Vineyard Wedding, SDSU Graduation, & 27th Birthday Cupcakes!

It's wedding season! San Diego is the perfect place to have a wedding. The weather here is incredible & there are so many amazing venues that offer spectacular views  for an unforgettable day!

Orfila Vineyard, in Escondido (North County) offers incredible wedding packages with breathtaking views. It's the perfect place to have a wedding & I was so thrilled to cater a wedding there this past weekend. The weather was perfect, with a light & cool breeze & beautiful sunset. The bride and groom chose to have a mini cupcake display along with a top tier cake for the cake cutting ceremony. They chose four amazing and unique flavors & asked me to create a little "robot" cake topper for them. The cake flavor they chose was Morning Glory-a lemon, blueberry, & ricotta cheese cake. It is the perfect Summertime flavor! The display looked amazing & the wedding was a success!

Fresh bluberries, simmered in a sugar syrup then mascerated in
the sugar syrup for several hours at room temperature until
tender and deep in purple color

Plump lemons, perfect for baking!

I LOVE the scent of fresh lemon zest!

Juicy, D'Anjou and Bosc Pears ready to be peeled, chopped,
pureed, and baked into White Chocolate Pear cupcakes!

Here they are! One of our TOP fruity flavors! The frosting is a
white chocolate, cream cheese & pear frosting with
pieces of toffee mixed delish!

One of my favorite flavors and always a hit!

Creamy, light, yet full of flavor! These lemon, bluberry,
and ricotta cheese cupcakes are sure to please anyone's palate:)

This cupcake truly tastes like the classic drink! I have worked on
this flavor for quite awhile, trying to master it & finally found the
perfect blend of ingredients. It is truly amazing!

And here are the robots! Aren't they just adorable?! The photo that
the bride & groom had initially sent me had the robots in white. The couple asked
me to make them in silver and I even added a couple different touches
of my own! I embellished the heart of one of the robots in silver edible
dragees to distinguish between the female & male robot. I also criss-crossed
the power cords of the headphones, so that they appeared as though
they were listening to each other's hearts! You know...the music of the heart;)

TA-DAHHH! The gorgeous cupcake & cake display! This tower
looked beautiful at this venue, especially under the large, white tent with the view
of the mountains in the back. I am hoping to obtain some professional
photos of the display so you can actually see the spectacular mountainous view:)

The day after the wedding, I filled a couple different orders. One of them was for an
SDSU graduate. The order was for French Toast Cupcakes, Cookies N Cream, and Aloha-
ALL really great choices. I was told that the Cookies N Cream cupcakes were gone quickly!
Yes, I know it says SUSD below. I caught that a bit too late. I ended up switching the
placement of the cupcakes but after the picture was taken, lol!:)

The order below was for a 27th birthday. The flavors were Raspberry
Champagne and French Toast. I customized a few of the cupcakes
in purple (the birthday girl's favorite color) and added some
girly touches to the mix!

This butterfly cupcake was one of my favs:) Adorable don't you think?!

Well everyone, I better run. I need to get started on another wedding order for this weekend! Thank you for stopping by and check back soon:)

June Flavor of the Month!

Hey Everyone! Happy June:) Summer is just about here (June 21st to be exact) and wedding season is in full affect. This past week, I was inspired to create a raspberry & champagne flavored cupcake, and oh my goodness is it heavenly!! Soo moist, light, fluffy, fruity and the absolute PERFECT summer time treat! My testers have already agreed it will be a hit...especially at weddings!

Start off with freshly pureed raspberries...

No food coloring is added in these cupcakes...dyed naturally pink from the
deep raspberry color and garnished with edible gold hearts<3

The result?! PERFECTION!

This Sunday (June 12th), I am including these lucious cupcakes in my June cupcake variety box! There are just TWO days left to place your order for a half dozen minis ($9) or one dozen minis ($18). Each box will contain four different flavors! The flavors I chose for this month are:

  • Mexican Vanilla Bean
  • Aloha (mango, pineapple, coconut)
  • The Elvis (peanut butter & banana)
  • Raspberry Champange
Orders must be placed no later than Thursday, June 9th at 7pm. Deliveries & pick-up will be scheduled for after 230pm. I will be contacting those that have ordered, within the next few days to arrange delivery times. For more details about the mini cupcake variety box, please contact us at: OR (858) 610-6500.

Have a great week everyone!

Lucious Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes + Celebrations Galore!

Over the past few weeks, we had quite a few orders for birthday cupcakes! A lot of them were customized cupcakes & they were so much fun to create! We had everything from a tropical theme to Princess & Mario Brother's cupcakes. Some of these themes I've have done in the past so it was fun to re-create them & to even add a few new designs to the mix!

Here is a tropical theme that I had a couple weeks ago. The order was for a dozen, Aloha cupcakes with various tropical/beachy themed decorations. I loved making the flowers, and the surf board was a first for me, so I definitely had a little fun with that!
