Jewelry & Angel Birthday Cupcakes for Tea Time!

Hello Friends!

What a wonderful week it has been
and I hope everyone is doing great!

This past weekend I had the first delivery
to the winners of the CUPCAKE CLUB for
Humor to Fight the Tumor ~ Brain Tumor Gala.

For an inspiring refresher click HERE.
It was wonderful getting to know 
Matt and Kristen, they are an amazing couple. 

To get to know Matt's story click HERE.
These first cupcakes were very special 
 so I wanted to share them with you this week.

Matt requested that his first delivery
be for his wife's birthday party this weekend!!

I asked Matt to tell me a little bit about his wife
so I could incorporate some touches that
would reflect his wife's life and interests.
This is what he lovingly told me...

She loves to make jewelry.

They will be celebrating her birthday with friends.

She is an angel.

I poured my heart into these cupcakes.

I truly understand the phrase......made with love.

I made these with a lot of love.

The lighting and my patience with photography lately has been LOW ~ sorry!

I just can not tell you how good it felt 
making this delivery.  It is ironic that about 
this time last year I began to come out of my darkness
and frustration with my illness through baking therapy.

I have come a long way.

I hope I have a long way to go.

This week, I raise a STACK of teacups to all my 
blogging friends and all the great blogs that inspire me.
You know who you are!

YOU are all GEMS!!

A lovely sugar necklace just for you!

And matching earrings perhaps?

I truly believe that if it wasn't for 
this blog and the "responsibility" 
I feel to create new things, I would not be in the 
same place of peace as I am right at this moment. 
Thank you from my heart.

I am excited to see what you are sharing for TEA this week!

These are too precious for words, Trish. I am sure they loved these cupcakes. Please know how much inspiration you give to us, your happy followers! ((hugs)) xo

Melissa said...

Oh my gosh, those are absolutely beautiful! It's hard to believe you haven't been doing this forever!

Paula said...

Matt's philosophy that the only disability is a bad attitude is an excellent one for all of us to adopt. It is abundantly clear that your cupcakes for his wife Kristen were made with much love and care and I'm sure they were deeply moved by all the special touches you added to them. They are reflective of the woman who created them...simply beautiful.

THese are beyond beautiful and I'd say you are an angel for making them. i love making food jewelry myself and these just brightened my day.

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Wow! These are amazing! You definitely have a talent for decorating cupcakes. I have no talent at all, just open a can of frosting and smear it on. lol! That's why I have to do things like a night on our pretend Mayflower. It makes up for my lack of talent in other areas. :)
