A friend of mine got me a big jar of multi-colored sprinkles, so naturally I had a field day with them. I thought the bright blue sprinkles looked pretty against the chocolate icing!
Ooohhh ahhhh =) I bought new cupcake cups as well, TJ Maxx had a set of 75 in 3 different polka dot shades. I used the blue and pink, there is also black with white polka dots.
Instead of piping on the icing with a bag, I used the knife technique to get a more home made look. Some people don't like a ton of toppings on their cupcake, so using a knife gave it just enough icing.
Non perrels, or more commonly known as Snow Caps. I thought this dressed up the cupcake a bit. I also like buying the small non perrels and use them to make different designs on the top of cupcakes.
Purple sprinkles and pink cupcake paper! I went easy on the sprinkles because I think it looks prettier that way. A cupcake surely fit for a princess =)
Just plain vanilla cake ha! My cousin, Michael turned 18 this weekend. And he loves cake - just no icing AT ALL. So in honor of him, I left a few cupcakes plain.
If you are faint of heart, then look away from this cake. This is what you would call a baking DON'T. My aunt made these beautiful layer cakes and asked me if I would help her decorate them. "I'd be happy to!" I said. Needless to say, we didn't have enough blue icing to finish the word "Birthday." After hysterically laughing for a few minutes, my brother, boyfriend and cousin attempted to remedy the situation - by writing the A and Y in MINTS. The cake of course tasted great but we couldn't stop laughing at how the cake looked. Oh and my brother made a mint "balloon" on the top cake, in case you were wondering what the hell that was.
Here are some of the cakes at the party! I always like giving people choices - leaving some plain without any toppings, and some that have fun stuff on the top!
It was also Greg's momma's birthday this weekend! We went out to a nice restaurant, and they brought her a beautiful dessert - 3 types of sorbet and they wrote Happy Birthday to her in chocolate! Looks a lot better than the job I did on that poor cake huh?
