Treats for Sale!!

On Saturday, April 30th I will be selling cupcakes and cake balls at a home boutique that my friend Nikki is hosting. I will have some new yummy flavors of both cupcakes and cake balls, so please stop by! Various other vendors will be there as well, including The Ritzy Glitzy Baby Boutique and Dana Grogger Designs. See the flyer below for more info :-)

C is for cupcakes, cake balls, & creating new recipes...

Over the past few weeks I tried out some new recipes and came up with some pretty yummy treats.

For St. Patrick's Day I thought it would be fun to make some cupcakes and cake balls using Bailey's Irish Cream..they turned out really good! The cupcakes were vanilla and topped with Bailey's buttercream frosting. The cake balls were vanilla cake mixed with Bailey's buttercream frosting which I dipped in white and green tinted white chocolate for a festive touch.

I also decided to try my hand at re-creating the raspberry cupcake from my favorite bakery, and they turned out SO good! I'm usually more inclined to choose anything chocolate over anything with fruit in it, but I have to say these cupcakes are some my favorite that I've made. I made white chocolate raspberry cake balls as well, and they were very tasty too!

Enjoy the pictures :-)

The Past Pictures..

Here are some pictures from different baking orders that I've fulfilled over the past's been so fun to be able to share my baked goods with so many people. It's great to be able to spend so much time doing something that I love! Dark Chocolate cake balls are becoming quite a hot seller for those who are chocoholics, and red velvet cupcakes and cake balls remain a crowd pleaser. I tried out a new cake ball flavor- vanilla cookies 'n cream (vanilla cake infused with vanilla oreos mixed with vanilla buttercream, dipped in white chocolate and topped with vanilla oreo crumbles), and those were a huge hit! The pictures I took of them didn't turn out well at all, so next time I make them I will post some better pictures.
