baby, it's cold outside

One week 'till Christmas and the parties are in full swing. Last night Gerardo and I went to Cori and Stephen's for a little Christmas cheer. Of course I put myself on cupcake duty! They are awesome friends and Cori certainly outdid herself on the domestic front!

As much as I love all things red and green I am all about the winter theme this year. Everything blue, white, icy and shimmering. The inspiration for these cupcakes came from a picture I saw on the Martha Stewart website. Of course I can't find the picture there anymore but it was a cake covered in pretty little snowflakes. The cupcakes are vanilla with almond buttercream icing, the snowflakes made from white chocolate with edible silver balls. I think they're pretty cute!

And who doesn't love mini cupcakes?! I made these bite size treats as an early Christmas gift for a friend with a sweet tooth! They are also vanilla with almond buttercream icing and topped off with blue sugar.

Delicious! Enjoy!

number one

Hello! Welcome to my new website and very first blog!! I have to admit I am pretty excited about this whole cupcake blogging thing. As much as I love making cupcakes the best part is truly in the sharing. Soooo...what a great idea! Not only do I get to make cupcakes but now I get to share them with a (hopefully!) larger audience. As my friends and family all know I am in love with cupcakes. I make them every chance I get and haven't heard any complaints yet! Starting a cupcake business of sorts really is marrying my love for baking, and feeding people, with my craftier, detail-orientated side.

So, here's the plan...yes I'm a planner!! I have a lot of wonderful cupcake pictures to share from previous celebrations. In an attempt to fill my blog with as many pictures as possible I will try to get them all up over the next week or so. After all what is a cupcake blog without pictures?! With the holidays quickly approaching I will do my best! I really do hope you enjoy taking this journey with me and maybe, just maybe, you will feel inspired to create your own edible masterpieces!

Try to stay warm out there!!
