Some lovely, simple frosted dark chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream and turquoise vanilla buttercream for River's birthday... man I love taking pride in frosting a cupcake. Cake-nerdy but true... and I couldn't help but plunk that vintage ballerina into a turquoise rosette buttercream quicksand for a photo! I LOVE that vase, bought it last year from Dahlhaus, a local Vancouver gal who does amazing ceramic work! My mom bought me those flowers... ^__^
Thanks Sarah for the order... and happy birthday River!
