Just call me “The Baking Goddess”

Let me tell you, I have been on a baking spree!  I have had so many orders coming in and I COULD NOT be happier!  Sure, it’s eaten into my sleeping and exercising schedule : ), but I don’t care, I’ve so enjoyed doing all of it!

I made a cake that resembled a beehive and 50 cupcakes to go with that last week.

I know you’ve seen pictures on Pintrest or somewhere of the cupcakes that look like high heels.  I made those too, and they weren’t perfect, but I thought that they were pretty darn cute!  I know what I did wrong, so I have learned from my mistakes and know exactly what to do differently next time.

 

Then chocolate cupcakes with cookies n cream frosting.

 

Chocolate chip cupcakes with pink buttercream for a wedding shower.

And finally chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with buttercream and sprinkles.

I’m usually pretty boring when it comes to coloring icing, but I’ve been doing so much that isn’t white, that I feel like I need to jazz it up when there isn’t any color.

I’ve been having so much fun and if you need an order and live in the 757, you know where to find me!

Legit

I am now.  Well not me, but whatever I end up naming my alleged baking business.

This past weekend I was asked to make cupcakes for a wedding celebration for a friend.  Four-hundred and eighty mini cupcakes, four batches of icing and 480 chocolate shaped shells later, I had accomplished something I have been dreaming about for years.  I actually made baked goods for a real event (and someone paid me to do it).  Thankfully, my trusty right hand woman made the trip down from Nova to help me.  I hope that she had as much fun as I did.

I got nothing but rave reviews and CANNOT wait to do it again…

Cupcakes!

A Shower with No Rain

A few days ago I threw a shower for one of my BFAWs (Best Friends at Work).  She is expecting a baby girl on Thanksgiving Day, but we are depending on the “Curse of Work Showers” to send her into early labor as it has the last three pregnant employees/wives of employees in the end of October.  With the exception of a very last minute venue change, the shower was a success with a lot of fun, laughs, games, gifts and baked treats!

The weather was questionable most of the day, but cleared up just in time for the shower and was sunny with a little chill in the air.  It was a perfect day for a shower.

I made cake pops and strawberry cupcakes for the occasion.  I also had two cake orders for Saturday, so it was a baking filled few days in our house.  I loved every second!

Can’t wait until baby Chloe’s big debut!
