Happy Valentines Day!

I just finished making these sweet little mini myKakes for a precious little girl's preschool class. Her mom chose vanilla cupcakes with vanilla butter cream tinted pink, and then topped with a tiny fondant heart brushed with edible glitter....perfect for a little princess and her classmates!

Happy Birthday, Diane!

I had the privilege of making myKakes for my dear friend, Diane, for her 39th Birthday Bash! Her husband threw a fabulous party in her honor at Toulouse in Saugatuck, Michigan. She requested my cupcakes as her birthday dessert, but he mentioned he had already taken care of the dessert portion of the meal. Imagine her surprise when she found out that secretly, he already ordered my creation just for her and all her friends she dined with that evening!

Her husband and I decided upon coconut cupcakes, chocolate with chocolate butter cream, and the ever popular lemon with lavender infused butter cream. The birthday girl had three; one before dinner, one after the meal was served, and one when she returned home that evening!

Diane, I hope you had a fabulous birthday, and I thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

Myself with Diane, the honoree of the evening, and my dear friend, Veronica.

Flavors of choice:

Chocolate with chocolate butter cream
Coconut with coconut cream cheese frosting
Lemon with lavender butter cream

Diane and her husband, Rich. I think he got brownie points that evening (or should I say myKakes points)!
