Birthdays, Mother's Day & Cupcakes for a Cure :)

I try to post a blog every week, but let's be honest...I've been way to busy!!! (not a bad thing). It has been two crazy weeks full of Mother's Day cupcakes, birthdays, giveaways and giving back.

It started with mini cupcakes, for a birthday packed week at a local daycare. This dedicated provider has a birthday party for each of her little friends, and that week she had two! Flower fairy mini cupcakes for a little girl, basketball minis for a little boy.

Flower fairy minis, sprinkled with
Pixie Dust (edible glitter :)

The next day, we provided three cupcake 4 packs as draw prizes for the Business Ladies league at Kelowna Springs Golf Club. It is a great weekly evening of golf, food and prizes. We are so happy to be a part of it, providing monthly prizes and taking part in their annual Think Pink event to raise money for Breast Cancer research. Three lucky ladies took home a cupcake pack to enjoy.

Draw prize pack :) Classic Vanilla, Peanut Butter Cup-cake,
Caramel Kiss & Blackberry Lemon

We were also commissioned to create birthday cupcakes for a sixteen year old boy who loves basketball, specifically the Phoenix Suns. We replicated the logo, and decorated the vanilla, chocolate and red velvet cupcakes in team colours. We also threw in the birthday boys initial, for good measure :)

Amidst the hustle and bustle of birthday cupcakes came orders for Mother's day. Specifically, Mother's Day cupcake bouquets. So many people give their moms flowers on this special day, but flowers wilt, and enevitably end up in the trash, just a memory. Cupcake flowers, on the other hand, get eaten (a more delicious memory!) and never have time to wilt. Some gorgeous (if I do say so myself) bouquets went out our door last weekend. And, while awaiting delivery, I had the most amazing looking cooler! They were such a hit, that cupcake bouquets will become a regular on my menu of options. They make a lovely hostess gift, birthday suprise or imagine them as a wedding centerpiece! Everyone could take a cupcake home as their wedding favour as well!!!

We are very proud to be sponsoring team Up All Night for the Fight at this years Relay for Life in Kelowna (June 2nd & 3rd). I will be participating as part of the team, and providing sweets for our team as well. Gotta keep up our energy, it is a twelve hour overnight relay after all!!!
In an effort to raise money for the relay, we are baking these delicious daffodil cupcakes. All net proceeds from the sale of daffodil cupcakes will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. I am happy to say that so far this has been a success, but it is a big fight and we can always do more! So please, send in your orders, eat something yummy and support a great cause :) Visit for more details.

Cupcakes for a Cure

As always, thanks to our wonderful customers for your orders :) Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cup-cakes :)

This weekend I decided to fulfill my own craving. For a week I had been craving peanut butter cups, a wierd craving for me since as a child I loathed the chocolate/peanut butter flavour combination! I was craving it nonetheless. A simple candy would not suffice though. I must make peanut butter cup-cakes!

Peanut Butter Cup-cake :) delicious & g-free!

These sweeties were dark chocolate cupcake, peanut butter frosting, a mini peanut butter cup & a sprinkle of chopped salted peanuts. Yum!
As an added bonus, these cupcakes were also g-free for the gluten-intolerant in my family. They were thoroughly enjoyed and dissapeared quickly :)
