Another Baby (SWEET LITTLE TAVIN!!!) was the reason for these fun cupcakes- his parents decorated his room with a sport theme, (and it looks STRAIGHT out of baby dream rooms catalog!) and his dad is a baseball player so of course, a lot of fun with this one! Couldnt help going a little overboard... The large baseballs are "cake pops" (thanks Bakerella!) that I lined with red chocolate, and the little baseballs are dutch mints. It was a long night putting all those stripes on but I loved the way they turned out.
Baby showers are so fun because there are ENDLESS ideas and things to do for them. On this one I did use fondant but made sure there was a LOT of good frosting underneath! The baby boy with the bears I made for my friends Teacher who is leaving to have a baby. The children in the class get the bear and bottle cupcakes while the teacher gets the big one :)
I got to do a really fun project- for a Young Women's in Excellence night at church the theme was "more precious than Rubies" talking about these special young ladies of course, so in line with their yellow brick road I was asked to make Ruby slippers. They ended up being more princess like than Dorothy's actual ruby slippers because all the ones I found on line looked more like baby shoes when made with fondant so I went with a more elegant look :)
I made the girls cupcakes larger than the rest with an extra liner to make them stand out.
