CupcakeCamp Charleston

Boy, am I wiped out!

CupcakeCamp Charleston was a blast today. Met a lot of great local bakers, local artists, and the organizer for CupcakeCamp Phoenix!!!

What a tiring day, though. Setting up, transporting, re-setting up, and re-filling 300 cupcakes will really take its toll on you. I could not have done it without the organizational and directional skills of my good friend and baker's assistant, Ronii Bartles of Bartles & Associates. She made sure I had everything I needed and was all set up for the day's activities!

Pictures to come...

Beaches, Bars, and Bachelorettes

The lovely Jenny & Brett will be celebrating their nuptials come December, 2010, at long last! To celebrate this momentous occasion, the girls spent a fantastic weekend in Wilmington, NC, complete with champagne cake, appropriately adorned with champagne buttercream.

But, what bachelorette celebration is complete without a little risque fun? No party I know of! Click here and here to see what we can do. Not suitable for work! Click at your own risk.

Got a bug in your bonnet?

No, not a bee... A bug! A grasshopper, to be exact.

Exactly one year ago, I made this ladybug picnic cake / cake pop combo for the lovely Harper, who was turning 4. Well, little Harper really loves her bugs, because this year for her birthday, she requested a grasshopper cake! And, not only does she love bugs, but she has fantastic taste. Her request was not your standard chocolate cake with white frosting. Nope. She wanted a spice cake! I admire her sophistication at such a young age.

Busy, busy, busy!!!

We've been busy over here at Caketacular. I'm in Charleston this week for CupcakeCamp Charleston, which is sure to be a spectacular, caketacular time! 2 hours of unlimited cupcakes at a fancy hotel in gorgeous Charleston? Why not!?

We're also gearing up for the holiday season. Halloween is behind us - pictures of Halloween cake pops to come soon. Next, it's time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. Turkey cake pops, anyone? What about pilgrim hats?

Then, the wedding for my lovely friends Jenny & Brett in December. This is going to be a big one, folks.

Thank you for your continued support, and please contact us if there is anything we can do for you in this upcoming holiday season!
