Birthday Decorating Fun!

Happy 12th Birthday Sohini! This month Sohini turned 12 and I was happy to help her celebrate!

I was privileged to be ask to come to her birthday party and teach her and her friends how to decorate cupcakes. I thought it would be great fun and a great opportunity to spread the cupcaking love. So I went to this 'girls only' party and taught 8 rambunctious girls how to decorate cupcakes.

First I talked to them about their feelings on fondant. There was a unanimous agreement that fondant is gross and should be avoided! These girls learn fast. They frosted two cupcakes each, and the first one we decorated into a flower. What better way to make a flower than with marshmallows and sprinkles!

The girls were extremely creative and made some fantastic flowers, that were spring worthy!

Here's the Birthday Girl's beautiful spring flowers!

Some girls mixed it up. They used big marshmallows and little ones!

Our next cupcake was an Easter Bunny! Who doesn't love a cute little bunny with a sweet frosting face and fluffy marshmallow ears?

This was the most talkative group of girls I have ever met!

Well apparently Josie likes her bunnies scary. Hers was slightly mutilated.

But at least the rest of the girls like the cute kind.

Sohini might have a future in the cupcake decorating business.

They were extremely creative, and started making some baby bunnies as well.

These girls learn fast!

Overall, the girls were a lot of fun! We had a great time decorating cupcakes, eating sprinkles and licking up frosting!

Hope this is a Birthday Sohini will never forget!

Pretty in Pink and Oh-So Cupcake Sweet!

It's been awhile since I've blogged, so I figured I would start with a post about baby girls.... what's better than that?

My cousin Charlie Ann is expecting her first child in April. This little girl is going to be cover in pink from head-to-toe! We had a very girlie baby shower for her this February that coinsided with Valentine's Day. So naturally I made pink heart cupcakes and a little extra surprise.

Usually everyone gets a diaper cake at their shower. So since I only do cupcakes, I thought it would be good to roll up some onesies and things in the shape of a cupcake. Then wrap it in tissue paper, to make it look like one!

Take a look at our girlie fun and pink party!

Pink bows, and bibs....

Flowers and books...

White Chocolate hearts with extra Pink Frosting!

Pink Frosting is the best frosting!!

Here's Charlie Ann's Onesie Cupcake I made for her!

There is even a cherry on top!

Charlie loved it! She unwrapped it to find: onesies in all sizes and colors, socks, formula container and binkies!

This Disney Princess claw-footed baby tub is probably the most amazing thing I have ever seen!! Little Rylee will have to thank Aunt Amy for this gift!

All the Girl Cousins!

We all can't wait to meet baby Rylee! We wish Charlie Ann good luck!

"Take a sprinkling of fairy dust, an angel's single feather, also a dash of love and care. Then mix them both together. Add a sentiment or two,
a thoughtful wish or line, a touch of stardust, a ray of sunshine... Its a recipe, for a Baby Girl truly fine."
