Pretty Little Things

May 10, 2012

last week was a busy one. i made 40 cupcakes and 20+ wedding dress sugar cookies for a bridal shower that i found out about 7 days before the event. fortunately my calendar was pretty empty, so i was very happy to provide sweets for this family that bid on my cupcakes at a silent auction on sunday (the day before the order was made!)

i don’t know the bride very well, though she goes to the same church as me (which means not a lot since apparently there are HUNDREDS of people who go to the same church as me), but i did house sit for her family 7 years ago before chris and i got married, and she works at the starbucks by my house so i have run into her there a few times. how’s that for random degrees of seperation??

but her mom did e-mail me her pinterest page, and though i continue to not be on pinterest, but i think you can tell a lot about a person from looking at their pins! this bride to be is a lover of vintage and lace, so that’s the look we went for with her cupcakes and cookies.

both the cupcakes and cookies were taken from pinterest for the most part, so i have very little to do creativity-wise. though i did make these flower cupcakes for chris’ grandma’s 80th birthday last year.

again, please excuse my inability to take special looking pictures. i just got my mother’s day present (hint- it starts with an ‘i’ and ends with a ‘phone’) so i am looking forward to glamming up my pics the instagram way from here on out!!!

i don’t know if you can tell, but the cupcakes are covered with lace. found that at Hobby Lobby. love that place. the icing colors were beige, tan, and white. going for the vintage vibe:

found this cookie cutter at ‘Sur La Table’. love love love that store. you can’t really tell from this picture, but there is glitter/shimmer on the cookies. actually, i don’t know if anyone could tell that i did that, which begs the question- why did i bother, but alas, i tried to make these pretty. hopefully i succeeded:

i haven’t heard whether or not the treats tasted any good or not. as long as no one got food poisoning, i feel like i did my job.

    2) I could totally see the shimmer.

    4) Love you friend.
