The wedding colors were lavender and pink. Each cupcake was wrapped with a piece of pink grosgrain ribbon and topped with lavender colored fondant cutouts. We also embellished each favor box with a fresh lavender colored rose. These were fun to make.
This tower was created for a graduate from Nursing School. They requested Heart cutouts as toppers on the cupcakes because the graduate will be working in the Cardiology department of her Hospital. We made seven dozen mixed flavors and every single cupcake was gone by the end of the party!
We embossed each heart cutout with swirl stamps. I learned this technique from Melody of My Sweet and Saucy. Thanks Melody!
The matching Nurse cake was decorated with a Nurse’s Cap, stethoscope and blood pressure cuff. This was a fun cake to make and the graduate was very pleased.
My family and I participate in the Annual Relay For Life of Watsonville held in August. Sweet Roxy’s baked this batch of cupcakes up for a team meeting and decorated them with the purple Relay Ribbon.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with Relay For Life, it is an American Cancer Society signature event. Relay is an overnight occasion designed to raise funds and empower the local community to fight back against cancer. I highly encourage you all to join us next year for Relay 09!
These cupcakes were made for Precision Mercedes, the exclusive Mercedes Benz service provider in Santa Cruz County. We used fondant to replicate their clock logo on the cupcakes. Check out the PM website and let me know what you think of our logo replication.
The fundraiser and the cupcakes were a hit and Sweet Roxy’s was proud to be a part of such a great event.
Finally, my blog is up and running! This year I have been creating different cupcake combinations and learning different ways to customize them for special occasions. I will be posting photos of past cupcakes I have created and customized for these events. I am excited and look forward to sharing my photos and ideas with you all!
