Christening Cupcakes

God Bless Everly Grace...
Remeber Miss Everly? Well, she was baptised today in a gorgeous heirloom gown that her mother, uncle, and grandfather all wore. Everly's grandmother called me a few weeks ago and asked if I could make cupcakes for the occasion. Well, she left a voicemail at home, which Matt on purpose accidentally deleted. After some research, I found her number and was able to call her back. She asked for some pretty chocolate cupcakes as the cake she was ordering was vanilla; however, she gave me free reign as to how to decorate them. Seeing as Miss Everly is so pretty, I knew they had to be pink! I used a chocolate fudge cake recipe and Martha Stewart's Swiss Meringue Butter Cream. I topped them with pink chocolate crosses and light pink sugar pearls. So sweet and dainty...just like Everly. The cake, in my opinion, was just ok, but the frosting was delicious! If I didn't know how many sticks of butter went into one batch, I'd probably eat it out of a bowl with a spoon!

I found the mold for the chocolates in the stack of ones my mother gave to me a few years ago. 

Here they are displayed next to the beautiful cake at Everly's Grandmother's house...

They seemed to be a hit as there were very few left at the end of the afternoon...

  3. A hublot bingo bango beerfest watch. if hublot was calling the prices, this replica watches sale price tag would have one more zero. Love their movements but hate the rest as a general rule. And this one totally replica watches uk outside of the movement finishing. Thanks for a brutally honest review David. But I do find it strange that you would assess such an interesting replica watches so negatively. To be frank, it much better than anything you have ever produced. However, to call vertical clutch disengagement any hublot replica sale of a second the accuracy of the rolex watches store is balderdash sir. The world is full of other watches.

To quote a high class movie. I should be much more in love with but just am Not, and thisbis one of them. I love rolex watches store, especially bizarre ones. This one fits that bill. I love fine watchmaking. But there replica watches sale too many misses here for a proper love affair.
