sweet pic 54: gamin'

while i was out of retirement working on the Peter Rabbit veggies
i got snagged for another bday.
i did bday cupcakes in a Mario Brothers theme last year and this year's request was more general...
just 12 pieces needed, xbox? wii?
so with the help of a pintrest board christine created
(anyone remember the days before pintrest? :) )
we decided on controllers and a couple games.
(once again, i couldn't do the cupcakes)

i started with the wii controller
not perfect, there was a small time crunch
but i got most of the details in there 

then came the xbox equipment 

game cupcake toppers (i only know mario... i am a nintendo girl through and through :) )
and all together it made a video game fondant box! 

ps. i got a pic of them on the cupcakes... 

sweet pic 53: eat your veggies

technically i am retired from all the cupcake stuff.
that's what i say as i try and figure out what i want to do now.
but special people, i can't refuse them :)
so when crystal wanted to know if i could do something for her son's first birthday?
i unretired of course!
especially since it was a Peter Rabbit theme, i love veggies!
(i was out of town that weekend tho, so i just did the fondant pieces and she made the cupcakes)

there were carrots


sweet peas

and radishes too but they don't photograph well (a little know fact ;) )

plus some flower pots, a watering can, shovel hands, and fencing

i loved all the little pieces together ready to be dropped off

and i am looking forward to seeing her pics when they found their rightful place on top of cupcakes :)

sweet pic 51: oh boy!

it was anna's baby shower, celebrating their  baby boy due at the end of october.
huge sports fans, i knew i had to have sports represented. 
but i also wanted something baby cute.
so while all together they don't necessarily match, they are perfect for the soon to be three :)

the baby will be born loving these three teams, part of his dna ;)

bears are definitely baby cute...

i mean how cute is this bear?! 

(ok so the baby will be cuter, but until then, da bear!)

wanted to include the most essential teams and sports, so i am missed hockey and the knicks
(said i am saving those for the next one ;) )

couldn't help but include this picture. you can see how professional i am with my wine bottle background :D

so excited for anna and scott!!!

sweet pic 49: al-a-bama!

a roll tide fan was having a birthday. 
it was short notice, so i couldn't do much but i thought these would at least capture the spirit.
and it turns out she LOVED them which is all that matters to me :)

and now i have several new alabama fans that are fans of mine :)

sweet pic 48: london baby!

british flag hearts for 40th birthday cupcakes.
one of the more creative fondant orders i have had!
(never did get whether she was from there or just a fan of the country :) )
my favorite part is the glitter... lots and lots of it that the picture doesn't show!

ps. i know there is a tiny error on one, but they ordered 6 so i figured it was just a bonus.
