The cupcakes were topped with little cars that were mini replicates of the big ones and flags with the cars number.
Go Pack 459!!!
(Thanks for the great picture Kaele!)

We added a few fish cupcakes to make enough for the whole class. My friends son was in his class and he told his mom "we had the best cupcakes today!" (Thanks Noah!)
The scout boy (as my 6 year old calls them) has his troup number on his flag and the accompanying cupcakes have flags with 9 for his age. You cant see here but I put his badges on his shoulder and chest along with his "Wolf" scarf. Happy Birthday Blake!!

Another Mario Kart fan and this time his favorite character is Bowser Jr. I did two little cake platforms and then "Stars" "Bob-ombs" and Mushrooms to top the cupcakes. These cupcakes had a peanut butter filling for extra....bobomb! Happy Birthday TJ! I wish I could have been there when he realized he could EAT Bowser!

This soccer team is called the "Soccerbots" and for Seth's birthday his mom wanted something to go with the team name so we decided to make "bots" for the boys and soccerballs for everyone else.... good times.

Mini Mouse party for a little 2 year old- sweet (no pun intended) cupcakes! I love how the cupcakes tie in with Mini's bow and heart. Mini originally was going to go on the cake but she ended up being big enough to be all by herself. More details in the post below......
|Mini with a few of the cupcakes.|
|This is a 6" 4 layer cake|
|I started out planning to put her ON the cake but this is what worked.|
I took pictures along the way to show all the steps involved in this kind of project, once its finished its easy to forget what went into it so here are some of the details.... covering the cake with fondant took me three tries, the chocolate mousse made for a tricky filling, I needed to place Popsicle sticks through the layers to keep it from sliding. Next time I need to add a ganache or butter cream as well to make it stick better!
|Mini in the beginning...|
|After she dried for a couple days I added a coating of royal icing||so her face would be smooth.|
|Cutting all the pieces one by one for the cupcake toppers.|
|Using chocolate tinted pink to glue the bows together.|
|Placing the little nonpareils on one by one...|
|Making the cupcakes and cake layers- homemade chocolate mousse.|
Pink, Orange and Yellow!
These were two different parties but both had similar colors that were so bright and fun- The minis were for a wedding reception and the big cupcakes for a Jonas Brothers birthday party so they also were blinged out in silver sugar :)
