Broken Glass Cupcakes

As I was looking around Pinterest last year, I saw these cupcakes and knew that they absolutely had to happen!

I also knew that they were a bit to grizzly to make for my kids, but as luck would have it, I had a Halloween party to attend!

The cupcakes are my very favorite Rich Chocolate Cake frosted in white buttercream and dairy free chocolate frosting (tinted black).

Of course the most important and stunning feature of these cupcakes is the broken glass…or should I say sugar glass?

That’s right, that glass is made of sugar!  In fact, it’s that same stuff they use in movies and plays when someone breaks a pane of glass over another’s head! 

I’m not going to go in to a full tutorial on sugar glass, since this was my first time trying it, but I will tell you to absolutely NOT use the recipe from inspiration link up there…terrible, just terrible!  And complete waste of ingredients.

Limoncello Cupcakes with Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

A couple weekends ago, I got to bring cupcakes to the bridal shower of one of my college friends.

Her wedding colors are navy and green, but for the shower, the décor focused on navy.

I always think it’s always fun to have cocktail-inspired cupcakes at a bridal shower.  I still had some homemade Meyer Lemon Limoncello chilling in the freezer and I loved the idea of light lemony cupcakes for the shower!

Bumble Bee Cake

I made this sweet little bumble bee cake for a baby shower.

The Mama to be didn’t know baby’s gender, so the theme was grey, yellow, and bumble bees.

Piña Colada Cake {with extra coconut!}

Two years ago, I made piña colada cupcakes.  Since I’m not a huge coconut fan, I highlighted the pineapple and let the coconut take the back seat.

But when a friend recently requested this cake for her birthday, her one request was, “don’t skimp on the coconut!”

Red Velvet Cake {Bioshock Infinite Cake}

Last week was a good friend’s birthday.

I thought pretty hard about how I wanted to decorate his cake.

I knew it had to be geeky.

Last year, the theme was The Dresden Files.

After a lot of hemming and hawing, I decided to make a Bioshock Infinite cake (if you’re unfamiliar, Bioshock Infinite is a video game).  I’ve never played Bioshock myself (I’m kind of a video game dunce), but I’ve watched Hubs play and heard him and Dan discuss the game…extensively!

Open Bible Confirmation Cake

I made this cake for my neighbor’s confirmation.

We decided to make a bible cake, but without the stereotypical ugly flowers since it was for a boy.

Abstract Peacock Cake

When my in-laws were visiting last month, I made a birthday cake for my Mother-in-law.

I had full creative freedom on this one (that rarely happens!!)  So I searched through my Pinterest boards for my own inspiration!

I ended up choosing a pretty peacock cake (inspiration found here at Cake Central!)  I just love peacock feathers (in fact peacock feathers are a big part of my office décor!)
