Easter Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes

For Easter dessert I decided to make strawberry mini cupcakes with champagne buttercream, chocolate ganache and champagne soaked strawberries. I layered them together in the champagne flutes. It was the perfect amount of sweet for dessert. They were incredible!

Birthday Limoncello Cupcakes

My step-mom has been dying to try my lemon cupcakes with lemon curd filling and lemon cream cheese frosting. So, for her and my Uncle's birthday celebration I decided to change it up a little and make Limoncello cupcakes with lemon curd filling and a limoncello buttercream. They turned out better than I could have imagined. They were definitely a little more exciting than a regular lemon cupcake.

30th Birthday Cupcakes

I recently got an order for cupcakes for a 30th birthday. The only catch was that the cupcakes had to be made excluding very specific ingredients due to a food allergy. After a couple rounds of tester cupcakes, I finally got a product that I was ok with. It was nice to be able to give the birthday girl a cupcake she could actually eat and enjoy. I also made the cupcake stand. It was my first attempt and I learned a lot from it. I love the way that it came out. It was a fun art project to do a few days before the delivery.
