Pretty Little Things

Bake it Pretty is more than pretty, it’s b-e-a-u-tiful!

Housemartin featured these darling little rays of sunshine back in June and I have been waiting to feature them ever since.

Each cupcake liner has its own personality.  They are so unique and fun!

Is anyone else like me?  Whenever I buy cupcake liners that I love, I never want to use them! I would rather admire them from afar.

This looks like double trouble to me! Cheryl Porro of the previous Cupcake Bakeshop was also the organizer of the cupcake meet-up group that I used to belong to in San Francisco.  Her cupcakes are not only absolutely delicious but so beautiful.

For the full recipe of how to make these sugary treats, click here.

Thanks, Cheryl!

DIY Carnival Fun!

I know dessert and candy buffets are all the rage lately so why not customize those desserts to fit your wedding theme!

These Carnival Theme Cupcakes are just too adorable!

All it takes is visiting your local craft store and visiting the scrapbook aisle!

Many of you are familiar with decorative cutouts that can be purchased to customized scrapbooks. With the wide range of styles and themes that can be found, it will make it easy for you find exactly what you want.  Simply attach the decorative cutout to a straw, wire or even lollipop stick and place it in the top of the cupcake!

Take a look how cute these cupcakes look with just a little bit of something extra.

Wedding Inspirations ’09- Big Hit!

I had the most delightful time at the Wedding Inspirations Event at the Commandant’s House this past Sunday.  The sun was shining, brides were out and the champagne was flowing. You may want to grab a cup of coffee because this is going to be a long one.

The Commandant’s House is such a beautiful venue for a wedding reception, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower.  It is located in Charlestown by the Navy Ship Yard. Take a look at these beautiful photos of the Commandant’s House!

There were so many great individuals from the Wedding Industry in attendance, let’s start with Abby Larson from Style Me Pretty!

As many of may know, I am a complete fan of Style Me Pretty.  It was my very first blog that I became addicted to and one of the first blogs I suggest that my brides follow for cutting edge wedding inspiration. Abby was such a sweet heart!  {Thank you for putting up with all of my photos!}

I recently posted the Wedding Inspirations ’09 Invitation.  It was so decadent and feminine.  Karen Bartolomei, owner of Grapevine, was responsible for creating this piece of art.  I spent so much time going through her work.  Take a look for yourself.

Bangerang!

I love the month of February, always have.  This month consists of my fiance’s birthday, valentine’s day and my birthday.  By the time all of the celebrating is done, it is practically March which means it’s one step closer to spring!

This year my mom sent us the coolest gift…Bangerang Bake Shop Cupcakes! http://www.bangerangbakeshop.com/ They were beautifully presented in mini mason jars (which I will use as an upcoming DIY project for the wedding.)  My favorite cupcake was the Chocolate Competition Cupcake.  It was absolutely wonderful! The cake was moist and the chocolate filling was more of a mousse then icing.

Many of you that know me know that I am a cupcake fanatic.  I follow “Cupcakes Take The Cake” Blog http://cupcakestakethecake.blogspot.com/ and was part of the San Francisco Cupcake Club.  Now that I live in Boston, I often think of starting up a Boston Cupcake Club.  Anyone interested?

Although I am over the cupcake wedding cake trend (totally overrated and too commercialized these days) I think this would be a great gift for a fun bridal shower, baby shower, a favor for your guests or arranged on a dessert buffet.

Here are some shots that I took of these luscious little treats.
