Cupcakes for Family Dinner:Happy birthday Roxana again! Today is Roxana's actual birthday and this lucky girl gets more cupcakes to celebrate her special day with friends and family. Her favorite animal are the flamingos, and so from this cupcake book that my boss got me, there's flamingos and alligators! So I made french vanilla flamingos for her and all the girls, and alligators for the boys. Later she's going to have a small family dinner and Roxana's other interest is music, so I made cupcakes with musical notes, treble and base clefs, and piano keys! I also would like to give special thanks to my fantastic assistant, my sister Jennifer, for helping me with these awesome animal cupcakes!!
The flamingos are made out of thin pretzels dipped in pink chocolate for the neck, and I used pink chocolate to attach the bubble gum jelly beans for the head and 3/4 length banana runtz for the beak. I then piped melted chocolate for the wings. The body was frosted with buttercream and coated with pink sugar crystals. The alligators' heads were made up of nutter butters that were chopped to size, frosted with buttercream, and dipped in green sugar crystals. I then piped on the jaggedly fierce teeth, eyes and nose with buttercream. The eyes are made of green fruit loops cereal! This project was quite fun to do because of all the leftover candy and nutter butters that I got to eat =P. mhmmm.... The musical cupcakes had buttercream frosting on them as well with fondant decorations. Once again, happy 5th birthday Roxana!

Happy Anniversary Khoa, I love you more than words can describe. You light up my life and soul and you bring me such happiness. I am truly a lucky girl to have you as my husband, best friend, and soul mate. What did one light bulb say to the other? I love you a whole watt!! =) The Lovely Love Theorem states to love someone is madness, to be loved by someone is a gift, loving someone who loves you is a duty, but being loved by someone whom you love is life! Thank you honey for giving me the best life ever! I love you forever and a half!!! <3

Happy 5th Birthday Roxana! This was probably my biggest order yet with such a fun and creative theme of Science! We came up with 5 different type of designs, DNA strands, atoms, H2O, CO2, and brains, and we included the birthday girl's favorite colors of pink, purple, yellow, red, and white! This was my biggest order yet, a production of 96 standard size cupcakes and 24 mini cupcakes, flavors include vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet with buttercream! that's 120 total cupcakes, wow! All the decorations are made of fondant, edible pearls, with some buttercream piping. This was definitely a grand production for a very special girl!
Also, special thanks to my lovely assistant Sarah who really helped me with the big project! Special thanks to Jack for keeping Khoa company, and to Luna for always being so cute and supportive =). So what's a fun science kid birthday party without some fun science jokes? From way down in my cranium, this prediction I will make: That if you eat uranium, you'll get atomic ache! hehe, also, what is Ba(Na)2? Banana! =) Oh and did you hear about the man who was reading a Helium book and couldn't put it down? hahaha, I love my corny jokes I find online....haha. Anyways, stay tuned next week for some more surprises for this Roxana's birthday celebration!
