Hello Hydrangea!!!!

This I have to say was the most challenging and fulfilling cupcake project thus far. I am so in love with Blue Hydrangeas. My bouquet from my wedding was only Hydrangeas. I love them!!! So when I was contacted to do cupcake bouquets for a shower for a baby boy, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try it out. I am super excited about how they turned out. They look amazing if I do say so myself!
They actually look just like my bouquet. Aren't they purrrty?!!

 P.S. These puppies gave me the worst arm cramps I've ever experienced in my life. Just thought I'd share that.

Hello there...

Lately I've been neglecting to post pertinent information here, since I've posted it on my Facebook page. Tisk, tisk, tisk, shame on me. Well, a few weeks ago I successfully completed my first attempt at building a cupcake tower/stand/tree thingy. I found a few how tos, but I had to wing it for the most part because I couldn't find the exact supplies. I had big plans to take pics to document the steps, but uh, yeah, that didn't happen. I just kept going and forgot all about the pics. Here's a few pics of the finished product.

Ok, So that's not it. This past weekend I had to build a second cupcakes tree. This time I used much better products, But once again I forgot to document the steps. I definitely think this one came out much better. It may not show in the pictures, but Mama knows. This one was for a Cirque du Soliel themed 30th Birthday party. I also made this cutsie little monogram topper for the cop cupcake. I love it. I think I'll make one for my birthday.

Cupcake-a-saurus Rex

Just a quick post to share my latest cupcake cake. I made Mr. Dino for a three year old little cutie pie's birthday party on Sunday. He was so excited when he saw it!
Those reactions are what make me love what i do.
Have a great day!

Happy New Year!!!!!

So, I totally missed the one year anniversary of starting this blog. Between the holidays and the holiday orders I barely know what today's date is. That's a good thing! I had this whole thing planned out for what I would say and how I would thank my followers on that date, but I missed it.
So here we are on New Year's Day, the perfect time to thank you all for making 2010 such an awesome year. From the cupcakes to the comments I have had so much more success in this first year than I could have ever imagined. So thank you! I wish I could send you all a cupcake right now!

In 2011 my eye is on the prize. The focus is on the storefront. Babycakes Couture Sweets Boutique 2012!!!

At this time of year people make resolutions to be or do better, or to do something they have been putting off for a while. Most often times they don't follow through. This year I'm not making resolutions. I'm making plans. Plans are roadmaps or blueprints for a desired outcome. Make a plan, with simple steps and easy to find landmarks, that should help with keeping you on track through out the year.
This year I plan to come up with new a cupcake flavor every month, and tackle new techniques that I've been wanting to try. I plan to learn and know the business side of things like I know my cupcakes. It's going to be a good year!
What are your New Year's Plans?
