Hi Sweet Readers!
I hope that you have been having a fantastic week! I want to thank you for checking in and for all the wonderful comments you have made about my cupcakes this week. I appreciate it so much and love hearing from you. So keep writing in :)
These are some cupcakes I made for an order for a little boy's 6th birthday (Happy birthday, Benjamin!). He is having his party at the Lego store and mom ordered these to go with the theme. I found some fun ideas via Flickr and then made a trip to the very same Lego store to purchase a Lego ice mold for the toppers. The tops are melted candy and some fun sprinkles I found at a newly discovered bake shop during my recent trip to Southern California.
The cake is take on a "butterfly" cake. I hadn't heard of it before, but I guess it is a popular type of cake in some regions. It is a vanilla/almond cake. It tastes delicious and has a wonderful slightly crunchy top. The frosting is the vanilla bean buttercream that I just love. I love seeing specks of vanilla seeds in anything, I think! :)
Thanks for checking in and have a sweet day!
