I admit, I have fallen victim to the cupcake rage that's sweeping America.
I have purchased cupcakes from Caboodle Cupcakes (our local cupcake store here in Terre Haute). They were so very TASTY! I drool like Pavlov's dog every time I drive by their store. I have day dreams about their Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting. I yearn to have endless hours to enjoy their cute little store.
I LOVE cupcakes. I admit I can't get enough of Food Network's Cupcake Wars. I have purchased so many Cupcake Cookbooks including What's New, Cupcake? and even a "few" of those magazines you can buy at the checkout line at the grocery store that are entirely focused on Cupcakes. I am embarrassed to show you my cupcake book library. But it makes me happy.
So every party that I throw has to have cute cupcakes. I admit, I don't always succeed. (You remember the Bowling Pin cupcakes I made right? I keep trying to erase that memory.) But I try. It's so fun to make cupcakes to go along with the party theme.
So when I was thinking of my Princess Baby Shower, I had to do something as sweet and cute as our new little princess herself.
I started by buying the Princess Chocolate Candy Picks Mold.
I painted out the mold's indentations to be pink for our little princess and then cast the crowns in white chocolate.
When they were ready I pushed them into my 2 cupcake styles.
To dress the cupcakes up a little more, I added our Princess Crown Cupcake Wrappers.
Now, if only it were Carrot Cake it would be perfect!
