Family Tree Cupcakes


My friends ask me to make the cutest things…

I made this cupcake tree for an Indiana Family Reunion a few weeks ago. I made two dozen chocolate cupcakes from scratch and created the tree shape.

I am much better with paper than frosting or fondant.

For the new year, I had the pleasure of styling and coordinating a Winter Wonderland party for little Giulia’s first birthday. Her parents had some wonderful ideas which included an artificial snow pit and a s’mores bar, and together, we decided that an evening filled with winter activities (indoors, of course) was the way to go. Being that we live in Chicago and we have been pummeled with snow this winter, that didn’t stop every guest, young and old, from enjoying the festively frosty itinerary we had planned for them. The sugar cookie decorating, bounce house, giant double slide, hilarious balloon artist, magical sweets table, s’mores, hot chocolate and a snow-pit made this the prettiest, most charming party ever for this sweet little girl’s big day.

With help from her big sister, Amira, Giulia blew out the candle on her first birthday cake. The cake was made by Alicia from Delish Cakes in Bloomingdale but the banner was designed and created by Pastiche Events.
