Tropical Love at the Kona Kai

 Today I had the pleasure of being the wedding baker for newlyweds, Matt and Courtney. They tied the knot at a local Point Loma church and had their reception at the Kona Kai Resort and Hotel on Shelter Island. I had so much fun preparing for this event and enjoyed the process all day today. I kept thanking the cake Gods for blessing me for making today a breeze. When I got to the resort I quickly found the Point Loma room and got started setting up. I met the florist, who by the way was fabulous as you can tell just by what she did on my tower and the surrounding area. I love a great florist! Once we had everything setup I was in awe of my presentation and quickly realized that I want to start advertising a little more to keep the orders coming on in! To Matt and Courtney, I know you weren't in love with the idea of even having cake at your wedding, I just hope you and your guests enjoyed your cupcakes as much as I did baking them. Thank you for choosing me! Have fun on your honeymoon lovebirds!


I set out six frames to identify each of the six flavors: Vanilla Bean Cake w/ Vanilla Bean Buttercream, Fresh Strawberry Cake w/ Almond Buttercream, Devils Food w/ Dark Chocolate Buttercream, Red Velvet w/ Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese, Vanilla Bean Cake w/ Dark Chocolate Buttercream and Devils Food w/ Bailey's Buttercream. Is your mouth watering? 

I made these cupcake picks, it's my new obsession.

Bad, Bad Cupcake Blogger

I have been extremely bad about updating this blog, and I apologize to my two readers! ha ha. I have been very busy baking, almost everyday I have off at the restaurant I am fulfilling cupcake orders. This is great for me, those receiving the yummy cakes and for my kitchen! I have perfected my vanilla cupcake recipe which excites me considering it is the hardest cupcake flavor for me to bake. I have a lot of orders coming up this summer and new and exciting things will be coming from my kitchen! Keep reading, I promise I will try and update again before another two months roll-on by.
