All of my Easter memories are good ones. But my favorite would have to be when i was a kid and waking up and running downstairs to get my easter basket. It was like a mini-Christmas, and with a kid's favorite thing-candy. Then my mom, brother, and I would all go out to my aunts and my whole family would be there and all of us kids would have Easter egg hunts in the backyard and try the hardest to get the plastic eggs with the $1 bills in them. :)

Thank you to everyone who wrote your favourite memories! I had such a great time reading them.

Check back to the blog often, we will have more giveaways coming up!!

Hey...We're Famous!

Okay...so not really :)

However, we were just featured on one of our favourites CakeSpy.com!

Thanks goes out to CakeSpy owner Jessie, who took on the hardship of having cupcakes delivered right to her door and suffering through the consumption.

Adventures in Swiss Buttercream

So I wanted to master Swiss Buttercream, and decided what better way to master it than with a Vanilla bean Buttercream using real Vanilla Beans from Madagascar!

Below was the absolutely delicious results! Enjoy!


Beach Wedding!

Hey Everyone!

Well Cupcake Carousel was on a short hiatus, as we visited Marco Island Florida, just outside of Naples. Not only were we able to enjoy a little sun and relaxation, we were also able to witness my Mom and Step Dad say "I do" in a wonderful beach wedding.

So naturally I offered to bake the wedding cake and cupcakes. My brilliant idea popped into my head while visiting one of my favourite baking stores in Wisconsin called Vanilla Bean. While aimlessly walking down one of their aisles some gold sparkling sanding sugar caught my eye. I picked it up studying it thoughtfully when it hit me...Beach Cupcakes!! I quickly called my Mom and explained my idea, which she loved and thus, Beach Cupcakes were born!

We had our standard chocolate and Lemon cupcakes, then I used Buttercream icing in ivory to use as the background for the sand, applied the gold sanding sugar, then used bright blue Buttercream to pipe the waves on the beach. Lastly I added a starfish and clam shell to the "beach" made from rolled fondant.

Not only were the cupcakes delicious, (I think I ate 4!) but they looked great! Everyone loved how they tied in with the theme of the wedding.
