Recent Cupcakes!

Mini Cupcakes!, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

Last week was a particularly popular week for cupcakes! These mini cupcakes were created for a graduation party. I love the two toned rosette buttercream design! (Photo courtesy of The Catering Company, Chapel Hill, NC).

The Kitty Cupcakes were the perfect treat for a sweet 6 year old birthday girl who had a kitten themed birthday party! I borrowed the design from the famous "Hello Cupcake" book, but used Strawberry Buttercream to match the pink theme of the party!

Acoustic Guitar Cake

Acoustic Guitar Cake, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

This cake was created for the 21st birthday of a serious guitar playing music lover! In order to maximize cake I honed in on the beautiful design on the Gibson Hummingbird Guitar. The cake itself was Baker's Cake Signature Chocolate with Double Chocolate Butterceeam Frosting and marshmallow filling with crushed graham crackers! Yes, it was a S'mores Cake!!! It was covered in both vanilla and chocolate rolled fondant to capture the look of the acoustic guitar.

Strawberry Shortcake Cake!

Strawberry Shortcake Cake!, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

It's strawberry season in North Carolina and this was the perfect cake to celebrate the season last week. The Birthday Girl was having her party at a strawberry patch and requested a Strawberry Shortcake character cake made out of Strawberry Cake and Fresh Strawberry Buttercream! I love the updated Strawberry Shortcake character, and I just had to include Strawberry's cat, Custard! The rows of strawberry plants are growing out of Chocolate Buttercream and crushed chocolate cookie "dirt." I created the plants out of Vanilla Buttercream and Fondant flowers and strawberries. As Strawberry would say, "Something berry special is happening in the berry patch!"
