Cupcakes, Cupcakes Everywhere!

As Christy and I continue to grow our bakery business, we are always looking for new methods and techniques that we can add to our repertoire. We've been able to work quite a bit on our sugar cookies as we have been very busy with Spring Bouquet orders, developing Easter cookies and our now finalized Mothers' Day Bouquet. It is so much fun to be able to work together towards a common goal while doing what we truly enjoy! Christy's kids are on Spring Break this week, so we decided to look for a project that they would be able to enjoy with us as well. These cupcakes looked like a perfect place to start. Neither Christy nor I have had any experience playing with fondant and it has been high on our "must try" list for quite some time. I don't want to speak for Christy, but I can say that working with fondant might be my new favorite thing! :) From kneading it out, to flavoring, coloring, rolling, cutting, smoothing, etc. I had so much fun along the way and was almost sad to see the last cupcake finished! The best thing about it was that it was a method that we were able to include Christy's girls with-- and they were right alongside us, helping all the way. Christy's blog has some great 'action' shots of her girls at work! We had so much fun and couldn't believe our eyes when we looked at the clock and saw how much time had passed! We were so busy working (and laughing) that the day was over before we knew it. I just can't wait until my little girl is old enough to play as well! If you asked me, though, she seemed to enjoy the process all the same!
