Shanelle and Michael's Wedding!

Her colors were navy, so we did a navy ribbon around each tier of the stand and navy cupcake liners!

We did natural decorations for each cupcake, white sprinkles for the vanilla, a dash of cinnamon on the carrot cake, red velvet crumbles and chocolate chips on the vanilla chip cupcakes!!

And a big cupcake for the newlyweds!

This couple was so adorable, so laid back and completely in love! I was so happy that they asked me to be a part of their special day. They were married in Huntington Beach at an equestrian center...gorgeous! She paid so much attention to details; the place cards were attached by a hat pin to bright green apples. I loved it! There were so many other fabulous details, but I just don't have the time to blog about them all!

It was a hot day and I was a little worried about the cupcakes melting...the first time I've ever been so worried! I just wanted everything to be perfect for them! But they said that the cupcakes were a hit, so...big sigh of relief!

Have a great time on your honeymoon guys!

Aidan's Star Filled Birthday Bash!

The whole Shabang!
We did 8 different color stars!!

A cake perfect for tearing into!
A big cupcake just for Mr. Aidan!

One of my best friend's son turned one this week and we made some awesome cupcakes to help celebrate! It was one of the first parties I was worried about the sun melting the cupcakes, but I stole one on the way out and they still tasted super delish, just a little warm!

It was a great party, she had every detail dialed in. She gave me lots of ideas for when I start planning Charlotte's first Birthday...she's only 4 months so I have lots of time to plan!!

Happy 1st Birthday Aidan!!

A Doggy Cake!

I got a phone call from a gal I used to work with who was throwing a party for her little pooch and she wanted me to make a dog friendly cake! I thought it was such a fun idea and was excited to work on it! I made the cake with no sugar or artificial flavors and it had ingredients like beef jerky and meaty baby food! I "frosted" it with peanut butter and beggin' strips! It smelled awful while baking! But I hope the little pup loved it!

I also made some cupcakes for human consumption, so everyone could enjoy Winston's first birthday!

Boy was it a busy weekend! No rest for the weary though...I have a wedding this weekend and a 1st birthday party for my friend's son, Aidan and a baby shower on Wednesday...yikes! I need a nap already!

Have a great week everyone!!
