No TWD ... Cupcakes Galore!!



So yeah...I could not get behind the TWD choice this week, something called Kugelhopf... which seemed like a brioche bundt cake thing. Since brioche killed my KA mixer last time, and I just got my new one this wkd, I was banned from making anything that might shove my brand new baby into a premature death. Reading about the comments from the ladies in the TWD forum, seemed like I probably wasn't missing too much.

I do however have lots of eye-candy for you, in the form of...surprise, CUPCAKES. Miss Clara...ask and you SHALL receive! :D

These are all the beauties I have been working on for the last few weeks. I have a huge batch this weekend I will be working on and a Cake Slice cake to make by the 20th, so not sure about next week's TWD. But anyway, Enjoy!


Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes w/Mallow Punkies!


Vanilla Bean Cupcakes w/Fondant Flowers


Lots of Chocolate Cupcakes for an Event!

Halloween Cupcakes (sorry the image is so grainy, too dark so had to lighten!)


Pumpkin Spice again...Special Heart Style.


Butter Cakes & Maple Pecan ... YUM!

Along with lots of cupcakes, I have been making banana cake, peanut butter cookies, and tonite...mint brownies! I only have a photo of the cookies...the rest was quickly consumed...mmmmm so much for keeping 'cupcake top' under control!!



Check out the TWD's for this week...enjoy!

Ha I couldn't get behind this week's choice either...mostly because it seemed like a lot of effort for something that was not really a dessert...those cupcakes look AMAZING though!!

SUGAR B said...

Beautiful cupcakes! Just like YOU. xoxo.

Ivy said...

All of them look devine!
My favorite is with the chocolate heart on top. How did you do the design on the heart-it's so precious.:)

Lorraine E said...

Beautiful cupcake selection! I think I like the first one best (although it's hard to choose a favourite)

Janna said...

Where are you buying the cupcake boxes that hold the cupcakes?

Natalie... said...

Mmm these look good!
I want a mallow pumpkin!!
And to answer your question on the mud cake when making it its a very runny liquid but when baked it is extremely moist and light :)

Jacque said...

Oh my goodness! Have you had any time to SLEEP?

So many gorgeous cupcakes! It's hard to choose a favorite.
