Raspberry Cream Cupcake

The fourth and final style of cupcake that we offer… for now!  I was so pleased with how the raspberry icing turned out on this one.  Not too overpowering, but far from mild.  It’s a sweet little cupcake that looks great by itself or in a group.  At the craft shows, I display these cupcakes in a tray that looks like I just pulled them out of the oven.  Looks amazing!

Just in time for summer, one of my newest favorites is this watermelon rendition.  When I showed it off to my friends I got a great reaction as immediately I was selling them faster than I could make them!  This watermelon candle is the perfect summertime edition for any picnic table.
