80’s Themed Cupcake Toppers

I had a fun custom order request from a previous work acquaintance for some birthday cupcakes and cupcake toppers. I made these 80’s themed toppers for another client before and she requested the same ones, which include Pacman, cassette tapes, Rubik’s Cube, and I ❤ 80’s. The toppers added some fun to the cupcakes! Check them out:

Pacman Toppers. Fact: The Pacman arcade game first released in Japan in 1980.

Rubik’s Cube Toppers. Fact: Originally called the Magic Cube, these were sold by Ideal Toy Corp in 1980.

Cassette Tape Toppers. Fact: One of the most common formats for prerecorded music from the early 1970’s to 1990’s.

I ❤ 80’s Toppers

The birthday girl was Mylinh, so there were ‘M is for My’ and ‘We ❤ My’ Toppers.

Birthday Cupcakes- First Official Order!

24 Jul

July 24th, 2011

This weekend I had my first official order of cupcakes! My friend’s friend ordered birthday cupcakes for his aunt and chose three flavors- red velvet, green velvet, and lemon. I was a little nervous because I wanted to put my best foot forward and make the cupcakes as perfect as possible…after all, I didn’t want to disappoint my first customer.

Thanks Anthony, for the referral!

R+K’s Baby Shower

My friends Rey and Kate had their baby shower this past weekend and I was super excited when they asked me to make cupcakes for their event. I found cute little onsies and baby bottle cutters and decided to use them as the theme.  They are expecting a girl, so I went with a girl color scheme for the fondant toppers and made red velvet, chocolate, and peppermint chocolate cupcakes.

It’s A Girl!

Rey is also a big fan of Spiderman, so as an extra, I made Spiderman cake pops with a lemon flavored cake. I was worried that the pops didn’t look like Spiderman, but most people were able to recognize and relate them to the actual character. What do you think?
