Kylee's 13th Birthday

Kylee turned 13 yesterday! I cannot believe she is a teenager! Yikes!
For all the kids birthdays this year, we gave them the option to have a party and presents or to just have a simple party and get their room's re-done...of course they chose for their rooms to get re-done. My point in this story in regards to my cake is the color scheme. Kylee chose her room to be hot pink with black and silver accents! It turned out great...as did the cake and the cupcakes!
I made one small little cake for the candles to go into...plus I always like the look of a small cake with a bunch of cupcakes! :)
I stacked them on black and silver trays in varying heights (used some pink crepe paper in one of my apothecary jars I made for the tall tier!)

My youngest helped me cut out the fondant accents!
They turned out pretty, elegant, girly and YUMMY! And of course that is what counts the most!
Happy Birthday Kylee!!

Cherry Pie Cupcakes

I did it! I tried a new creation last night and they are delicious!! :)
I LOVE cherry pie, so I wanted to try to incorporate that into a cupcake!
I started with a nice graham cracker crust, a yellow cake mix on top of that and then some cherry pie filling. Once baked up, the cherry filling sunk down to the bottom of the cupcake, but it was perfect there!! I topped them with a vanilla whipped frosting, and decorated some with the juice of the pie filling and graham cracker crumbs, and some with a cherry and graham cracker crumbs! I love how they turned out and my family loved eating them! :)

Tell me, which decoration do you think looks better?? With or without the cherry on top?
