Construction Site Cupcakes

My friend Colleen threw a construction themed 2nd birthday party for her son. She made an amazing cake which you can see in this photo:

These are the cupcakes I made to compliment her cake:

BBQ Grill Cupcakes

Our Lions club had a BBQ, and so I made these cupcakes!

For the grill grate, I piped Wilton dark chocolate candy melts. The hot dog and hamburger are fondant with black food coloring for the lines, and the kabob is cut up gummy bears on a toothpick! I think they turned out super cute!

Coppertone Clearly Sheer Buzz Campaign

With summer coming, I was super excited to get a sunscreen buzz campaign! I got the campaign for COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer sunscreens! 

I was really excited to get my buzz kit in the mail:

I have already tried the sunscreen and LOVE IT! I use the spray for my son, since he can't sit still long enough for me to put on lotion, and I love how it feels so light. I can easily use it on my face without my face feeling all oily.

"Vintage Elegance" Cupcakes

A former coworker asked me if I would make cupcakes and a cake for her sisters bachelorette party. I was really excited about the vintage elegance theme!

I'm sorry to say that the cake turned out to be a disaster. I'm not quite sure what went wrong. It fell apart in the car when she was on her way to the party.

The saving grace was the fact that the cupcakes turned out so beautifully! 

Burt's Bees Baby Bee House Party

How lucky was I to get this house party? I was able to give samples to all my mommy friends!

Bottle and Bottega Owl Painting

If you have never been to Bottle and Bottega - GO! It was SO MUCH FUN! I went with a group of fellow mommies. We had an amazing time!


Heart Wreath

I made this for a coworker to cheer her up while her mother was sick. She had shown me a picture of a similar wreath in the past and said how much she liked it and how she wished she was crafty enough to make one. Note: she really likes birds!
