Sweet Deliciousness

As promised (though a little behind schedule), here are some photos of my recent cupcake adventures.

First stop was my chocolate cupcakes topped with mint buttercream and garnished with sugar pearls.  This batch was an order for a friend. And Sam found out this was his favorite flavor (thus far).

Of the remaining cupcakes from this batch, I gave 6 to my trainer for is birthday and the rest came with me to my desk.  I saw desk because these 6 didn’t make it to the kitchen before they had been devoured by co-workers.  These were garnished with cookie bits.

My friend who ordered the batch above inadvertently got me my first order by an unknown (as in a stranger to me).  She ordered a dozen for her granddaughter’s 10th birthday. She wanted light pink, raspberry flavored icing, and the sugar pearls.  This didn’t leave me a lot of room for creativity, but I managed to make them look beautiful! The rose topped cake is for the birthday girl.

Last Friday was the last day for a co-worker in our Florida office. To celebrate (his new move), I brought in spice cupcakes topped with a pumpkin buttercream (now Sam’s favorite cupcake).
