Happy Mother’s Day to all the great mama’s out there! How fitting that my sweet friend, A, is having a BABY BOY! To celebrate, naturally, I made lots and lots of sweets for her shower this weekend. I had a vision of a tower of cupcakes topped off with a miniature cake displaying baby’s monogram in all it’s glory.
Check it out:
White chocolate cupcake with cream cheese icing and fresh strawberries.
Chocolate cupcake with DELISH peanut butter icing.
Pineapple upside down cupcakes. Need I say more?
White cake with chocolate frosting. I had the patch made through Pinwheel Kids in Waco. I thought it would make a great cake topper, and so it did! Plus, it made for an extra gift for mom-to-be. The frosting washed off nicely, and it can be stitched onto a onesie, burp-cloth, blanket, you name it!
The finished product. A delight! Magnificent! Happiness and frills and glee! And LOTS of leftover cupcakes.
What made your weekend sweet?
Mmm, Mmm. Today is a SWEET Sunday. I made Sticky Pecan Pie Bars for only the millionth time thanks to the best bake-book EVER (when it comes to cakes), The Cake Doctor. Even non-nut lovers have been known to drool over this recipe. Seriously, only CRAZY people don’t love these. They are SO good.

Anything making your Tuesday especially sweet?
Sunny Saturdays are always sweet, especially when they involve frilling birthday cakes. A friend of mine needed a bold and bright cake for the monster-themed 2nd birthday of one adorably cute tot. Bold you want? Bold I can deliver! It was tons of fun being playful and creative with this colorful cake.

This is a French Vanilla cake with Almond Butter Cream Icing. Sorry for the poor lighting. Unfortunately, the sun and I were unable to coordinate our schedules properly.
