First Cupcake Cake - thanks again to Cali4Dawn

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I made my first cupcake cake this weekend for my family's Easter dinner. It turned out great except for the extremely scary dark purple freehand bunny that I put on top for decoration...the reason you don't see a picture here. icon_redface.gif

I wanted to put out a huge thank you to Dawn for her tutorial on cupcake cakes...I had never even heard of a cupcake cake before I came to this site. I filled them (which I didn't know you could do) with a Bizmark tip, leveled them and iced them the "Dawn" way and I was very pleased with how it looked...just like a cool yet oddly shaped cake...you really couldn't tell they were cupcakes from the top.

Thanks to Dawn, to this site and to all of you who provide helpful tips and support.

BTW, I used meringue-free icing...worked this all out with hubby (thanks for all your support through that whole ordeal),

Hi, suzyqqq27. I am so glad that things are looking up for you. I knew that once your hubby came down from his fear for your baby that he would know that this was in your heart. I am glad to see you back to your old baking ways. And I would even like to see the whole scary bunny thing!! Welcome back! Happy Baking!!

Yippeee!!!! Yahoo!!!!!! Glad to see you back. I'm so happy to hear that the instructions worked well for you.

As for stopping to decorate... we all need a stress relief. I actually became more ill when NOT doing something I loved. It's a judgment call only you can make, not even hubby.
