Cupcakes For All Occasions

In my opinion, a cupcake is just the thing for a celebration. It's a sweet treat that fits in your hand. You don't have to share it with anyone else. The icing-to-cake ratio is just right. And you can get 'em for any occasion...

... like Saint George's Day.  That's his shield on those red velvet mini cupcakes.

... a beach party.  Sugar sand on Devil's Food cake - mmmmm!

... a five-year-old birthday.  And who doesn't love vanilla cake with a sprinkle or two??

... or a terrific soccer season.  These lemon cupcakes with a dollop of lemon curd filling were just the thing for celebrating.

The possibilities are endless!  But the end result is always the same - a smile and a few sticky fingers.  Perfect!


  1. I love these! how were they made?

  2. I used a number of different techniques... but everything is sugar paste or buttercream (except for the soccer balls - they are rubber bouncy balls). Glad you liked them!


Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - I love hearing from readers! Happy caking!
