Fannie-Cakes Friday: Hobbit Cupcakes

For some reason, with St. Patrick’s Day on Monday I felt these were the perfect project to feature today.  I was asked to make Hobbit cupcakes for a dear little friend’s birthday last fall.  His one request was for a banana cupcake, and I thought a honey cinnamon frosting would go perfect with that for his morning birthday party.  I baked them in dark green wrappers and topped them with little royal icing leaves.  They were a hit, and so delicious!  I’m sure Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin would approve 🙂

Fannie-Cakes Friday: Butterfly Cupcakes

Spring is definitely in the air here in Phoenix, which made me think of these super cute butterfly cupcakes I was asked to make for a little cutie’s birthday last year.  These were vanilla cake with purple and yellow vanilla buttercream frosting, topped off with sweet little butterfly sprinkles.  And, ABC had the most adorable polka dot liners.  I’m pretty sure these all got eaten before they flew away 🙂

Fannie-Cakes Friday: Nerdy Cupcakes

I had the pleasure of coming up with nerdy cupcakes for a friend who was throwing a nerdy birthday party for her boyfriend.  This was such a fun project!  The birthday boy wanted carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and I found some great nerdy toppers at ABC Cake Decorating Supplies.  They have such a great selection!  My friend and the birthday boy were thrilled, which always makes me so glad!
