Cupcake Warriors

Word has begun to spread that I enjoy all things cupcakes.  A woman at work who is a friend of a friend asked me to make her son’s rehearsal dinner cupcakes.  She had two requirements: (1) a bride and groom, (2) bridesmaids and groomsmen whatever I thought would look nice.  We decided to go with the bridal party flowers: hydrangeas and white roses. I’ll save the verbal drama and share the goods:

My friend Sarah came up to help me – I couldn’t have done it all without her, especially with my outrageous OCD.  Here she is hard at work on the tuxedo.

After all of our hard work Friday night, you’d think I would have fulfilled my baking needs for the weekend.  But then it was Father’s Day Sunday morning and I woke up, went for a run, and realized I had a pint of strawberries that were slightly beyond their ripest. They were just begging for a cupcake.  So fluffy strawberry shortcake cupcakes it was!

Suffice it to say, there will be no cupcakes baked this weekend, only those that are to be consumed.

      Thanks Kelly! I am scared enough driving them to locations let alone, shipping them! I think they would need super packaging, but if I ever figure it out I’ll let you know! 🙂

    Aah! Those bride & groom cupcakes are TOO CUTE! And the rest are lovely, too.

    Oooh, these all look good. I especially like the purple and chocolate ones. And the strawberry ones. And, yeah, all of them. Very pretty and I’m sure they are tasty too.
