peanut butter paradise :)

Peanut butter + chocolate = LOVE!

While scouring the internet for a little inspiration I happened upon my new favourite blog, Fairytale Frosting. It is cute and quirky and has tons of yummy recipes. When I saw peanutbutter cup cupcakes it was love at first sight! I am a peanutbutter and choc-a-holic! So, of course, I had to try them out! They are chocolate cupcakes with Reeses peanutbutter cups baked inside and topped with a generous amount of the most delicious peanutbutter icing. SO delish!!

Check out Fairytale Frosting for this and many other fantastic recipes :)

flower power

These cupcakes were created for a client of a new friend, Aimee. The fabulous Aimee, event designer extraordinaire, is the owner of Devoted to Decorating. Check out her website here (its a work in progress so check back often!). I met Aimee this summer when she contacted me about sweet treats for her events. I won her over with cupcakes (of course!!). We have a few creative ventures coming up including a super cool wedding photo shoot at the end of the month. Stay tuned for that!

These cupcakes were lemon (a new, even more delicious recipe!) with vanilla buttercream icing. The only instruction I had for these cupcake was "flower garden theme" so I hope they were a hit! I love full creative license!!

Thanks Aimee!!

congrats rachel and miles!!

Last weekend was Rachel and Miles' big day! The weather was great and it was a perfect day for a wedding :) I set up at their venue later in the afternoon and it was great to see so many of their friends and family pitching in to get things just right!

Rachel and Miles' wedding colours were light pink and white so they decided on vanilla cupcakes, half with white vanilla whipped icing and half with pink vanilla buttercream icing. They were topped off with tiny pink and white candy pearls. The tower was the same one I used at my wedding (available for rent!) with pink ribbon. My favourite part of setting up at weddings is when I hear people around me talking about how good the cupcakes smell! They definitely fill the venue with a sweet and delicious smell!!

Congrats Rachel and Miles! I hope you enjoyed your day and the cupcakes!!

old skool tats ;) FUN!!! Last weekend was a *very important* birthday for my friend, Jaclyn's, sister, Marcy. And this birthday came with a special request for some old school tattoo cookies. Marcy is a tattoo artist at South of Heaven tattoo shop so it only made sense! I have to say that I am definitely not an expert in tattoo art but sugar cookie art I can do! Haha! I think they turned out awesome and, from what I hear, were a hit at the party :)

Thanks Jaclyn and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARCY!!! I'll come see you when I get up enough nerve for my first tattoo! lol

pretty flowers

These pretty cupcakes were created for Marlie for a 60th birthday party. I experimented with painting my fondant flowers with food coloruring for the first time and I was very excited with the results! It definitely gives them a more realistic and delicious look!

Marlie's cupcakes were red velvet ( favourite!!) with buttercream icing and fondant flowers and numbers. I hope you enjoyed them Marlie!
