Cupcake Quartet

These cupcakes were made for one of my co-workers for a 40th Birthday party.  7 dozen cupcakes.  It was a factory in my kitchen for the last few days.  I actually made close to 11 dozen cupcakes that are needed for family and friend get togethers this weekend. The daisies and lettering are fondant cutouts.

1. Vanilla cupcake with coconut & lime icing
2. Chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing
3. Oreo cookie cupcake with Oreo cookie crumb icing
4. Carrot cupcake with cream cheese icing

Canada Day Cupcake

Happy Canada Day!

To celebrate Diversity month at work I made these cupcakes. The office is a great test kitchen. These were well received.

I picked up the cupcake stand at Homesense.  I had to stop myself from buying one in every colour.  The maple leaf confetti is from the Bulk Barn.  I used the maple leaf cutter from the Pampered Chef set for the fondant leaf.  The Reynolds StayBrite Baking Cups I bought in the US.  I wish I had bought more.  I love them.   Cake: Versatile Vanilla Cake - recipe makes 30 cupcakes Icing: Wilton Buttercream - substituted 1/2 jar of Fluff for the shortening and used table cream instead of milk.
