Charlene (Charbot) & Kristopher’s (Robot) Solemnization

I’m sorry for taking a while to update — March has been mad! On top of taking my Diplomas (I’ll finish my Royal Icing Diploma next Saturday!!), I’ve been back-to-back with orders every weekend and loving every minute of it! πŸ™‚

Anyway, I had the opportunity to make cupcakes for a couple’s solemnization — Robot Themed! In total, I made 75 cupcakes in two flavors, Nutella & Vanilla — a lot of work for my little oven and my not-quite-so-little KitchenAid πŸ˜‰

I was really tickled by this drawing, note theΒ strategically placed transparent magnets… πŸ˜‰

Do note that the cupcake stand was provided by the venue/ my customer πŸ™‚

Old designs and old friends ;)

I’m in to week 10 of Spring 2012 now, which means in five weeks Β I get a (short, but nonetheless) break till Summer 2012 starts. Can’t wait! Anyway, the weekends have been particularly hectic – last weekend I made cupcakes for a solemnization on Saturday and had another cupcake order on Sunday… I’m waiting for pictures from the official event photographer because I get nervous shooting with too many people around…  😦

These cakes below were made the week before last.. haven’t had time to post them up till now! πŸ™‚

Chocolate Fudge 6″ x 4″ & Β 8″ x 4″Β 

One of my cousins called and asked if I could replicate a cake that I made last December for his Boss’s birthday which was in four days time. A little stressed but I think I pulled it off? πŸ™‚

My aunt who attended the celebration told me that the cake was only going to be cut at midnight — had a hard time concentrating on anything till then !

Red Velvet with Cream Cheese FrostingΒ 

Simple fondant pieces spelling out the recipient’s name with loads of glitter! Edible of course πŸ˜‰ Requested by my poly friend who loved it so much, she’s ordering again next week! Thanks Edinna!! πŸ™‚
