Cupcake Dreams

Remember this post from Rachael? As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for Jeff's niece. She turns 5 on St. Patrick's Day and her birthday party is this weekend. She loves to bake so a cupcake basket should be a big hit. It was fun putting together everything. Above is a cute little token I found at a local gift shop.

I had a hard time finding cupcake paper believe it or not! I finally found this wrapping paper online. The J is from say it with letters! and is in their Olive Juice font.


A cute cupcake apron I found here after some good steering from Sadie Lou. The cupcake barrettes I found here.

Williams Sonoma proved to be a treasure trove. I found this perfect spatula, the child size rolling pin and pastry mat...


...and my favorite find - this adorable cupcake holder. This holds one cupcake perfectly so it can be carried in a school bag for a special treat and the frosting won't get all messed up (I remember so looking forward to my cupcake snack only to find messy frosting - wasn't that the worst?)
Some sprinkles, cupcake papers, and a custom Pink Cupcake recipe for the birthday girl.

I hope she likes it!

Hugs,
