An attempt at "Gormet" Cupcakes

A friend of mine gets the "cupcake of the month" 
delivered to her at work. The cupcakes are always
so amazing and I realized that I really need to step up my game.
These are Salted Caramel Chocolate cupcakes. They
are chocolate cake, with caramel inserted then a
dark chocolate buttercream with a drizzle of 
caramel and pink Himalayan sea salt on top.
They were delicious, if I do say so myself. However, 
you definitely need at least one glass of milk per cupcake!

Birthdays and a Graduation cake

 The above cake traveled to Twin Falls, Idaho 
for the graduation celebration of my friend's son,
Avery! Congrats, Avery! This cake was chocolate
with cookies n cream filling.
 The Chevy cake was for my neighbor's grandson,
Dillon. I remember the day Dillon was born and now
he's 16! That is ridiculous! This was a yellow cake
with cookies n cream filling and chocolate buttercream frosting.
This springtime-y cake was to celebrate the 
birthday of a beloved teacher. The student's mom
really wanted to show this teacher how much she was appreciated.
This was a strawberry cake with strawberry buttercream filling.
Happy Birthday, Mrs. Nichols!

Hippie Van Graduation Cake

 This girl. She is full of life and laughter. I have 
known her since she was 6 months old, and here she is, 
graduating! Congratulations, Hayley!
This cake was so much fun to make. Yet another cake
that I said "yes" to, not knowing if I was really capable of 
creating it! It was also my first vegan cake. The response
on the flavor and taste..."It tasted GREAT!" I am one happy camper.
