So the lovely Suz Broughton asked if I’d do a guest post on her blog on the OC Register. I was planning to do one for Fathers Day but time ran away from me so instead I did one for the 4th of July. In my post, which you can read here, I give a tutorial on how to make cupcake kabobs. These ones are specifically for the 4th of July but really you could customize them for any event.

Better yet, you can even leave a comment and be entered to win a dozen cupcakes from me! Woo hoo! You have to be in Orange County though, or be willing to get to Orange County to pick them up.

So what are you doing still reading this?? Head over to the OC Register and check out my post! Scoot, scoot!

Delicious!

Like, for sure!

Things are getting pretty busy, which is good! and bad too. Catching up on sleep has become a new priority. Plus I have been battling a cold for almost 2 weeks now. Yuck!

Anyway, wanted to post pics of a cake I just did for a birthday. A customer of Bliss loves my red velvet cupcakes so her husband came in and ordered her a red velvet cake for her birthday. I’ve been getting more and more requests for red velvet cakes. I think it’s because most grocery stores don’t do red velvet.

Queen of Hearts cake for birthday

Making cakes look professional is A LOT of work! Getting the icing smooth, piping decorations. Piping words!! OMG that is probably the most stressful part. I decorated with cake with fondant pink daisies and fondant purple butterflies. And I piped pink dots along the bottom border. It is a quarter sheet cake. I definitely prefer cupcakes.

For this weekend, I have a big order of mini cupcakes for a 80’s themed birthday party on Saturday in Santa Monica. I am going to decorate some of the cupcakes with custom work. The other cupcakes will be regularly decorated and decorated with some cool toppers I bought. Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Pony, boom boxes, records, Pepsi cans, Care Bears, record players and more. I want to make the frostings and decorations very bright. I also found neon sign picks and I am going to write 80s words on them like – Totally, Rad, Gag Me With a Spoon… that’s all I can think of now. Do you have any suggestions for others?

Like, I’m totally spazzing!
