I Wanna Be The Girl With the Most Cake...Cupcake Post!


Spring teased us New Yorkers a few days ago with warm weather but alas Winter is back tomorrow. Snow is in the forecast for the next 2 days. I guess those buds of flowers I saw will have to wait a lil while longer to bloom; so I just have to make my own garden...using Cupcakes!

My Mom for new followers is an Artist at heart and her Specialty is Cake Decorating! I've taken her class now for two semesters. I love it. I put my apron on earlier tonight and put my decorating bags & icing to work. It's so much fun to actually do it yourself that I can't begin to describe. Those sunflowers up there are my favorite. I added a lil heart sprinkle to give it some love. =)


It's all in the metal tips, decorating bags, icing, and a lil twist of food coloring. Seriously...and a lil patience. Actually ALOT of patience but making your own cupcakes is tons of fun. I got most of my supplies from A.C. Moore & Michaels. I wish I had some editing video software so I could make a lil video demo. Maybe on my new camera I'm getting soon.

I know I just posted about my dieting and I will confess...I had a some icing but only a lil bit I swear. I've been in class a few weeks now so tonight I did decorated a whole bunch of cupckaes to review the designs I've learned so far. I thought I'd share them with you and maybe inspire you tonight! =)



 There is a Shower Cap Wilton Tip and it makes the icing look like grass when it comes out. I got a lil carried away with it...hehe.



Some Roses for some future gardening...

Sunflowers are my Favorite Flower...


I wonder what my Mom is going to teach us Next! =)

How fun! Love the black-eyed susan.

My gf took lessons at the ICE in NYC and did cupcakes for my wedding reception in 2008 (hubby loves chocolate and I love white cake) cupcakes were the best option for us.

She did an amazing job and they were so cute.

I'm definitely in awe of anyone who can bake.
