Apple Basket Cupcakes

I made a cake that looked a little like these last fall. I wanted to turn the cake into little cupcakes that looked like Apple Baskets. I think I was successful!

They are Applesauce Spice flavor with buttercream icing and royal icing apples. I cooked them in parchment paper cups to give it more of a "basket" feel. All you have to do is cut parchment paper into squares and press them down into your cupcake pan. Easy and beautiful! Plus, I ALWAYS have parchment paper on hand, but not always cupcake liners!!!

I decided to box them up and donate these to the Officers' Spouses' Club for the November luncheon as an "opportunity" which is just the Army's way of saying "raffle prize" I hope someone finds them delicious!!!!

Baby Sugar Bees

A good friend requested this specific cake for a baby shower she was hosting. It was chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling, buttercream icing, fondant bees, and royal icing daisies. I'm very happy with how it turned out! I only hope the "Momma to bee" will love it too!!!

Zebra Print Cake

I had a 13 year old girl (the sister of a friend of mine) request a zebra print cake with pink ribbon around the top! This was half vanilla and half chocolate.

I thought the cake looked pretty cool before and after the pink stripe!

Little Mermaid

I had a request from a very special girl for a Little Mermaid Cake. Here's what I made her...

Promotion Cake

I made this cake for Eric's Orthodontist's promotion to full bird Colonel. He asked for the outline of the eagle, but I had to take it to the next level!

Congrats Grad!

I made this cake for a very good friend's son! Lory was the wife of the Commander of the battalion Eric deployed with. She was very instrumental in me getting through the deployment with 2 infants, getting involved in the Officers' Spouses' Club, and seeing what a devoted supportive Army wife is! She asked me to make a cake for her son's high school graduation. I took the mascot from Fayetteville Christian School and turned him into something yummy to eat! I hope she likes it!!!

Bowling for CAKE!

One of the NICU nurses contacted me to make her son an 8th birthday cake with a bowling ball theme. Here's what I ended up with...

Then, I threw in some cupcakes because I've been wanting to try these bowling pin cupcakes. They were VERY easy and delicious
