Christmas cuppies!!

Christmas is my absolute faaavorite holiday, and one of my favorite traditions is busting out my baking pans with nooo shame and having a total blast baking up a storm. I baked some Christmas cupcakes for a holiday party and shared them with the people I love most - my family :)

A forest of Christmas trees!

Lauren's Bridal Shower!!!

Lauren is such a dear friend of mine, and when she told me that she wanted cupcakes for her tea party themed shower, I was so excited to make her the best cuppies I possibly could :) She wanted "flowers" so I decided to give her lots of different flowers, and to stick with her pink and white theme.

Jacob's Baptism Cupcakes!

Unfortunately, the day I made Jacob's baptism cupcakes, I didn't have my camera on me! I was so upset, because they really came out adorable! BUT, in the nick of time I remembered that my camera had a phone and so I at least snapped a few shots before they were devoured. Ana Maria, Jacob's mom, requested custom cupcakes to celebrate one of the most important days of Jacob's life thus far, and it was an honor to make them for her :)
Please excuse the poor resolution - Remember, camera phone!

Introducing: Bliss Cake!!!

I've just added a new item to my menu, an enormous chocolate "Bliss Cake" that tastes as good as its name sounds. It has three layers of rich chocolate cake, filled with layers of buttercream and chocolate chips and finished with a delicious chocolate ganache.
Each chocolate bliss cake is $25.00.

Johanna's Peepee cupcakes!!

Oh my God, what a RIOT!! Johanna contacted me last week to see if I could make her some penis cupcakes for a bachelorette party. Of course I said yes, while laughing to myself. Everyone at the bakery was cracking up as I made the little fondant penises, and my dad was calling me a "desgraciada" all day, which means that I am a disgraced young woman (all in good fun!)
Anyway, they were so fun to make and I am glad I have another order for penis cupcakes this weekend!

Batman cupcake cake :)

I made these cupcakes from a book, for Giancarlo's birthday party. His mom wanted the batman symbol on a cupcake cake, so that's what we gave her!

Gaby and Shula's birthday cupcakes!!

Jen is turning into one of my best customers! Not only does she give me really fun ideas and cupcakes to make, but she also is an incredibly thoughtful person which gives her lots of excuses to order cupcakes :) Her husband, Gaby and dog, Shula just happen to share the same birthday, so she thought it would be really fun to do some Gaby/Shula themed cupcakes.

Wonderful Jen ordered some adorable pink and blue cupcakes for her cousin Odette's spa day, to celebrate her upcoming wedding. The letters spelled out "Odie's Spa Day" and I think it was so sweet of her to order these cupcakes for all of the girls. Hope they loved them!

Claudia's baby shower!!!

Now that twins Sofia and Lucas's arrival is just around the corner, there was a beautiful baby shower in Claudia's honor today at the Barnacle in Coconut Grove. It was such a lovely place and Claudia was absolutely radiant. She had a fun and whimsical "sweets" theme, so cupcakes were perfect for the event!
