Cherry on Top Cupcakes

This was an idea I've had in my head and been wanting to try out for some time now - Finally got around to it! Dark chocolate fudge cupcake, vanilla butter cream filling, pink fondant "ice cream", white fondant "whipped cream", white fondant "sprinkles" topped off with a red fondant "cherry"! These were so much fun to make and I'm really pleased with how they came out! :-)

Teacher Appreciation Cupcakes

These cupcakes were done for Teacher Appreciation at my children's school! I started with yellow cake, added chocolate fudge filling, then a vanilla buttercream swirl and topped off with fondant/gum paste ovals imprinted with the words "thank you"! Each teacher received a box with one of each color cupcake.

Jungle Baby Shower Cake

This cake was done for a jungle themed baby shower! The cake was chocolate with chocolate ganache filling, topped with vanilla buttercream. The trees, dots, bananas and monkey topper were all handmade using fondant and gum paste! I loved how the little guy turned out for the top of the cake! It is impossible to look at that face and not smile!
