Heavenly Yet Beautiful Cupcakes
Starting my own cupcake company was a thrill and I learn so much. But I yearned for the calm of taking my time to create perfect little decorations and unique flavor combinations. After selling my business, I decided to focus on teaching my craft. I hope this site will inspire you to create and indulge in one of the best and most satisfying desserts...the cupcake.

Today was such a great day. My little cupcakes were photographed for a editorial in one of the city's hottest magazines. I spent a week creating different little ornaments to jazz up the cupcakes. I now have so much inventory of sugar pieces, I just don't know what to do. Anyway, I snuck in behind the photographer to capture the moment.

This order was created for a small wedding. I used edible silver paint to give the frosting a certain glow and added a beautiful flower. The cupcakes were placed in lace cups. They looked great and the look on the bride's face was priceless. I have to say, having a cupcake business is a great. People are always happy to see you! But the best is when I get emails telling me how yummy they were. It is such a "feel good" business. Everyone should make cupcakes!
Mother's Day week was a very busy week for my little cupcake business. I baked and baked and baked until I didn't know my own name. There were some orders that I was particularly proud of. The picture above shows an order I made for an event planner who was hosting a little brunch at her house. The only instructions I had were to make the cupcakes "over the top". So I did just that. I hand painted the butterflies in a iridescent sky blue. Each cupcake was placed in a lace cup and adorned with several flowers and sugar beads. I walked into her house feeling like I was carrying a work of art, a true testimony of utter fabulousness!
