New Additions to the Pipedream Family

At Pipedream, we're always looking for new ways we can set ourselves apart from the others...I had a BLAST during this past weekend's baking extravaganza because I did just that. Everything I baked this weekend had a new, fun twist to it! It felt soo good to have so much baking success this weekend - kind of like that feeling you got the first time you put on a pair of skinny jeans and realized that they really are fabulous!

So, it started with an order...baby shower! I made cupcakes for a friend's wife - she's expecting twin boys so ofcourse the theme started with blue...now, the little bit of "new" i added to these...little chocolate toppers! I made the chocolate, and used it to top off my newly perfected vanilla cupcakes! Here's a peek at the little chocolate bottles, booties, rattles..and ofcourse the finished product:

So, who doesn't love strawberries???? EXACTLY what I thought when I was making vanilla buttercream frosting this weekend...So I figured...let me throw some strawberries in here! Well..the result was a fresh, summer burst of flavour ontop of a vanilla cupcake...With the help of my creative genius of a sister (follow her @laclosette_Liza)...we came up with the perfect name for this new addition to Pipedream......"Berry Beautiful" is her name...

The last thing I tried this weekend..phew was I tired! I have always been a firm believer in the saying "great things come in small packages..." (for those who know me personally, know that I'm pretty small!!)...I had the opportunity to make cupcakes in support of a cause that is very near and dear to my heart - The World Partnership Walk (google it - its an amazing cause)! I decided that they had to be mini...and had to represent the theme colours in some way (blue and orange)..here's the result..they were a big hit and I can't wait to make mini-cupcakes again!

I can't wait to hear what you all think of the new additions to our Pipedream Family!
