Making Progress

It has been a busy week. I have already fulfilled several orders and have more to go so a big THANK YOU to everyone for your support.

I have been taking advantage of some down time and practicing away. I was able to make a sample of a one dozen cupcake bouquet in purples and blues. They are on a base wrapped in tissue paper, a bow, and covered in a clear protective bag.

This is a smaller version of a “Baker’s Half Dozen” bouquet I made last week.

I had an order for a half dozen boxed pinks; my favorite colors!

All boxed orders come tied with three strands of complimentary colored ribbon and have a see through top.

I have several Valentine orders, so for the week, I just made the flowers and will apply on freshly made cupcakes. I am finding that it is better to pre make the flowers so they have a chance to harden. To put them directly onto the cupcake makes them look more wilted.

And I color I cannot name. I made it out of all the leftover cream because I can’t waste it!

This is a current shot of my kitchen table. Thank goodness the holidays are over or I’d be in trouble. Fortunately I still have my island space…

A NEW VENTURE!

I have reinvented myself!! After working for 40 years as an Interior Designer, I have hung up the fabric samples and paint chips. I have been trying for a while to find something new that was fun and creative. I recently stumbled upon some photos of custom decorated cupcakes and started to watch videos to see how it was done. I bought all the supplies and started experimenting and from there I decided that this is what I want to do!

For the past week I have been testing frostings, colors and techniques. I have wasted a lot of ingredients, made a lot of mistakes and almost gave up.  However, I am now at the point I can “open my doors for business.” I have changed my Instagram handle to @muffiecakesbysusieq.  Please visit to see more photos of my progress.

I am offering boxes and bouquets of 12 cupcakes, bouquets of 7, and boxes of 6. Feel free to email me at smniblo@yahoo.com for orders and pricing. Pick your colors and choice of cake. Unfortunately, for now these cannot be shipped. Orders must be picked up, or possibly can be delivered.

I look forward hearing from you!
