These Betty Boop cupcakes were the talk of the town. Gives that Sex in the City feel. Hip and soo girly.
A young lady ordered these for her co-worker’s birthday.
She loved them and Betty Boop!
The cupcake toppers were made from royal icing. A very simple recipe.
2 egg whites, 3 cups confectioners sugar and 2 or 3 tablespoons of water (depending on the desired consistency).
When piping, the icing will be more thick and when filling in the icing can be a bit thinner.
Whatever your design is, build/ outline three times for sturdy piece and then fill.
Caution, egg whites are raw so this is not recommended for children or elderly consumption.
*Note: Substitute egg white for two to three tablespoons of Meringue powder
Any man’s dream cake… where he can imagine owning several different luxury cars. What a special gift!
I used my super moist vanilla cake recipe. And topped it off with a very vanilla buttercream.
This is a 9’inch the layer cake.

2014 Graduation Cake. Royal blue, white and gold.
I made this 12′ inch three layer vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, for a young lady’s graduation in Riverview, Fl. The grad cap is made out of styrofoam and covered in fondant.
What I enjoyed about making this cake was having free range to design and create the final product.
When using styrofoam please be careful not to use the green styrofoam that you would find in Wal-Mart because it tends to shed and you do not want plastic shavings anywhere near the cake. The white styrofoam is much more durable, no shedding and easier to handle. It is possible to use the green if the store is out of the white one however, you will have to unwrap it, brush off the excess dust (actually use a damp cloth and wipe off the excess dust) and cover it completely with fondant.
I made this cake with a very moist vanilla recipe which includes vanilla pudding. Along with a classic buttercream frosting recipe.
