Merrick's 5 !!!!

My son turned 5 on June 16Th and we had a super fun birthday party! It was Mario brothers themed. We went all out... bouncy house, life sized Mario pipe for the kids to go in, he even had his very own ice cream truck come and he got to serve ice cream to his friends. I had so much fun making his cupcakes, did the standard Mario colors red and blue with a chocolate gold coin on top (got to get the coins) Plus I made them root beer flavored...the cake itself tasted like root beer with vanilla frosting so it was like eating a root beer float. It was a great day!

Chocolate rasberry

One of my best friends was hosting a candle party so of course I had to bring desert. She was making sangria so I went with something fruity and did a devils food cupcake with raspberry frosting, filled with raspberry jam and drizzled with chocolate.

Baby shower cupcakes

My boss is pregnant with her 3rd son and asked me to make cupcakes for her shower. She was having a brown and blue theme. So I did one batch of "blue velvet" which is a basic red velvet but done blue instead. Plus one batch of my honey cupcakes (which I made the frosting brown just to match the theme) Those are a creamed honey cupcake with a honey frosting, which I often fill with vanilla custard
