A June Birthday

Wow…It’s July 1st already! The year is halfway over!

Just wanted to share a June 29th birthday that we celebrated at work.

Thanks to my good friend Rosaly for the cupcake stand and to Target for the silver tray I found on clearance, I’ve managed to create a happy little daisy cupcake display!!

A Very Sweet Birthday!

I LOVE  baking and making things for friends, family, and co-workers… but this time, I got to eat TONS of goodies that were made for me!

…and an incredibly delicious cake from Andre Thierry Tellier

Thanks everyone!! I had an amazing birthday!

Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

Birthdays really bring out the baker in everyone! A very good friend made some super yummy cupcakes, as seen in Martha Stewart Living: Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

Thanks so much for letting us be the guinea pigs in your baking experiment! They were awesome! I love your blog and I can’t wait to see what you cook next!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I know, I am very, very behind on my blogging. Forgive me while I try to catch up!

March was a very busy birthday month! I celebrated at least 7 of them! These were for a co-worker…

Inspired by the delicious Michael Jackson cupcake that I had at Hey Cupcake in Austin…

Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting!

I love these foil cupcake liners…you don’t have to use a cupcake/muffin pan!

Retirement Party, Part 1

A good friend from my old stomping grounds was retiring…A good excuse to visit Austin (as if I needed an excuse!).

I was tasked with a celebratory baked good. I decided to go with the classic cupcake and chose lemon with vanilla icing.

I used the large tip from my Williams-Sonoma Mechanical Pastry Bag, and went sans sprinkles.

I made some cupcake picks to spell out “Happy Retirement Wayne!”

First, print out the words onto colored or patterned paper. Be sure to space them out depending on the diameter of your circles. Mine are 1-1/4 inch. It’s really handy if you have a circle cutter and self-healing mat and I especially like this one by Fiskars since it is clear and I can center the letters.

Then just tape some toothpicks or fruit skewers to the back! If you’re very particular, you could cut out some blank circles and “sandwich” the toothpick in between two circles with double-sided tape.

Final Product..okay, this picture was taken at a bad angle, so it just looks like a jumble of letters!
