Butterfies, Lady Bugs, Trucks, & Much Much More!

It's been a couple weeks since i've last blogged...been quite busy with baby showers, samplings, & birthday cupcakes! I've also been working on a new idea for my business...a cupcake hostess party! A cupcake hostess will come out to your child's birthday party & provide a hands-on decorating lesson for cupcakes & aprons! We offer three different party packages which will include everything from cupcakes & a wide assortment of decorations, frostings, and piping bags! Also included: pizza, drinks, birthday cake or cupcakes, aprons & paints for the kids to decorate & take home, party bags, and a special birthday crown or Cupcake Corner t-shirt for the birthday celebrant! A fun & affordable way to celebrate your child's special birthday! Please inquire for more party details!

I met with a few clients over the past couple of weeks for some samplings for future large events. Everything from our TARAmisu & Peanut Butter Cup to Coconut & Lemondrop! For questions about samplings please inquire for more details!

My friend, Caren had a birthday on the 2nd, and I wanted to make her some special cupcakes since she has always been a big supporter of the Cupcake Corner from the very beginning! I made her my Cookies N Cream, and customized a few of the cupcakes with pink, white, and gold decorations. Caren loooves pink! She mentioned Cookies N Cream is now her favorite flavor:)

One of my favorite orders this past week was for Lady Bug & Butterfly cupcakes! I loooove lady bugs & butterflies and have been wanting to make butterfly themed cupcakes for awhile! The client ordered our Classic Yellow cake...half with Chocolate frosting & half with Pink Lemonade frosting.

On Friday the 11th, I had a fun order for Truck Themed birthday cupcakes for a little boy turning 3. I made a variety of different trucks including: monster trucks, a tractor, firetruck, and a garbage truck. The cupcakes were made from whole wheat flour and reduced sugar. They were delicious and flavorful:)

On Saturday, I had two baby shower of them for my sister-in-law's shower. The first order was for four dozen simple & cute jungle themed cupcakes for a baby boy. My favorite was the little elephant:)

For my sister-In-law, Valerie's shower, I decided to stick to only a few different colors and since there was no specific theme, I made a variety of baby decorations. Valerie chose Orange Cream for the flavor and I made baby foot prints, baby bottles, rattles, and a few other cute, baby decorations. My favorites were the baby rattles & baby foot prints:) The shower was a success and the food was delicious!

Another fabulous couple of weeks for The Cupcake Corner! I have a couple more orders lined up for this upcoming week and then it's off to Costa Rica late Wednesday night for a week for my good friend, Amy's wedding! There's still time to place your order for St. Patrick's day cupcakes if you want them by Wednesday afternoon, just before St. Patrick's Day on thursday the 17th! Otherwise, we will not be taking any orders from Thursday the 17th THROUGH Tuesday the 22nd. For order inquires, please email us and we will respond before Thursday the 17th or after Tuesday, the 22nd!

Have a wonderful week & check back Wednesday evening to see Laker's themed & Knick's themed cupcakes!

Happy Cupcaking!
