I haven't accepted any cake orders for a few months. So this was a fun one to do. The Mommy that ordered these for her little girl's birthday saw my flowers, and wanted those. But she mentioned that her daughter liked ladybugs, so I placed a few randomly on the cupcakes for her. I didn't have my grandson Noah this week, so I really enjoyed spending the day baking and decorating these cuppies. I even had a surprise visit, and they came with lunch no less, from Genny and Jake and my girls. Sorry, no pics of the visit. But it was a nice break and Hannah sampled my cupcakes and gave me her approval.
I am a bit rusty with the pastry bag!!
I did the ladybugs using red M & M's and piped black buttercream dots and face. My hands felt huge working with such a tiny piece. The cupcakes are french vanilla with buttercream icing.
This is how Ducey has spent the past couple weeks with this awful heat! If I am in my bedroom, so is he. If I am in the kitchen, he is sprawled out on the cool brick floor. He is tired of these "DOG DAYS" of summer!!! And so am I. Have a happy and SAFE Labor Day weekend everyone!
