Honey Lavender Cupcake

I’ve been wanting to try a cupcake with lavender for awhile and I found an amazing recipe! My friend let me have some edible lavender flowers and I went to town.

I started with a vanilla cupcake and frosted them with a honey mascarpone frosting. The frosting was to die for! Then I made a lavender brittle!

They turned out so pretty, very yummy and not too floral. I was afraid the lavender would be overpowering, but since it was only in the brittle and sprinkled on top, it was just right!

Rose Cake

I absolutely love making this cake! It is so beautiful, elegant and stunning. For an grand opening in a boutique, I provided the cupcakes. I also wanted to make a special cake to help the owners celebrate. The name of the store is Pink Sugar so there was my inspiration!

I went with a simple white cake recipe and colored half e batter pink and left the other half white. I put it in 9 in round pans so the cake would bake up in a zebra pattern! (The fun thing is this cake could be customized in any combination of colors!)

Then I filled it with my famous strawberry rhubarb filling and did a crumb coat with a light pink frosting.

Then I put on all the roses. To add the finishing touch, I added edible pearls to the center of most of the roses.

Gorgeous! Thanks to Holly Nylund Photography for the photos!!

Retirement Cake

I had an order for a retirement cake/congratulations cake for some good students. We decided on a two layer cake. One white layer, one chocolate with a strawberry filling and fresh strawberries too! Yum!!

I frosted it with a vanilla buttercream and added some sugar cookies decorated with royal icing. One as a police badge and then the 4.0 to celebrate these college students’ good grades.

I heard the clients totally enjoyed their cake!

Cotton Candy Cupcakes

I had a request from a customer for Cotton Candy Cupcakes. So, I took the challenge and looked around for ideas. I used my vanilla cupcake recipe and added cotton candy and some food coloring to match the cotton candy to it. Yum! For the frosting, I used my basic buttercream recipe only adding cotton candy and some blue food coloring again to the liquid part of the recipe.

For flair, I rolled them in sprinkles. They were so yummy! My kids enjoyed them and so did my customer!
