awhile. This cupcake is truly amazing! The cupcake is made with two different types of pears and premium korintje cinnamon. It's topped with a pear, white chocolate & cream cheese frosting with toffee bits mixed into the frosting, for added crunch! Initially, I was planning on adding the toffee to the cupcake, which would then melt when baking & blend nicely with the pear & cinnamon flavors. I completely forgot to add the toffee pieces until realizing after I had already put the cupcakes into the oven! My amazing assistant, Melissa, mentioned that we should add the toffee to the frosting for added crunch! Genius idea! I ended up loving the texture & taste and decided to keep it that way! I encourage you all to try out this amazing flavor! How about a little incentive...20% off your first order of our White Chocolate Pear cupcakes OR buy three dozen of any flavor & receive one free dozen of our White Chocolate Pear! Offer expires March 31st, 2011. I am confident, you all will be truly pleased:)

Have a wonderful week everyone! We have some exciting news to share with you all but unfortunately, we are unable to disclose any information for the next couple of months! Looking forward to a prosperous & productive Spring season!

God Bless & happy cupcaking!!
