Neopolitan Cupcakes

I love getting to surprise people, and so when K told me she liked the basics (vanilla, chocolate & strawberry), I came up with this perfect combination of the three for her birthday party.

Just like the traditional neopolitan ice cream, these cupcakes are layered with chocolate vanilla and strawberry cake and topped with little bursts of frosting in the same flavors.

Simple, classic and delicious.

($2.25/cupcake; minimum order one dozen)

More first birthday party!

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails - that's what little boys are made of.

But this cake and accompanying cupcakes are made of vanilla and chocolate and sugar, oh my!

6" smash cake in vanilla with buttercream, surrounded by vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, covered with smooth chocolate and vanilla frostings and ganaches.

The smash cake is baby blue fondant with red and white argyle and a white fondant dog bone.

Some cupcakes are topped with ganache and a royal icing bone shape. The others have a swirl of chocolate or baby blue vanilla frosting a chocolate sprinkles.

The verdict? Delicious.

(Smash cake as shown: $20.00)
(Cupcakes: $1.75/cupcake; minimum order one dozen)
(Baby: not for sale)

Dog Bones iced cookies. The perfect treat.
($1.75/cookie; minimum order one dozen)
