Nora's first birthday cupcakes

These were chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and confetti sprinkles for my niece Nora's first birthday. Her mom was pregnant and didn't feel like baking. It turns out I was pregnant too, and didn't really feel like baking either, but I still got them done! And with the cute little balloon toppers I had made a while before finding out I was pregnant, they did not look like a last ditch effort by two pregnant, sick, mommies! Nora sure enjoyed them!

Chocolate and Rose Birthday Cake

If someone in my family has a birthday, they tend to request that I make them a chocolate cake. I can't blame them because I make a pretty mean chocolate cake, but I find myself trying to do something a little different each time because I end up making sooooo many chocolate layer cakes throughout the year. So, for my sisters birthday I made some pink fondant roses using a silicone mold I found. I think it turned out very feminine and pretty. And of course, It tasted really good!

Monkey Cupcakes

These cupcakes were requested by a friend for her  and her daughters birthday. They share a birthday! She sent me a picture of what she wanted and I was able to deliver. I don't know who came up with this idea for money cupcakes originally, but with some vanilla wafers, chocolate sprinkles and candy eyes they came together in a snap.
