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.




Here is a sample of this weeks blooms.

Purple and white…








Pinks and reds…

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…




If you would like to place an order for “MUFFIECAKES” please email me at or message me on Facebook or Instagram. I offer boxes of six and twelve, or bouquets of seven and twelve. Larger orders may also be ordered on a per quote basis. I look forward to hearing from you!




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 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!
