So long cupcakes plus a little bit of Christmas

So long, farewell, (auf wiedersehen is too long to fit on a cupcake), goodbye!
Going away flourless chocolate cupcakes plus some regular chocolate Christmas tree cupcakes.

More Christmas Cupcakes

The reindeer cupcakes were definitely our most popular cupcakes of the Christmas season.  This was a gift to a little boy so we did melting snowmen, reindeer and Christmas trees.

Reindeer, melting snowmen & Christmas tree cupcakes
Someone said that the snowmen look like they are break dancing.  It cracked me up.

That's not a cupcake

I found a veggie turkey online (sorry can't remember where or I would give credit) and sent it to my mom for Thanksgiving.  She signed up to bring veggies to my aunt's house for Thanksgiving so she surprised everyone with another "turkey."

How cute is that?  Couldn't help but share since I am catching up on pictures.

Rice Krispie Pops

One of the boys in Sloan's playgroup was turning 1 so I thought I would do something different and make Rice Krispie Treat Pops instead of cupcakes.

They were a hit.

Rice Krispie Treat Pops dipped in dark chocolate and covered in sprinkles.

Sampling the treats prior to the birthday.

Snowman Cake & Rice Krispie Cake

Funny story about this cake.  The Charlotte Cupcake Cousins were actually unknowingly born 10+ years ago when I decorated this cake for about 2 hours and Danielle chopped it in half.

I have been so scarred, I haven't been able to make it since.  Well this year, my mom convinced me to decorate it not one but two times.  Luckily I have gotten a lot faster at decorating in 10 years so I did not have to spend 2 hours on it.

Since Danielle wasn't able to attend this dinner, our cousin Nicholas did the honors of chopping it in half (more pictures of the evidence to come later).

Wake Forest Graduation Cupcakes

You may have noticed a theme with Wake Forest Cupcakes.  This was for a last day of class party for the WFU MBA program.

We were asked to make cupcakes for the Wake Forest University Charlotte Campus Holiday Party.  Here is our display of 150 cupcakes: Reindeer, Santa Hats, Snowflakes & WFU.

 On another note, we now offer cupcake display rentals.  This display holds up to 200 cupcakes.

Christmas Cupcakes

Wow! I just realized how behind I was on posting cupcakes.  Since I last posted a picture, we have made over 600 cupcakes.  So its not that we haven't been making cupcakes, its that I've been too busy to post!

Christmas Tree Cupcakes, Reindeer Cupcakes & Wreath Cupcakes
The Christmas tree cupcakes have to be my favorite of the season.  The only problem is that no one knows how to eat them!
