Dr. Seuss Baby Shower Cupcakes

I have a confession to make: I actually made these cupcakes last summer. Why, you ask, am I only showing them to you now? This set of photos has been one of the most daunting folders on my desktop, for ages…I haven’t known where to start! However, with one midterm under my belt as of today, I am happy to announce that my schedule just freed up a little bit, and I was able to check this post off of my To-Do list once and for all!

I was approached last summer with a request for some gluten free cupcakes for a Dr. Seuss themed baby shower. More specifically, the theme was specific to the One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish book, with an adorable New Fish baby shower twist!

The best part about making these cupcakes, was the painting step! They literally came to life before my eyes, much like the pages of a well-loved Dr. Seuss book! The only downside of this order was duplicating 3 dozen of them!Dr. Seuss Baby Shower CupcakesDr. Seuss Baby Shower Cupcakes

Rubber Ducky Sugar Cookies

Last weekend I got to do some baking for a baby shower! For this task, I was very excited to be provided with an adorable duck-shaped cookie cutter. The little ducklings started out all yellow, but this seemed too boring so I added a few blue bubbles on the bottom of each one 🙂

I also got to make some chocolate cupcakes for this order, which I decorated with a swirl of yellow icing using a 2D tip, white nonpareils and sugar pearls. They were easy to make, and I am really happy with the way the turned out.DSCN6153-horz
