Valentine's Day Cupcakes

I made these for an all-girls V-day party. I decided to make a box of cupcakes that had all of my favorite elements of Valentines Day--chocolates, hearts, and roses! I think it ended up looking like a beautiful box of chocolates!

I got the idea for the brownie cupcakes from the February issue of Martha Stewart Living. I used a cookie cutter to cut out the brownies and I put them atop a creamy pale pink buttercream...YUM!

I LOVE a Theme!

A friend of mine works in the casinos. She had a meeting thanking her employees for a job well-done. We made casino cupcakes for the event.

Cupcakes for the breast cancer bake sale through the Women's Law Caucus. I handmade each ribbon. All the proceeds from the bake sale went to the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Not-so Cakey Cupcakes

Cheesecake cupcakes with a chocolate crust and chocolate cheesecake piped on top.

Standard Cupcakes

On my quest to find the PERFECT yellow cake recipe...I made quite a few cupcakes. Now, these aren't ALL yellow cake...but most of them were made on the way to finding the perfect cake.

Chocolate peppermint cupcakes.

Birthday Cakes

Kelly's birthday cake. Carrot cake (no cinnamon!) with a classic cream cheese frosting. Mini chocolate cupcakes on top!

Marie's birthday cake. She couldn't decide on what flavor was her I did a layer of vanilla, chocolate, and chocolate chip. Covered with truffle frosting.

Easter Cupcakes

These are Easter cupcakes I took to Jim and Deb's Easter dinner last year. I used the bunny peeps held up with a toothpick. I piped on the green buttercream with the grass tip.
