My fancy Flower design Frosting 

This is my interpretation of a fancy flower design. I used the orange and white frosting and was trying to get the white on the ends. I think they look ok but I need to work on the technique a bit more. Please like and or leave comments.

Flower carrot cupcakes

Carrot cupcakes

Carrot Cupcakes 

These cupcakes are loaded with carrots. I have been experimenting with different piping tools and mixing colors for frosting cupcakes. I want the cupcakes to look noticeably different although a lot of the cupcakes have cream cheese frosting. I think I will also use a different piping tip for them next time I make them. Previously, I used larger gummy carrot pieces as toppers and I see that these mini candy carrots I used on these cupcakes are much smaller than I expected. 

2017 Eagles Landing High School Graduation Cupcakes 

I had the pleasure of decorating strawberry and red velvet cupcakes for a high school graduation party. Trying to keep the school colors with pink colored strawberry cupcakes was a challenge but the end results look nice. I used blue cupcake liners to bake the cupcakes. After frosting them , I used blue and yellow food color spray on the cupcakes then topped them with the school logo picks I made using address labels and toothpicks.

Yummy Sweet Potato Cupcakes 

The smell of sweet potatoes with cinnamon and brown sugar will grab you when this container is opened. These cupcakes are moist and loaded with sweet potatoes. The frosting is butter cream with a little cream cheese added for more flavor. I did not have any corn candy to use as toppers so I topped the cupcakes with mini flowers I had previously made from frosting and frozen.

Vanilla Vanilla Cupcakes 

Most people that like vanilla cupcakes don’t care if it’s the basic vanilla, French vanilla or vanilla bean. At one time I like most did not know the difference or that there was a difference. All I knew was that Breyer’s vanilla ice cream had little beans in it and had a better flavor. Since I personally thought vanilla was boring I initially would add a bit of almond extract to give the cupcakes more flavor. I later tried French vanilla extract in my vanilla cupcakes but not all grocery stores have it. Last year I decided to try vanilla bean. I was very surprised to find the few bean stalks in a jar and then had to scrape them from the stalks. This was too much work so I tried vanilla bean paste. I like the paste but I quickly realized I did not need to use much because it is very strong.

These are vanilla bean cupcakes with vanilla bean frosting.
