Katie the Caterer?

Pin It!

I got another decorating “job” over the weekend. One of our neighbors just turned 16, and her mom asked if she could hire me to make cupcakes. Of course I said yes!

It was a really easy job, too– the mom told me exactly how she wanted the cupcakes done (purple icing with pink hearts). So, for the sixteenth birthday party, I made sixteen of the following:

(Another angle)

The cupcake recipe is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (as usual), and the hearts are made out of fondant. People have been emailing/leaving comments asking if I can write a post on how to use fondant. So be on the lookout for such a post in the near future!

As always, I know I’m way behind on commenting… I’ll try and catch up after my next post. For now, though, it’s so hot that I’m going to immerse myself in my friend’s pool until my fingers turn into raisins. Sounds like an idea and a half, no?

    Those are very sweet 16, very cute. I’m interested in learning about fondant! I don’t think I’m too intimidated, it’s just not something I’ve ever used. A few tips might get me to try.

    I just love purple (the key color for my wedding May 2007)! My husband is tasked at making me a birthday cake for this Friday (my b-day is tomorrow but some of my girlfriends are coming over to celebrate on Friday) and I only wish he had your talent, although I will love whatever he comes up with although I don’t think icing will be involved.
