I have been back in the kitchen creating adorable cupcakes that are both easy and fun to create. This time…puppy dogs!
This one is particularly special to me. My daughter’s adorable dog often has one ear up and one down, so I made this one in her likeness.
Create your own assorted puppy cupcakes for all of the dog lovers in your household.
I created these cupcakes by first frosting with a generous amount of frosting and tapping the frosting gently with the knife to bring it up to little “furry” points. Next, using a large decorating tip ( I used Wilton tip #22) to apply a nice frosting snout for each dog. Then comes the fun! Even kids can help with this. I used caramels warmed in my hands and pulled into the shape I wanted for the ears. Noses were M & M’s and for tongues I used bubble gum tape and red Air Heads candies. You can get creative with the eyes, also. I used brown M & M’s and attached candy eyes for some of my cupcakes and for the others I used mini-marshmallows cut in half and also topped those with candy eyes. Get creative and have fun!
Browsing on the internet today I discovered these adorable “cupcake collars.” I had never seen these before and think they could be so cute to bump up the themeing of your party. Check out all the designs they offer at CupcakeCollars.com!

I was organizing my photos and realized I had only featured a few of the pictures from the Alice in Wonderland baby shower I held this past fall. Today I am not editorializing, I am just sharing more pictures from my party. Enjoy!
…And they’re off…the beginning of what is called “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.” Of course, if you want to throw a party, you certainly want it to last a little longer than two minutes.
I found these lovely vintage horse-related postage featured on the Oh So Beautiful Paper website.

When searching for ideas for an Under the Sea Party, I came across these beautiful starfish and seahorse cookies created by Maddie Ziff. I found them on her blog at I Like to Bake. I love how she displayed them on graham cracker crumbs to simulate sand.
These are adorable sea creatures I think I could recreate out of balloons for great decorations. I found these at balloonbuzz.com.
