Lots of Baby Boy Blue

I was so happy to help out with cupcakes for another baby shower this past weekend! Since the shower was for a bouncing baby-boy-to-be, I had tons of fun finding baby blue decorations and even getting my fondant that perfect shade of baby blue!

These are white chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, jumbo confetti sprinkles, and handmade "S" monograms.

I think they look really cute even with no decoration and just the polka dot ribbon tied around the liner too!

Monkey Cupcakes!!

Brace yourself for some serious cuteness:

I made these little monkey cupcakes for a little man named Luke and his 1st birthday party this past weekend. So cute! The white cupcakes are white chocolate with a buttercream frosting, and the chocolate cupcakes are topped with chocolate frosting and entirely edible chocolate monkey faces.

I used this technique (used successfully by the one and only Bakerella and my talented friend, Kara) which Bakerella attributes to The Whimsical Bakehouse which I have got to get a copy of immediately!

It seems there would be almost limitless uses for this simple decorating technique. I love that the little monkey faces are entirely edible too!

Happy 1st Birthday, Luke!

Bite-sized Cupcakes

I haven't been able to find the time to bake as often as I'd like to lately! But trust me, I've got some really cute cupcakes in the works so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I did finally get around to making these little treats by the fabulous Bakerella! They came together surprisingly fast given how long these guys took me to put together! I was able to whip these up in almost no time to take over to our friends' house...quick to make and even quicker to disappear!

These little 2 bite cupcakes are so good and just too cute to resist! Bakerella walks you through step by step instructions on her blog so try it out and impress your friends!
