Cupcakes!

We love to do cupcakes here at SYF!   Custom cupcakes with fun animals or designs, or just delicious flavorful cupcakes!

You can see that I like to keep the colors of the frosting natural, like Vanilla or Chocolate,  and then to spruce it up or get a fun color I like the looks of a fun topper.  These little animals are so cute!  My favorite were the snakes!   See that they are 2 x 2, for a little Noah’s Ark Theme!

Of Course we do “regular” cupcakes as well,  These are one of the most loves Specialty Cupcakes – The Margarita cupcake!

Winery Wedding Shoot

Meg Brock Photography (9)

  I received this wonderful opportunity to be involved in a photo shoot with a very talented Photographer, Meg Brock.  She does beautiful work.  We did it at the Rose Bank Winery in Newtown, PA. I may have gone a little overboard because I made a whole dessert table.  I really love how the pictures came out but you have to see the shoot from her perspective.

  Please look at her website to see some beautiful pictures:

Settlers of Catan cake!

So what does one make for a serious gamer on her 30th Birthday?  Why a Settlers of Catan cake of course!  The cake is actually 19 separately iced and fondanted cakes in both devils food and chocolate chip pound cake.  Some of the game peices were included (made from fondant)  and included the “water”  expansion pack.  The birthday girl was beyond thrilled!

Chinese theme cupcakes:  Banana Cupcakes with Peanut butter buttercream!  Yum!
P.S.  There was also an Elvis theme to the party, hence the Banana and peanut butter (no bacon…this time)

 

 

Chocolate with Vanilla Buttercream – a classic!

 

Despite what Cake Wrecks says:  Sometimes cupcake cakes can be  AWESOME!

For the same Little Guy – he loves sonic…a lot!
