Baby Shower Cupcakes & Karsyn's 3rd Birthday

A friend of mine from work, Shelley, was co-hosting a baby shower and birthday party for a friend of hers. She asked if I would make some cupcakes for the shower and something special for the little girls 3rd birthday.

For the shower I made 48 cupcakes, using vanilla, chocolate, oreo, red velvet, chocolate & peanut butter, and snickerdoodle as the flavors. I used chocolate, vanilla (which I made baby blue), cream cheese, peanut butter and seven minute frosting for all the icing! On top of the cupcakes I made airplanes out of a chocolate mold in all the primary colors of the babies nursery. I think they turned out super cute. Here are a few photos I snapped for delivering.

Here are some of the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes!

A shot of the box, all chocolate and vanilla with a few red velvet!

And the favorite from what I hear, chocolate & peanut butter cupcakes!

Here are a few pictures they sent me afterwards on the set up! I think their presentation was adorable!
A little closer up on the cupcake plate!

For the little girls birthday, she wanted to do so strawberry cake pops. So how could I go with anything other than pink! I picked up a square 6 inch vase from Michaels and we order M&M's with the little girls names on them in both the light and dark pink. I filled that vase up a little more than half way with the M&M's and they stuck the cake pops in! This was the only picture I got before I left, but I thought it showed all the cute sprinkles!
Below are a few more shots she sent me after the party! How cute is this presentation! I love it!One with the cute birthday day girl, Karsyn!

Recipes of the cupcakes soon to come!!! Just thought I would share a few pics :)

  1. HI! I'm the mom of Karsyn (and the little boy on the way), and I have to tell you, those were some of the best cupcakes!! (and you are right - the peanut butter ones were my favorite!) And the cake pops were just the cutest thing I have ever seen! You did a great job...thank you!

  2. Ok, my new fave is the cookies 'n cream cupcakes. The icing--wow! Thanks for all your hard work, Smitten!! I appreciate it!

  3. You are turning into quite the little baker! I'm very impressed. The cupcakes are super cute and I love the airplanes on top. Did you use candy melts for those?

    Great job on making the birthday girl feel special. The m&m's are a great touch.

    Love it all and look forward to the recipes!

  4. The cupcakes look beautiful. I love the little airplanes! Chocolate & Peanut Butter would totally be my favorite.

  5. These cupcakes look so cute! You did a great job with them! :)

  6. Wow - that's a lot of baking to make all those flavors. You worked hard! I love the cake pops too. Putting them in the vase of m&ms was a great presentation.

  7. I love the cupcake cake design.. I love the concept of the cake.. Kids really love cupcakes on their birthdays, as well as moms do.

  8. Fantastic job Smitten! I don't offer to bake anything for anyone I'm much too scared that something will go wrong.

    Were you able to try one of each of the cupcakes? I'm anxious to hear what you thought about the snickerdoodle ones. I've made those and have a post to go up about 'em tomorrow night.

    btw, sorry I've been mia! One word KIDS!
