Who Knew

I was never much of a baker, but over the past few months I have developed a desire and love of creating fun with all things edible, particularly cupcakes. Here are a few of the creations I have come up with so far, and I hope to post lots more in the future. Fun to make, and tasty, it doesn't get much better than that. I hope to someday be as good as the people I get my inspiration from; But for now, I will just enjoy the fun and smiles they bring.

This was what I gave Andy for Valentine's Day, and it was essentially the kick off to my cupcake craze. They were Red Velvet Cupcakes with Buttercream frosting and crushed peppermint candy canes on top.

This one was for Mother's Day. It was a vanilla cupcake with Vanilla Frosting, and the flower on top was my first try at molding chocolate. Of course, it needed some pink and yellow nonpareils to top it off.

Getting a little more brave with the molding chocolates, I attempted these butterfly cupcakes. The cupcake was vanilla, and the frosting was buttercream.

And last but not least for today, these were this weekends creation, and my first try at using fondant. It's an orange cupcake with cream cheese frosting, topped with a fondant flower covered in luster dust. I propped this yummy cupcake on a decorative rock in my backyard in front of our garden for a closeup.


  1. Love the blog, love the person creating it, and am a MOST grateful recipient of this newest creative endeavor - cupcakes! Cupcakes that look like little works of art, and taste so incredible you cannot stop at one! In fact I ran home inbetween my son's ballgames last night because I was having a cupcake attack and needed to feed my hunger- :) Michelle's grandma-in-law kept holding one of these cupcakes and wouldn't eat it because it was "too beautiful and just the best present!"

  2. So beautiful Michelle! I absolutely love your creations and can imagine how yummy they taste. Keep up the good work. Love you!

  3. Big grin. BIG Grin!!! You are just beautiful Michelle.
