So, I’M ALIVE! Back from the no-cupcake land. Well, not really… I’ve actually been baking on and off the past few months… just not like crazy.town.cupcake.style.
Wowzers, time flies when you life completely turns around. The past 4 months have been a whirlwind. I sadly had to decline or cancel almost 3 dozen orders between August and this week. Why, you ask? Mainly, my new job and newbie training period, and my life adjusting in general with a new schedule… my 30th! week-long birthday shenanigans, new AMAZING busy job, Rochester New York, beach trip, ups and downs of a learning a new industry, co-ed softball team, training and running my 2nd half marathon, and Thanksgiving.
That pretty much catches me up to our life! I made the cupcakes below so long ago that it almost took me a second to remember who I actually baked and decorated these beauties for… Miss Gorgeous Kasey in August!
We decided on chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with a mix of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate frostings topped with little frilly pink bows and flowers. I wanted the chrystanthemums to look alive… some fully opened, others awakening, some closed… pink as can be!
I really loved making these toppers even though they took almost a week to complete. The bows are ridiculously cute and the flowers added a special girly touch. Thank you Kasey for inviting me to be a part of your friend’s Baby Shower! Congratulations to her on the amazing path to motherhood.
Cheers to me blogging again! More to come… it’s the holidays of course! You know I have some projects up my sleeve.
