Congratulations Kendra & James!!!

I've known Kendra and James since high school (which seems so far away now...). They were high school sweethearts and got married during college, & now they're expecting a baby!!! Apparently there are real life love stories out there! So cute!

Anyways, August 27th was their baby shower...which Kendra described as a "cocktail party with a bohemian theme". What a cute idea, right? Who made the rule that baby showers were just for girls and playing diaper games anyway?

We were asked to make some cake pops and cupcakes for the occassion and this is the invite that Kendra sent me for color reference (I covered their personal info.) ...

Kendra made those! Yes, seriously. How cute and creative!
Actually, she has started her own invite business called Beau Chic Mama by Kendra Beshk.
If you love these invites (and how could you not?), contact her about your next party! She even gives discounts for mentioning "The Sweet Bites".

And finally...drum roll please...dun dun duuuuunnnnn! Adorable mix'n'match cake pops!

These are my new favorite!!! Okay, I know I say that every time...but really! They were so fun to make. I love when I get to be a little creative! Thanks Kendra, James, & Beckette for letting us be a part of your day!!!

Christening Treats

A few weeks ago we got an e-mail requesting lots of goodies for a baby boy's christening. The theme colors were light blue and light green (obviously), and my mind was racing with all the cute ideas I had for these treats! There's nothing more fun than decorating for birthdays, baby showers, baby christenings...I love them all! Baby fever? Maybe!

But really, I was thrilled with how this order turned out. We really went all out on these, and it was totally worth it. I'm such a perfectionist, so it's usually a challenge to make myself happy...but this time I did just that!

^ Mini cupcakes - Green velvet cake with blue cream cheese frosting!

^ Full size cupcakes - Blue velvet cake with green cream cheese frosting!

^ Cakepops - Blue and green velvet cakes with cream cheese frosting, coated with blue and green candy & blue and green sugar sprinkles!

See...told you we went all out! Love it!!!

Mini Cupcakes Galore!

Mini cupcakes are pretty much my favorite thing ever.
Mostly because I feel like if they're small, I can have 5 of them...right?

ANYWAYS! My mother-in-law's best friend's husband...(did you follow that?) for the city. 
My hubby grew up calling them "Mama Roz and Daddy Tim"...isn't that cute?
I was so excited when I got an e-mail from Mama Roz asking for mini cupcakes for a city council meeting. I made a total of 6 dozen...lemon, carrot, red velvet, peanut butter cup, and chocolate lovers! Seriously...yum. I'm hungry just thinking about it!

My mother-in-law and Mama Roz are super cute and creative, (they decorated my engagement party and rehearsal dinner and they were so cute!), so they actually put this little cupcake table together. I think it's adorable! Loving the cake platters and the table runner!
Here's some pictures that Roz snapped for us...

Thanks again Roz and Tim! Congrats on the new building! :)

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes......Seriously!

Since I can remember I have loved sundaes and cupcakes. A few days ago, I started thinking about a new cupcake to add to our menu and I must have had a stroke of genius because it hit me...a hot fudge sundae cupcake! We made the recipe and baked them today. It's not often that a recipe is perfect the first time around...but this is definitely the exception. I can't get over it. They are so delish. I nearly fell on the floor after eating the first bite. And trust me I didn't stop after one bite...I might be guilty of eating 3 whole cupcakes! I couldn't help myself!

If you still don't believe me about the deliciousness of these cupcakes, listen to this. We had some of the samples sitting on the counter when the dishwasher repair man stopped by. We offered him a cupcake (figure it's the least we can do!)...and immediately after eating it, he ordered a dozen! Before the flavor was "officially" on the menu...we sold them!

The cupcake consists of vanilla cake, topped with chocolate ganache, vanilla buttercream, rainbow sprinkles, and a cherry!

I'm telling you...TO DIE FOR.
