This past weekend was my nieces 12th birthday party and she requested my White Velvet Raspberry cupcakes for her party. The first time I made these for a client, they were all pink and super cute! But I knew my niece wasn’t exactly a pink girl… she is more into turquoise and lime green and those kinds of colors. So, I went on a hunt to make these cupcakes match her personality!
I started looking on Etsy to find some liners which would match perfectly for my niece and found turquoise with green polka dot liners. I mean really, it’s like they were made just for her! So super cute!! I ordered them and they arrived the morning I was baking the cupcakes. Well….. unfortunately, the company I ordered them from sent me the wrong liners.
<-the ones I wanted
Apparently, she had two liners with the same name and sent me the other ones. Needless to say, I wasn’t very happy and I didn’t have time to search out a local store potentially an hour away just for new liners. So, I made do with these and wrote an email to the company I bought them from. (Who didn’t really offer much help other than a discount on a future order. It’s not like these things are that expensive, so a discount?? lol no, I’m good. Thanks)
After I got over that little fiasco, it was time to make the cupcakes and they turned out amazing! Made a special pedestal for my niece to hold one perfect cupcake just for her and she was thrilled with it. I told her that she’ll be able to put the pedestal on her dresser next to her jewelry box and keep her special rings and necklaces and such on them.
I also created several pedestals with some fun things I found at thrift stores. A couple of them even matched the cupcakes perfectly!
And finally…. the birthday girl with her cupcake and pedestal!
Emily was so happy with these cupcakes and loved everything about them! Everyone at the party gave me rave reviews and some even said they were the best cupcakes they’ve ever tasted! YAY me!!! I got two referrals and hopefully they’ll turn into orders!
