Not just a box of chocolate!

Found some cute heart boxes (and saved a large chocolate box from last year) to fill with the mini cupcakes and little cake balls!

Winter Princesses!

I posted some "making of" pics earlier but here are some of the end result..... It was so fun to see the birthday girl Gabrielle when I brought her cake in! I made 9 of the cupcake princesses not knowing ahead how many would fit on the cake. They werent too hard to make just a lot of little steps (and patience!) I ended up only putting 5 on and some of them were cut in half to fit on the little ledge. I did my favorite white chocolate buttercream on the cake with a layer of seven minute frosting on top to give it that swoopy shiny texture. I got the idea for these cute princess cupcakes from a cupcake book!

I saved this chocolate heart box from last year to fill with mini cupcakes and cake balls- a fun February treat for birthdays and "just because!"
