Cupcake Challenge!

When my super sweet and creative friend has a birthday boy in her life, I have to make something special! My friend Luna's son turned 2 and got baptized all in one day! It was a crazy fun day for everyone! You can check out her amazing florists skills here.

I enlisted the help of my friend, Alicia. She was a rookie, but caught right on and saved me from some serious cupcake drama! We decorated about 120 cupcakes in 2.5 hours! It was Cupcake War boot-camp!

We got crazy with some chocolate whipped buttercream, regular buttercream, and some white chocolate cream cheese decadence...and of course, some Sauvignon Blanc! It was a hot summer desert day!

This kid knows how to party! I think he had a cupcake in his hand every time I saw him!

The final look, inspired by Luna's design. We even used some shredded coconut to mimic the sweet white feathered angel wings that she incorporated into the centerpieces!

Check out the adorable decorations on the cake table!
(Nope, I didn't make the cake! Just the cupcake accessories!)

Happy birthday and blessed baptism to Sky! Kisses!

Cheers to some Cupcake War style decorating, sharing some sugar skills with a rookie who caught right on, and real good times with real good friends!
