Birthday cupcakes for Jack- Mickey Mouse theme

I made Jack 36 Mickey Mouse themed cupcakes; chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. I used Oreo's to make Mickey Mouse on top of the cupcakes, then used colored icing to make the polka dots.

Baby Shower

This is a strawberries and creme cupcake with a white chocolate butter cream frosting. I decorated these cupcakes for a friend's baby shower. I made the baby blocks from cake and dipped them into white chocolate. I really try to do everything by hand even if it is not perfect. The animals I did not make, but they were edible.

New flavor...cheesecake cupcakes

I am trying out a new flavor this month... it is called triple berry creme. It is a cheesecake cupcake with a triple berry sauce.. I use raspberries, blueberries and strawberries to make the sauce. Here is a sample of a cheesecake cupcake with strawberry sauce in mini form. I made these for a MOPS meeting at church.

Pittsburgh Steelers theme

This was my first attempt at the Pittsburgh Steelers Logo. I used 36 Hershey kiss cupcakes to create the logo. I am working on my art skills, but when doing displays I would prefer to use mini cupcakes. You can be more creative and flexible with them~ I also try not to use fondant, and hand pipe designs.
