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.

Getting There

I haven't posted in a while. I have been swamped with orders, which, yes I know, is a good thing. And when I'm not baking I'm finishing my business plan so I can open my own shop. I'm almost finished and thanks to the help of my Father, my business plan will be solid. Having a former World Bank senior director as a Father definitely made a difference.

In the meantime, I have been working on polishing up my website and booking weddings and events. My carpenter is working feverishly to finish additional cupcake towers. We're getting a heart shaped one! It's adorable. I can't wait to photograph it and post it online.

This weekend I have a baby shower and Success In The City is having a little afternoon event at Saks Fifth Avenue. This will be the first time I put a logo on a cupcake. I'm trying to be creative with the presentation but I'm so limited if the logo has to be the focus of the cupcake. I want to add a little flower or maybe some sugar beads. But I'm scared it will look tacky.

The baby shower should be cute. I'm creating blush, pink and dark pink flowers to adorn the cupcakes. So cute!
