Celebration of Three Decades!

When I got this order, I knew it was going to be something fun to make. The cupcake toppers signified three decades of greatness: first decade was represented by the Sheffield Wednesday Football Club, the second decade was represented by the London beefeater, and third decade was represented by the yellow NYC taxi cab. The cupcake toppers rested on top of chocolate rose cupcakes filled with raspberry jam, which provided a great personal touch for the celebration gift! 

 

Lookin' Fine Baby Boy!

What better way to welcome a baby boy than to have a well-dressed man themed party? Our cupcakes were beautifully adorned with cute decorations of this sort -  full of mustaches, bowties and ties!

Hello Kitty Bridal Shower!

When my friend requested for Hello Kitty themed cupcakes, I happy obliged. She placed an order for two delicious flavors - chocolate rose and chrysanthemum tea - with the addition of the bride-to-be's name spelled on top. After brainstorming how to combine the use of letters and Hello Kitty, I began the project. Cuteness overload!

I started with baking the cupcakes and then worked on the decorations separately. I started by cutting out a Hello Kitty picture and made it my template. After rolling out the white fondant, I carefully cut out the shape of Hello Kitty. After that I added red coloring to a small portion of white fondant for her bows and letters.

With the use of some alphabet stencils, I cut out the shapes of letters and placed "glued them" (using buttercream frosting) to the other parts to fully assemble the head. The final touches included using black royal icing to mark as whiskers and bow details.

Once the Hello Kitty heads were properly put together I put them on top of the cupcakes.

All done for everyone to enjoy!

Qucena's and Daniel's Wedding - Cookies & Mini Whoopies!

The couple - Qucena Hui and Daniel Yao - got married this past weekend on July 20th in the beautiful Medinah Country Club. I had the honor of providing some baked goods for their dessert table. Being that Qucena is the biggest fan of purple, I incorporated purple as much as I could to the desserts without taking away from the wedding theme.

Pictured in the gallery are frosted sugar cookies in shapes of the bride, groom and wedding cake with a message. Mini Ovaltine whoopie pies were provided to the guests as well, packed in a small cellophane bag with purple ribbon.

All the guests seem to have enjoyed the take-home desserts since there were none left by the end of the night! If you are interested in having customized cookies at your wedding, please fill out a Contact Us form or email terry@filledwithsweets.com!

Margaret Cho's & Nick Chan's Wedding!

Hurricane Sandy definitely hit the east coast with a force, but not enough to stop Margaret Cho's & Nick Chan's wedding that happened this past Saturday. This couple celebrated this momentous occasion in NYC and asked Filled With Sweets to provide wedding favors for their guests.

Each person received two snickerdoodle whoopie pies, perfect for the fall season and a popular flavor! Each whoope pie was placed in a clear cellophane bag, with a small piece of parchment paper in between. A customized sticker was created for them, and then each bag was wrapped with a satin purple ribbon. Beautiful and delicious!
