Seashell project complete!

Seashell Cupcakes
Here is a picture of the seashell project we completed. All the edible designs (all 3oo of them) were made by hand. The flavor of the cu
pcakes were dark
chocolate with very vanilla meringue frosting. The box the cupcakes were in also had matching starfish, seahorses, and seashells on the outside. We believe the cupcakes fit perfectly with the baptism's decor and theme.
Na sas zisei h Savvina!

Plastic is not Fantastic!

Plastic is not Fantastic!

Some may wonder how plastic relates to a cupcake blog. Well this is the term I use when I refer to fondant. Fondant has been extremely popular in the past few years, and has been used to cover cakes, make rolled figurines, and pretty much destroy the taste, texture and freshness of a cake. In addition, not only are you eating something that tastes like the sole of your flip flop, you are also paying some serious cash for it. Although it was a trend that I never bought into, I'm elated that others are finally starting to realize that plastic is not fantastic!

Seashells, Shimmer and Sunshine!

Seashells, Shimmer, and Sunshine!

If that's not a tongue twister I don't know what is! This will be the theme of a 300 cupcake order we received for a baptism. The cupcakes will be a collaboration between Sonia (the new co-owner of Simply Rita, Athens) and myself. We envision crumbled graham crackers sprinkled on each cupcake to represent the sand, topped by edible bronze shimmered seashells and starfish. The theme colors will be coral and turquoise. We believe these cupcakes will look beautiful and fit perfectly with the party theme. Here are some of the edible designs we made. We are anxious to see the end result. More pictures will be posted when the cupcakes are complete!

Butterfly Kisses!

This was our latest creation. It was inspired by my daugher's butterfly themed birthday party. The pyramid can be custom made to accomodate any party theme. Pyramids are available in both Simply Rita locations.

(Connecticut location will be opening in September).
