Barnyard cupcake tower for a 2nd birthday

Barnyard cupcake tower

We were hired to put together a barnyard or farm theme cupcake tower for a cute little boy turning 2. I hope we didn’t disappoint! These were so fun to make! I loved making the animal pieces and then the animal sounds. I thought that would be perfect for a 2 yr old! We topped the tower with a custom cake with a barn and some clouds and grass. I love when it all comes together so well!

Dessert table for Daniel Tosh, Live Nation and crew

Tosh on Ice Dessert Table

A month ago, I was hired to put together a dessert table to celebrate the run of Tosh On Ice 2011 tour at Honda Center. I am a fan of Daniel and his show Tosh.O. Coincidentally I was just at the season finale taping of Tosh.O a few weeks prior up there in Culver City. It was really neat to see it from a live audiences perspective and also get to see the host (Daniel) in real life and how it really is vs how he is on tv.

The Invitation Matched the Cake

Bear smash cake

We had one heck of a busy weekend! We were very lucky to be asked to do a cupcake tower for Hearts & Laserbeams (the person responsible for the awesome graphics on my site!) son’s first birthday. Steph designed his first birthday invitations herself and I wanted to match his smash cake with the one on the invite.

Here is the smash cake vs little bear on the invite:

This past weekend we took a break from the Farmers Market so I could have some fun celebrating one of my favorite kids 5th birthday. And I had the privilege of making this little dude a pirate cake to go along with the pirate theme of his big day. I can’t believe I’ve known this kid for 5 yrs now…

This adorable baby….

“Paint” Splatter Cake

I got this idea from the fab-o Kari from Retro Bakery. I think it came out pretty cute! It was really fun to make but VERY messy. But I’d do it again for sure.

Hot Pink Kitty

One of the orders we had this week was for a Hello Kitty birthday party at Pretend City. Hot pink frosting was the request along with matching hot pink glittery bows. All hand cut decorations. Can someone tell me where I can buy a small hello kitty cutter??

Toy Story, Baby shower minis, Sailboats & Abby Cadabby cupcakes

Last weekend was a busy one with lots of orders happening. I was fortunte enough to know the awesome photographers doing the pictures for one of the events. So that means you get to look at some pretty great looking pics!

Let’s start off with the It’s a Boy baby shower mini cupcakes. The client requested just simple decorations so I did a blue gingham liner and instead of topping my Tea Time with pale yellow sugar I dipped them in opal sugar and topped with a blackberry instead of a pink raspberry. That’s one of the things I like to emphasize with clients is that if you to change some things to go along with your theme, just let me know! I love doing something a little different. And there is no extra change for this. Bonus!

The shower host was gracious enough to send me some nice pics of the cupcakes all set up.

The mom-to-be also loves Nutella so we were asked to create something with nutella, which isn’t on our standard menu. No problem! And no extra charge either. Who knows, when I get suggestions from clients, it may become a new standard on the menu! The Nutella were topped with a light dusting of pale blue disco dust to continue with the theme.

Another event that weekend was for a little girls 3rd birthday. And she loves Abby Cadabby. So we did some custom hand-piped buttercream Abby Cadabby cupcakes and Elmo cupcakes along with a matching giant cupcake on top of the tower.

And then the big daddy – Toy Story birthday party for triplets turning 2!

The client purchased cupcakes and macarons for her dessert table, decorated and the colors of Toy Story.

**DON’T FORGET!**

Sunday is the BIG day! We’ll be at The Great Park Farmers Market from 10a-2p. We’ll be selling Halloween decorated cupcakes and have some freebies for the little ones. Trick or treat! Hope to see you there!
