Golden State Warrior Cupcakes 

These cupcakes were made to celebrate the birthday of a big fan of the warriors. They are vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with butter cream and chocolate frosting.  I made the toppers using Avery labels and tooth picks.

Strawberry Cake Balls


Although cake pops and cake balls are cute and delicious they may not seem to be much fun to make to some people. I enjoy making them but I must admit they a lot of work to make. I have included a couple pictures of the steps.

Chocolate and Chess


As a devoted chocolate lover, I am always looking for different ways to decorate my chocolate cupcakes. These are very moist and rich with chocolate flavor. The frosting is chocolate buttercream. I used a few different frosting tips to decorate these cupcakes. Now that I made them, I just need an occasion like a chess game to share them.

Rainbow Cake Pop Treats 


Everyone immediately wanted one as soon as I put these on the table. It was a good thing I only put a few of them out for the lunch gathering for my family reunion. Otherwise, there would have been none left for the big dinner gathering. I am just glad everyone enjoyed them.
