For Baby's Baptism...why not serve cupcakes!

In May, a friend asked if I would make 10 dozen cupcakes for her grandson's baptism. She gave me the freedom to choose any flavor I would like to make. Deciding on the flavors was the toughest part! Here's the lineup:

Almond cupcakes, filled with raspberry preserves, and topped with an almond buttercream and toasted, sugared almonds. The inspiration for these came from that Sky High cookbook I've been talking so much about.

Coconut cupcakes.

Hostess cupcakes: chocolate cupcakes with a marshmallow creme filling and topped with an espresso chocolate glaze and garnished with vanilla buttercream piping.
Banana Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins topped with Banana Ganache Frosting and garnished with a dried banana chip.

Vanilla cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting, garnished with real chocolate sprinkles.

Vanilla Cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing garnished with pastel sprinkles.


  1. My Heavens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So many cupcakes! So little time!!! I didn't understand the magnitude of your project until I scrolled through picture, after scrumptious picture!

  2. I have got to get that book. I might have to break down and order it.

  3. I'm hungry. There's nothing like something good from Marzipan to cure that!
