Special Delivery ~ Baby Cupcakes for a Special Family.

Have you ever known someone who was destined to be a mother?

That person is my cousin, Jana.



I had the recent privilege of being asked to make cupcakes for her daughter, Lauren's, Baptism party.


I was honored to be asked to provide the sweets for this sweetie.



Jana requested a whimsical theme, not religious, and along the way she had made a comment that she liked the idea of having a "baby bath tub" incorporated into the designs.

Ask and you shall receive...especially if you are family. *wink wink*





I could not have had more fun with these designs.

How about a gaggle of babies taking a bathie....









I searched high and low to find a baby bathtub mini cutter and the awesome gals at mycakeschool.com referred me to a GREAT site for mini cutters but it was too late to order one so I "McGyverd" my own by bending a random cookie cutter I had into bathtub shape.

The heads were made by using the round part of the wilton 1M piping tip. Yet another trick learned being a member of mycakeschool.com. I did use a crusting buttercream for the white background and sprayed with my favorite thing, Pearl Luster Spray!  The rest is fondant.

The faces drawn with edible food writers and sprinkled with pixie dust. All of which you can get at the Sweet Boutique by clicking HERE.

I created a few other designs along with these and will be posting those in the upcoming weeks so stay tuned.

I just LOVE babies and the joy they evoke. I am so happy for Jana and Nick, but I am equally happy for baby Lauren knowing the love and support she will always have growing up in this wonderful family.

This is my life in baby cupcakes for a very special family.

Thanks to you and your mom for looking for family recipes and for your Nana's Kolaches. :-) I'm looking forward to them.

I noticed you started a new blog for your daughter. Very sweet, and a wonderful idea. :-)

Take care.
