Jenn's Cake

Jennifer is a darling friend of mine from the gym.  I'm so grateful that she trusted me with her cake, it was such a lovely wedding and I was so lucky to be a part of it.  Here we have 250 cupcakes in four flavors, vanilla cake with purple vanilla buttercream, churro cupcakes with dulche de leche filling and cinnamon buttercream, german chocolate cupcakes with pecan-coconut filling and dark chocolate ganache and dark chocolate cupcakes with strawberry buttercream filling and dark chocolate ganache.  phew!!! The top tier of the stand is a dark chocolate cake with strawberry buttercream covered by marshmallow fondant decorated with a freehand black royal icing lacey/webby pattern that I like ever so much.  There are so many run on sentences here I feel like I should probably just shut up.

Natalie's Cupcakes

so, you know how there are some people that you just instantly like? and then as you get to know them, you think back and get kind of proud of your intuition and think "man, I am such a good judge of character. I knew I liked this cat!" That's how I am with Natalie. She's cool. And gorgeous. Anyway, I'm so glad she had me do these cupcakes for her sister's bridal shower, I'm so glad she loved them. They are just a simple red velvet cake with classic cream cheese icing, done up like a cheetah print Louboutin. Like a boss. Like the bride.  (The "DC" is for her new initials btw.)
