More monkey cupcakes and cupcake baby rattles

Here are some monkey cupcakes I did a while back as practice. This was the original colors and monkey for the baby shower I just did (posted somewhere below) but the colors and monkey face changed before the actual day arrived months later. When they asked for a monkey I knew I would practice because I hadn't done those before. I just wanted to see if I could make it look like a monkey. I said no (I am my worst critic) and everyone else said yes. This was also around the same time I was trying out the baby rattles and turned these into rattles too. I think the rattle idea is adorable. Not just with these but with any design you want. I have a different design on them I posted a while back. I just think it is a super cute idea for baby showers. So here are some more monkey cupcakes...

Baseball cupcakes x 23 dozen

I was asked a while ago to do a baseball themed cupcake to which I immediately said yes and did a practice batch (you've seen those on here in a past post). Then a few weeks ago I was asked if I could up the amount to 23 dozen to which I immediately started sucking my thumb while curled into the fetal position (just kidding!!). I had never done that many in one set before so I was wondering how it would go and where I would go with that many cupcakes in the kitchen. So with a little nervousness I started baking. I found a system right away that kept it running smooth and it ended up working out perfectly.
Here are some pictures I took while I was decorating...

loading them up to deliver

After I get done baking I always ALWAYS take a picture of the set of cupcakes to put on here. I have a picture of every set of finished cupcakes I have ever made. I was so upset the day I delivered them because I realized I did not take a picture of the finished cupcakes all together. The only ones I had were the couple of cellphone pictures I had taken to send my cousin and a couple of me making the baseballs (all the pictures above). After I told them this the wonderful ladies sent me a couple of pictures for me to see how they looked when they were set up on the table. I was so happy to be able to see this. I thought the whole thing turned out so cute and they did a great job with the theme AND I got a picture to put on here. YAY!!

Flower Cluster Cupcakes

One of my favorite (and I think one of the prettiest) designs to do on the cupcakes is this one. I think it is one of those that always turn out pretty no matter what colors you are using. I call it a flower cluster because that is what it reminds me of. Others might not think so but it is what I see when looking at it :)
