Cookies and Cream

I've added a new member to the family

My new Cookies and Cream cupcake. It's a chocolate cupcake with an oreo type cookie inside topped with cookies and cream frosting.

If I do say so myself, they were delicious! Actually my taste testers deemed them as one of their new favorites as well.

My father-in-law's birthday co-incided with it's conception so I thought I would give shipping another go and see how they fared.

They made it in tact with no harm done. You just snip the tip of the frosting bag and frost the cupcakes yourself. They may not be quite as pretty, but they still are tasty!

Halloween and a Party

I'm a little late in getting the last of my Halloween cupcakes up. Oh well, ideas for next year!

These are vanilla cupcakes tinted orange with chocolate buttercream. I had the cute bat liners so I thought I would match that. I had some leftover pie crust from something so I used that to cut out tiny bats and baked them. After they cooled I piped chocolate on the tops of them and took orange sprinkles and cut them in half for the eyes.

Sometimes I'm a little hesitant to reveal my secrets because then ya'll will know how easy it all really is : )

In addition to the Halloween cupcakes I did this cute cupcake tower this weekend for a surprise 50th birthday party. I'm a little rusty on cakes (as in it's been a year since I've made one?!), so I was thrilled with how it turned out. No worries though the cake pans are officially dusted off and my cake skills are returning.

The cake and bottom layer cupcakes are Snickerdoodle cupcakes and the other ones are double chocolate. All the decorations are edible.

So now that Halloween has passed (in my mind) it's officially Christmas season. I am SO excited. I have so many Christmas cupcake ideas swirling in my head that I can't wait to try out. and show ya'll. Except we just have to get over this whole Thanksgiving pie phase I'm in. Oh well, only a few more weeks!

Thanksgiving Flavors

I've had some more questions regarding holiday orders. So here is my attempt to answer some of them:
I do cupcakes and pies (among other things, but for the holidays...)

I can do full size pies or mini pies (pictures below)

Recommended cupcake flavors for the holiday would be: caramel apple (apple cinnamon cupcake with a dulce de leche frosting), pumpkin spice with cinnamon cream cheese frosting, or snickerdoodle cupcakes, but all flavors are available and feel free to do something crazy, like Pina Colada!

Pie flavors: apple pie, apple crisp pie (instead of a crust on top it's topped with a crisp topping), pumpkin, pecan, and chocolate

All holiday orders must be placed by November 20th. ATL day for holiday order pick ups will be the Monday of Thanksgiving week. STL order pick ups will be the day before Thanksgiving (Wednesday). My hope is to do most of the pick ups in STL around the Chesterfield Valley area.

If you have any other questions, or want pricing information, please feel free to email me at
