Volcano Birthday Cupcakes

   My daughter Adrianne was born  in Iceland 17 years ago today! Iceland has some active volcanoes, MT. Hekla last erupted February 26. 2000. That was exactly one month after Adrianne was born! I don't know if that has anything to do with her love of anything to do with rocks. But she is our resident Geologist. She also requested Pop Rocks on her cupcakes. So her father and I came up with Volcano cupcakes. The cupcakes are chocolate with a whipped chocolate buttercream frosting. Mini chocolate bundt cakes to make the volcanoes. Chocolate rocks and red and orange candy melt lava topped with Pop Rocks.

Christmas Party Cupcakes.

  For this party, Peppermint White Chocolate and Black Forest cupcakes with Advent calendar Ghiradelli chocolates as cupcake toppers, were delivered to help make a party with friends even more festive. It was fun to have a chance to  hang out with friends and make some new ones.

Red Velvet Birthday Cupcakes

  This was definitely a cupcake crazy weekend. I made Red Velvet cupcakes for a birthday and a media presentation my husband was working on for his marketing class. A fictitious cupcake bakery and cafe in Bangor Maine called Juli's Cupcake Cafe. Adrianne and Ernie spent the morning making fondant snowmen. It was an all hands on deck family fun activity from filming the presentation to acting as extras stealing cupcakes in the background.
