1. The Giant Cupcake pan takes forever to bake and the cake comes out pretty dense.
2. Covering the bottom in Candy clay instead of Fondant (I hate Fondant) was perfect.
3. Simple often turns out cuter than elaborate.
4. Ms. little lady is much better at cake demolition than her older brother was on his 1st birthday!
5. It doesn't matter how much sleep I lose trying to make their cakes perfect, I love my Nousins!
Stay tuned, Big brother is turning 3 in January and I'm determined to make the coolest cake/cupcakes ever!

On to the cake! Ms. C is in love with rich desserts, and would eat PB Cup Cupcakes if I made them every day (i Think). So in the excitement of Mr. P's request for Ms. C's hand in marriage a Peanutbutter Chocolate cake was in order. Chocolate cake filled with Peanutbutter Fudge and covered in Rich Chocolate Ganache. After the engagement we (the Meeker Gals) arrived at the door with cake in hand, singing, "Going to the Chapel." It was so fun! Can't wait till the Bridal Showers, oh the cupcakes we will have!

"Checked out that cupcake place you sent me to. I love that you sent me on a “mission.”
Anyway, it was small and cute and a little oriental woman took Matt and my order. We asked her which ones were the best and she said the red velvet is a favorite and then some others. I got a red velvet and Matt got something like a chocolate peanut butter cup thing. They were both very good! Moist and very tasteful. I’d go back.
4 out of 5 stars. (5 if it had been your store)
So there you go, Good Cupcakes in Pasadena, spread the word. And thanks Sarah for the review!

Also on the menu today: Strawberry Margarita, it's got real Margarita in the cake and the frosting and of course rimmed in pink sugar. These were for a Bridal shower, I'm sure they had one great fiesta!

1. This was my first attempt! I've been too scared to make them, but I had nowhere I had to be and pumpkin and eggs that needed to be used.
2. I love them so much, that I was once given one for Christmas.
A traditional Pumpkin Roll is laid out on powdered sugar right after it's baked so it doesn't stick to your towel when you roll it, but I wanted to try something with a little texture so I baked up some pecan streusel topping to replace the sugar. It turned out pretty good for my first attempt. I only had 4oz of cream cheese and 1 stick of butter so to make enough filling I also added about 1/2 cup of whipped cream. It gave the filling a light airy taste. I wish I would've taken a picture of it sliced, it looked so pretty! I think it went over pretty well with the church folk. Now that I've figure out how to roll cake, watch out My head is spinnin' with ideas!

My good friend has the cutest little girl and let me do her 1st year birthday which had a pink poodle theme, how cool is that! They had her party at a park on the windiest day ever, but the cupcakes survived. They are pink strawberry with very vanilla frosting. Some have dots and some have poodles. I think they turned out pretty cute!
