Oreo Cheesecake Cupcake aka The Seano

This is The Seano! It's an Oreo Cheesecake Cupcake. I put an Oreo in the bottom of the cup for a crust. The cupcake is a cheesecake with bits of Oreo in it. I topped it off with my homemade very vanilla whip cream and an Oreo garnish. Now I wasn't thrilled about this at first since it's really not "cakey" but it is delicious and I'm pretty sure with be a hit. I really do have Sean to thank for this one- he told me exactly what he wanted. Sean is amazing. He supports, encourages, and pushes me to better Mmmm K Cupcakes. He is one of the few people who will put me in my place and love me at the same time. He is absolutely my favorite person in the world. I hope everyone loves The Seano as much as I love him- love you Seano!!

Stawberry aka The McNab

Here is my strawberry cupcake with cream cheese frosting. I use fresh strawberries in my batter to give it a really strong flavor- and really what cupcake can be bad with cream cheese frosting! It's pretty basic but still very yummy.  I've named this "The McNab" after one of my best friends, Whitney McNab. Whitney is fabulous. She is full of life and has a huge heart. We haven't lived in the same city in 3 years yet we are closer than we were in college. She is the perfect person to go out with and have a fun night out or to sit at home with and snuggle. She's also a fiery redhead so this cupcake just made sense for her! I hope everyone enjoys a classic- The McNab!

Key Lime aka The Mer!!

My sister, Meridith, is 6 1/2 years older than me. We are completely different but we really do get along great. She taught me how to drive, shares my love for food, and is supportive in all my life decisions- even if she doesn't agree with them. She pretty much rocks so I wanted to make her cupcake really delicious. Mer wanted her cupcake to be a Key Lime cupcake. I must say that I wasn't thrilled with this because I am such a chocolate lover and I would be 100% okay with having every cupcake chocolate. I guess if I really do want to be successful though I need to please the masses. It's a key lime cupcake with a graham cracker crust. (a nice surprise when you bite into it!) Then it's topped with a lime buttercream frosting and a graham cracker garnish. I hope everyone enjoys "The Mer"!! Love you Mer!

My Big Gig

Recently I made cupcakes for EKS&H. (local accounting firm)  I made 13 dozen variety cupcakes. It was a ton of work but so rewarding. Since then I've had multiple people ask for my menu and pricing so that is promising! Here are a few pictures of the prep and finished products. I will post pictures of each flavor soon. Enjoy!
