25th Birthday Cake - Blog

Hope everyone has had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend… To cap it off, the final cake of the weekend is for my friend Elisabeth, who is turning 25 today. The cake is red velvet, filled with three layers of cream cheese icing and topped in cream cheese icing and vanilla fondant. The pink design is all done in vanilla fondant. Happy birthday, Elisabeth!

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!
