Birthdays, Showers, and a Grand Opening for Beauty By Dolly!

What a fun & eventful past couple of weeks it has been for The Cupcake Corner! In addition to the orders that were filled, I worked on the April flavor of the month: CAFE AU COCONUT. This was inspired by the coffee that my assistant, Melissa and I drank in Costa Rica at the Anamya Resort. Every morning, we woke up to freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee that was served with whole coconut milk. I was a little skeptical at first but boy oh boy was it delicious! I have been drinking my coffee with coconut milk everyday since! Simply put....Heaven in a cup!

When we returned from Costa Rica, Melissa suggested that I create a cupcake inspired by this creamy & delicious drink and call it, Cafe Au Coconut....and that is exactly what I decided to do. I went right to work in the kitchen and concocted the most delectable, light, and creamy cupcakes! I decided to make this flavor my April flavor of the month!

For the entire month of April, receive 15% off any first order of Cafe Au Coconut! You must mention the blog offer in order to receive the discount!

One of the orders I worked on over the past couple of weeks was for the 6th birthday of a little girl, who celebrated her birthday at Pump it Up in Poway. She wanted a simple, whimsical theme with hearts & flowers in pink and purple. The order was for four dozen minis and a personal, customized 4" round cake. The cupcakes & cake were thoroughly enjoyed by all with NONE leftover!:)

The next order was for the birthday of another little girl. The family ordered Nutterbutter (one of my favs!), Burgundy Velvet, and White Chocolate Pear. The cupcakes were well-loved by everyone and completely devoured!

Last Saturday I had an order for customized baby shower cupcakes. The flavor requested was our luscious Chocolicious with Mexican Vanilla Bean frosting. The colors of the baby shower were neon green & a bright blue. I designed a few bibs, milk bottles, rattles, and baby boy fondant decorations. They turned out suuuuper cute and everyone was very pleased with the order:)

I also customized some TARAmisu & Mexican Vanilla Bean cupcakes for a bridal shower order  that was held on Sunday. The bridal shower was held in Orange County and the cupcakes made it there safely! They were loved by all the ladies and some even went back for seconds. TARAmisu seemed to be the hit of the party!

Another order I had for Sunday, was for 12 dozen minis! The cupcakes were for a salon opening event in Hillcrest for Beauty By Dolly. The event had a great turn-out and the cupcakes were thoroughly enjoyed! 50% of the salon proceeds went towards Japan tsunami & earthquake relief.

Well, that's a wrap! Off to work on another customized order:) Look out for our customized mini cupcake Easter basket!:)
