Milkshake Cupcakes

I saw a recent posting on a site I follow, Bakerella. She was featuring some new paper straws that she bought and what she made with them. The outcome was milkshake cupcakes. They were really cute, and I was anxious to try to recreate them.

I decided to give them a whirl for my mother-in-law's upcoming birthday! I figured they would be the right sweet treat for the celebration. So I gathered my supplies and began to whip them up.

Checkout my version of Milkshake Cupcakes below:

I changed my version up a little bit. Instead of using silicone liners, I used some that look like bowls. I also didn't have cute paper straws, but regular colored ones work just as well. Then I opted for vanilla cake over strawberry...vanilla is more of a crowd favorite! :)

Just goes to show that you can recreate things you see on the Internet. Might not be exact, but it still turned out cute. Happy Birthday Debbie!

Happy Baking,

Are you ready to ROCK?

My neighbor's daughter is turning 13 this weekend. To celebrate they are taking a limo ride to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. Pretty neat huh? Since no birthday party is complete without cupcakes, they asked me to whip up some rock and roll themed ones.

The setup
Enjoy your cupcakes Gabby. Hope you have a great birthday.

Party Cakes in ACTION

In mid December I made cupcakes for Little H's first birthday. His Mom sent me a picture of the final party setup. Really adorable. I am impressed by all of the cupcake stands my clients have made.

Thanks again Ms. K for letting me be a part of your son's birthday.

Happy Baking,
