Labels


Look at my cute label!!! aHHHHHH! It's so pretty!  I ordered some labels for my baking and they just came in! I'm so excited and very happy with them! They are cuter than I imagined they would be and I think it adds a nice touch when delivering my baked goods.

I ordered this sticker label pictured here and 2 other designs from the company, My Own Labels, click here  for information.

Mini cupcakes for the bride to be

I made these mini vanilla cupcakes for my sister in law (to be)!!  We had afternoon tea at The Old Mill here in Toronto and I think these little cakes were definilty a hit with the ladies and added to the theme of the day  :)

Most of the flowers were piped with royal icing

I also made some gum paste flowers and butterflies

I slightly tinted the vanilla buttercream a pale green and used a Wilton 1M tip for the icing swirl
