About six months ago my mother, youngest sister, and I were planning a baby shower for my middle sister. Now, if you know anything about our family, you know that we like to try to think outside the box whenever we can. So, as we were planning this baby shower we were thinking about what we could do to make this party special for my sister who was expecting her first baby. In our family EVERYTHING is an occasion. We are always trying to make things special for people…anyway…we tried to do things that were a little out of the ordinary. We had a vintage theme. We always try to make food that is special to people. We had sentimental gifts that had the potential to bring tears, but we were still missing something…
The cake…or in this case, CUPCAKES!
Again, we wanted them to be something a little out of the ordinary, something that not many people would have at a celebration. And in that instant the cake monsters were created! We enlisted the help of some friends to teach us the art of making the wonderful thing called fondant. We spent many hours adding food colorings, shaping fondant, baking cupcakes, adding details, and our passion for baking cakes was born.
Needless to say, the cupcakes were a hit. Not only were they the something extra special that the we will always remember, but it helped to start two women on path of making many more cakes and cupcakes. Where this path will lead we don’t exactly know yet, but we hope that you will enjoy our journey along the way!
