~Jack's Birds~

These are practice cupcakes...I wanted to try a bird design and these turned out really well. I like the texture of the wing...I used an embossing tool. Just royal icing for the letters, next time I'll either tint it a color or use something else to fancy it up a bit. Very cute for a baby boys birthday or something. These are for my dog Jack's birthday...he loves birds. Or he just wants to catch them. Either way I'm sure he'll enjoy the cupcakes!

The only bird Jack will ever catch... ; )

~Metallics and Cupcakes~

These were just for fun...I received an order from the UK with lots of great cupcake "stuff". The edible glitter used on these cupcakes is called " Disco Mocha" by EdAble Art. Added to a little brown food gel and extract to make it more of a liquid and it made these embossed fondant covered cupcakes look like copper. I love the look and will definitely use this again soon.

I added a little fondant bow also painted with the glitter.

~Lady Bug Cupcakes~

These Lady Bug cupcakes are red velvet and cream cheese frosting...they seem to be so "in" right now. Everything is made of fondant and I used an edible pen for the dots.
They turned out so very cute!

Red Checked cupcake liners went perfectly with

the greens and reds of nature.

~Scooters & Cupcakes~

My husband asked me to be in a scooter calendar....gulp....and I agreed. The scooter that I sat on for the photos is a Vespa Allstate. It was a pretty sea foam color and I really had fun despite the fact I was so freaked out about having my picture taken. So I decided to try to recreate that same scooter on a cupcake. I guess it's our two loves in one! I included one of the pictures from the photo shoot as well. His sister Allison is a professional photographer at and she was able to make me feel comfortable through the whole thing...well her and one large margarita! The fondant scooter is a little messy not nearly as pretty as the real one but with a little practice I think these could be cute for birthday cupcakes or maybe for his scooter shop anniversary.

the color of the fondant is much closer to the

actual color of the scooter than it looks in these pictures
