Also, just in time for the Holidays, we are offering gift boxes of truffles.

Bowling for cupcakes

It's hard to see in the picture, but there are chocolate chips on the bowling balls that are the holes were your fingers go.

Pumpkin & fall cupcakes

Last week I had an order for mini pumpkin cupcakes and fall themed cupcakes.  The pumpkins are mini cupcakes topped with donut holes.  They were delish, even if I do say so myself!

Mini pumpkin cupcakes plus coconut cupcakes.

Birthday cupcakes

Last week I had an order for birthday cupcakes for a work birthday party. Their only request was chocolate so I figured I would add a little turquoise since that's what I do.

Jungle birthday party

Last weekend was our friend William's first birthday. It was a jungle theme so we made a giraffe smash cake and lion, tiger, monkey and zebra cupcakes.

Garden cupcakes

As part of the Elizabeth home tour, I made these mini garden cupcakes for a dinner on Saturday night.

Hydrangea cupcakes

As part of the Elizabeth home tour, I made hydrangea for one of the houses. When I heard this house had turquoise bar stools, I knew I needed to do something turquoise.

Here are the Eliz bumper sticker cupcakes I made for one of the houses on the Elizabeth home tour.

Black & White Cupcakes and Cake Pops

Whew, what a weekend!  Thanks to Jen from Soiree Charlotte, we had our largest order to date: 150 cupcakes and 200 cake pops.  It was for a bar mitzvah for twin boys.  The theme was black & white so my cupcakes and cake pops were made accordingly.
