This Just In!

Happy Thursday, cupcake lovers!

I hope your 2012 has been great so far 🙂
I received some exciting packages in the mail yesterday and I thought I’d share my excitement with all of you. 

Drum roll please………….

(Note: Those are not Bites cupcakes in the box)

Yes, that is correct – pink cupcake boxes!

From now on when you receive your cupcake order, you will not only receive 1 dozen delicious cupcakes, but you will ALSO get this cute pink box to keep your precious cargo safe & secure.
I am also giving a $2 discount if you bring the box back for any orders after that.  So if you plan to keep “refilling” your cupcake supply, save that box!

Happy End of Year!

Looking back at 2011, I can honestly say that it’s been an eventful year!  I made my very first cake pop on Easter Sunday and I never would have imagined that I would make pops into Roses, Baseballs, Mummies, Santa Hats, and so many other things.  Same goes for my cupcakes, I’ve spent months perfecting my recipes and to be quite honest, I don’t think I’ll ever be 100% satisfied with any recipe – because it can always get better!

I’ve had one amazing year and I have my customers, friends & family to thank for it all.  From catering my first event with The Stanton Magazine to providing dozens of cupcakes & cake pops for weddings/business parties, I wouldn’t be where I am now without all your support!  So thank you, my sweet friends, for making me a better baker and for making my 2011 a memorable one. 

I leave you with a GORGEOUS cupcake from one of my favorite stores – Georgetown Cupcake in DC, and now NYC.

I also remind you to please be safe this New Year’s Eve – DON’T DRINK & DRIVE.  There are several companies providing transportation as your celebrations come to a close, so please utilize them.

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Let the baking begin!

First off, I would like to apologize for the month-long hiatus that has kept me from posting or creating any new treats.  On the other hand, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to my dedicated & sweet customers that have waited patiently while I finished my undergraduate career at UTEP last week.  It’s been such an adventure and I can’t believe I can finally call myself a “College Graduate!”

With that said, these next few days will be focused on creating 3 new holiday cupcake flavors AND a few new Christmas cake pops. I know it’s a little last minute, so that just means you’ve got to keep checking my Facebook from now until Saturday – because once I post holiday photos, emails start pouring in and order space is limited!

Happy Holidays 🙂

Happy Breaking Dawn Day!

Okay, I’ll admit it… I LOVE TWILIGHT!  So it was absolute excitement when “a dozen Twilight-inspired cupcakes” were requested by one of my customers.  Naturally, I suggested red velvet to go with these vampire cupcakes.

I always see cupcakes decorated so beautifully with fondant, but I just can’t get my taste buds to agree with it.  So I try and manipulate chocolate to look just as nice.

And with that said, I present to you…. one of my favorite cupcake dozens ever…

The Twilight dozen!

Be sure to go see Breaking Dawn: Part 1 🙂

Bestie and Bacon

So today is one of my best friends’ birthdays! She turns 23 years OLD today and this weekend I decided to give her a little treat.

What does bacon have to do with cupcakes you ask? EVERYTHING.  One thing my best friend and I have in common is our love for bacon.  It goes with just about anything, even cupcakes.  So I decided to try and make some bacon even more delicious (meaning even more unhealthy).

I invested in some better quality bacon – applewood…. my mouth is watering all over again.

Then I decided to grab some brown sugar and cinnamon.

And there you have it, I had my bacon coating.

Bake it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes (turning over once).

Voila! Delicious Cinnamon-Sugared Bacon.

Now how can I make this treat better than just saying “Here is a strip of bacon, Happy Birthday”?

Top it onto her favorite cupcake (jumbo-style) – Dark Chocolate with a TINY bit of White Chocolate Buttercream.

Now THERE’S a birthday treat!

Happy birthday best friend 🙂
