My oven has been ridiculously busy lately. I don't know what it is but the last 2 weeks have been absolutely filled with CUPCAKES. I mean I know I love cupcakes, and I feature a lot of them on here anyway, but wow...this is a whole new level.
Vanilla PB with Fondant Hearts
All in a Row...or Rows?
I have had a lot of orders & events, which is fun, but stressful too...because I am anal with a capital A when it comes to these goodies, so baking for experimental purposes or to feed a craving (chocolate?!) is one thing but when I am creating something for a special event...I get way detailed.
Malted Chocolate Vanilla
Vanilla PB For a Shower
Decorated w/Choco Sunflower Seeds. It's a BOY!
Last weekend we also celebrated my better half's 40th birthday. His real birthday is tomorrow, August 8. I made red velvet & vanilla peanut butter cuppies(his fave) for the party...where we rented out a private room in a fun New Orleans bar/lounge place and had a rousing good time with 25 of our closest pals. Lots of incriminating photos too many shots later, but I will spare you all and post a cute one below.
Red Velvet w/Sugar Hearts
His Fave..Vanilla PB w/Malted Choco Buttercream
Non Food Photo Alert: The Birthday Boy & Lovely Wife (HA!)
I did some shower cuppies last nite. Tonite, I did 5 dozen minis for a birthday tomorrow. Saturday I have 2 dozen...oh and a 1 year birthday AND a wedding to attend. Next Wed and Saturday I have a few dozen as well.
Experimental Malt Ball Cupcakes
And then the last 2 weeks of the month, I have a sweet lady who wants me to do her kids' bday parties...but she doesn't just want cupcakes. She wants cakes too. CAKES? I'm a cupcaker! But how do I say no? Better hone those caking skills. Anyone wanna come help? I pay in CAKE.
Lots and Lots of... Stacked... Cuppies.
