Party Night - Cupcakes Galore!

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

My boyfriend and I are hosting a little shindig at hour house this evening… clearly an event that requires cupcakes. I wanted to try some new recipes, so I ended up with three different types of cupcakes, and way more of them than could possibly be eaten by our small group of friends.

Cupcake #1 is a traditional southern red velvet, topped with a creamy coconut cream cheese frosting.

Cupcake #2 is a rustic carrot cake with big slices of carrot and chopped walnut, topped in cream cheese frosting.

Cupcake #3 was an experiment that I’m pretty excited about… I had some un-iced vanilla cupcakes lying around, and I decided to make a tart raspberry buttercream to go on top - yum!

This cake was for a little girl named Chloe who turned 4 this weekend and had a beautiful fairy princess party…  She wanted pink, sparkles, fairy wands, and flowers, and that is what she got!  This is a chocolate cake with pink vanilla buttercream, decorated in pink buttercream and tinted gum paste flowers and stars.
