We created this green, yellow and brown cupcake tower for a bug themed birthday party. The topper cake was iced green, bordered with piped buttercream grass, covered with branches and leaves and topped with insects and other critters. Half the cupcakes were topped with a 6 and hald the cupcakes were topped with more critters - scorpians, spiders, worms, ladybugs, dragon flies, butterflies, moths, insections and inch worms. Our customer rented our 4 tier cupcake tower to display the cake and cupcakes.
We recently donated a custom cupcake gift certifcate to the Laguna Elementary School's PTA for the fundraising auction. The winner of the gift certificate ordered cupcakes for her son to celebrate a great year. We used the cupcakes to spell out his name and topped with remaining cupcakes with music notes and an electric guitar.
Last year we gave away a gift certificate for custom cupcakes over on Scottsdale Moms Blog and the winner used the gift certificate to order cupcakes for her son's 8th grade commencement celebration this week. He's a future Sandra Day O'Conner High School student so we did everything in the school colors, blue and yellow. Cupcakes were topped with "congratulations", A+, stars, 2015, SDOHS, golf ball, music notes, drum and math symbols - all things to represent his academic successes, interests and future high school days.
We previously made a cake for this family - their dad's 40th birthday, a personalized tequilla bottle cake:
again so much for the cupcakes that you did for C's 8th grade commencement celebration. They were perfect in every way. Everyone was impressed with how each one of them reflected C's interests in some way or referenced his future at SDOH! You are so creative and talented. B.L.
We created this 1 tier cake covered in stars for a 3rd birthday Toy Story Celebration. Our custom added Buzz Lightyear and other Toy Story characters to the cake. We also created mini cupcakes for Gavin's preschool celebration topped with rockets, moon, stars and letters to spell out the message.

We created this cupcake tower for Camelback Desert Schools PTO All in For Kids fundraising event. The event's theme was casino night so we baked the cupcakes in red and black foil cupcake liners and topped the cupcakes with hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs.

We created this blue and red cupcake tower for a University of Arizona graduation party. The cupcakes were baked in red and blue cupcake liners and topped with an A and 2011. The topper cake is decorated with blue and red stripes and topped with a 3D graduation hat (made from white chocolate). Our customer rented our 4 tier white cupcake tower for her party. Cupcake towers are great for graduation parties which are often open house style and guests can help themselves and your display isn't ruined because the cake is cut. Often our customers save the cake for after after the guests have left to enjoy as a small family celebration.
We created 75 chocolate dipped fortune cookie favors for a University of Arizona graduation party. They were serving an asian themed meal so fortune cookies were the perfect favor - decorated in red and blue of U of A.

Our customer ordered these to be served at the reception following her dissertation defense. She had ordered the orange and red daisy cupcakes for her daughter's birthday earlier in the year and loved the design so much that she reordered it adding in the butterflies. We delivered these cupcakes to Arizona State University.
My dissertation went well. Thank you for delivering the cupcakes. Everyone was impressed with the design. It went fast, although the daisy chocolate ones went faster than the butterfly ones, :)
Congratulations Mei on a successful dissertation!

We've made a lot of cakes for this family so our customer thought this would be a perfect Mother's Day surprise to order his wife a cake topped with her favorite flower, calla lilies. She loves our white almond sour cream cake with lemon cream filling. The side of the cake is covered in a buttercream piped cornelli lace pattern.
This was a really fun cake to do. One of our customers asked ask to create a gender reveal cake for Mother's Day. She was finding out the sex of their 3rd baby on Friday and decided it would be a fun Mother's Day surprise for the family to order a cake. She brought the ultrasound results to us so that we could color the cake pink or blue. We created a similar cake for a gender reveal party a few months ago but this one was even more exciting because even the mom didn't know the sex yet. The cake is a 6 inch round with 3 layers of white cake - we tinted the batter of the middle layer.
So was it pink or blue????
