Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Tinted Vanilla Cream Cheese Buttercream

Hello Spring!!  It doesn’t matter what the cupcake might be… this garden is ready for any party.

I needed color and the sun was out.  Say no more.

Let’s start with a delicious Carrot Cake Cupcake.


I love the cinnamon-y goodness of this cake and the natural sweetness from the pineapple, carrots, and coconut.


Once these were cooled, they were ready to decorate.

I used a Wilton 103 Rose Tip for these blooming cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream.  I chose my colors based on retired pastel Homer Laughlin Fiesta Dinnerware Demitasse Cups.  I up-ended the cup to make the cupcake stand base and turned the handle away from the camera.



The itty-bitty white non-pareils make for a delicate center.

Having a few minutes to work with shapes and colors, I tried a different perspective.  Tone on tone on tone makes for a wonderful image.

Switching things up was successful as well.

It is Spring and I couldn’t be happier.

I love that my life partner are still expanding our love for one another.

I love that our kids visit us and we’re in each other’s lives.

I love that sobriety remains a priority.
