Happy 11th Birthday Avery!
Next we had a few Lollipops for a Bachelorette event. Being a teacher, I didn't feel comfortable posting picture of those lollipops but I'm sure you can guess what they looked like if you use your imagination! Along with that I was asked to make a simple personal Jumbo Cupcake for the party. I fell in love with this one as I was making it, it's so cute!
Next, I had a cupcake order for a Bridal shower, pics will have to be posted later for I don't want to ruin the surprise for the bride. Check back Sunday.
And Finally the Mother of all cakes, this one needs it's own post!

Here it is the Mother of all Cakes, it's actually a Cupcake Cake made of 64 cupcakes. This was the first time I had ever done a cupcake cake and I am actually very surprised how well it went. Usually I work with Fondant, Since each cupcake needs to be free to pull apart from the cake, I used buttercream. This was quite a challenge for me because I had never done buttercream free-hand characters before. I am proud of the way it turned out!
This is also my largest cake to date measuring at 2' x 2' this baby needs to be carried with both arms and let me tell you, it is a work out!
