80’s Cupcakes – Rubix Cubes and Gold Stars

25 Jan

We were asked to create 80’s cupcakes for an event this past week.  I went to the drawing board and wanted something different.  SO many people do the ghetto blasters, pac man, MTV logos, etc… what could I do that would be different?  And then it hit us!  Rubix Cube Cupcakes (Chocolate Cupcake w/Chambord Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting) and Gold Stars Cupcakes (Chocolate Cupcake w/Almond Cream Cheese Frosting).  And to top it off, I decided not to do fondant rubix cubes, but to actually put real miniature ones on top so they could play with them!

I have to say, I think they look fabulous and I got a little taster in from some mini’s I made on the side and boy were they yummy!

Cupcake Camp Hollywood / Los Angeles

11 Jan

Hello Cupcaketeers!

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I have posted.  Shame on me!  There has been so much going on after the 1st Cupcake Camp that I have been running around like a crazy person!  But here is to staying up to date in the wonderful year of 2011!

As for Cupcake Camp Hollywood, what an amazing time we had.  We had our usual suspects with us to help (thank you Stephanie Starbuck, Jamie Lee, Doug Starbuck, Kayla Starbuck, and A.N.T.)!  And you have to give it to the guys for cooperating to wear my signature pink shoes!

The day started off in a frantic, rain was in the forecast and we were arriving a bit late for set up, but upon arrival, we loaded in and set up just in time before the doors opened.  And oh boy, when the doors opened it was a crowdfest headed our way!  What excitement!!!  🙂

Our flavors on board with us, we decided upon a “Hot Chocolate” theme so we did all cakes “Hot Chocolate” and then went for different toppings which included Salted Caramel, Peppermint, Marshmallow, and Stephanie’s signature Chambord!

Upon entering, the people were given beads to give to the baker of their choice.  After the 1st tasting, we didn’t place, but the 2nd round we took 2nd place and received an amazing Scharffen Berger gift basket.  Not to mention, they sent us a huge box full of chocolate goodies to help bake our cupcakes prior to the event!  (THANK YOU!!!)

We met some amazing bakers out there including the owner and mastermind of Cake Pops and a young first timer Jackie Brubaker who had delicious alcohol based treats!

Thank you to everyone who came out and a huge thank you to Babette from www.bakespace.com who organized it all!  We can’t wait for next year!

Here are some photos from fans and our own that we thought we would share!  Cheers!
