One last Easter Post

So I have had many Easter orders and just couldn't compile them into one big post so they have been broken up a little. I had a last minute order for some Easter inspired cake pops and had alot of fun decorating them. Also brought some little Easter Bunny cupcakes to our son's school for their Easter party. The little cupcake bunny wraps are courtesy of I will have to come back and update that information. Well here are the last of the Easter treats as today is Easter and it is time to move on. Next up Royal Wedding fever!!

Twin Birthday!

So our dear sweet little friends Maddie and Kohl turned one this week and to celebrate their parents who are also our dear sweet friends threw them a super cute Noah's Ark party. In lew of gifts we were all to bring a dish to share kind of like a potluck party. I of course immediately signed up for the desserts. I got an idea to do some funky Noah's Ark cookies in pink and green since our sweet twins are a brother and sister as well as a monogrammed chocolate sugar cookie.  Of course I couldn't leave it at cookies alone and whipped up some strawberry shortcake cupcakes filled with homemade strawberry jam and then some oreo cream cupcakes made with fresh cream. I tried my hand at making my own cupcake toppers and think they turned out ok for my first time. Happy Birthday again to Maddie and Kohl!!

Happy Easter to all!! This Easter we celebrated with friends and had such a wonderful day of it! As always I ask what could I bring to lunch and of course offered up some sweet treats. They were gleefully accepted so I quickly thought of what I would like to contribute. These little pretties came to mind so here there are! Lemon Chiffon Mum Cupcakes! Enjoy!!

A little Curious!

This weekend we helped our friends three little boys celebrate their 3rd and 5th birthdays with a Curious George/ Monkey party. I offered to help them decorate by making the birthday banner and centerpieces as well as these little Mod Monkey cookies. They had such a great time and the children were carrying the cookies around with them like a prized treasure. So happy to be a part of their special day!!

Nothing to do with baking but thought it turned out cute for the center piece.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Our youngest son is set to have a second surgery on his throat, so I thought it would be nice to butter up the staff at the ENT's office! What better to do that with than these cute little cupcaks. These sweet treats are carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and a mini carrot shaped cookie pop. Enjoy!

Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know it was Colon Cancer Awareness Month? Neither did I until I received an order for these little green ribbons that represent Colon Cancer Awareness. Thanks to my friend Heather for the order and for helping to raise awareness for this cause.

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!!

As you could probably guess from the title this week was all about Mickey Mouse! I received an order for these cute little guys this Wednesday so had to hope right onto making them as they were due Friday. Now normally I require a 2 week notice for an order, but this was for a special little boy who was turning 2 and I had a hard time saying no. I hope he enjoyed them!
