So…for all of those that missed it, here is a recap of the first ever Miss Cupcake Valentine’s Cupcake Class! (There were lots of sprinkles involved)
Now that my new logos are officially here, and wonderfully amazing, I have decided that I must show them to everyone. I’m planning on putting them on napkins, bookmarks (as shown above), business cards (of course), meat stamps (all the rage these days), maybe even mailboxes! I love that Miss Cupcake now has a “brand.” This single image binds together the thousands of words, hundreds of recipes, and hours of work!
So back to the cupcake class…I made a “game plan” of the days events.
It was Super Bowl Sunday.
Each guest received a complimentary mini mailbox and Miss Cupcake bottle of water. (Because who doesn’t need one of those?)
I set the table in pinks and reds because it was Valentine’s Day…and I felt acting like a little girl again
When I say again, I actually mean still.
I made up a schlew of cupcakes, ranging in flavor.
Lots and lots.
I taught the lovely folks lots of little decorating tricks and Valentine’s card ideas.
Isn’t this one great? Instead of giving cards with no goodies inside, why not give cupcake Valentine cards, as shown above. They are great for name favors too!
Cupcake Valentine Favors
One decorated cupcake
24 Valentine cards and envelopes (or any season cards/name tags)
Decorate the card inside, write the name of the person who the favor is for on the envelope of the card.
Place a toothpick on the backside of the envelope, with a large part of the pick sticking out the bottom.
Tape the top of the toothpick to the back of the envelope.
Stick the envelope pick into the cupcake.
Best. Valentine. Ever.
Yet another table view.
I liked the table, ok?
And the lovely guests!
There were sprinkles, nonpareils, and conversation hearts, oh my!
And of course there were cute snacks. Heart shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just make me want to giggle.
And the drink of choice among the youth of this generation.
There was lots of icing and a cute little book of my goodies that I had made.
And yes, that IS a cupcake tablecloth.
Now for the action shots. I gave them a “How to roll fondant” lesson.
Here is the chocolate station!
They were VERY interested
Everyone got into it!
Gracie was a fondant feign.

A new found wonder…CHOCOLATE COVERED CUPCAKES ON A STICK.
I mean, it’s kind of a big deal.
Some of the student’s chocolate box cupcakes.
And then…because everyone was so creative…I decided to hold a “decorate the best cupcake” challenge. I judged based on creativity, enginuity, and awesomeness. Let me tell you…this was not easy. However, a winner had to be crowned. So, my mother as I put out brains together and viola…..
