It’s a Fall engagement party for Lilly and her fiance.
Lilly wanted Fall colors like the one in the pictures. We added some gold to give it a fancy classy look, rather than just some Thanksgiving looks alike cupcakes
Thanks Lilly for the order and I hope you had a great party!
It’s a HK birthday celebration!
This is Elena’s sister’s birthday! Elena was the one who turned ONE a few weeks ago, with the owls theme cupcakes
HK will always be a popular kitty

One of the cutest baby shower theme I designed for Sharlene, one of my bride who got married over the summer.
Charla was not the mother-to-be, but she was in fact throwing a baby shower.
Loved this theme. Was totally inspired to match the invite.
Thanks Charla for another opportunity to have fun with the designs!
Here’s another #Owlscupcakes theme First Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELENA!

Thanks Kristel for the order! Looks like you were a busy bee the last few weeks.
Stay tune for more pictures from one of other Kriste’s daughter who had a HK birthday for her 5th birthday celebration at the local park #Cedargroveparktustin
Taking your wedding dessert a step further with pies
Exploring dessert options that could make your wedding more unique and memorable
Between planning decorations and creating guest lists and seat plans, arranging and reserving venues and DJs, and picking out flowers and dresses, the menu of the reception goes largely unnoticed. Many people will go to a tasting for entrees, work on a design for a wedding cake, pick out the silverware, but desserts are all but left in the back burner.
While Kupcakespot loves seeing a wedding with themed cupcakes and a matching wedding cake, there is also another dessert that can help you give a nice, unique twist to your wedding: pies! Everybody loves a nice, fresh serving of apple pie, or a heaping slice of a sweet, cream-filled pie. The best part about this is that there are also many different ways to serve a pie at your wedding:
1. One pie per table
This is where you can see just how well you arranged your seat plan. You could arrange for one full-sized pie that could serve six-to-twelve people to be placed on each table, so guests can serve themselves instead of waiting to be served dessert. The pies could be cut into individual slices already, or you could leave the guests to divide the pie amongst themselves.
2. Mini Pies
Mini pies function pretty much the same way cupcakes do. You could serve one per guest, decorated with something related to the theme of your wedding. You could even serve whoopie pies instead of a fruit pie.
3. Pie Bites
Taking the idea of mini pies a step further, pie bites are little bits of pie that are bite-size, making them easier to consume, and much lighter on the belly! Serving them up with different flavors will give your guests the chance to indulge on the flavor they like the most, in amounts they prefer.
When serving pies at your wedding, it’s also important to look at the kind of wine you’re serving with your pies. Serving coffee (or milk for the kiddies) would be a great way to start, but for those looking to keep the elegance of wine throughout the reception and well into dessert, the correct choice of wine is essential.
As a general rule, the color of the wine grows darker as the colour of the dessert grows darker. Looking at the filling of your pies is essential in determining what wine to serve! If you have a custard, cream-filled pie, then it’s best to go with a white wine like Riesling, or sparkling wines like demi-sec champagne, and Asti Spumanti. Fruits and other spicy fillings call for Gewirtztraminer or Sauternes, or a pink champagne. Caramels and chocolates go best with red wine like Pinot Noir, Grenache or Australian Shiraz, or maybe grappa or port.
These are often overlooked when planning the perfect wedding, but we guarantee that adding just that extra bit of detail to your plans will make your wedding much more unique and memorable than you could ever imagine.

Yes, it is possible to celebrate both occasion, and what better way really!
Irena, mother-to-be was referred to me by a mutual client a few weeks ago.
She is expecting a boy and wanted something simple and classy. Irena mentioned later on it was also their 10 years anniversary. So she decided to order a small cake to add to the occasion. We made the cake to match the colors of the mini cupcakes for the baby shower. Colors chosen were pale mint green, pale blue, and white.
The cake was decorated with various sizes of pearls. Irena saw the picture of the wedding cake I made for a wedding, “The Wedding of Stacy”.
Thanks Irena for the order. Wishing you good luck with the delivery of a healthy baby boy.
A 30th Birthday celebration with some cupcakes themed New York. The birthday person is from New York, so his wife, Cyndi thought this would be a very nice touch to the party!
Cyndi put it her order about 6 weeks in advance because she definitely wanted to use me to cater the cupcakes for her husband’s 30th surprise birthday celebration.
After a few emails and deciding on the designs within her budget, we made a final decision. “I love NY” logo are edible images. Cyndi originally wanted to rent a tower, but it was not in the budget so I suggested to her a few other options, and the NY display turned out awesome!
She sent me some pictures to share with all of you.

Thanks Cyndi for the order. Looking forward to doing more business with you in the near future!
#farmanimalscupcakes for little Jack who turned 2 last weekend.
Jack’s mom, Lauren is so sweet. We used to work together until I decided to take on a full time job and leave my second family for 7 years!
When Lauren told me she wanted to order some cupcakes, I was so excited since I did not get a chance to bake some for Jack’s First Birthday celebration. Grandma was in charge for the dessert at the time.
I haven’t done the farm animals for a while so I was definitely all over this one!
Thanks Lauren and family for the order. Hope Jack had a blast at the farm petting the animals.
Happy Birthday Jack!
Can’t believe it has been 2 years already! Time flies when you are having fun!
I am so glad our friendship flourish!
Wishing both of you a lifetime of happiness. Don’t forget the little Cams and Traceys
Always an honor to make a cake for your anniversary.
Love you both.
Happy Anniversary! Have a great celebration and relaxing weekend. You deserve it.
PS: Hope you like the cake
