Good things come in small packages

Start spreading the news!  Whether you are headed to the big apple...

...or celebrating a new little one, cupcakes are a fun way to party. 

Pirates like them...

... cowboys and beach babes too.

A cupcake can help you whistle a happy tune.

But the best cupcake, of course, is the one with your initials on it.  Mmm!  All for you!

Here it is... one of my new favorite cakes!

I have been wanting to make a mad scientist cake for a while now.  I have a degree in Molecular Biology and a real love for all things scientific.  So, imagine my excitement when one of my favorite former students asked about a cake for his science-themed birthday party!

The party guests made slime and did experiments and launched rockets... and, of course, they ate cake and cupcakes too!

It's just like I was back in a laboratory in college... petri dishes, test tubes and flasks.  If only I could say that I had a professor that looked like this mad scientist.  Ha ha!

Two Birthdays for the Price of One

I just love cakes that tell a story!  Once upon a time there were two babies born on the exact same day in same year in the same town.  They went to the same school and were even in the same first grade class.  In fact, they shared a birthday party in their class that year.  Fast forward sixty-five years... these two are still celebrating their birthday together.  Only these days they are partying with their two children and four grandchildren!

Here they are at their first grade party.

Here's the cake I made for their 65th birthday party!

Happy birthday, Eva and Fenton!

Happy Graduation, Wolfpack!

It's graduation weekend at NC State and that means lots of people, lots of parties and lots of cupcakes here in Raleigh.  I whipped up a big batch of chocolate and vanilla treats to help one recent grad celebrate her accomplishments.  Who doesn't feel special when biting into a chocolate cupcake with Mr. Wuf sitting on top, right?  Congratulations, Savannah!
