Cupcakes for a Work Party

My mom asked me to make some cupcakes for her work party. Since it is Halloween time, I decided to make some worms in dirt cupcakes and some candy corn cupcakes!
The "dirt" cupcakes were a chocolate cupcake with a whipped marshmellow cream filling, chocolate frosting, covered in crushed up chocolate graham crackers, with a gummy worm on top!The candy corn cupcakes were made of yellow cake - the bottom half yellow, the top half orange with a vanilla whipped frosting and topped with a little candy corn! Hope they enjoy them!

My First Wedding!

My brother, Travis, got married this past weekend! I was thrilled and nervous that they wanted me to do their wedding cake! it was my first wedding cake. Their theme was fall, decorations and colors, she thought pumpkins would be cute as the topper, she wanted the fondant brown, and instead of stacked she wanted them placed out separately, one carrot, one pumpkin spice and one vanilla. She sent me a few pictures of ones she had found as references and all had fall leaves on them. So here is what I came up with...I used stamps for the leaves, made the impression in the fondant, cut them out and then hend painted them once they dried. The pumpkins are also made out of fondant. This is the top tier, french vanilla cake with a raspberry cream filling.This is the middle tier that is a pumpkin spice cake with a whipped vanilla cream cheese filling.And this is the bottom tier, the one they cut and fed to each other. Carrot cake is my brother's favorite, so that is what this is with the same whipped vanila cream cheese filling as the middle!And here they are set up at the wedding reception! I had a blast making them and hopefully can do some more in the future!
