Designer Cupcakes

Happy Anniversary An and Linda! My brother-in-law, An, wanted to do something special for his girlfriend Linda for their 4 year anniversary, and so he thought it would be great to make some designer bags and stuff since she loves to shop with class! So I made apple cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, topped with fondant decorated designer bags, clutches, and heels. The three brands I chose to make were Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Gucci, and I had the help of my wonderful assistant, who is also my sister Jennifer, in giving me information on how the different styles should look! She also did a fantastic job making the clutches, flowers, and painting of the logos. These cupcakes were a great deal of fun to make and will surely satisfy any fashionista's sweet tooth! My sister's boyfriend suggested I charge big money for these cupcakes since they're designer cupcakes...that's not such a bad idea don't you think? haha! Anyways, these are expensive tasting cupcakes that for sure won't put a hole in your wallet! Enjoy your anniversary guys! Congrats!

Angie in Wonderland

Happy Birthday Angie! So Angie's boyfriend, Kid, wanted to surprise her with Alice in Wonderland themed cupcakes for her birthday and since I made some before, I knew just what to do. I added the Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum cupcake as well and it adds a nice variety to the group characters. These are red velvet cupcakes with basic buttercream frosting on them. Angie I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Happy Birthday Gay

Whooaa.....it looks like a TRIPLE RAINBOW! So intense... haha! So anyways, it's Drexelle's mother's birthday today, who's name is Gay, and she thought it would be great to make it a play on words with her name since Gay always has a great sense of humor with that. So instead of saying "Happy Birthday", Drexelle cleverly thought to make the cakes say "Happy Gay Day"! Afterall, it is her day! So she wanted me to have the cupcakes be rainbow themed and so I made french vanilla cupcakes that are rainbow colors in the batter, and some chocolate cupcakes topped with basic buttercream. The rainbow themselves, the flags, flower petals, and letters (props to my hubby Khoa and partner in cakes) are made of fondant and the cupcakes with rainbows on them have some white sprinkles around the edge. Working with all the colors was a blast and just looking at the end result can put a smile on anyone's face! So one thing's for sure and that is that Gay is going to have a very happy birthday today! Pop quiz: So what kind of bow can't you tie? A rainbow!! haha, anyways, I think everyone can literally taste the rainbow with these sweeties! Happy Birthday Gay!

Birthday Trio



My work was celebrating not, one, or two, but THREE birthdays this month! So I made 3 different themed cupcakes to fit their different personalities. All these cupcakes are chocolate with basic buttercream frosting and all the decorations are made out of fondant, but for flower stamens, those aren't edible, same with the metallic pearls, but the pearlize white ones are edible.

For Andrea's cupcakes, her favorite Disney character is Tinkerbell, so I made the Tinkerbell slippers, her magic wand, and fairy wings. I brushed on some silver luster dust on the slippers for some magical touch to it as well. For Audrey's cupcakes, she is also a Disney fanatic and her favorite characters are Bambi and Thumper. However, when trying to portray any well known and recognizable classic Disney characters, you must be SPOT-ON with your design otherwise it won't look right. So instead of trying to go on that route, I went with the symbolism route and stuck Bambi and Thumper into the cupcakes with Bambi's tail sticking out, and depicted the popular butterfly on his tail. As for Thumper, the scene I remember most about his is his large thumping feet and him being in the flower bed.

For Jacob's cupcakes, he is the most different from the two, and his biggest hobby currently is playing World of Warcraft (WOW)...and he had a long history of being part of the Alliance, but then became a traitor apparently and join the Hord! All you WOW fans out there, please go easy on my with my designs for this because I am a "noob" when it comes to these games...haha. But here they are, the simplified logos for the Alliance (the yellow and blue logo) and Hord the red one), and xBox 360 game controllers because he really wants one, so hopefully this will get him that much closer to getting one =).

Roger's Birthday Pie Cupcakes

Happy Birthday Roj Poj! So since his favorite pastry is Apple Pie, I decided to make Chi Hai's super yummy Apple Cake recipe for these pie cupcakes! The cakes have a cinnamon walnut crust on top that adds a delicious texture to the cupcake and when decorated, it looks like cool pecan pie or something. For half of these cupcakes I put raspberry jam on top to make it looke like a raspberry or cherry pie for variation. The cupcakes have buttercream piping on top to make it look like the pie crust as well, and I figured the balance for this cupcake works out pretty well since you don't need frosting for this recipe. So less is more! Anyways, happy birthday Roger! I hope your day is pie-tastic!

Under the Sea Cupcakes

Happy Sweet 16th Birthday Sarah! For someone who loves chocolate and has a big sweet tooth, she'll surely be satisfied with these under the sea marble white chocolate and milk chocolate shells, starfish, and fishes! Dolphins are Sarah's favorite so I got these cake topper dolphins for keepsakes! I love themed cupcakes and I had bubbles of fun making these for my coworker's daughter. The seaweed, star, and "16" are all made out of fondant, while the cupcakes are chocolate flavors topped with basic buttercream. Put on your flippers and don't be afraid to make a splash with your sweet creations! There's so many things you can do with chocolate and pastries, so grab your fins and get creative! Don't let the waves pass you by! Don't forget to bring your sweet tooth! =) Once again, Happy Birthday Sarah! I hope you have a great time celebrating!
