More Random Events

Here is the last batch of random photos from my crazy week.  I did an order for a baby shower office party and they wanted cookies that were stars and cars.  As you can see from the photo I didn’t really do the realistic route, but made it more cartoon-like.  For that same order I also did chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.  I colored the buttercream to match the cookie colors and then added a lime green fondant accent.  And lastly they order 24 mini key lime pies…these are definitely one of my favorites.




I also had a cupcake wedding last weekend…yes, one day before my friend’s wedding!  The bride had quite a colorful wedding and wanted 5 colors combined in the cupcake order…orange, deep pink, deep purple, turquoise, and sage green.  She sent me over a photo of with the sample colors and they looked quite pretty together…very vibrant and colorful.  I don’t have tons of photos of the order since I was so crunched for time and also since I had my assistant deliver the cupcakes for me.  However one of my friends who was at the wedding snapped a photo of the cupcakes for me, so I thought I would post it.  My brother-in-law made this cupcake tower for me and this was the first time I tried it out.  Each tier comes apart and there are actually four more tiers that could go on it if I wanted it for a bigger event.  Here is also a photo of one of the color schemes on some cupcakes.  They had purple heart fondant accents with their initials “I+M” on it.
