Otherwise "Day of the Dead" in English! These were a last minute idea that I had for the Halloween page I had on my website www.ditziecakes.com. I couldn't believe how many orders I got for this cupcake. The flavors were to be simple...either deviluscious, vanilla bean or a dark red velvet. The work however on these was just solid laborious. Can I make them any simpler next time? Nah, I just love making things complicated. Anyway, they were a crowd pleaser. I had made the Day of the Dead for an old friend of mine who works for Brighton. You know the really great place that designs handbags, wallets, jewelry and accessories. I hope your fellow employees enjoyed the cupcakes this afternoon Catherine Hong! Sorry, I didn't get a chance to see you today. But let's try it again!
May all of these creative whimsies of mine delight the cupcake connoisseurs and let the fashion couturists come together in this fanciful blog I have created for you! Ditzie Cakes loves to make pretty things! Come and share with me! -Andie

Today, I delivered these cupcakes for Liam's 1st Birthday party held at a quaint little park in Laguna Beach overlooking the ocean! Half the fun is seeing how people pull together a unique theme to celebrate their special day! Alison was blowing up at least twenty beachballs for the children and adults to play with! It was so nice to see a party coming together! I hope they liked the cupcakes....because I really had a lot of fun making them.

I really couldn't help myself on this Rosie the Riviter idea! I really like Palin and this reminds me of the strength and courage of the ladies during World War II. The image most iconically associated with Rosie the Riveter is J. Howard Miller's famous poster for Westinghouse, entitled We Can Do It!, which was modeled on Michigan factory worker Geraldine Doyle in 1942. Gosh! I wish I can make a hundred buttons out of this so I can pass them out before our November vote!

Autumn is here and Krista and Geoff were having a reception to all their guests who couldn't make it to Canada to see them say their vows. I couldn't wait to play off their Autumn Theme. To pull it all off, my brother made me me this outstanding cupcake tier! I wish I just had better photographs to show you...but it looked amazing!!! Thanks BuBu!!!
