Ar! Ar! Dolphin Cupcakes




I don't realllly know what noises dolphins make. "ar? ar?" Er, I don't think that's right... Maybe I'm thinking of a seal clapping his funny little flippers together wearing a rainbow collar with a silver sardine between his teeth! For lucky Helena's birthday, the party was at a wave pool, so the request was for ocean/watery theme with dolphins, Helena's fave. The cupcakes are lovely Raspberry Rose, raspberry jam filled vanilla cake! I adore the colour combination of orange and blue; I thought it complimented those cute lil grey dolphins nicely, and it's always refreshing to do an order for a girl's birthday that isn't screaming pink, pink pink!! Personally my fave colours are blue and green! I teach kids art and little boys are always going "EWWW pink" or little girls are saying "EWWW" blue! Then I tell them what my fave colours are and they have a quizzical look, and then I tell 'em "colours have no gender!" They usually laugh at me!!

Is there any animal you can't make adoringly cute on top of a cupcake!?
My favourite colours are green and blue too, but can't help but love a large dose of pink as well!

Hi, I'm no where near Vancouver so there's no way I could order but these dolphins are absolutely gorgeous! Did you use a cookie cutter for the dolphins or some sort of stencil? Thanks
