Happy New Year!
Can I still say that? Even though it’s now well into the new year?
Sorry for the absence. With time off of work, orders and etc, including being super busy at work (my day job), I just haven’t had the chance. I really shouldn’t be right now either. I’ve got a newsletter to finish.
So this will be short and sweet – I wanted to share with you pictures from a few orders I’ve done recently. I had a wedding on New Years Eve, a little girls 3rd birthday party order, a 50th birthday party order and a special little kids 3rd birthday….
Let’s start with that one first. My dear friend Elizabeth’s cutie pie little girl turned 3 in December. THREE! I just can’t believe it. She is such a little person. I love it! And love her.
She wanted vanilla cupcakes with pink frosting and lots of sprinkles so I made vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting, sprinkles and glitter. I made one dozen for the kids using agave nectar and they were none the wiser. Even some of the adults liked them. Using agave nectar gave the cupcakes a more earthy smell. Does that make sense? It smelled kinda like honey. Smelled delicious!
Next up was another little girls 3rd birthday. This one was different. She is allergic to all dairy so I made vegan cupcakes. It was the first time she ever tasted frosting!
Love the little sneaky finger in there. This picture was taken by her Aunt, the one who also ordered the cupcakes from Meringue Bake Shop. Go Aunt!
Here is a shot of the completed cupcake tower for the New Years Eve wedding.
The theme was Black and White. It looked very elegant inside. Very cool idea for a wedding date, dontcha think?
And finally, a small order for a mom’s 50th birthday. She used to eat my red velvet cupcakes when I sold them at Bliss and so her daughter ordered a dozen from me for her mom’s birthday.
I rimmed the edges in red sparkling sugar. Fancy!
That’s it for now. I have some changes coming to my pricing that I will talk about in another post. And another announcement that you may already know, if you are following me on twitter…. www.twitter.com/meringuebkeshp
