I would like to start this post by saying THANK YOU to all our clients and readers as Blue Cupcake celebrates it's 3rd anniversary! Three years of cupcakes and cakes, farmer's markets, deliveries, trip to the stores, answering emails and retuning calls, learning and meeting amazing people... Not to forget, LONG hours of work and many sleepless nights! But looking back, it is all well worth the ride!

Also, a big thanks to everyone who came to see us at the Cupcake Challenge last week. It was an incredibly busy week for us, and the event was just as crazy! So many people, so many bakeries and chefs, food bloggers... Just to give you an idea, we served 1300 cupcakes in less than 2 hours. So much fun!!

And now the pictures! Here are some "boy" themed cakes, cupcakes and desserts we did in the past few weeks. This first one was for a birthday party, you've guessed it, during Super Bowl weekend. The colors are based on the invitation.

This second cake was for a train party. Our amazingly talented intern and I worked together on this cake, trying out new techniques and ideas to create something original. Special thanks to Ernae for inventing the "gravel" tool!

And those last images were provided by our client (Photography: Robe Photo), who celebrated his son first birthday this past weekend at The COOP in Studio City. The cake, cupcakes and desserts are inspired by the famous Mickey Mouse. Since we always do our own twist on licensed characters, we suggested to make a figurine of the birthday boy wearing Mickey's ears. It gives the cake a very personal touch, and a sugar figurine as a keepsake!

"We were overjoyed when we saw the amazing creation of our son's birthday cake!
The beautifully crafted creations were matched with delicious flavors
that made our tongues very satisfied and smiles from ear to ear.
Simply awesome!!!
Thank you for the wonderful service from beginning to our last bite."
