UPDATE: Happy Birthday, Sesame Street Fans!

Cookie Monster Cupcakes - Fun At Any Age!

Sesame Street Cupcakes Were As Fun To Make As They Are To Eat!

I have to give a special shout-out to a great friend of mine who has been very supportive in my entrepreneurial endeavor, personally placing orders and offering referrals regularly. She knows who she is, and I can’t thank her enough. Most recently, she passed along a request from a friend who saw a picture of some really cute cupcakes online. They were prepared by a store in New Jersey and resembled Elmo and Cookie Monster. This friend wanted to make them herself but confessed that she didn’t think she had the skills to do so, and asked if I might be willing to take up the challenge. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to try a new design! The idea was so playful and inventive, and I thought the project would be amusing and a little challenging. The faces turned out great regardless of a minor freakout and squabble with my husband at 2am, and I was very pleased with the outcome. For my next test of will, I hope to tackle the entire Sesame Street gang. Look out, Big Bird and Oscar, you’re next!

The Newest Addition To Our Cake Collection

This cake was a big hit at Miles's first birthday party!

I always love when my clients ask for a custom cake. It allows me to get creative, which is one of the primary reasons I chose catering. Unlike at a restaurant or hotel, where the regular menu rarely changes, I create a new menu for each client, keeping in mind any special requests. So when a friend of mine recently asked that I make a monkey cake for his son’s first birthday, I was absolutely delighted. The cake he chose happened to be vanilla, frosted with vanilla buttercream, although any flavor combination is possible with the monkey cake. I had tremendous amount of fun making him and would love to do so again.

For a truly festive birthday celebration, order a specially designed monkey cake and Julia’s Kitchen will deliver him right to your door. Also please check out the Children’s Cakes photo gallery for other great children’s cakes ideas!
