cupcake ideas

I had a group of church ladies over to do a basics cupcakes class.  I showed by using techniques you can really create a variety of cupcake designs.  These cupcakes were decorated with a star tip or round opening.  There is a pull out star purple monster.  Blueberry pie,  stars and stripes, and sugar sheets ribbon rose.

Rapunzel water latern cake

I was asked to make a Rapunzel Lantern scene cake.  The cake is vanilla cake with Chocolate mousse filling and whip cream frosting.  The family purchased the Rapunzel and Flynn Rider figures and boat to put on top.  I used blue piping gel to make the water.  The flowers are made of gumpaste.  Below the boat is the shadow of the castle and the reflection of the laterns in the water.

Curious George Cake

For my daughter's 3rd birthday we did a Curious George inspired cake.  Both of my children LOVE that curious monkey.  So I used the largest Pampered Chef glass measuring cup to bake the cake and then made the curious George out of rice crispy treat and covered it with fondant.  Simple but cute.

My daughters and I were doing an alphabet lesson.  So we make cookies and cut out animal shapes.  Then we molded the letter that the animal started with on top.  It was a sound does this letter make lesson for my older daughter, and a what is this letter lesson for my younger daughter.  The cookies are Peanut Butter.

These are the cupcakes I made for my daughter's 3rd birthday.  Since we had family coming that weekend, we saved the Curious George cake for the weekend and ate cupcakes on her actually birthday.
