Just say yes to cupcakes!

Posted by on Feb 14, 2013 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

I do monthly work cakes for my husband’s office and its fun to think of new creations and theme them with the current month’s holidays, etc.  But I also love creating different cupcake flavors for them.  So far it seems my chocolate peanut butter cup one is an overall favorite. 🙂

This month I created some new flavors for them to try…from left to right:

Vanilla Cupcake – Cream Cheese Frosting- Maple Glazed Bacon
Vanilla Cupcake – Chocolate Frosting, topped with Caramel
Chocolate Cupcake – Vanilla Frosting – Cherries on top (black forest-ish)

They Love Cupcakes

Posted by on Sep 25, 2012 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

I’ve made lots of cakes for my husband’s work over the past few years, but cupcakes always seem to go over well.  I think it is in part because of the variety of flavors I can do.  I must say, it is fun to create these delicious cupcakes ~ almost even more than a decorated one.  I’m guessing that is because I’m a sucker for a delicious dessert!  So for September I did cupcakes again.  I brought back an old favorite (Peanut Butter/Chocolate ~ which always goes over well) and brought in 2 new ones!

Yeah those 3 don’t really go together (at least for me) but they do make 3 lovely separate cupcakes!  These are the flavors I sent off with my husband for his August work cake last week.

Cupcake Flavor #1:
Spice Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting & Maple Syrup Candy Accent

Cupcake Flavor #2:
Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting & a PB and Choc Drizzle

Cupcake Flavor #3:
Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcake with Banana Cream Filling and Vanilla Icing sprinkled with Chocolate Chips

Baby Shower Yummies!

Posted by on Jul 31, 2012 in Baby, Cupcakes, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

This cake was for a baby shower ~ the mom-to-be wanted a main decorative cake plus yummy cupcakes on the side.

This cake was an 8″ & 12″.  Buttercream with fondant accents.  The bow and shoes are fondant/gumpaste blends. I did a similar cake in the past that she loved but instead of a fondant elephant like that one had, she wanted the little girly baby shoes.

The cupcakes were yummy flavors ~ raspberry cupcakes with white chocolate icing, chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting & chopped pb cups, lemon cupcakes with lemon icing, and [not pictured] strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing and a strawberry on top!

More Chocolate Goodness

Posted by on May 20, 2011 in Birthday, My Cakes

This decadent cake was for the May birthdays at my husband’s work.  Since Dave’s birthday is this month I asked him what he wanted.  This cake is actually a repeat of a cake I did for him on a past birthday – but a cake worth redoing for sure! 😉

This is a 10″ chocolate cake with a cherry pie filling.  Then it is frosted with a chocolate ganache.  If you aren’t familiar with ganache its basically heavy whipping cream mixed with chocolate.  Yeah…hard to go wrong with that!  Then on top I added a few chocolate dipped cherries.

Family Birthdays … and Chocolate!

Posted by on Mar 29, 2011 in Birthday, My Cakes

This past weekend we celebrated the birthdays of my 2 sisters as well as my brother in law.  My little sister made the cake request…marble, with strawberry filling and chocolate frosting!  One of my favorite types of frosting! 😉

There were no design requests so I just went off one of the photos I had found online once that I liked.  I liked the simplicity of the design…simple, delicate, and pretty.

Chocolate Love

Posted by on Feb 18, 2010 in Birthday, Holiday, My Cakes

This is February’s  cake for my husband’s work meeting.   Putting together V-day and some chocolate – what a pairing!  The cake itself is covered in a chocolate ganache and then a heart is made on top with some chocolate truffles.  Yum!

Chocolate and Cherries

Posted by on May 27, 2009 in Birthday, My Cakes

This past week my husband and I celebrated our bdays (our bdays are 2 days apart).  So I asked him what kind of cake he wanted and told him it didn’t have to be all decorated but could be just fancy in flavor 🙂  So he picked chocolate cake with cherry pie filling.  I then added on the chocolate ganache for my part of it.  Chocolate ganache is TO DIE FOR! 🙂  Basically just chocolate and heavy whipping cream.  How can that be bad?  I also dipped a few marachino cherries for on top.

I can’t wait to dig into this tonight! 🙂
